Friday Finds-Feb. 6

Should Be Reading asks you to share what books you discovered this week that interest you!

Here is what I found this week:

From Savvy Verse and Wit I found Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One by Sharon Lathan.

Here is a brief summary of Two Becomes One from
Sharon Lathan presents Mr & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy, the sweetest, most romantic Jane Austen sequel.
The first in a series that follows Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy from their wedding day into married life, Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy is inspired by the Keira Knightley/Matthew MacFayden movie. The author vividly imagines this young and energetic couple as they immerse themselves in their profound love and face the challenges of their era.

Elizabeth and Darcy are positively goo-goo eyes for each other and the burgeoning love and closeness between them drives the plot. As the narrative unfolds through the honeymoon and then the challenges of Elizabeth assuming the role of Mistress of Pemberley, Darcy and Elizabeth thoroughly reveal their differing points of view of how their relationship blossomed from misunderstanding to perfect understanding. As the couple grows in maturity and understanding, as they accustom themselves to each other and to married life, Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy emerges as a fascinating portrait of a deep and passionate marriage.

This novel sounds like it shows a more passionate side to the Darcy's life together-I am looking forward to this one!

From J. Kaye's Book Blog I found True Colors by Kristin Hannah.

Here is a very brief summary of True Colors from Kristin Hannah's website:

True Colors is New York Times bestselling author Kristin Hannah’s most provocative, compelling, and heart-wrenching story yet. With the luminous writing and unforgettable characters that are her trademarks, she tells the story of three sisters whose once-solid world is broken apart by jealousy, betrayal, and the kind of passion that rarely comes along.

I really enjoy stories that focus on the family dynamics between sisters, so I think this will be right up my alley!

What did you find this week?

I love stories about sisters and since I also have two, this one sounds good. (I was just remarking to my sister recently that it's pretty rare to come across trios of sisters in books, as opposed to families of two sisters.)

All of these P&P spinoffs always get my attention, but I've never read any. Maybe this will be the one!

I just got 'True Colors' in my mail. It looks like a good read.

Thanks Jo-Jo for adding in my novel to your Friday Finds! The reviews are rolling in and so far so good! I appreciate the support and links to my website. Hopefully your readers will pop over and check it out. Every little bit of publicity helps, but the truth is that I just so adore my HEA take on the Darcys and I want everyone to experience the joy that so many of my fans already have.

I'm hopelessly addicted to Jane Austen sequels! I haven't heard of Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy, actually -- I'll add it to my wishlist! :) I just got An Assembly Such As This, another P&P spin-off, in the mail yesterday!
