Hi friends! I’m so excited to welcome author Jessie Lewis to my blog today! I’ve so loved everything I’ve read by Jessie Lewis (for proof see: here and here) and I almost was lucky enough to meet up with her when I was in England last year (don’t worry, Jessie, we will make it happen next time for sure!) Jessie is visiting today to share a special announcement, and I hope you are as excited by it as I am!!

From the Author

Thank you, Meredith, for welcoming me back to Austenesque Reviews. Many of your readers are familiar with the novel I’m talking about today — Mistaken was kindly voted one of your readers’ favourite Austenesque novels in 2017 and one of your own favourites for 2018.

I am here to let your readers know that, after a short hiatus, Mistaken is once more available as an ebook on Amazon, both to purchase and via the Kindle Unlimited programme. It’s had a bit of a make-over and has a few extended and a few new scenes, plus a new epilogue. Other than that, in essentials, it is very much what is ever was, which I hope will please those who enjoyed it and wish to read it again on KU. Continue reading »

Hi friends! I hope you are enjoying a great week! I’m so excited to share about this lovely upcoming release coming from Meryton Press today! I have several reasons I’m excited about this new release:

  1. This book is co-authored by a new-to-me author and one I’ve read and enjoyed before! 🤗
  2. This book seems to be from the point-of-view of a character I have a special affinity for… 🥰
  3. I love Meryton Press books! 📖❤️

I hope you enjoy this cover reveal of J.L. Ashton’s and Justin Rivard’s upcoming release – now available for pre-order! – The Most Interesting Man in the World

~ Book Description ~

What has gotten into Fitzwilliam Darcy lately?

Charles Bingley, a jolly fellow who relies on his great friend’s impeccable judgment in all things, is determined to find out. What could explain Darcy’s ill humour and distraction? Or his uncharacteristic blunder of speaking Greek to a horse who only understands Latin? Not to mention that shocking book accident! Certainly, it has nothing to do with Elizabeth Bennet, the sister of Bingley’s own angel, Jane. Bingley is certain of it.

What was really going on behind the scenes at Netherfield, Pemberley, and Darcy House, and just what did those men talk about over billiards and brandy? In this novella, Bingley sheds a little light on keeping company with the most interesting man in the world, and shares his own musings on puppies, his dreadful sisters, and the search for true love. Prepare to be shocked, delighted, and confused by a Charles Bingley the likes of whom you’ve never met before.

And without further ado….here is the big reveal!!! Continue reading »

Happy Friday, friends! I’m so excited to kick-off the week with a special cover reveal of Don Jacobson’s long-awaited next installment in The Bennet Wardrobe series – The Avenger: Thomas Bennet and a Father’s Lament!!! If you are new to this series, it is a series that focuses on the Bennet family, who have the ability to travel forward in time through the mystical properties of the Bennet Wardrobe! So far, this series has taken members of the Bennet family to various different time periods where they encounter not only famous historical figures, but also beloved characters from other novels! I am excited about Don’s newest release because it focuses on two characters we don’t often see in the spotlight – Mr. and Mrs. Bennet!

~ Book Description ~

(expected release date: December 25th)

Bennet looked at his wife’s swollen lips, softly bruised from several deeply loving kisses, and her flushed complexion, as alluring when gracing the countenance of a woman of four-and-forty as that of a girl of nine-and-ten. He was one of the lucky few to have fallen in love with the same woman at both ages.

Thomas Bennet, Master of Longbourn, had always counted himself amongst the few educated gentlemen of his acquaintance. But, he had to travel over 120 years into the future to discover how little he knew about the woman sharing his life.

Once again, the amazing Bennet Wardrobe proved to be the schoolmaster. Tom Bennet’s lesson? Mrs. Bennet had been formed especially for him. Yet, t’would be the good lady herself who taught him the power of the Fifth and Sixth Loves: Redemption and Forgiveness.

Fanny Bennet also would uncover deep wells of courage and inspiration as she stood by her man’s side in the bleak years after World War II. Together they would lead their descendants in pursuit of the beast who had wronged every member of the Five Families.

The Bennet Wardrobe series stands alone

The Avenger takes us on a new journey through The Bennet Wardrobe – an alternate universe rising from Don Jacobson’s vivid imagination and based upon the immortal Pride and PrejudiceThe Avenger is another important step leading to the culmination of this enchanting trip: one that has drawn us into its reality to travel side-by-side with richly sketched characters. Each book has left us wanting more.

The Bennet Wardrobe series stands alone as a unique result of originality focused on beloved characters as they move—and grow—through surprising plotlines.
