Happy Monday, my friends! I am so excited to welcome author Elizabeth Adams to Austenesque Reviews today! I’ve been a longtime fan of Elizabeth Adams’s work and I have especially enjoyed catching up on her wonderful recent releases – Green Card and On Equal Ground – these past months. Elizabeth is here to celebrate her newest release, The 26th of November, which sounds like such an entertaining read since it seems Elizabeth is reliving the day of the Netherfield Ball in a Groundhog Day-like situation! We hope you enjoy this excerpt from The 26th of November!
Elizabeth looked around the empty room and flinched when she saw her cousin standing by the fireplace. She had forgotten this happened the day after the ball. Oh, well. She would just have to suffer through his insulting proposal and refuse him once again. Then she would think of something to prevent the Netherfield party from leaving the following day.
Mr. Collins began speaking, she knew not what of but it was clearly not a proposal yet. She caught the name of his noble patroness in his rambling speech and decided she would try her newfound talent for changing the course of events on her cousin.
