    1. This is a cute novella about two people who are trying to hide something from their friends. In Justin's case, it's his unfashionable fondness for the novels of Jane Austen, particularly "Pride and Prejudice." In Clara's case, it's her financial acumen and intelligence. Her favorite book? Also "Pride and Prejudice."The two young people meet at the subscription library and find that they have more than just the book in common. One of the things I enjoyed about this book is that it was not just ab [...]

    2. This is where the whole idea to get a girlfriend in the library began. But in the case of Justin and Clara was all quite by chance.Justin was delivering some books, perchance Clara was delivering hers and getting new ones, by chance he saw that they liked the same romance novel (although he says he picks up this novel for a fictitious sister) . And so was born the interest.Justin does not come from a wealthy family. As a third son, he needs to build his own future , and he does this by working i [...]

    3. At a time when vigilant mothers tried to keep novels away from their daughters and gentlemen scorned them as reading material for silly females, both Justin Fellowes and Clara Haley were fiercely devoted to Miss Austen's "Pride and Prejudice." Justin wished for a woman as intelligent, sensible, and pretty as Elizabeth Bennet. Clara wished for a man as steadfast, devoted, and handsome as Fitzwilliam Darcy. From their first encounter at Hookham's Lending Library where they discovered their mutual [...]

    4. In early 19th century London, Justin Fellowes has a secret that he does not want his small group of buddies to know, he loves reading novels and his favorite is Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice." Miss Clara Haley also favors "Pride and Prejudice," as it shows a strong and intelligent woman finding love with a handsome man willing to accept such an intelligent woman. When both just happen to meet at Hookham's bookstore and library returning the same Austen masterpiece, the attraction is immedia [...]

    5. A hero as handsome as Mr Darcy, a heroine as engaging as Miss Elizabeth Bennett and a pair of young would-be lovers who share a similar taste in books. This is a delightful, highly entertaining Regency romance novella. Justin is kind, athletic, handsome and ardent, with a secret. Clara is an intelligent, self-possessed young lady who knows what she wants and is not afraid to strive for her dreams. Together they make a lovely couple. Linda Banche is excellent at showing their growing attraction a [...]

    6. I purchased this as it was on offer at the time and it was a novella – so that even though Regency is not my usual choice of historical (I dislike Austen) it was worth a taste. I'm pleased I did. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It left me with a wide smile and a bright outlook.The humour is gentle, the courtship between Clara and Justin even more so. The social mores of the time being highly critical of reading “novels” is beautifully handled, and Justin’s hiding his reading of ‘Pride & P [...]

    7. This short novella caught my interest as Ms. Banche is making a series based on her lending library. Adding that she puts s humorous slant on the Regency I gave it a try and was pleasantly surprised. The end coming far too quickly and my wanting to know more of not only our hero but our heroine. As well as their friends. We learn enough to know our heroine has more depth to her than most Regency misses, but we need more. Without spoiling the novel it unravels that the two have matters in common [...]

    8. This was a sweet historical Regency novella about two young people who meet in a bookstore and bond over a copy of Pride and Prejudice. It's a quick and fun read. Clara and Justin are likeable as the heroine and hero. I especially enjoyed a scene that harkened back to Colin Firth's wet shirt scene though here it's from fencing. I will read more in this series.

    9. A delightful novella. It was exactly what I was looking for a late afternoon read. The author immediately engaged me using one of my favorite books to bring the engaging couple together. Quite an inventive idea. I enjoyed that the hero was allowed to display his emotions. True men do have feelings! Love it. Would recommend to anyone who is looking for an enjoyable light read.

    10. I really enjoyed this Novella about two people who love the same thing, in this case the novel Pride and Prejudice. Justin believes he has found his Elizabeth Bennett and Clara who has found her Mr. Darcy.

    11. Clean short story, hardly an hour reading, nothing extraordinary and definitely not unmissable. I admit to having higher expectations based on the blurb.

    12. Good reading - clean!. I also read "A Mutual Interest In Numbers" - also good - but couldn't find it on the listing, so I am including it with this review!

    13. This was a sweet historical Regency novella about two young people who meet in a bookstore and bond over a copy of Pride and Prejudice. It's a quick and fun read. Clara and Justin are likeable as the heroine and hero. I especially enjoyed a scene that harkened back to Colin Firth's wet shirt scene though here it's from fencing. I will read more in this series.
