Hi friends! I know it is a little late in the month to be sharing the agenda, but that’s because I was too busy starting the month with two lovely author visits – did you see them?

I hope you all had a lovely October! Did you do anything fun?

I’m happy to say that I feel like I kept up with blogging and reading better in October!! I think it helps that we are starting to feel more fall weather. 🍂 I’m staying in more, instead of spending the day at the beach. 😉 📚 📚 📚

Happy Friday, everyone! I am super excited to welcome back author Leslie Diamond to Austenesque Reviews today!! As you may have seen Leslie has a new book that just came out – Unwrapping Mr. Darcy, and it looks like a wonderful book to enjoy this upcoming holiday season!! It’s not too soon to start reading Christmas books and listening to Christmas music, is it? 🎄😃🎄😃 I’m especially excited about this story – not only because it is by Leslie Diamond and is a modern Christmas Pride and Prejudice story, but also because there seems to be some secret gift giving, which I think is so much fun (also there is a cat featured on the cover and I hear Lizzy is fond of cats!)!! I hope you enjoy Leslie’s post as she shares more about Unwrapping Mr. Darcy!

Thanks so much, Meredith, for having me today! Unwrapping Mr. Darcy is finally released and I hope everyone is enjoying reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. I love fluff and so often I write stories where an outside force keeps ODC apart, and I really wanted to write something where they got more in their own way—like in Pride and Prejudice. This book started out as a quick 4-part short story that I expanded into a full-length book. I had to change a few things when expanding it but that was part of the challenge. If you haven’t read it, I hope you’ll give it a try this holiday season 🙂

Just for fun, I interviewed Charlotte, Elizabeth’s childhood friend and current executive assistant and she gave us the scoop on Elizabeth. I hope you enjoy it. Continue reading »

A Compassionate and Compelling Tale of Conquering the Past

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Source: Review Copy from Author

TYPE OF AUSTENESQUE NOVEL: Pride and Prejudice Sequel, Minor Character

TIME FRAME: Takes place four years after Particular Intentions, Georgiana is 20 years of age

SERIES: Book 2 of 2 in the Particular Intentions Series (while stand alone, I would recommend reading Particular Intentions first to enhance enjoyment and understanding)

SYNOPSIS: It has been five years since Ramsgate and Georgiana Darcy has still not made her debut. Because of what transpired with Wickham (which is sadly much worse than what happens in P&P), Georgiana has decided to eschew London society and has determined that she will not marry. Ever. But in order to spend the holidays with her brother’s family, Georgiana has decided to return to London after all this time. Georgiana’s time in London begins pleasant enough, but she soon encounters some people from her past – a childhood playmate whom she always found insufferable and a person guilty of causing her great harm and suffering… Will Georgiana overcome her past? Will her secrets cause her ruin? Continue reading »
