    Thank you so much for putting this together! I currently have Murder at Mansfield Park from the library and hoping to read it this week.


    Have you tried another P&P variation by Emma Hox? Longbourn’s Unexpected Matchmaker came out at the beginning of the summer. I would love to hear what you thought of this one!
    Thanks again for the wonderful lists. Now I have even MORE on my TBR list!


    I have not read Emma Hox’s variation, yet. Variations are my favorite and this one is on my list to check out.


    Your blog is an amazing resource — so much work and effort! So many tempting titles…..thank you!


    Golly! And I thought I was the first to think of writing an Austen tie-in. LOL Thanks, Meredith. This is a great resource.


    He he he! So happy to have finally made it into one of your comprehensive guides! Do you know anything about A World of Expectations? I’ve had these books in my shopping cart for a while now, but keep on deferring purchase in favor of other books I’m more anxious to read.


    LOL, Alexa! All I know about A World of Expectations is from amazon, it seems like it is a very different variation of P&P. I look forward to hearing your thoughts, if you do read it!


    Thanks for putting up this list of P&P inspired novels. Going to go through all the lists and see what books I like and add them to my wishlist.


    The Brothers by Jane Austen and Another Lady
    by Helen Baker
    Miss Austen wrote ten chapters of a novel she called The Brothers before illness stilled her pen. Now, her entire draft has been incorporated into the complete story.
    The Watsons by Jane Austen and Another Lady
    Miss Austen, at the height of her powers, wrote eighteen thousand words of a delightful story and then abandoned her attempt. Now, every word has been incorporated into a complete novel which, it is to be hoped, should give pleasure to many.
    by Helen Baker (A continuation of ‘Mansfield Park’)
    Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park chronicles the mutual attachment of Mary Crawford and Edmund Bertram until he abandons his love, claiming that she has forfeited even his respect. Can our flawed heroine, with her beauty, her charm and her twenty thousand pounds ever find a worthy gentleman who will appreciate her for those very qualities that Edmund deplored?
    The Book Of Ruth
    by Helen Baker (A continuation of ‘Pride and Prejudice’)

    Longbourn House in Hertfordshire remains the home of the Bennet family but, five years after the conclusion of Pride and Prejudice, find Kitty and Mary still unwed and discontent. Then Mary’s deep reading leads her to a plan. Her guide in husband-hunting is no less than the Biblical Book of Ruth..

    Precipitation A Continuation of Miss Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice
    by Helen Baker
    Are you, dear Jane Austen enthusiast, as well acquainted with Miss Caroline Bingley as you ever wish to be? Do you deplore her duplicity from which the Bennet family suffered for so long? In reality, you will discover that she struggled again difficulties which make Lizzie Bennet’s vulgar relations appear trivial.
    Note – this book is completely compatible with the other Helen Baker continuation of Pride and Prejudice called The Book of Ruth.
    by Helen Baker (A continuation of ‘Persuasion’)
    Miss Austen finished Persuasion with an enigma. Was the deceitful widow Mrs Clay so lost to all honour, decency and – yes – self-interest as to live installed in town under the capricious protection of that equal dissembler Mr Elliot? Or was the lady, as Lady Russell proclaimed her, a very dangerous companion?
    Now a Jane Austen First!
    Miss Jane Austen,penned ‘Lady Susan’ at nineteen. It was never submitted for publication. Yet twenty-three thousand words sparkle. As the lady presented her novel in the form of letters, and reflects the immorality of a debauched era, it might not find favour with the modern reader. So, the present authoress has dared to present the story as one of Miss Austen’s mature works. To her knowledge, no one else has attempted such a scholarly feat.
    Miss Jane Austen’s Lady Susan – Revived
    by Helen Baker
    Lady Susan is the most beautiful, beguiling schemer in Regency England. She must subjugate every gentleman who crosses her path, conducting multiple flirtations and extracting herself deviously from all the complications. When her husband dies, leaving her destitute with a pretty, innocent daughter on her hands, she uses all her wiles to find them both convenient husbands. Convenient to herself, that is.
    Maria – Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey Continued
    by Helen Baker
    The machinations of the Thorpe family dominate Northanger Abbey. Read now how John Thorpe’s extravagance brought his family to the brink of ruin and enabled Captain Tilney to master that proud beauty Isabella Thorpe. Nor would he stop there when she had two lovely sisters, one barely sixteen.
    Written and published between 2006 and 2011, most are available on as well as


    lovely to see all the #Austenesque Extravaganza authors and their books now that we’ve met via the Sociable Sunday twitter parties! seems a closer connxn and desire to find their reads “”) my wishlist is grooowwwinng…!


    Meredith – I guess I’ll have to wait for your 2011 list to see “The Darcys of Pemberley” mentioned. Must be a big job compiling these lists. In the meantime, I’d love to be added to your Austenesque author sites 🙂
