Snowbound at Hartfield Book Launch — 16 Comments

  1. Congratulations, Maria! I’ve enjoyed reading the excerpts you’ve shared and would love to read the entire story. Thanks!

  2. Congratulations on your new publication! I’ve been following your story and have enjoyed them all. Would love to be entered into the giveaway. Thanks!

  3. I have been reading Snowbound at Hartfield with deep interest. Emma is one of my two top favorites of the Austen novels. it is always a pleasure to find a sequel that is based only partially on P&P. I knew that Colonel Fitzwilliam would eventually have an estate. The earldom he came from would make sure of it. They would have preferred that he marry one and since he knew that, he was careful of his own attraction to Elizabeth Bennet. Since the Elliot estate is entailed away from its daughters, marriage to the oldest Elliot daughter is financially not much better than a marriage to the second Miss Bennet. However Colonel Fitzwilliam is now older, he has an estate,and his military service means that he has won himself some space to choose for himself.Socially Elizabeth Eliot is a good match,most acceptable. If she has a boy child and Mr Elliot does not have issue ( I rather suspect he has a low sperm count and his relationship with Penelope Clay is not apt to produce offspring, legal or not), then Elizabeth and the colonel will inherit Kellynch Hall.

  4. Congratulations on the early release! For those who haven’t read it all yet, you’re going to love it I’m sure. One or two interesting twists may be involved!

  5. You have introduced a form of drama later reserved for American soap operA! This is a GOOD thing, as multiple individuals and multiple couples have their lives interwoven into unusual tapestries. Good work, Maria! I’m looking forward to more!

  6. Well, this looks to be great fun! I’ll have to check it out and see if Emma is still doing some matchmaking. Best Wishes! Jen Red

  7. I have read the previously posted chapters and would love to win an ebook to find out what happens! I really liked how you brought together some of our beloved characters! Thank you for the giveaway.

  8. Congratulations Maria. I was surprised this morning to find it on my Kindle. I preordered it as soon as it was available. Thanks for this lovely present. I’ll start reading it very soon.

  9. Congratulations on your early book release!
    We here in Flagstaff are digging out from 37 inches of snow, so I understand the feeling of being snowbound! Lots of time to read, too!

  10. I love your story! It is a fantastic idea that our favourite heroes from different JA books meet each other! We know them all, and it is really interesting how they get on with each other. I’ve checked out your other books, too. “I think this is a beginning of a beautiful friendship”:)
