“An Unexpected Harvest”

Even though ‘I love you’ was a sentiment spoken often and meaningfully between them, he’d never really thought beyond it, never pondered the path those three simple words would lead them down.

Elizabeth Bennet left her affluent New England home at the age of sixteen and never looked back. She’s built a great life in Boston and loves everything about the city—especially her dream job as creative director at an advertising agency.

Will Darcy has never lived anywhere but in rural Stockbridge, Massachusetts. He lives a small-town life and loves everything about the country—especially his family’s farm, which he’s doing his best to modernize and return to prosperity.

When her older sister moves back to New England, Elizabeth reluctantly pays a visit to the hometown she left behind. Soon enough, the city girl meets the country boy and the insults and misunderstandings fly—but so do the sparks.

No one is more surprised than Elizabeth and Will when those sparks turn into a brilliant flame, and the 300 miles between them that once felt far too close suddenly turns into an unbearable distance.

The city girl and the country boy know a good thing when they see it—even if they don’t see it nearly enough. Can they overcome their greatest challenge and find common ground—and their happily ever after?

Excerpt from an early review of An Unexpected Harvest

Rather than sticking to the formulaic, Cat Andrews branches out and reconfigures Pride and Prejudice in new and unique ways. One of the most interesting aspects of this story is how the author has cleverly swapped around the personalities of our favorite characters like a literary shell game. It’s all very complex and masterfully done and there were some characters who greatly surprised me and I’m almost never surprised. There are lots of little moments/details that enrich the plot. The characterization is both complex and interesting. In short: this is an excellent modern variation and you’ll love it.

A soul-bearing and emotionally-stirring romance that is authentic, sensitive, and compelling. An excellent choice for readers who love encompassing and thoughtful contemporary romances! I’ve come to adore Ms. Andrews’s exceptionally-developed and introspective approach to portraying her characters, her creative departures from Jane Austen’s novels, and her exquisite use of setting.

Cat Andrews has once again taken an old favorite and put an unexpected modern spin on it. While the twist of switching the main characters’ roles isn’t a new one in modern-day stories inspired by Pride and Prejudice, this one is done so masterfully that it certainly feels fresh.

                                                                                   

This story is sublime. The characters have been flipped, tossed about, reengineered and repurposed yet still, while you read, you still see THEM. There are successful women and confident men who all carry vulnerabilities and often, their hearts on their sleeves. I would give this story 10 stars if I could and it would be so worth it. I love this story and highly recommend it.
