"I went into this series with a high level of excitement and expectations - (it couldn't be helped, this book was on my wish-list for over a year!) I'm thrilled to say that Pride, Prejudice and Cheese Grits was an extremely absorbing and entertaining read that definitely exceeded my expectations. It has a perfect balance of southern charm, sweet romance, and clever nods to our dear Jane!"
"Mary Jane Hathaway crafts a sweetly Southern-fried homage to our beloved Elizabeth and her Mr. Darcy. You'll root for the earnest heroine and fall prey to a Darcy who retains his edge. For readers who like their Austen variations as comforting as a deep-dish peach pie." (Beth Pattillo, author of Jane Austen Ruined My Life)
"I went into this series with a high level of excitement and expectations – (it couldn’t be helped, this book was on my wish-list for over a year!) I’m thrilled to say that Pride, Prejudice and Cheese Grits was an extremely absorbing and entertaining read that definitely exceeded my expectations. It has a perfect balance of southern charm, sweet romance, and clever nods to our dear Jane!" (Austenesque)
“Mary Jane Hathaway has struck the perfect balance of southern charm and Austenesque respect in her novel Pride, Prejudice and Cheese Grits.” (The Calico Critic)
“Hathaway references Dante, Wabi-Sabi, and Civil War history just as naturally as she praises the effect of a perfectly paired cocktail dress and bejeweled sandal. While ever keeping the romance at the forefront, conversations between the characters are just as likely to be lively repartee about the value of historic preservation or the changing expectations of women in society, as they are about the best shape of an engagement ring. For readers who love a heart-pounding romance but are tired of floozy characters with nothing to say, Hathaway acknowledges a world of substance and depth.” (CatholicFiction.Net)
“First things first, this book is ADORABLE. Pride, Prejudice and Cheese Grits definitely delivered in the romance department. The Austenian vibe, Southern charm and great characters were the perfect balance. Not too saccharin sweet, but just enough to give me goosebumps!” (Magical Musings)
“Hathaway’s take on Pride and Prejudice is fresh, fun, and funny — a comfort read complete with a couple of comfort-food recipes at the end." (Diary of an Eccentric)
“Mary Jane Hathaway has done outstanding justice to the resurrection of the sparky antics between Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy through her creation of modern day characters: Shelby Roswell and Ransom Fielding in her latest novel, Pride, Prejudice and Cheese Grits.” (Feathered Quill Book Reviews)
“This book was full of southern charm, and for a southern belle like me this was the icing on top of the cake.” (Charming Chelsey’s Book Reviews)
“If you love Jane Austen's Mr. Darcy or even if you haven't a clue as to who he is but want a light funny romance pick this book up! It's the perfect complement to a tall glass of sweet iced tea on your front porch swing." (Rambles of a SAHM)
“I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book from cover to cover. It had a quick start, great pace, and an upbeat storyline. There were well-developed and likable main characters, faith themes, and a multifaceted plot, plus a bonus recipe for cheese grits! This is a great read for lovers of romantic comedies!” (Radiantlit.com)
“As a history fan, Austen fan, and general fan of all things warm and fuzzy (except wool sweaters -- those are itchy), this book satisfied the yen for a light-hearted contemporary romance.” (Black and Gold Girl’s Book Spot)
“The story is comedic, heartwarming and inspiring as the chapters open with classic dialogue from the classic novel of Pride and Prejudice from Jane Austen. You can't help but feel you have fallen right into the middle of something fantastic that will keep you glued to the novel until you see how it all plays out. It truly rates up there with some of the best romantic comedies I watched and read and can only hope that some movie company will pick this up and bring it to the big screen.” (Reviews From the Heart)
“I'm in love. Pride, Prejudice and Cheese Grits is an absolute pleasure to read. The characters were phenomenal and the spin on Austen's classic is another classic in the making." (The Canon)
“Shelby and Ransom were the perfect dueling duo and the dialogue is hilarious. I found many well-done Pride and Prejudice allusions and no, I never got sick of them! Shelby’s mother and sisters are so shallow and snarky, it would be as satisfying as a slice of pecan pie to pop them all in the mouth.” (Bubble Bath Books)
“Several scenes were laugh out loud funny and the dialogue between the characters was mellifluous. Hathaway does a fantastic job of weaving the themes of Pride and Prejudice into her narrative, and whether you are a fan of Jane Austen or not, PRIDE, PREJUDICE AND CHEESE GRITS is a fantastic summer read.” (The Book Binder’s Daughter)

There were some editing issues, but nothing that confused the story for me, as I sometimes find. Then again, you can't even find a news article anymore without editing problems.
I loved, and highly recommend this book!
As mentioned before the formatting was distracting and there were a few typos and missing words, better editing and formatting would make the book so much easier to read. That being said, it was a fun book, I'm glad I read it and will look for books from this author in the future.
The setting is a beautiful small town Southern college. Shelby is on the tenure track and trying to publish several articles about Civil War history in order to cement her position. Unfortunately her latest article received a scathing review from the renowned historian Ransom Fielding. And if that isn't bad enough, now Ransom has invaded her territory by taking a one year position with her college.
Shelby loathes Ransom but unfortunately her oath to avoid him at all costs is quickly cast aside. In fact the headstrong Shelby makes quite a first impression . . . but so does Ransom. He is definitely Mr. Darcy in spades. He looks good, he smells good, and to top it off he's actually a nice guy. But if you are up on your Pride and Prejudice facts you know that there is a BIG misunderstanding that makes Ransom totally off limits.
The ride through all the misunderstandings is definitely a pleasure trip. The food alone is worth the read. (Recipes included in the back of the book!) One of my favorite things was the quotes from Pride and Prejudice at the beginning of each chapter. It was such an added treat that set the stage for each scene.
So . . . if you love Jane Austen's Mr. Darcy or even if you haven't a clue as to who he is but want a light funny romance pick this book up! It's the perfect complement to a tall glass of sweet iced tea on your front porch swing.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
Author Mary Jane Hathaway stays true to the elements readers love in Austen's books, while weaving in a hefty dose of humor, all set against a well-drawn backdrop of a small Southern college. With squeaky clean shades of Bridget Jones' Diary, Hathaway will draw many fans.
The fireworks between Shelby and Ransom are enough to keep the reader turning pages--and snorting a time or two--until the eminently satisfying conclusion.
I really loved the Q&A with the author at the end of the book. Hathaway (the author's pen name) writes novels despite homeschooling six children--a huge feat in itself! The book also contains a book club discussion guide and several 'enhance your book club' activities.
