The Highbury Murders de Victoria Grossack

Présentation de l'éditeur : The death of Mrs. Bates, a very old lady whose hearing had long since gone and who had spent her last few months either in her bedroom or sitting in her chair in the parlor, would have gone unremarked in London, where people spent their time discussing fashion, nobility, and the latest offering at the theatre. In Bath her decease might have been mentioned as a piece of dull news, before the residents and visitors resumed discussing who had been seen at the Pump Room during the day or who was giving a whist party that night.

Everyone loves Emmalee's advice--everyone, that is, except her annoying neighbor Chase Anderson, who has taken it upon himself to "fix" her.

This modern version of Jane Austen’s Emma is the hilarious journey of a girl who believes she knows all about love. But when it comes to recognizing the perfect guy for her, Emmalee is absolutely clueless.

Une nouvelle ré-écriture chick lit de Jenni James et je suis toujours fan ! Elle reprend parfaitement le personnage d'Emma (en tous les cas, tel que je le vois) et le roman réussit sans problème sa transposition "chick-lit…
