I'm not going to devote the time this topic deserves. That's more of a promise to myself than anything else, but I have been inspired to speak on the subject, and I will do so, even if I do not go as deep as the topic warrants.

I spoke not long ago of Princess Charlotte of Wales when I was sharing my adventures in London Read more of this blog post »

First Impressions by Alexa Adams
"First Impressions

Wonderful tale in the style of Jane Austen, with an every day look of how are couple managed without the original insult at the Meryton assembly. Where they became friends and then fell in love."
Second Glances by Alexa Adams
"I loved this story of the courting of Kitty Bennet. Her suitor, Sir James Stratton, is handsome, charming and rich - but also rather eccentric and he takes several wrong turns on his path to happiness with Kitty, although he obviously gets there i..." Read more of this review »
First Impressions by Alexa Adams
"I enjoyed this variation on Pride & Prejudice very much. It has a very simple premise - that Mr Darcy never made his infamously insulting remarks about Elizabeth Bennet, thus enabling their love story to proceed much more smoothly. Jane and Bi..." Read more of this review »

“No obstacle could stand up to the combined force of alter bound Bennets.”
Alexa Adams

“Mr. Bennet, not for the first time, noted his wife’s occasional resemblance to a cat, right now one who had caught a particularly meaty mouse. He was almost, but not quite, inclined to pet her.”
Alexa Adams, First Impressions: A Tale of Less Pride & Prejudice

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Miss Morland, no one can think more highly of the understanding of women than I do. In my opinion, nature has given them so much, that they never find it necessary to use more than half.”
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

“I use the verb 'to torment,' as I observed to be your own method, instead of 'to instruct,' supposing them to be now admitted as synonymous.”
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

“I cannot speak well enough to be unintelligible.”
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

“Follies and nonsense, whims and inconsistencies do divert me, I own, and I laugh at them whenever I can.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

“Elinor was to be the comforter of others in her own distresses, no less than in theirs; and all the comfort that could be given by assurances of her own composure of mind, and a very earnest vindication of Edward from every charge but of imprudence, was readily offered.”
Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility

It was my pleasure Rachel. I hope you enjoy both Pemberley Manor and First Impressions. I hope to read your thoughts on both books here!


Rachel Hi, Alexa! Thanks for accepting my friend invite! I was thrilled when I saw you were a member of GoodReads! I received Pemberley Manor just a short while ago and hope to read it soon. Thanks SO MUCH for the cute cat note card with it! :) It was great to be one of the winners of your blog giveaway and I can't wait to read First Impressions!

Alexa Adams Thanks. I'm rereading in honor of the Emma premier on Sunday and have been adding my favorites as I go along.


SarahC I loved the Emma quote you just added -- I have been savoring that one for the last few days myself -- what a coincidence that you pulled out the same one.
