Review: Second Glances – Alexa Adams

A year has passed since the conclusion of First Impressions, and the marriages made by the three eldest Bennet ladies are prospering. Expectations are high for the two youngest sisters to do equally well. Kitty, having excelled in school, receives an invitation to join Georgiana Darcy in her first London season, leaving Lydia to bear the burden of the classroom alone. Will the most forward Bennet tolerate such inequity?

Kitty arrives in London prepared to be happy, but her delight is marred when she finds a most unwelcome gentleman on intimate terms with her hosts. She has met the reckless Sir James Stratton before and would like nothing more than to never encounter him again, but his acquaintance she is forced to endure. Struggling for firm footing amidst the whirlwind of London society, will Kitty be allowed to follow her heart, or will her family force her hand? Join the reimagined cast of Pride and Prejudice as they pursue happiness amidst the ongoing obstacles of life, love, and interfering relations.

My thoughts:
Awwwwwwww, can I just let my review be that, awwww šŸ™‚

Ok ok I will say something more. I just got the same feelings as I did with her other book. It was just so sweet and wonderful. It’s a book that will make you happy. Sure there is some drama and doubt, but most of all it’s just sweet in the most perfect way. Sweet that will make you smile and hope for the best for these young lovers.

This is then Kitty’s book, and she meets a very eligible bachelor by mistake and wants nothing to do with him. Sir James is smitten and the dance these two dance. Kitty is rather like Lizzy and he will be the wiser. I really like how she portrays Kitty, it’s the way I wanted to see Kitty, who was always in Lydia’s shadow.

It’s truly a perfect PP variation. I started reading it and did not put it down before I finished it. I could see Austen writing a sequel like this.

Conclusion:
Utterly charming.

    It's amazing to read of the enthusiasm for a Kitty story! Thank you so much for the lovely review. May I say indulge in an "aww" too? I'm feeling pretty sentimental after reading all the comments.
