Review quote

A delight." --Stephanie Barron, author of the Jane Austen Mystery series on" Pride and Prescience" "Well crafted ...Bebris works her own brand of Austen magic, whetting the reader's appetite for a sequel...Taking a lighter approach than Stephanie Barron's sleuthing Jane Austen series this one should appeal as much to Regency readers as to Austenites." -- "Publishers Weekly" on" Pride and Prescience" "Charming" --"Booklist "on" Pride and Prescience" "Mannered prose, Regency backdrops, moody country houses, and delightful characterization place this new series high on the to-buy list." --"Library Journal "on" Pride and Prescience"show more
