I apologise for us being slower than normal recently, we have all had a lot on. We are now back though.
Over the past week I have read Tracy Kiely's Murder at Longbourn which I really enjoyed. The story is of a character called Elizabeth Parker who is planning New Year's resolutions after her boyfriend has recently cheated on her. She visits her Aunt Winnie's home who is hosting a murder mystery party on New Year's Eve. Rather predictably a party guest ends up dead and the rest of the story involves Elizabeth trying to solve the crime. The story is witty and had me laughing out loud in parts, many of Jane Austen's themes and characters are drawn upon and it is an engaging, fun read.
Chapter 12 starts with Thornton Wilder's quote "It's when you're safe at home that you wish you were having an adventure. When you're having an adventure you wish you were safe at home."
This stood out for me as I am always striving to have more adventure in my life, but when I do, I always think and long for the comforts of home.
