Reviews for Lydia Bennet's Story

It's been really nerve wracking waiting for the first reviews of the Sourcebooks edition of Lydia Bennet's Story to come out. This is my first novel and I've had (and am still having) a nail biting time as the reviews are written.
Here are a few snippets from the latest reviews.

In this pleasant addition to the growing micro-genre of Austen knockoffs, Odiwe pays nice homage to Austen’s stylings and endears the reader to the formerly secondary character, spoiled and impulsive Lydia Bennet.
Publishers Weekly.

Her new acquaintances are interesting and well developed, and Wickham is just as scandalous as ever. The ending will be a complete surprise.

Odiwe emulates Austen’s famous wit, and manages to give Lydia a happily-ever-after ending worthy of any Regency romance heroine.
Booklist

I have to say I'm really pleased and can only hope that readers of Lydia will like learning about her story as much as I have enjoyed writing it!

Congratulations, Jane. Stop biting those nails now and get on with writing another, you obviously have a talent for it.

Thank you for your lovely comments. I have written another, and as soon as the children go back to school, I hope I can get on with some more writing!
