    The Predisposition of Elizabeth Bennet

    An insulting proposal without an explanatory letter…how can they possibly reconcile? When her sister Lydia elopes without a trace, Elizabeth Bennet must put aside her predisposition against Mr. Darcy—the man whose hand she refused months earlier—and plead for his assistance in locating the wayward couple.

The Predisposition of Miss Elizabeth Bennet is delightful, suspenseful and overall a completely enjoyable Pride and Prejudice variation. I was happy to read Hunter Quinn’s debut novel.

    Hello fellow readers! As I am writing this blog review, I am gazing longingly outdoors wanting to go on a Lizzie Bennet long walk. Alas, the skies are gloomy and a walk is not meant to be. So instead, dear friends, I will write this letter to you about a book I just read. The title of the book is The Unread Letter by Kara Pleasants. I must admit at first I found this to be quite a peculiar name. Which letter was unread? Who was it written by? I couldn’t imagine a Pride & Prejudice world without each and every letter. My friends, I knew I had to read…

Excerpt Captain Thomas Scott surveyed the strange man and woman who had boarded his ship. “It would mean ever so much to us,” the lady continued, “if you would be so kind as to place this package in the cabin of one of your passengers.
