Thank you to everyone who supported us here on the Blog on our extended launch day last Tuesday for our latest novel, Mr Darcy’s Persuasion.
We had a lot of fun and you were a huge part of why the day was such a success for us. ❤️
We’re delighted to say we already have some excellent five-star reviews coming in on Amazon.com and .co.uk and our first blog review (also five stars) was fabulous.
Katie Jackson, reviewing on Austenprose—A Jane Austen Blog, said:
This book had all of the best elements of an unputdownable tale: romance, mystery, villains, tense confrontations, humor, and admirable relationships of all kinds. A reader could not hope for a more satisfying way to immerse themselves in a book.
More blog reviews coming next week, and on Monday, we’ll be on Anna Bitgood-Horner’s blog, Diary of an Eccentric, with an interview and a chance to win an eBook of Mr Darcy’s Persuasion.
