Publisher's Summary

Beloved authors Julia Quinn, Elizabeth Boyle, Laura Lee Guhrke, and Stefanie Sloane deliver the stories of four friends from Madame Rochambeaux's Gentle School for Girls who find an old sixpence in their bedchamber and decide that it will be the lucky coin for each of their weddings…

"Something Old"
Julia Quinn’s prologue introduces her heroine Beatrice Heywood and the premise for Four Weddings and a Sixpence.

"Something New"
In Stefanie Sloane's unforgettable story, an ever-vigilant guardian decrees that Anne Brabourne must marry by her twenty-first birthday. But love finds her in the most unexpected of ways.

"Something Borrowed"
Elizabeth Boyle tells the tale of Cordelia Padley, who has invented a betrothed to keep her family from pestering her to wed. Now she'll need to borrow one to convince them she's found her true love.

"Something Blue"
In Laura Lee Guhrke's story, unlucky Lady Elinor Daventry has her sixpence stolen from her and must convince the rake who pilfered the coin to return it in time for her own wedding.

"... and a Sixpence in Her Shoe"
Julia Quinn finishes with the story of Beatrice Heywood, who never believed that the sixpence was anything but a tarnished old coin—until it led all of her friends to true love. But her faith in the coin is tested when it keeps sending her to the wrong man!

    Story
    "Delightful"
    What did you love best about Four Weddings and a Sixpence?

    Delightful quick interwoven stories that led to 11 hours of pleasure.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Four Weddings and a Sixpence?

    Most memorable was none of the stories suffered through being stretched to a full length book by use of dumb misunderstandings. The stories just marched on, most pleasantly.


    Which character – as performed by Mary Jane Wells – was your favorite?

    Love Mary Jane Wells, both her female voices, her male voices most especially and even her elderly voices. She's my favorite


    Any additional comments?

    I'll be listening to this one again. And checking out the books of the books of those authors new to me.

    Story
    "The Perfect Valentine's Romance Book"

    This was a fun, light book of romantic tales. As I was reading, I thought this would be the perfect romance to curl up with around Valentine's Day. All short, sweet HEAs.

    My favorite is always Julia Quinn and she's easy to pick out even if the authors hadn't been given. -She begins the book with "Something Old" describing the schoolgirls and sets up the story, describing their backgrounds and relationships -it's well done. The 5th book wraps up with Julia Quinn's "And a Sixpence in her shoe." This was my favorite story -Bea and Frederick are interesting, well developed, unique characters and their story flowed well. She makes them a believable couple in a short period of time. (and I love Bea -practical, forthright with a unique perspective on Frederick who can't help but fall in love with her.)

    The second book, "Something New" by S. Sloane was a condensed version of "The Duke and I." While the story was cute, I was disappointed that it wasn't more original.

    The third book, "Something Borrowed" by Elizabeth Boyle was a good, original story of Cordelia who has sworn off marriage due to her parents' volatile marriage, but told her aunts she is betrothed in order to get them to leave her alone. Unfortunately, she's given a deadline and she shows up at her childhood friend, Kipp's, house. Cordelia has lived the life Kipp wanted -traveling, seeing exotic places while he's been stuck at home as his father's heir. Cordelia brings joy back into his life opening possibilities while he shows her the joys of stability and the excitement to be had in every day life. It was well done.

    "Something Blue" by Laura Guhrke and the fourth book in the series, was another good story though a little more frustrating to me. Elinor's ex-fiance, Lawrence, steals the coin from her to mess up her plans to marry a man that can help her father win against malicious lies to prove him guilty of murder. Lawrence is dead set on prosecuting her father, but without hard evidence, he's finding it difficult. Lawrence won't tell her what evidence he has or needs to convict her father because he knows she'll tell her father and give him a chance to ruin the case. She tells him over and over to show her proof, but he's upset because she believes her father rather than him? I thought that was a dumb premise. Her father has taken care of her and loved her -of course she believes him over her friend/ fiance if he won't /can't give her proof. The best part of the story are all of the mishaps that happen to her because she doesn't have the "lucky" coin.

    All of the stories were good though my favorite was Julia's. I think the sex scenes could have been left out -I'm not against sex scenes, but they all seemed forced to me when the characters had such a short time to develop their characters and romances for us. I liked that many of the characters romances had childhood histories -long time friendships with their romantic interests or a previous courtship to make the short stories more plausible.

    All-in-all, a fun listen!
