Happy Monday, readers! Today, Austenesque Reviews is paid a visit from author, Sue Barr, who is celebrating her newly published Pride and Prejudice sequel about Kitty Bennet, titled – Catherine, Pride & Prejudice Continued… Book Two! During Sue’s first visit last year she had her characters play The Newlywed Game and it was so fun! Sue is back with another round of The Newlywed Game, but this time the contestants are not Caroline and Nathan! 

Good morning, Meredith, and thank you for hosting this post for my latest release, Catherine, Pride & Prejudice Continued… Book Two. Today I am back to share a post that I hope gives your readers some more laughs and allows them to get to know Catherine and her new husband, George, in another light.

I have invited Emma Woodhouse to be our host again for our Newlywed Game, 1812-style. Let’s give a warm welcome to Emma…

Good morning ladies and gentlemen, this is Emma Woodhouse, and I am back again at the Theatre-Royal, Covent Garden to play another round of The Newlywed Game.
