The 12 Days of a Jane Austen Christmas – A Modern Christmas Story — 42 Comments

  1. I have previously preferred P&P stories to take place in the original time period, but this story sounds very interesting. Thanks for the opportunity to win a book, and I’d like the Pride and Prejudice Journal.

  2. This is a really sweet story, and the before and after were really easy to fill in. I’m glad for Mrs. Reynolds’ scheming ways.

  3. Just loved this thank you 😊. I like any story about Darcy and Elizabeth getting together whether modern or historical and I just love this Darcy. Thanks again.

  4. Normally I don’t like modern P&P stories, but I loved this one. The characters were very Darcy and Elizabeth, and the story was wonderful. I hope there is more story to go with this charming vignette; I would absolutely buy it and love it.

  5. Kara it is always such a joy to read your stories. This has the potential for a whole novel. I loved it! Thanks for sharing. I love Christmas carols although some of them make me cry. Wishing you and your family and everyone here at Austen Variations a Merry Christmas xox

  6. I prefer historical romance, but this story is so sweet. I’ll even bet Richard wasn’t sick and he and Mrs. Reynolds were conspiring. Thank you for such a fun story.

  7. What a wonderful story. Gee. Old spice! My dad wore that when we were teens. It also brings back great memories and moves my heart as it did Elizabeth.

    Thank you for sharing !!
    Merry Christmas !!!

    • That’s what my dad wore, too, and I always associated it with him. I know it’s still out there, but I don’t know how many guys wear it. 🙂

  8. A delightful story–Old Spice and all! (Though why an affluent executive such as Will would wear an inexpensive, old-man scent like Old Spice is a bit baffling…but then, one cannot mistake the scent!)

    The journal looks amazing! 🙂 I’ve never seen anything like it. But then, I also love your books, so it’s a tough decision…especially since Darcy’s Journey is one of my Top Five P&P Faves, so I’d like to have a copy of my very own (I checked it out from the library).

    Decisions, decisions…. 😉

    Wishing you a joyous Christmastide and a blessed New Year!!

  9. Loved this modern Elizabeth and Darcy story. I’m so glad you found that thumb drive. These “finds” are wonderful creations that show your delightful abilities to entertain your readers. Love Mrs. Reynolds. She is always one step ahead of Darcy. Happy Holidays! 🎄 🎄

  10. Thanks, everyone, for your kind comments! I did not have the time to reply to each one, but I appreciate hearing how you enjoyed the story (even though it was modern!). Good luck to each of you in the giveaway!

  11. I really enjoyed this story. I would definitely like to read more…from both ends of it! You transferred Darcy and Lizzy well to this time period! Thanks for sharing it!

  12. Finding a long lost thumb drive is like finding $20 in your coat pocket when you really needed it! These stories have been delightful and this modern adaptation of Darcy and Lizzy was such a treat! Thank you for this early Christmas gift! That board book you are giving away, I gave to my granddaughter for her first Christmas. She was only a month old! Last Christmas I gave her Sense and Sensibility (opposites) and this Christmas she is getting Wuthering Heights (weather)! I love them! Emma (emotions) will be next Christmas.
    Merry Christmas and thank you! I’m torn between the journal and one of your books!

  13. I am so glad that you discovered your thumb drive as the postings have been delightful! I want more of this Elizabeth and Darcy story! Thank you for the giveaway.

  14. Loved this little treat. I really enjoy your writing Ms Louise. I just loved Darcy’ Voyage and plan to reread it soon, since you posted the lost scene recently.

    Wonderful holiday wishes, including a hope for a New Year blessed with every good thing for you and your loved ones. Sending productive writing vibes to you for 2016.

    The journal would be lovely treat too. I have the P&P board books, 🙂 (such a little kid in an old lady body.)

  15. Lovely find! My dad wore old spice so a treasured scent memory! Thank you for sharing, I love reading your writing. It always is so easy to picture it in my mind.

  16. I loved this modern take on Darcy and Elizabeth. It was easy to imagine what happened before…now I want to read more of the “after.”

  17. Kara,

    I love your stories (although you would never know, this is only my second post ever). I am so glad that you found that thumb drive! It was a perfect read for the season. Thanks so much!

  18. Being so busy I just got to read this on Christmas day. It was lovely. And we can suppose how it ends…although I always enjoy the journey there. Thank you for posting this. Happy New Year Everyone.

  19. Congratulations, Annie! You are the winner and I will be contacting you by email to get your choice of prize and directions to get it sent out to you!

    Thanks to everyone for your comments. I truly appreciate them and I’m glad you enjoyed the story.

  20. I loved your Christmas story! Thanks so much for sharing. I have to admit that I was so engrossed in the story that I didn’t even notice our puppy eating some pieces of a board game I had on the coffee table next to me!
