    Great read

    If you love Pride and Prejudice then you will really enjoy this one. The characters are great with Liz all warm and fuzzy and all about family while Vince is all about family but comes across as cold and rigid. Turns out Vince has more heart than Liz first though and it seems that he may be losing it to her. This book is nicely written with a nice steady pace to the story. I definitely recommend this one.

    Fun twist on Pride and Prejudice

    This is a fun contemporary story built on Jane Austen’s novels. The premise is that the modern version of Austen’s heroines are rooming together in a mansion-turned-apartment house. I liked the idea of the heroines of Pride and Prejudice, Emma, and Persuasion all being friends. In this book, there is a Darcy who is proud and Liz who immediately feels prejudiced against him. They have competing antiques businesses in a small Virginia town. It’s not clear why there would be enough business for two such dealers as well as make the Darcy business extremely successful. But just go with it. There are enough touches of Austen in the book to entertain any fan of Pride and Prejudice, but I also liked that there were also somethings that were totally new so that the book wasn’t a simple retelling. And I was glad not to encounter Liz’s mother since she was always so annoying in the original book. There is one stupidly obnoxious younger sister, but one was enough. Instead of being arrogantly superior as Darcy is in the original, this Darcy is really just awkwardly shy which seems to come off as rudeness to others. I liked getting some insight into what he was thinking instead of just seeing him through the heroine’s eyes. This was enjoyable to read. You don’t need to be a fan of Jane Austen to enjoy it, but it will be fun for any Austen lover. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book that I received from Netgalley; however, the opinions are my own and I did not receive any compensation for my review.

    Fun, sharp and sexy

    I’ve never met a Noelle Adams book that I didn’t like. And this one was no different. Competative by nature, Liz’s job makes her doubly so. It is up to her to claim and purchase the very best items available at estate sales. She studies the inventory in advance, checks the layout of the property/home, and devises a plan of attack once she enters the door. But her main strategy is to be number one at the door before it begins. When she has a couple of paintings that she absolutely must aquire, she is aggravated to find a man already waiting at the door. And if that weren’t bad enough, the outcome of their race to the paintings is. After the death of his father, Vince has returned home to help his mother with the business. It’s not really where he wants to be but he recognizes what needs to be done and follows through. Wiith his mother’s instructions clear, he arrives to the estate on time when the most unexpected thing happens. And what happens afterwards is flat out…annoying. I absolutely loved watching this couple meet and remeet. Each subsequent meetings was fun and cute and filled with rife and unspoken emotion. Neither Liz nor Vince could discern their feelings and it resulted in some entertaining moments between them. When they begin to make a move closer to each other, I waited anxiously to see where and how they were going to find their happy ever after. They were both just so clueless at times, in a most endearing way. However, when the conflict arises, I have to admit my heart hurt. Badly. I don’t want to give away who said and did what, but the end result was that both Liz and Vince were suffering from heartache and there really didn’t appear to be a clear way out. But I must confess that I choked up over Vince’s heartache. He had never allowed himself to feel anything and now he was feeling way too much. My own heart ached for him. This is a fast paced read, as all of Ms. Adams’ books tend to be. It is filled with humor and witty banter, great characters that are well developed as well as the secondary characters, some of who will get their own book. Despite this not being a long book, this has a slow burn but when this couple finally catch flame, it is a bonfire. Overall, this is the type of read that you sit back and enjoy without worry that anything is going to make you want to throw your kindle, at least not too badly, and assures you of the sweetest type of ending.

    Addictive read!

    What an amazing read! I am a huge fan of Noelle’s work and this book did not disappoint. Vince might be a bit shy and not know how to express himself or his feelings and Liz is the complete opposite of Vince. She is not afraid to tell you how it is or let you know what she thinks of you. I think that’s why the make such a great couple. They balance each other out which makes them the perfect couple. This is a must read!!! Can’t wait until the next installment of the Pemberley House series. ***Received this ARC by NetGalley as an exchange for an honest review.

    Loved this Book!

    This Austen-esque book starts off a new series and one that seems to hold great promise after reading book one. It introduces us to the main characters of the story, the 3 very different sisters, Liz living at Pemberley House which is perfectly dreamy. Her two best friends, the family business and the men who orbit the story. This is Liz's story, she works for her families antique business and her job is to procure antiques and other items of value to sell in her families struggling business. They were the only shop in town until another family moved in and opened an antique store as well. Vince is our main male character in this one, called home to help his mother's antique business after the death of his father. He's not to happy about it and can be surly. That's only step beyond grumpy. Maybe two or three steps. Vince and Liz meet by accident while arriving very early at an estate sale, Vince is there first and she doesn't know who he is, trying to make polite conversation, he blows Liz off. That sets them off on what's the be a funny at times and thought provoking friendship beyond that. And now since Vince is living next door to Liz and her sister with his friend Danny, how terribly convenient for them both. This is definitely a slow burn and the pace and dialogue of this book is a change from Noelle's usual stories. It at times felt a little too formal for me, riding really close the the edge of Austen's books. Just a tad of an adjustment when the shifts in dialogue took place. Lots of well placed drama in the story, some serious angst going on in the home stretch and I really enjoyed all the characters in this book. Well done and I look forward to the next book!
