About the Author
Cat Gardiner enjoys taking you around the world in her novels, places you may never have been with music you’ve never heard. A member of Romance Writers of America and her local chapter TARA, she enjoys writing across the spectrum of Pride and Prejudice inspired romance novels. From the comedic, Chick-lit “Lucky 13” to bad boy, biker Darcy in the upcoming “Denial of Conscience,” contemporary genres will appeal to many of her readers. “I love to take the reader on a multi-tiered adventure using the sights and sounds not only within the novel but with the use of Spotify playlist, information blogs, and image Pinterest. Books should be an escape to a time, place, or world where you can become immersed.” Married 21 years to her best friend, they are the proud parents of the smartest honor student in the world – their orange tabby, Ollie. They live in Florida but will always be native New Yorkers no matter how far away they are.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Loved this book. It is so interactive. At the end of each chapter you can go to "Liz's" Blog and read more about what is going on; and, you have to read the comments that people post because her friends, family and DARCY all comment on the blog. You got to love it. It is a totally modern day P&P. I have read many versions, but this is one of my top 5.
