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!

Hi readers!  I am so happy to welcome back Alexa Adams to Austenesque Reviews today!  Alexa is not only one of my favorite Austenesque authors but one of my first blog friends! 🙂 Alexa has created some wonderful Austenesque stories (my personal favorite is The Madness of Mr. Darcy) and I’m really excited about her newest release, Darcy in Wonderland!  Alexa is sharing a great post about some of her characters in this clever Pride and Prejudice sequel, we hope you enjoy!

Thanks so much for hosting me today, Meredith! It’s always a pleasure to visit your blog – one of the very first JAFF blogs I discovered way back in the day.

My newest book, Darcy in Wonderland, is a pure mashup. Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland is encapsulated within a traditional Pride and Prejudice sequel, set many years after the Darcys married, sometime in the Victorian Era.

Where did July go?!?  I swear it lasted only 4 seconds!  Or at least, it felt that way.  We had a very eventful month here in the Bingley house!

For the first two weeks of the month we had a lovely family member from Colombia stay with us.  Jairo is married to one of Mr. Bingley’s cousins and wanted to spend some of his vacation days with us, and we were very happy to have him as our guest.  We enjoyed his company and felt like we all grew closer together during his visit! <3

We had a blast taking to Jairo to all our favorite restaurants, to the beach, and sharing with him the fun things we like to do around our town. Continue reading »
