    I actually read these out of order because the Emma book showed up in myfeed first I don t know which one I likeThis one is longer and Ransom is definitelyof a cranky, Alpha male It was definitely a Pride and Prejudice remake, but not so much that it was boring You could see all the characters even her sisters and mom but I think she combined the bad guys into one Unless I missed something Anyway, the Civil War details were really interesting and I kept thinking may I actually read these out of order because the Emma book showed up in myfeed first I don t know which one I likeThis one is longer and Ransom is definitelyof a cranky, Alpha male It was definitely a Pride and Prejudice remake, but not so much that it was boring You could see all the characters even her sisters and mom but I think she combined the bad guys into one Unless I missed something Anyway, the Civil War details were really interesting and I kept thinking maybe the author was making it up, so I googled a few facts and she was right on So, there s a lot of research in here, and FUNNY, too Sometimes I laughed out loud and my husband would roll his eyes Annoyed at me anyway, no sex, no swearing Somebody said there was a swear word but I must have missed it There was, like, two kisses and a proposal so that was definitely pretty tame for a romance book I like a littleheat, but this was still a very good book and definitely Christian Would make a great movie

    To start, this book isn t really a retelling of Pride and Prejudice, which is fine, but if you re expecting a retelling, just be aware it isn t The book isinspired by Pride and Prejudice, meaning it has similarities in characters and scenes.Let me start with what I liked I liked the writing save one exception, see the final note The book was well written and flowed well I didn t really feel like the conversations were forced or full of cliches I didn t notice any major grammar o To start, this book isn t really a retelling of Pride and Prejudice, which is fine, but if you re expecting a retelling, just be aware it isn t The book isinspired by Pride and Prejudice, meaning it has similarities in characters and scenes.Let me start with what I liked I liked the writing save one exception, see the final note The book was well written and flowed well I didn t really feel like the conversations were forced or full of cliches I didn t notice any major grammar or formatting errors, in the ebook.Now to the things I didn t like The characters aren t fully fleshed out, I didn t really understand their motivations or actions Also, most of the secondary characters were stock characters meaning they had no characterization and often only appeared for a moment as a convenient plot device and then were gone Example A random cousin showing up with a baby so the heroine could have a conversation with the hero Additionally, I wasn t too fond of the plot, it seemed a little too contrived The hero and heroine didn t really encounter each other in circumstances which would seem normal to me, so that was a bit of a strain on believability On the whole, the book felt about three stars to me, until a particular scene occurred The heroine calls out an older, respected lady as a liar, at the lady s own fundraiser, in front of everyone, during her speech Now, not only is this completely inappropriate in any circumstances let the lady finish her speech and talk to her privately, have some respect The heroine based her facts for calling the lady out on an article she remembered reading once in a newspaper Really You publicly embarrass and insult someone based on an article that you remember reading What if your memory is bad What if the newspaper was wrong What if you misunderstood To top this all off, the heroine spent the majority of the book complaining about how someone gave her an insulting and uncalled for review in a national magazine Yeah, that means she did the same thing to someone else that she had spent the book complaining about sigh To make matters worse, if possible, after causing that scene, it s never really mentioned in the book, again The heroine insulted a respected lady of the community at her own party, in front of all of these influential people and we never know the aftermath Was the heroine right Was it just a mistake Was the lady really trying to con people out of money Did the heroine s reputation suffer Nothing That pushed the book down to two stars from me.Oh, final note, the Christian heroine utters a swear word in the middle of the book and an important plot device is of an adult nature, so just be aware.Maybe you will enjoy this book, but it just wasn t for me

    While the premise was fun, the story was not written well The was a was of feminist mumbo jumbo too that totally wasn t needed The redemption aspect went way to quickly There were also a lot of grammatical errors.

    I was introduced to this author on the Austenesque Reviews blog Reading the good comments there made me go toto read the reviews and then the sample I usually read most, if not all, reviews before making a decision but in noting that there are 376 reviews I only read those of longer lengths I was provided a free copy of this book by the author with no strings attached.I opened this book up on a Sunday afternoon and could not put it down despite missing a USA soccer game so finished I was introduced to this author on the Austenesque Reviews blog Reading the good comments there made me go toto read the reviews and then the sample I usually read most, if not all, reviews before making a decision but in noting that there are 376 reviews I only read those of longer lengths I was provided a free copy of this book by the author with no strings attached.I opened this book up on a Sunday afternoon and could not put it down despite missing a USA soccer game so finished reading at 12 20 AM on a Monday morning I enjoyed the quotes at the beginning of each chapter and found myself pausing to think, OK that quote is from which scene As others have said this is very loosely framed after Jane Austen s PP with characters that are recognizable to her fans It stands alone but I would hope readers would also read JA s PP, a classic for all ages.As a Christian I was pleased to find my faith reflected in these pages but NOT in a preachy style I also found the romance very enticing without going into the bedroom Elizabeth and Darcy are my favorite characters from fiction so I look for JAFF which features them.I will not go over the story line as so many have done a very good job with that in the previous 36 pages of reviews I did find this to be a page turner and found that it was not predictable, so I did not find myself skimming anything as I do at times in other books My book was free from errors With paperbacks I keep a pencil on hand to make corrections and made none therein.I truly enjoyed the various relationships Shelby had her aunt, her roommate, friends, co workers, family, even her younger sisters I particularly liked the humorous restaurant scene with Tasha.spinach and cranberries, indeed The You Tube video incident was unique in this story but sadly reflecting many headlines in recent years of corrupt professionals who have young students persons in their power, i.e., Sandusky scandal for Penn State.My paperback does include the recipes which I look forward to trying out plus the Reading Discussion Guide is a very nice addition I am thinking about sending this book to one of my Southern cousins in Georgia but will have to re read it at least once, maybe twice, first

    A cute and simple modern day take of Pride and Prejudice I loved the southern touches, with history woven into the storyline The main character was mature, strong, smart, funny, and I love how she talked to God throughout the book It made it realistic and relatable Of course I always loved Lizzie Bennet anyway so I am not surprised I liked this character Thank heavens the main male character who was supposed to represent Mr Darcywas way better than Mr Darcy I am one of those people w A cute and simple modern day take of Pride and Prejudice I loved the southern touches, with history woven into the storyline The main character was mature, strong, smart, funny, and I love how she talked to God throughout the book It made it realistic and relatable Of course I always loved Lizzie Bennet anyway so I am not surprised I liked this character Thank heavens the main male character who was supposed to represent Mr Darcywas way better than Mr Darcy I am one of those people who really can not see anything desirable in the original character But he was rather lovely in this book and muchlikable and nice Overall it didn t mimic Pride and Prejudice too much, which was okay with me It had the same sort of storyline but a lot of differences which I like in a modern remake Some people might not though if you like exact re telling I did find a few grammar mistakes but it didn t bother me to muchand I m a grammar nazi Sometimes kindle versions aren t the best quality, so I understand that.Clean book No sex No cursing A little bit of crude humor but nothing you wouldn t hear if you have kids or brothers around Overall enjoyable, fun, and I give it 4 stars

    I can t believe how much I loved this book This is hands down the best modern adaptation of Pride and Prejudice I ve read, and I read a LOT of Austen adaptations both Regency and modern This was the first time the heroine was smart enough to be a worthy successor to Elizabeth Bennet The parallels were not overdrawn or trite, and the story would have been compelling even if it did not remind me of one of my favorite books I love the way that faith played into the story not forced at all, I can t believe how much I loved this book This is hands down the best modern adaptation of Pride and Prejudice I ve read, and I read a LOT of Austen adaptations both Regency and modern This was the first time the heroine was smart enough to be a worthy successor to Elizabeth Bennet The parallels were not overdrawn or trite, and the story would have been compelling even if it did not remind me of one of my favorite books I love the way that faith played into the story not forced at all, and feeling very natural and in sync with the characters The group of people who love Shelby and Ransom in the book felt genuine and dynamic as well, even though they did not get a lot of page time typical for the romance genre, of course not a complaint I loved Rebecca She made me thinkhighly of Jane Bennet The Wickham type character was suitably evil Really, the only distracting bit of reading was a multitude of typos, but I would read twice as many happily just to hear the story I am very much looking forward to the next books in the series Way to go, Ms Hathaway

    Having previously read and enjoyed another book in this series, Persuasion, Captain Wentworth, and Cracklin Cornbread, I was eager to read this, the one that started it all As I expected, I seriously enjoyed it Hathaway has a way of taking Austen s works and modernizing them without losing any of Austen s themes or deeper meaning There are still discussions of the social classes, women s roles, and race I like that Hathaway doesn t allow her characters to shy away from these issues She make Having previously read and enjoyed another book in this series, Persuasion, Captain Wentworth, and Cracklin Cornbread, I was eager to read this, the one that started it all As I expected, I seriously enjoyed it Hathaway has a way of taking Austen s works and modernizing them without losing any of Austen s themes or deeper meaning There are still discussions of the social classes, women s roles, and race I like that Hathaway doesn t allow her characters to shy away from these issues She makes sure her work has substance and takes a stand I highly approve I m extremely eager to complete the rest of this series

    I downloaded this book for free onI m totally one to judge a book by its cover, and wasn t impressed However the story line seemed interesting so I took a risk and hit purchase Boy am I glad I did Loved the characters, the scenes and The fact that it WASN T yet another spin on Jane Austen s Pride and Prejudice Sure there were a some Austenesc scenes, but it wasn t so overwhelming that you felt you were reading Pride and Prejudice again.
