Book recommendation

Just a short book recommendation today. Never in a million years would I have thought of shipping Susan Price and Mary Crawford (from Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park) but I couldn’t not buy this book when I stumbled upon it. And I’m glad I did; I really enjoyed this short little story.

So if you have a few minutes, want a F/F historical short that is a Jane Austen fanfic, may I recommend Her Particular Friend by JL Merrow?


48496929._SY475_When Susan Price leaves Mansfield Park to accompany her aunt, Lady Bertram, to take the waters in Bath, she little expects to meet an old “friend” of the family. Initially scandalised, Susan finds herself drawn to the former Mary Crawford, now a widow, Mrs Lynd.

Mary has lost none of her playful spirit in the ten years since her family’s acquaintance with the Bertrams ended amid elopement and scandal. Her interest, first piqued by Susan’s resemblance to her older sister Fanny, only grows on discovering Susan’s very different character.

But Lady Bertram will surely never countenance Susan’s intimacy with the woman whose brother caused her daughter’s disgrace — and Mary’s true identity cannot be kept a secret forever.

      1. Please, please, please, read The Plumber’s Mate series. You won’t regret it. The romance arc is basically a progression through the series, not the dreaded yanking away of a solid HEA given after the first book. No cliffhangers on the story, and left with nice HFNs.
