In the second installment of her contemporary Austen-inspired series Abigail Reynolds brings readers back to the charming seaside village of Woods Hole, Massachusetts and paints a love story full of passion and pathos. A story about second chances, finding happiness, and healing. In Morning Light readers are introduced to Annie Wright, a widowed young woman with a sad and painful past, and Jeremy Matthiesen, a man who, after ten years of forced separation, is back again in Annie’s life and trying to tear down the barriers that surround her heart.

Since Annie is neighbors with Cassie and Calder (the hero and The Man Who Loved Pride and Prejudice (2)heroine from Pemberley By the Sea/The Man Who Loved Pride and Prejudice) readers can expect to see a lot of them and the Westing clan in this novel. I enjoyed “staying in touch” with Cassie and Calder as well as witnessing the new drama and developments in their lives. I found that it worked well to have a second prominent story-line in this novel and that Abigail Reynolds divided her time between the two couples quite successfully and skillfully.

Rating: 4.5 out 5 stars

The Man Who Loved Pride and Prejudice was originally published as Pemberley by the Sea (a more fitting and becoming title, in my humble opinion) in 2008. This is a reissue of that same book in a Mass Market Paperback Edition but with a different title, no changes were made to story. Its now being available at a lower price and in a smaller size makes it perfect if you are looking for a book to take with you on the beach or to the pool this summer!

If you have read any of Abigail Reynold’s Pemberley Variations you are aware that she is a very talented and creative author that has a great understanding and love for Pride and Prejudice and Jane Austen. Her variations display her wonderful story-telling skills and her penchant for implementing a lot of angst and emotional development in her plots. If you haven’t read a novel by Abigail Reynolds I would advise being prepared for romantic love-scenes between the characters and recommend this book for mature eyes only. Continue reading »
