The historical romance Dearest Friends retells Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice as a sensual adventure that will delight a modern audience. Fitzwilliam Darcy left Hertfordshire following a friend’s betrayal, but his heart remained with Elizabeth Bennet, the impertinent beauty who captured his attention in ways no woman ever had before. When he encounters her unexpectedly in London, he realizes he can no longer live without her and begins his pursuit for her hand. When he finds that Elizabeth is not free to marry, will he again walk away or will he fight for the lady he loves?
While Darcy and Elizabeth pursue their own happiness, around them friendships progress to love and infatuation leads to disappointment. Join a group of unlikely friends as they support our dear couple on their journey, each treading unique paths along the way.
“Dearest Friends is an ‘excessively diverting’ and enthralling Pride and Prejudice variation!”–Austenesque Reviews
“This was a wonderful read and a great ‘visit’ with my favorite people. Pamela Lynne brings out the best and the worst in some of these people and makes the story so much more. I highly recommend this title to any JAFF lover.”–The Ardent Reader

This historical novel tells the story of "Pride and Prejudice for the modern reader in such great detail and exquisite writing style. Darcy and Elizabeth captivate their audience again in this version of the classic tale with a new spin on an old story. 

Elizabeth has just come back from Hertfordshire and is now living with her aunt and uncle in London because of a disgrace to her and her family. Darcy and Elizabeth met in Hertfordshire when Darcy was dealing with his own family disgrace and the two did not get along at all as Fitzwilliam Darcy was rude to her. However, Elizabeth has not left Darcy's mind since their meeting. When he happens to come upon her again in a quaint London bookshop, he vows to rectify his original behavior and make Elizabeth his. The couple begin to court but many circumstances make it impossible for the couple to be truly happy. 

This story was extremely entertaining from page one and does not disappoint as the story moves on. I feel the characters were believable and fun to read about. Even though this was a modern take on a classic, I really felt the author did a great job at telling her own story and really spicy it up with a modern twist! There were some very laughable moments at the family relations that went on between Darcy and his family and the author did a really good job at making this story light hearted but also intense at some points as well. I would most certainly recommend this novel to the modern reader and it is one that I am glad to have had the opportunity to read. I am looking forward to reading more by Pamela in the coming months.

About the Author

Pamela Lynne grew up in the American South, surrounded by Southern Gothic works by Faulkner, O’Connor and the like. These authors helped shape her evolving mind and continue to influence everything she produces as an adult. It was a Regency-era wit from across the Atlantic, however, who seeped into her being.
She often describes her developing years as “Longbourn, The White Trash Version,” and credits Jane Austen for what little sense she brought away from that time. She has met her share of Willoughbys and Wickhams, Bingleys and Tilneys, and writes about them all.
Pamela currently lives among the rolling hills of Tennessee with her husband of more than a decade, three kids, two cats and one very blond dog. She is still a Marianne hoping to grow into Elinor, or Clairee from Steel Magnolias.
