Pandemic Reading List 2021 – Book Review – Prejudice Meets Pride by Rachael Anderson

Book Description From Goodreads:

“After years of pinching pennies and struggling to get through art school, Emma Makie’s hard work finally pays off with the offer of a dream job. But when tragedy strikes, she has no choice but to make a cross-country move to Colorado Springs to take temporary custody of her two nieces. She has no money, no job prospects, and no idea how to be a mother to two little girls, but she isn’t about to let that stop her. Nor is she about to accept the help of Kevin Grantham, her handsome neighbor, who seems to think she’s incapable of doing anything on her own.

Prejudice Meets Pride is the story of a guy who thinks he has it all figured out and a girl who isn’t afraid to show him that he doesn’t. It’s about learning what it means to trust, figuring out how to give and to take, and realizing that not everyone gets to pick the person they fall in love with. Sometimes, love picks them.”

I love Jane Austen stories and am often on the lookout for stories that are based upon one of them. Whilst I was looking through Amazon Kindle this free book came up. I was immediately taken in by the title!

It was a lovely story with the essence of Pride and Prejudice. As it didn’t follow too close to the book it was able to be brought up to date naturally without feeling forced. It was a story that could quite easily happen today.

I loved the characters, although sometimes the pride was taken a bit too far and I ended up thinking that she didn’t deserve the help that she eventually accepted.

The settings were good and the circumstances surrounding them made the story relatable to today i.e there were no balls or forced marriages!

Overall it was an enjoyable read and one which I would read again.

Rated 5/5
