PRIDE, PREJUDICE AND CHEESE GRITS
Shelby Roswell is a history professor on the fast track to tenure until her new book is crushed in a review by the famous historian, Ransom Fielding. She struggles to regain her momentum only to discover that Fielding has taken a visiting professorship at her college. The place that was once a refuge from the poverty of her past is now a battlefield of Civil War proportions.
Ransom is still struggling with his role in his wife’s accidental death six years ago and was hoping a year at Shelby’s small college would be a respite from the reminders back home. He never bargained for falling in love with the one woman who would give anything to make him leave. Together Shelby and Ransom learn that home is never very far away, and when you least expect it, love arrives.
With a cast of Civil War re-enactors, an evil wedding planner, antebellum mansions, and several mysterious diaries, 'Pride, Prejudice and Cheese Grits' will take you on a touching and hilarious ride through a modern South you haven't seen before.
Brilliant and funny and whimsical with some deep-rooted truths thrown in. I was completely captivated.
I love Shelby and all her foibles, especially her penchant for inserting her foot in her mouth. She's always spoiling for a fight but that's only because of her passionate drive to fight injustice wherever she finds it. She's vibrant and alive and relatable.
Ransom -- adore the name by the way. He's like a slumbering giant who is jarred awake by the fiery Shelby. Rousing to life again makes him awkward and 'growly' though. So fun to watch the two battle wills and numerous misunderstandings that often lead to laugh-out-loud one liners too good to miss.
A light-hearted and touching nod to Austen's classic Pride and Justice.
