Very Inspiring Blogger Award!


I was nominated by Colette Saucier for the 
Very Inspiring Blogger Award!

Colette’s blog The writings and ramblings of Colette Saucier is an amazing blog itself! Besides blogging, Colette has also published two books, Pulse and Prejudice and All My Tomorrows. She is in the process of writing Dearest Bloodiest Elizabeth, a sequel to Pulse and Prejudice. She also publishes The Night Pulse e-Magazine. In short, Colette runs circles around me! So, when she nominated my humble little blog I was very honored! 

Thank you, Colette!

As part of this Award I have to tell you seven facts about me.

7 Things About Candy:

  • I am the mother of five children. Although, not all are children anymore! ;)
  • My days are busy homeschooling my youngest two kids.
  • In high school, I belonged to the FFA (Future Farmer of America) and raised a lamb to show at the county fair. That was a ton of fun!
  • I used to sew all the time. I even when to college to get an Associates Degree as a seamstress. I didn’t finish, but I took most of the sewing classes. I was pretty good at it, but I’m rusty now.
  • I am a major homebody. I hate to go anywhere (except Disneyland! Hehe!), but I do like road trips!
  • I’ve been to Laura Ingalls Wilders house in Mansfield, Missouri. Someday, I hope to visit Jane Austen’s home in Chawton.

Review and GIVEAWAY: Loving Miss Darcy by Nancy Kelley

Loving Miss Darcy is a sweet story that focuses on Georgiana Darcy and Colonel Fitzwilliam. The Colonel is my favorite secondary character in Pride and Prejudice, and I’m so excited when he gets the spotlight! I was looking forward to reading it, and Kelley did a wonderful job!

It is time for Georgiana Darcy’s first Season. She will be having her court presentation and coming out. What should be an exciting time for a young lady, is a time of anxiety and dread for Georgiana. Although a few years have gone by since her near-elopement with Wickham, Georgiana  is still worried the truth will come out. She is also worried that she will not be able to tell the “Wickhams” from the honorable gentlemen. Darcy and Colonel Fitzwilliam are there to make sure that doesn’t happen, but can they keep the fortune hunters away and keep her secret from being revealed? 

I loved watching Colonel Fitzwilliam as he discovers he loves Georgiana, and not just as a beloved cousin. At first, he doesn't understand his dread of her marrying someone else and his jealousy as he watches her dance with other men. I also loved hearing a bit more about his work during the war and meeting some of his close army buddies. This is the Colonel that I love! 

My new favorite character is Sebastian Montgomery!  I love his uncanny way of knowing EVERYTHING about someone. He can read a person well! Something else interesting about Sebastian is that he and Kitty seem to fit together well. I would love to see move of them together! 

I was getting a bit tired of Georgiana’s anxieties and feelings of unworthiness, but that’s Georgiana. You would think she would have more faith in Darcy and Fitzwilliam! They would never let a rogue near her if they could help it. Although, I’m sure their over-protectiveness did not help Georgiana’s securities -- they seem to reinforce her beliefs that she is a bad judge of character. 

I really enjoyed Loving Miss Darcy! It is a beautiful regency romance. This is Nancy Kelley’s second book, her first book, His Good Opinion, is a retelling of Pride and Prejudice from Darcy’s point-of-view (read my review here).

I was given an ARC e-copy by the author for my honest review.

5 out of 5 stars.
