**Note: This book is part of the "Perfect" series, but it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel.** The course of true love doesn’t always run smooth -- not even for millionaire bachelors… Everyone thought Beth Ann Bennet and Dr. Will Darcy had an unexpected romance in Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Match (Perfect #1). Now, Beth’s best friend, Jane Henderson, and Will’s first cousin, Bingley McNamara, begin their own unlikely love story in Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Bet (Perfect #2), which starts at the Bennet/Darcy wedding when the two of them find themselves in the roles of maid of honor and best man for the newlyweds. Jane is an interning school psychologist and a woman who wears an angelic mask in public, but she’s not as sweet tempered as she’d like everyone to believe. Turns out, she may have just crossed paths with the one person who’ll unnerve her enough to get her to reveal her true self. As for Bingley, he’s a wealthy, flirtatious, compulsively social guru of finance, who likes to wager on stocks and, let’s face it, on just about anything that strikes his fancy. But this dedicated ladies’ man may have finally met the woman who’ll challenge his bachelor ways! Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Bet…where life’s biggest gamble is the game of love.

Un insieme di pensieri e fantasie che esplodono dentro fino a trasformarsi in parole, gocce d’inchiostro a sporcare pagine di vita in cui rileggersi, ritrovarsi e riconoscersi, nella paura di disperdersi nel vuoto, nella continua ricerca di se stessi, negata dagli obblighi dei giorni. Uno sfogo dell’anima quando butta via la maschera davanti allo specchio di se… 12 storie in una storia che si racconta da sé…

: 'I have starved in some of the most beautiful places in the world ...' The Irish Times food writer Theodora FitzGibbon's bohemian appetite for love, pleasure, good food and adventure took her all over the globe until she died, in Dublin, in 1991. Her two-volume autobiography reveals a life fully lived: the names she used before settling on 'Theodora'; the cookery ons given to her by the former Queen Natalie of Serbia; the 1920s childhood spent on food-chomping travels with her rakish naval officer father in Europe, the Middle East and India. Paris in the 1930s was home to Theodora's struggles to maintain an independent life as a young actress, where she began an affair with photographer Peter Rose Pulham and kept company with Balthus, Cocteau, Dali and Picasso. She escaped wartime Paris to live in London during the Blitz and was friendly with Dylan and Caitlin Thomas, Augustus John, Francis Bacon, Shane Leslie and Soviet spy Donald Maclean.
She adopted Gwladys the penguin and Mouche the poodle.
She married Irish-American writer Constantine FitzGibbon in 1944 and divorced him fifteen famously stormy years later. In 1960 she married George Morrison, the film maker and archivist, and they lived together in Dalkey in the house with the 'sea at the bottom of the garden'. Be enthralled by the fascinating story behind the woman who broadened the culinary horizons of many people in Ireland and beyond. In this highly entertaining memoir, discover the sights, sounds and tastes of Theodora FitzGibbon - food writer, adventurer and thoroughly modern woman. 'Theodora FitzGibbon was the most extraordinary woman. If you read her autobiography you realise how many lives she led. And in fact how many people she was all rolled into one.' Maeve Binchy
