There are a lot of things I’m excited about with today’s author feature –
- It is a brand new author, Belén Paccagnella
- She is from Argentina
- Her debut book is a modern-day Pride and Prejudice with an equestrian theme
- And lastly, it is being published by Meryton Press!!
Today Belén is sharing a lovely vignette from her story, Obstacles. We hope you enjoy!
Thank you, Meredith, for hosting me during the tour for my book, Obstacles. This scene is titled, Home for the Weekend, which is a scene inspired by a picture that somehow up ended in Darcy’s phone. I hope your readers have fun reading it!
“Margaret!” Darcy called on entering the house. “I’m home!”
“Hi, Will!” It was Georgiana who came to greet him. “She’s out on an errand. I thought you were at Rosings.”
“Richard travelled to London so I preferred to come home for the weekend.” He dropped his bag on the floor and gave his little sister a tight hug. “And I thought you’d be in Manchester.”
“The girls are coming over tonight, and we’re going to the pub. They’ll stay for the weekend.”
“Bridget and Roxanne, you know them.”
“Yes, I do,” he said with a smirk. “One of them passed out on my bed on your eighteenth birthday.”
“Yeah, Bridget. “ Georgiana smiled with fondness at the memory. “That was a great party.”
Darcy’s memories of that time weren’t as merry. The party spiralled out of control when the ‘girls’ smuggled tons of liquor into the house, and Pemberley was raided by an army of sloshed youths. That had been the start of the one of the worst weeks of his life. The following day, after cleaning up the mess, he drove to Devonshire and found Miss D nearly dead in her stall.
