Review Tour: Colonel Brandon's Widow and Willoughby by Marianna Green

Congratulations to tour winner Christy M. and to host winners Enchanting Reviews and Locks, Hooks, and Books. 

Goddess Fish Promotions is organizing a Virtual REVIEW ONLY Tour for Colonel Brandon's Widow and Willoughby by Marianna Green, a 100 pages romance historical Jane Austen sequel available now. The tour will run every Wednesday for 4 weeks starting on April 17, and the book is available in PDF, mobi and ePub formats.

Marianna Green will be awarding a $20 Amazon or Barnes and Noble GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour, and a $15 Amazon or Barnes and Noble GC to a randomly drawn host. Because this is a review tour, GFP will award a $5 Amazon GC to a randomly drawn host.
Mrs. Brandon, the former Marianne Dashwood, is now a widow, and not yet twenty-five. Her former admirer Willoughby is as unhappily married as ever, and the thought that she is free to marry again drives him to distraction. He has continued in his dissolute lifestyle, which Marianne abhors, while his wife Sophia's life has been poisoned by jealousy of Marianne. Marianne urges him that the only possibility of happiness for Willoughby and his wife is for him to give up his empty pursuit of pleasure - but now the Colonel is gone, Marianne finds that she can no longer push aside thoughts of Willoughby easily herself; she must find some way of occupying her own empty hours. Willoughby retains his rascally charm, which an older and wiser Marianne is determined to resist; Elinor and Edward are as astute as ever, while Sir John and Lady Middleton are as foolish. Mrs. Jennings remains determined to marry off all her associates as before, while Sophia Willoughby is even more sour as the wife of the man she wanted, and Willoughby's friends are suitably cynical rakes.

This sequel to Jane Austen's 'Sense and Sensibility' strives to emulate some of the light ironic touch of the inimitable style of Jane Austen; it is both funny and sad, and is told as dark comedy.
