“We are all rebellious teenagers. Sometimes we grow out of it, and sometimes we don’t.” Kelly Asbury
Book 1: Darcy’s Race to Love: a variation of Austen’s Pride and Prejudice that features the race car circuit. Darcy senior is still living and owns the cars that Darcy and others drive. Bingley is his sidekick and George Wickham is still involved with the family… until he wears out his welcome.
“I think all teenagers feel alone, and that nobody else knows what they are going through and all that sort of stuff.” Nicholas Hoult
Book 2: Georgie’s Redemption: picks up the story where book one left off. It is not a stand-a-lone. There is background knowledge that the reader needs to know in order to understand book two. Georgie [Georgiana Darcy] is a rebellious teenager determined to have her own way and no one… no one is going to tell her what to do, nor will she submit to any punishment strategies the family [her father and brother] attempt to use on her. Darcy and Elizabeth are married in this book.
“When a relationship of love is disrupted, the relationship does not cease. The love continues; therefore, the relationship continues. The work of grief is to reconcile and redeem life to a different love relationship.” W. Scott Lineberry
Elizabeth’s relationship with her family was practically nonexistent. They were featured in book one and were barely mentioned in this book. When they were on the page, they were causing innumerable problems. I was really disgusted with them and their behavior toward Elizabeth. The scene at the dinner table seemed a little unrealistic, but then this is the author’s universe.
“Redemption is not perfection. The redeemed must realize their imperfections.” John Piper
Georgiana’s story is hard to read. She is headstrong, stubborn, rebellious and determined to do what she wants, when she wants. She sulks at her restrictions and consequences and sneaks out of the house with results that are disastrous. This is one lessons she will not soon forget.
Those that love the race car circuit will enjoy the details provided in describing what is necessary in getting a driver and his car toward the winning circle. That was interesting as I know nothing about race car.
There is a lot of telling and not enough showing. The action was quick, fast and like a car speeding by… it was a blur and I hardly saw much of it. The action was so quick and fast that I hardly know what happened. I would have liked it fleshed out a bit more. The romance was stilted and felt contrived. I simply did not feel the romance. I was told about it, but didn’t feel/experience it. And I don’t mean explicit scenes as I feel those are not necessary. I am glad and appreciate that this was a clean story.
NOTE: This series should be read in order; what takes place in the first book is important to understanding the second book.
BOOK 2: GEORGIE’S REDEMPTION (3 stars)
The Premise: In this sequel to Darcy’s Race to Love, Will and Liz are enjoying married life together yet at the same time dealing with some major family issues. Will’s sister, Georgie, who recently became entangled with someone who is bad news, has now run away…
My Thoughts: Here is a bit more conflict than we see in Darcy’s Race to Love. Not only is Georgie’s well-being and relationship with her family causing concern, but Liz is facing some issues with her own relations. It is an interesting dynamic change to see a Georgiana/father relationship, rather than sibling. While I enjoyed Georgie’s storyline in this story, I appreciated more how some parallels were drawn between Georgie’s family and Liz’s. I only wish we saw a more satisfying resolution for Liz’s family situation.
I really enjoyed how Ms. Burton combined her love of Pride and Prejudice with another great passion of hers! I always love when authors find ways to infuse their own interests into their work. 😉 I enjoyed the racing aspects of these stories and would gladly read more Austenesque works set in this high-speed and thrilling environment. However, I did often find myself wishing for less narration in both these stories, mostly everything readers know of these characters is told to them. We see very few internal thoughts from Liz and Will and their verbal exchanges are often succinct and seldom. With the fast-paced events of this story and the lack of insight into their thoughts and emotions, it was hard to connect to these characters. However, this may be a specific style choice of the author. And while some readers may enjoy this style, I’m afraid my preference leans towards more showing less telling. Despite these feelings though, I am happy I gave this unique series by Zoe Burton a try.
