The Bridge to Belle Island, by Julie Klassen — A Review

From the desk of Sophia Rose: First, Julie Klassen pulled me into her writing with a haunting, gothic romantic suspense, The Secret of Pembrooke Park, and most recently delighted me with the world of a quaint English village and its occupants in her series, The Tales of Ivy Hill.

Kimberly Hi Laurel, thank you for your friend request! :)

Maria Hi Laurel Ann! Thank you for accepting my friend request!


message 14: by Jeffrey

Jeffrey Just a little fun trivia here to stir the pot: I'm on Ch 12 of The Bad Miss Bennet by Jean Burnett and a name mentioned as one of the Prince Regent's mistresses is (gasp) Maria Bertram! You don't suppose....no it couldn't be.....but......perhaps (??)


message 13: by Laurel

Laurel thanks for sharing Jeffrey. Reassuring to know that other have worked through the problem too.


message 12: by Jeffrey

Jeffrey Hi Laurel Ann: You're in good company because the author at the end of this link is one of the world's most loved and prolific writers and she is also dyslexic!

45th Parallel Communications Hi Laurel, thanks for finding us!

Kim Your book is up on goodreads!! Wahooo!!! Congratulations! So happy for you!


Laurel OK Claudia, P&P&Z is a mash-up of Austen's text with zombies thrown in. The second books is a prequel and a completely new and original story. If you like zombies and gross humor you will love them.

So glad you enjoyed the event Tracy. Georgette Heyer is infectious! I so admire her and want to read everything. I am debating if I should read Frederica or The Nonesuch or The Corinthian. So hard to choose. Thanks for the comment.


Tracy (A Good Novel) The Georgette Heyer month on Austenprose inspired me to finally take the jump and pick up one! I've just started Arabella and it's definitely enjoyable so far!
