Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway-Sally Smith O’Rourke’s Yours Affectionately, Jane Austen

Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway-Sally Smith O’Rourke’s Yours Affectionately, Jane Austen

Sally Smith O’Rourke’s Yours Affectionately, Jane Austen is the second book in her The Man Who Loved Jane Austen series. I haven’t read the first book, which takes the name of her series, and although I didn’t feel lost reading Yours Affectionately, I do feel I would have been better prepared had I read it. At the time I wasn’t aware it was a second book and it wasn’t until I read it that I felt certain events were missing. I do recommend you read the first book and then proceed to Yours Affectionately. Yours Affectionately picks up where The Man Who Loved Jane Austen left off. Eliza Knight has made contact with Fitzwilliam Darcy of Pemberley Farms in Virginia and brought him the letters written by Jane Austen herself…. Read more »

Book Review: Bee Ridgway’s The River of No Return

Book Review: Bee Ridgway’s The River of No Return

The River of No Return is Bee Ridgway’s debut novel and what a spectacular book it is! It’s a mixture of time travel with historical elements. Fans of early 19th century England will be in for a real treat as Ridgway does a superb job with the research and it’s easy to immerse yourself in the era. Readers will be left questioning time and how it coincides with our own emotions. I have no doubt that by the end of the book you’ll be looking at time a little differently. Ten years ago, Lord Nicholas Falcott, Marquess of Blackdown was fighting in one of the bloodiest sieges of the Napoleonic Wars, Badajoz. Facing death at the hands of a Frenchman, Nick suddenly finds himself waking up in a hospital room… Read more »
