Title: “Holidays at Pemberley”

Author: Alexa Adams

Publication date: September 22, 2013

Type of book: Fiction/A Pride and Prejudice tale

Is this a part of a series, If yes, which number? Yes, this is book #3. #1 is First impressions and #2 is Second glances.

Summary: With the Bennet sisters happily married and settled Charlotte Lucas is unsure what direction her life will take. Charlotte wants only to be able to take care of herself and to remain respectable. When she meets David Westover she has no idea what the future has in store for her and with a little luck she may just find a love of her own.  

Characters: This book has all of our favorites from Jane Austen’s world. I really love the way that Alexa portrays them.

Favorite bits: I love that Charlotte has her own story and her own happily ever after. Pride and Prejudice is my very favorite book and I always felt so bad for Charlotte. I believed that she could have done better for herself and it is wonderful to see it finally happen for her in this lovely book. Alexa’s books are quick and charming reads that will make your heart smile.

Problematic bits: For me, I don’t really have anything negative to say about this series. If I had to say one thing it would be that I wish they were a bit longer.

*A wonderful addition to my Austen collection!
