Fan of Jane Austen? Why not try the beloved books all mashed together. Six young ladies - five sisters and a country cousin - live their lives straight from trashy novels. Nonetheless, all must find husbands or spend the rest of their lives at Longbore embroidering sofa cushions and mittens for the cat. Will countrified ninny Fanny Anne wed Wentworth or her cousin? Will they all swoon at Mr Darcy's wet shirt? Come dine on gold-plated truffles, ducked goose, and snails in aspic while discovering everyone's salacious secrets. With Admiral Haughtyton drop-kicking poodles and hiding wildly gothic secrets, a squirrel army declaring war on flighty Marianne Catherine, and everyone falling for the wrong suitor in Marrytown, the Regency has never been sillier.
