Those of us who enjoyed reading Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen which was first published in 1813, will certainly love this Goodreads Giveaway Second Glances: A Tale of Less Pride and Prejudice Continues by Alexa Adams.
Over the years there have been so many adaptations, short stories, and commentaries to the original version of Pride and Prejudice. This literary drama has sparked so much interest because of its satire, its well thought out plot, and the many complex interrelationships happening in the story which makes it even more layered and dramatic. A good book like Pride and Prejudice leaves an impression on the reader and a good story always lives on in the reader's mind. Have you ever wondered what happened to the other Bennet sisters? Author Alexa Adams in her first book First Impressions, has addressed this question and now the story continues in her second book Second Glances.
Here's the Goodreads excerpt of the book:
"A year has passed since the conclusion of First Impressions, and the marriages made by the three eldest Bennet ladies are prospering. Expectations are high for the two youngest sisters to do equally well. Kitty, having excelled in school, receives an invitation to join Georgiana Darcy in her first London season, leaving Lydia to bear the burden of the classroom alone. Will the most forward Bennet tolerate such inequity?
"Kitty arrives in London prepared to be happy, but her delight is marred when she finds a most unwelcome gentleman on intimate terms with her hosts. She has met the reckless Sir James Stratton before and would like nothing more than to never encounter him again, but his acquaintance she is forced to endure. Struggling for firm footing amidst the whirlwind of London society, will Kitty be allowed to follow her heart, or will her family force her hand? Join the reimagined cast of Pride and Prejudice as they pursue happiness amidst the ongoing obstacles of life, love, and interfering relations."
