About The Book

Sophie Johnson appears to be living the perfect life. She has landed her dream job as managing director of The Jane Austen Dating Agency and is dating the world’s most desirable man, Darcy Drummond.
But all is not as it seems. The relationship with Darcy is failing to live up to expectations and his awful mother is determined to cause trouble. To add to Sophie’s problems, the agency is struggling to attract enough eligible men, she has a Regency wedding to plan, and then there’s the amusing and disturbingly cute Henry Baxter who is making it hard for her to concentrate.
The problem is Sophie wants it all, but in trying to manage everything, she’s in danger of losing what matters most.
Can she keep the dating agency afloat and find her own happy ever after? Or is business and romance an impossible combination?


My Thoughts

Who has never dreamed at least once to find the perfect partner; the one that will understand you, make you smile and love your eccentricities? 
At the Jane Austen Dating Agency they also have to love Regency romances, because who knows better what love is than Jane Austen?
This is a modern story, full of love and the search for the perfect love. Because this is what our main character, Sophie, is trying to do with her agency, help people to find love. As you can imagine love is not easy to find or to accept to want; also, that you think you have found your loved one doesn’t mean that it could transform into a frog… But that’s love and the interesting part of looking for the perfect someone, don’t you think?
This is the second book of the series “The Jane Austen Dating Agency”, but you can read it as standalone, all the details are well explained and you’ll not feel lost.
About the story, I enjoyed Sophie’s character, her eagerness to help everyone and how easy it is for her to connect with other people. But as you can imagine I didn’t like all the characters, but I think this is what the author wanted, you can not like everyone always, and that no one is perfect.
There’s a little mystery involved in the story and made me keep guessing what’s really happening between closed doors. Also, even if the end has a closure, there’s a little bit of a hanger and I can’t wait to discover what will happen next!

About The Author

As a young child, Fiona spent hours reading, curling up with a book was one of her favourite past times. Her current volume would accompany her everywhere, to school, on day trips, holidays and visits. The idea of providing an imaginary world in which others can escape is a wonderful one and this became Fiona’s dream, to become a published author. From an early age, Fiona’s parents encouraged her writing – commencing when they gave her a simple red lined exercise book. Soon she had a collection of notebooks, small, large, plain, The Snowman, Brambly Hedge, they all became full of her jottings. Years later, Fiona studied for a Combined Arts Degree at Durham, then a Masters in English – writing her thesis on Jane Austen and Masculinity. In total contrast she went to work for a top fashion magazine in London, then various marketing posts. Four lovely daughters later, during which time she has graduated from laughing at Mrs Bennet to sympathising with her, she continued to scribble away, only the notebooks are somewhat bigger. Fiona has written for national magazines on diverse subjects from Jane Austen to caravanning! One morning the idea came to her for ‘The Jane Austen Dating Agency’ and this was the first book she just had to write. Fiona obviously loves writing, especially romantic comedy, meeting with friends and family, dancing, walks by the sea and escaping into a book whilst consuming a worrying amount of chocolate.
