Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Source: Review Copy from Author

TYPE OF AUSTENESQUE NOVEL: Pride and Prejudice Sequel, Minor Character

TIME FRAME: Takes place four years after Particular Intentions, Georgiana is 20 years of age

SERIES: Book 2 of 2 in the Particular Intentions Series (while stand alone, I would recommend reading Particular Intentions first to enhance enjoyment and understanding)

SYNOPSIS: It has been five years since Ramsgate and Georgiana Darcy has still not made her debut. Because of what transpired with Wickham (which is sadly much worse than what happens in P&P), Georgiana has decided to eschew London society and has determined that she will not marry. Ever. But in order to spend the holidays with her brother’s family, Georgiana has decided to return to London after all this time. Georgiana’s time in London begins pleasant enough, but she soon encounters some people from her past – a childhood playmate whom she always found insufferable and a person guilty of causing her great harm and suffering… Will Georgiana overcome her past? Will her secrets cause her ruin? Continue reading »

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Source: Review Copy from Author

While out for a walk, Mr. Darcy and his youngest daughter Alice espy a white rabbit crossing their path. Having seen this particular white rabbit (with a pocket watch and waistcoat) before, Alice runs after Mr. Rabbit and follows him down a rather large rabbit hole. What could Mr. Darcy – master of Pemberley, devoted husband, and father of six – do but follow his daughter and ensure her safety?!? Down the rabbit hole they go and what befalls them is a succession of nonsensical and inexplicable events like Fitzwilliam Darcy has never seen. And despite these curious characters and fantastical events, all Mr. Darcy wants to do is find his way home to Pemberley. Sounds like he needs a pair of ruby slippers…oops! Wrong story!

Hello readers!  We are very excited to welcome a new author, Jessie Lewis, to Austenesque Reviews today! As you might have seen and heard, Jessie is celebrating her debut release with Meryton Press, entitled Mistaken!  (Which sounds like such a unique and fun story with some interesting twists!)  I cannot wait to read Mistaken, especially after reading this lovely vignette Jessie is sharing with us today!  

Thank you so much, Meredith, for inviting me to end my blog tour here at Austenesque Reviews. For this last post, I’ve saved one of my very favourite deleted scenes to share with your readers—one that didn’t quite make the final edit but which is still very close to my heart.

It might be considered somewhat of a spoiler, since it features Darcy and Elizabeth together, but I don’t mind admitting that I’m a complete D&E-aholic and couldn’t have written a story without their HEA if I’d tried! In any case, I wanted to end the blog tour with a promise of happiness for our favourite couple.

Thank you, everyone, for stopping by. Please feel free to ask me any questions in the comments, or you can contact me via my social media links or blog page (links below). I’d love to hear from you!
