This series of modern retellings of Jane Austen’s work by Sonali Dev is a delight. While the original works are not set in the same universe, these stories are – and it’s a delightful family.
I loved how this installment included so much delicious food and a contest – also a long, lost love who never let go! It’s sweet and just a delight. It’s the 2nd in the series (3 books are out now) – I read them out of order 1, 3, 2 – which is fine, but I knew how this one would end and the full conclusion since I’ve already read #3, so I recommend reading in order if possible.
“The downside of choosing cowardice was there was only so long you could hide. Problems were patient. They always waited you out.”
