Love in the Fast Lane

Overall Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Source: Review Copies from Author

In a modern-day adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, author Zoe Burton takes Jane Austen’s beloved characters to a new environment – the world of fast cars, race tracks, and pit crews! In this series, Will Darcy is a stock car driver and part of a renowned multi-car team run by his father, George Darcy. Other team members include Charles Bingley, Bill Collins, and former member George Wickham. Liz and Jane Bennet are long-time race car enthusiasts.

Since both books in this series are novella length and tie-in with each other so closely, I thought I’d review them together!

NOTE: This series should be read in order; what takes place in the first book is important to understanding the second book. Continue reading »

Hello friends! I’m really excited to spotlight Zoe Burton and her Pride and Prejudice and Racecars series today!  I love when an author brings the characters of Pride and Prejudice to a new setting or environment – whether it be a concert hall, dance academy, courtroom, or in this case, a race track!  It is always fun to see how some dynamics can stay the same and how some change uniquely with these new environments!  There are two books in the Pride and Prejudice and Racecars series – Darcy’s Race to Love and Georgie’s Redemption.  Zoe Burton has kindly put together an interview with her Will and Liz for me to share with you all today!  

This interview takes place right after Book 2: Georgie’s Redemption.

Meredith:  Welcome, Liz and Will!  Thank you so much for joining me today! I believe my first order of business is to congratulate you on your recent marriage and ask how married life is treating you?

Liz: Thank you, Meredith. It’s treating us very well, I think. Would you agree, Will?

Will: Definitely. Liz is the best thing outside of racing that ever happened to me.

Meredith: That is lovely to hear. How are your families?

Liz: My sister Jane is doing very well. She and Bingley are planning their wedding. Mary is enjoying her college classes. She’s begun tutoring incoming freshmen for the math department. I haven’t heard from Kitty and Lydia, but Kitty should be graduating this year, if she passes everything.

Will: My sister and father are doing well. Dad doesn’t like the restrictions he’s still under, but he doesn’t fight them much. At 70 years of age, a heart attack seriously slows a guy down. He’s finally coming to realize it. Georgie’s keeping up with her school work and keeping her nose clean. Continue reading »
