Book Description: Loosely based on the beloved Pride and Prejudice, Debra White Smith’s First Impressions weaves a spell–binding, modern–day tale on the challenges and rewards of love.
Eddi Boswick has just settled in Texas to establish her law practice. Joining a local theater group, she is thrilled when she is given the role of Elizabeth in Pride and Prejudice.
William "Dave" Davidson III amassed a fortune in the computer industry but leads a quiet life on his ranch. On a dare he tries out for the play and lands the role of Darcy.
Sparks fly each time the lawyer meets the rancher. When Eddi uncovers Dave’s secret will her heart soften? Will Dave’s fear of "being tamed" keep him from discovering love?
My Review: If you're a died in the wool Pride & Prejudice fan then you'll want to read the Austen Series by Debra White Smith. First Impressions is the first book in the Austen Series. Even though the books are loosely based on Pride & Prejudice you'll begin to notice the similarities as soon as you begin page one. This is a modern day romance with the Pride & Prejudice back drop. The story takes place in Texas (yay!) Two men, one lady! Yes, as you can guess sparks will fly . . . some because of attitudes, some because of I-can't-believe-I'm-falling-in-love-denial. Who will win the hand of the lady, Eddi? A great read! I am amazed at how well this series is written. To my knowledge no one else has written a series such as this based on a classic. Each book is a stand alone read but of course you'll want to read them all! Another 10 star read! I know *sigh* I can only give 5 stars....but this a one of those great-tastic reads you'll want to read! over and over and over and over again! But maybe not in the same summer.
*Yes, if your number is drawn (see Monday's post) you might choose to win THIS book ^_^
