#RBRT Review Team

Jessie has been reading The Elizabeth Papers by Jenetta James

“Finis.”

I read the last line, sighed happily and mentally hugged the digital book to my heart (It’s a true downfall of e-readers, they just don’t snuggle like paper does).

This novel flipped between excerpts from Mrs. Darcy’s diary (yes, that Pride and Prejudice Mrs. Darcy) and the 2014 hunt for the lost diary. On the surface that sounds like it could be, well, boring.

It wasn’t.

The chapters switched between time frames in a way that I was never lost in one time yearning for another. I loved the romance, (of the happy sighing kind) and the hard to put down suspense of it all (I know, lost document suspense, believe it!). My only regret is that e-readers just don’t accept hugs like paperbacks do.

Would I recommend it? I have already told everyone who’s been willing to sit and listen that they should read this and you should too! If you’ve ever shown even a passing interest in Pride and Prejudice, historical fiction, sweet romance, contemporary drama or detective stories, try this book! I absolutely loved it and have moved the authors other book to the top of my “to be read” list!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I discovered this book because I’m a proud member of Rosie’s Book Review Team!

Find a copy here from Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com available free from Kindle Unlimited

  1. Terrific review and love your start – hugging a kindle is just NOT the same, I agree – nor does it ever have that ‘newness’ smell of books! Great book and I’ll definitely keep an eye out for it.

    • It totally isn’t the same Annika! I went through a phase of reading a lot on my kindle when I had babies as it was easier but now I am getting back to paperbacks and so enjoying it. The Elizabeth Papers is available in paperback as well!

  2. I just finished this novel last night and I’m still stunned. All my superlatives aren’t enough. When Mr. Darcy said, “If there is a thing in the world I would not do for you, I I do not believe I have found it yet.” I melted, got all weepy, and nearly swooned.
