First Impressions~ by Debra White Smith

"Love has been perfected amoung us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgement; because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us."

~ 1John 4:12-19

First Impressions is another book in the Jane Austen series that I have been reading. This story is the modern day telling of my all time favorite Jane Austen story Pride and Prejudice. If you haven't seen the Pride and Prejudice movie staring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle STOP NOW AND GO RENT IT!.......I'll wait :)

Anyway, this book is set in London, Texas and the story is about a lawyer Eddi Boswick who is cast as Elizabeth Bennet in a community production of Pride and Prejudice. And ironically the handsome, arrogant, and unpredictable Dave is cast as Mr. Darcy. And the story follow closely with the original initially but has enough twists that even I (who can probably recite the entire script of Pride and Prejudice from memory) wasn't sure how every thing was going to come together.

Next on my reading agenda~ Reclaiming Nick~ by Susan May Warren
