Jane Sighting - Candlelight Christmas by Susan Wiggs

Candlelight Christmas is the 10th book in Susan Wiggs' Lakeshore Chronicles.  This is one of my favorite series so I was excited to see a Jane Austen P&P reference in the book.
"Yet another thing we have in common - quirky parents.  Mine are English professors. My sisters and I are named after literary figures.  I guess that makes them quirky by predictable."
"Darcy, I can't recall a Darcy from college English."
"Hint-it's a surname."
He gave a short laugh. "As in Fitzwilliam Darcy? You're named after Mr. Darcy?"
"It gets worse. My sisters are Mary, Kitty, Lydia and Lizzie. My full name is Darcy Jane." ...
"Don't tell me Lydia is married to a reverend..."  (pg 115).
