I love to read, and writing helpful reviews has become a hobby of mine these past few years. My favorite type of books are Austenesque novels and Historical Christian Romances. I run my own music studio and give private piano lessons. I love music and working with children! My husband, Pedro, is my Mr. Bingley and we have been happily married for seven years now!

A VERY big thank you to Sophie Turner for making a special visit to Austenesque Reviews.  It was so great to learn more about her thoughts about Mr. Darcy and read some excerpts from her new release, Mistress.  And I further extend my thanks to Sophie for allowing me the immense pleasure of reading and reviewing Mistress on my blog!  If you missed by review, you can check it out HERE (spoiler alert:  I loved it!)

Also, thank you to Sophie for her generosity in sponsoring a generous giveaway with both posts!

Thank you to all of you who stopped by to read Sophie’s post and my review and shared your thoughts.  It was especially awesome of all of you who commented but didn’t want to be entered in the giveaway because you already won a copy of Sophie’s book during her blog tour! Continue reading »
