Happy Friday, friends! I am so excited to start my weekend with a wonderful visit from author, Nicole Clarkston! As you might have seen (and heard), Nicole has just released her a much anticipated Pride and Prejudice variation titled -Nefarious. This story has a very interesting premise as Mr. Darcy has previously married and now wants to avoid anyone who reminds him of his first wife… Nicole is here today to share a scene from Nefarious that she rewrote from Elizabeth Bennet’s point-of-view! We hope you enjoy!

This vignette is a snapshot of the Netherfield Ball from Elizabeth’s perspective. The book contains this very same scene in Chapter Ten, but in the book, we only see Darcy’s point of view. I thought it would be fun to hear Elizabeth’s thoughts. Enjoy!

Hi dear friends!

I hope your June is off to a great start! I think I’m feeling very relieved for May to be over…it ended up being a little too stressful for work for me with recitals, hiring people, summer transition, etc. I’m hoping June will be much better! 🤞🏼

Amongst all the work…and stress 😩 we were able to enjoy some bits of fun.

My brother and I enjoyed a ‘sibling hike’ in glorious 80 degree weather. 🥵😉

We did an impressive 7 miles worth of hiking! (impressive for us!)😉 Continue reading »

Our Brinshore Friends Journey to Bath!

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Source: Review Copy from Author

(Note: Potential readers should be made aware that this novel is a sequel to Brinshore, which is a sequel to Emma and Elizabeth, and while it is standalone, more pleasure may be derived from reading all novels in their intended order.)

For those that may be unfamiliar with Ann Mychal and her series – The Watson Trilogy – they are a set of books that take inspiration from Jane Austen’s finished and unfinished works: Emma and Elizabeth (Book 1) is a captivating and compelling development of Jane Austen’s abandoned manuscript – The Watsons. Brinshore (Book 2) continues with the next generation and their adventures in the seaside resorts of Brinshore and Sanditon.

In Laura Place (Book 3) readers are taken back to Bath a couple years after Sir Walter Persuasion concludes. Lady Dalrymple and her daughter Miss Carteret are still making Bath their home in fashionable Laura Place and just happen to be neighbors to the newly arrived Allershams and Mrs. Beresford (Lady Allersham’s aunt). The two titled families are thrown together often and develop a relationship with each other. Lady Allersham – who has attempted and blundered terribly with her matchmaking efforts before – is very intrigued by Miss Carteret. She thinks Miss Carteret might be hiding a secret and is torn between wanting to discover what it is and wanting to find Miss Carteret a worthy suitor to marry… Continue reading »
