If you are a fan of Jane Austen, especially her book Pride and Prejudice, you will want to pick up Keeping the Castle. Our seventeen year-old heroine, Althea, has the burden of supporting her mother, younger brother, and two dead weight stepsisters. The family home, Crawley Castle, is a money pit to say the least, so Althea's only hope is to marry a rich man. Suitors are hard to come by when you live in a distant small town, but soon handsome Lord Boring comes to to stay at his relatives' home nearby. He also brings a rather annoying friend, Mr. Fredericks, who sets Althea's temper on fire. Althea sets her sights on becoming Lady Boring, but her stepsister seems to have the same goal.
Will Althea marry Lord Boring and save crumbling Crawley Castle? Will another rich suitor come her way that she could even *gasp* love? Will those stepsisters ever help out around the house? Will Mr. Fredericks ever stop being so rude? Tune in to the delightful Keeping the Castle and get lost in this fun historical romance.
