Longbourn Library by Trudy Willis

Longbourn Library: A Novel of Pride, Prejudice, and Books

I seldom get to a Pride & Prejudice variation unless I win a book in a giveaway so this was a free download from Amazon which was a pleasant surprise.

Set in an Idaho library mainly we have all our characters - Liz feisty librarian, Jane sweet, Mary quoting good deeds and Kitty being Kitty. Mrs. Bennett being slightly different though gossipy and Mr. Bennett being a good soul. The characters are all there but are placed not as a family(which is what I gathered) which added to the variety. Darcy and Bingley are friends and Wickham is still the pariah of the lot!

It was a fun and entertaining read. What I really needed to get my mind off Melbourne weather.
To add to the misery we have an electricity breakdown which lasted from 10 pm to 6 am this morning. At least it came on this morning. Thank God for small mercies.

This sounds like an enjoyable read. I hope the electricity is back to normal and everyone is more comfortable!

Oh no sorry to hear about the electricity! That's the worst when it's hot!

Glad this was a good read, it does sound fun.

The library setting might convince me to read this one.

Sounds like a good read and a little different too. I heard about the Melbourne power break down, forgot you were there. Ouch.

At least the power outage was throughout the night and early morning. I hope you enjoyed your visit despite the weather! This does sound like a fun one though. I will have to look it up.

This title looks fun. You've been reading some variety. Nice to mix it up.
Hope your weather is better and the electric issues resolved. Happy Reading!
