Charlotte smiled from across the room at the man's obvious devotion to her friend. Such attachment was very charming, undoubtedly, and when it came to an end, as it was most certain to do, they would have abundant good fortune to keep the inevitable aggravations with each other to a minimum. Both a Christmas celebration and conclusion to Tales of Less Pride & Prejudice, Holidays at Pemberley begins where First Impressions ends, with the marriage Fitzwilliam Darcy to Elizabeth Bennet, and spans the course of Second Glances to conclude their story. As the Darcys enjoy their first years of marriage, Charlotte Lucas is often invited to join them. Watching as the Bennet sisters, one by one, marry to both outrageous advantage and with great affection, her only ambition remains independence and respectability, stubbornly blind to the virtues of a love match. Miss Lucas thinks she has found an acceptable husband in David Westover, rector of Kympton and determined bachelor, but he remains oblivious to the implications of befriending a Miss Lucas. It may mean some heartbreak, but if Mrs. Darcy's pragmatic friend will only surrender to Cupid, she may find wild fantasies do come true, even for ladies dangerously close to thirty. Praise for Second Glances: A Tale of Less Pride & Prejudice Continues: "Delightful, diverting, and very hard to put down! I highly recommend!" - Meredith Esparza, Austenesque Reviews

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!
