Darcy in Wonderland Review at Laura's Reviews

Come by Laura's Reviews to read a beautiful review of Darcy in Wonderland. May favorite bit:
I found this novel to be very enjoyable with charming illustrations. One of my favorite scenes was the tea party in Wonderland which was a fantastic comedy of manners with Mr. Darcy trying to maintain good manners, which is increasingly hard to do with the Mad Hatter in attendance. I thought this novel was a perfect blend of both tales.

First I'm discussing poetry and parody in the book at Savvy Verse and Wit (home of one of my beta readers and fabulous poetry editor - isn't that sophisticated? - Serena Agusto-Cox). Next I have an excerpt at For My Love of Jane Austen. It shows what happens just after Darcy comes crashing down through the rabbit hole. Lot's of fun to conclude an awesome two weeks. Thanks to all who participated!

Musings from the Yellow Kitchen Review and Recipe (Darcy in Wonderland Blog Tour)

I love scones! And I love tea parties. So does Alice, which makes it infinitely appropriate that my hostess today at the beautiful blog, Musings from the Yellow Kitchen, should include a delicious looking scone recipe along with a delightful review of Darcy in Wonderland. Here's a snippet. Continue reading at the link below:
But the character who steals the show is little Alice. She is a delight – headstrong and imaginative, with her mother’s impertinence and a sense of wonder that is infectious.  She has no trouble offering her opinions, even when they are not wanted, and is happy to allow her curiosity free reign. While her poor father frets over the bizarre events around him in Wonderland, Alice happily accepts a world in which animals talk and people can grow and shrink with a nibble of food or a sip of some potion. From her first impulsive dash after the White Rabbit to her bewildered participation in the Queen of Hearts’ croquet game, she is never without something to say.

"Sofa Chat" with Sophia Rose at Goodreads (Darcy in Wonderland Blog Tour)

Whew! We're half way there.

Today the blog tour takes me to Goodreads for a sofa chat with the delightful Sophia Rose. She has been supportive of my books from the very beginning and has also posted an excellent review of Darcy in WonderlandHere is just a quote (read the complete review here).
From the moment I heard of Darcy in Wonderland, I was drawn to it. I thought it exciting that the talented author was turning her attentions to writing a mash-up of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice and Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. Full of curiosity and anticipation, I began and I only set it down twice before finishing it on a note of complete satisfaction.

From Pemberley to Milton, Review and Giveaway (Darcy on Wonderland Blog Tour)

The Darcy in Wonderland blog tour rolls on! A second day at From Pemberley to Milton brings us a beautiful 4 and a 1/2 star review from hostess, Rita Deodato. I think she described the book particularly well in this passage:
Darcy in Wonderland is not a romance, and readers who merely want an Elizabeth/Darcy story will not find it here, but they will find a beautiful sequel showing us how delightful their life was after they married, and how funny their household became over the years with so many different children. The relationship they established with their children is endearing, and we also have the pleasure of seeing how happy and content they are as a couple.
Also readers may enter for a second opportunity to win the international giveaway of a copy of the book. Please join the fun!

From Pemberley to Milton, Guest Post and Giveaway (Darcy in Wonderland Blog Tour)

Today I'm having my first visit to Rita Deodato's fascinating blog, From Pemberley to Milton, where I am excited to be sharing information about Alice Liddell, the young girl for whom Lewis Carroll wrote his memorable tales. It's a strange story, full with lots of questions, but it's also fascinating, if a tad sordid. As well as the guest post, there is also an international giveaway on the table.  Come join us!

Just Jane 1813 Interview, Review, and Giveaway (Darcy in Wonderland Blog Tour)

Today Claudine at Just Jane 1813 was kind enough to interview me, write a lovely review, and host an international giveaway of Darcy in Wonderland. Please visit her beautiful blog for more, but I just had to include a bit of the review:
This is also one of those heartfelt stories where we’re able to catch up with the Darcys many years after their wedding, and not only enjoy their happiness, but also see how the bonds of parenthood have changed them throughout the years. Readers are reminded once again why we have such high hopes for their marital felicity when we close the final pages of Pride & Prejudice. Alexa Adams’ new story allows us to experience their parenthood in a highly imaginative way.
