"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

One thing I love about Pepper’s stories is that her characters have a deep sense of normalcy. It shines through in the little habits and comments, like the simplicity of a dream or talking over tea with hand gestures and a butter knife. This authenticity makes them all the more relatable and down-to-earth as you journey with them through a story.
The references and clever parallels to Austen characters will bring a smile to any Austenite’s face. The humor and comedic situations had me giggling more than once — especially where Ethan and Regency attire was concerned. Beneath the lighter side of the characters, though, is a story of heart. Of realizing dreams might just be in reach, of having the faith to believe in them.
Nora and Ethan will work their way into your heart in this little novella. If you’ve never read a Pepper Basham novel (why not!?), this is a perfect place to start to glimpse her style and storytelling. And, if you love all things Austen, this book will have you swooning and wanting to dance a cotillion!
Thank you to the author/publisher for the complimentary review copy of this collection. This is my honest review.
This collection of romantic adventures begins with the story of Nora Simeon, whose family sends her to Bath, England for a Jane Austen Festival vacation. Arriving full of jet lag, she discovers that her room in the Elizabeth Elliott Inn has been double-booked, with none other than the new owner of the vintage establishment, Ethan Keller. And so it begins!
" . . . nothing in his wildest imaginations prepared him for the grip of sweet connection he felt for a homicidal bonnet-wearing beauty" . . . . . . enjoy watching the Blue Ridge Mountains collide with a tailored suit from Charlotte, North Carolina amidst this enchanting little story that reads more like a full length novel. Sometime second impressions are the very best!
I loved the fact that both Nora and Ethan were long-suffering victims of matchmaking attempts and how they both jumped to the wrong conclusion at their first meeting. This story is sure to bring a smile to any Austenites and Anglophiles out there.
A real attraction and respect develops between the two, through conversation and spending time together. Nora is "super glad to be a twenty-first-century gal" because Ethan kissed her "like she imagined Mr. Darcy would."
Ms. Basham writes the best swoon-worthy, legs turning to jello, kissing scenes, never taking things too far.
This is a fun, romantic comedy, complete with a villain, book and an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon.
*I first read this book in the boxset Love at First Laugh.
I read this as part of a collection of novellas and absolutely loved it! Pepper Basham has a way of just reaching out and grabbing her readers and drawing them right into the scenes of her stories! Loved it and it is destined for a reread.
