Editorial Reviews

Review

Jane Austen and Southern romance fans alike will enjoy this sweet echo of the Regency classic. The story is adorably funny in its Shakespearean comedy of errors as Caroline and Brooks continually misunderstand each other and their romantic feelings…Their first kiss is well worth waiting for—for readers as much as the made-for-each-other couple. (Romantic Times (four and a half stars))

“I loved watching them slowly fall in love and rarely do I comment on such a thing, but the kiss in this book was awesome. I had to go back and read that thing again.” (Remain in His Love Review)

I read Pride, Prejudice and Cheese Grits and loved Shelby and Ransom. I didn't think I'd love this one as much, but I'm totally torn, and can't choose. Caroline and Brooks were perfect in their discovery of each other as more than friends. Brooks, wow- what is it with these Sourthern gentlemen that has me fanning myself while I read? The author sure knows how to craft these heroes; I was even jealous of Caroline at that dance with Brooks.
Although based on Jane Austen's Emma, the story is orignal and engrossing. I read it almost in one seating. The Sourthern setting, the cast and the plot make for a delightful novel that I highly recommend.
Don't take too long to pub #3, please!

After reading the first book in the "Austen Takes the South" series, I knew I wanted to read more. This book was also an enjoyable read, just like the first one. Pros for me: easy summertime reading, nice character development, romance but not a "bodice-ripper", Christian content but not overly so, great references to Jane Austen, and set in the south which is just a novelty to me since I don't live there. It is connected to the first novel, but I wouldn't call it a sequel. You could definitely read the books out of order. My only cons were that it seemed to end too quickly. About one more chapter would've tied up all the loose ends very nicely. Also, I didn't feel that the villains were adequately dealt with. I missed the justice they had coming to them. Other than that, I really enjoyed the book and am looking forward to the next one in the series. I hope it connects to "Sense and Sensibility."

The ending just felt too rushed and abrupt, like the author was too close to a deadline and needed to just get things wrapped up. And, I still have lots of questions about what was really going on with certain suspicious and scheming side characters. Loved the main characters and most of the side characters (especially Blanche)and I thought the author really pulled off a great little tribute to Austen's "Emma". I looovvved "Pride, Prejudice and Cheese Grits" immensely, and the southern charm and humor that infused that story can be found in this one as well. This was not a sequel to PP&CG but there are some ties, so I am wondering if the story of how the schemers are revealed and wrongs righted will show up in a third book... All in all, a charming light read for Austen geeks/southern girls like me-- or really anyone!

I really enjoyed reading this book and loved the character development. The ending came too soon, almost as if (also mentioned by another reviewer) the author's deadline had arrived and she needed to turn in the manuscript before it was completely finished. I did like that it was a very clean romance. I also appreciate the recipe for Mud Pie. This story definitely made me want to watch the PBS version of Emma and possibly tackle reading Austen's Emma.

Mary Jane Hathaway in her new book, "Emma, Mr. Knightley, and Chili-Slaw Dogs" Book Two in the Jane Austen Takes the South series published by Howard Books takes us into the lives of Caroline Ashley and Brooks Elliott.

From the back cover: When the friendship of a lifetime turns into something more, will she see the truth before it's too late?

From the bestselling author of Pride, Prejudice, and Cheese Grits comes a new and comical contemporary take on the perennial Jane Austen classic, Emma.

Caroline Ashley is a journalist on the rise at The Washington Post until the sudden death of her father brings her back to Thorny Hollow to care for her mentally fragile mother and their aging antebellum home. The only respite from the eternal rotation of bridge club meetings and garden parties is her longtime friend, Brooks Elliott. A professor of journalism, Brooks is the voice of sanity and reason in the land of pink lemonade and triple layer coconut cakes. But when she meets a fascinating, charismatic young man on the cusp of a brand new industry, she ignores Brooks's misgivings and throws herself into the project.

Brooks struggles to reconcile his parents' very bitter marriage with his father's devastating grief at the recent loss of his wife. Caroline is the only bright spot in the emotional wreckage of his family life. She's a friend and he's perfectly happy to keep her safely in that category. Marriage isn't for men like Brooks and they both know it... until a handsome newcomer wins her heart. Brooks discovers Caroline is much more than a friend, and always has been, but is it too late to win her back?

Featuring a colorful cast of southern belles, Civil War re-enactors, and good Christian women with spunk to spare, Emma, Mr.

In this contemporary rendition of the classic Jane Austen's Emma, Caroline is back hone in Thorny Hollow to take care of her fragile mother. Caroline had been a successful journalist but her father's death made her return home essential.

Her long time friend is Brooks, a professor of journalism at a nearby college. He is a bright spot in Caroline's life, a voice of sanity in a world of lemonade and bridge parties.

The settled world of Caroline and Brooks is rocked when a handsome fellow comes to town and asks Caroline to write copy for manga books at his up and coming digital publishing company. Brooks doesn't trust this fellow – or is he just jealous?

This novel is good southern romance. There are garden parties and southern belles to match. There are Civil War reenactments and homes full of antiques. There are good guys and bad guys and a few quirky ones too.

The characters were well presented. Brooks is a real southern gentlemen. He'll even buy a cake when he knows Caroline has messed up the one she baked for her mother's bridge club. He is so gentle he has trouble expressing his deep feelings for Caroline. And Caroline seems to be that typical southern woman who wants to fix others' lives. She does grow in the novel as she realizes her fix isn't always what is best for the other person.

This is the second in the series yet it can easily be read alone. I didn't find as much humor in this one as I did in the first novel. I did enjoy reading about the Civil War aficionados. Those guys (and gals) really get into character. This is a nice southern romance and will give additional pleasure to those who enjoy Austen's novels. The author has even included a couple of recipes at the end of the book.

I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
