The Typewriter Girl by Alison Atlee

This book was an interesting foray into the construction period of a pleasure resort during the Victorian Era. If you strip away the beautiful setting, you are left with the story of two people who should not, cannot, love one another. One thing that makes Mr. John Jones so irresistible is his accent.  John is [...]

A Little Night Magic by Lucy March (NodAway Falls #1)

Can Olivia find the courage and self-control to harness her power to protect those she loves and maybe, just maybe, find a little of true love in her own life?

A Weekend With Mr. Darcy by Victoria Connelly (Austen Addicts #1)

This was a delightful confection of a novel!  I absolutely adored my Weekend With Mr. Darcy. This feel-good cozy chick lit read is the perfect accompaniment for a girl's night in.  I was left envious of all the Janeites out there who attend the annual Regency conferences and balls as a result of reading this [...]

Midnight in Austenland by Shannon Hale (Austenland #2)

Trying to compare Midnight in Austenland to its original, Austenland, is like attempting to formulate one of those tests you take in high school, the kind that ask you to compare apples and oranges. Midnight in Austenland is to Northanger Abbey as Austenland is to Pride and Prejudice. That is, they are very different books [...]
