Monday Musts: The Girl from Summer Hill, Best TRC Fan Video EVER & Bookish Links

Monday Musts is a weekly event, started and hosted by Jessica @ Lovin' Los Libros, which asks you to highlight your must read, must listen and must see!

The Girl from Summer Hill (Summer Hill #1) by Jude Deveraux

From Goodreads:
New York Times bestselling author Jude Deveraux’s breathtaking new series set in Summer Hill, a small town where love takes center stage against the backdrop of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice

Enter Elizabeth Bennet. Chef Casey Reddick has had it up to here with men. When she arrives in the charming town of Summer Hill, Virginia, she leaves behind a demanding boss at a famous D.C. restaurant and a breakup with a boyfriend jealous of her success. Some peace and quiet on the picturesque Tattwell plantation are just what she needs to start fresh. But the tranquility is broken one misty morning when she sees a gorgeous naked man on the porch of her cottage.

Enter Mr. Darcy. What Tate Landers, Hollywood heartthrob and owner of Tattwell, doesn’t need on a bittersweet trip to his anecstral home is a woman spying on him from his guest cottage. Mistaking Casey for a reporter, Tate tries to run her out of her own house. His anger, which looks so good on the screen, makes a very bad first impression on Casey. Hollywood he may be, but he’s no sweetheart to Casey—and she lets him know it!

The plot thickens. Sparks fly—literally—when Casey is recruited to play Elizabeth Bennet opposite Tate’s Mr. Darcy in a stage adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. Just brushing past Tate makes Casey’s whole body hum. As they spar on and off stage, she begins to think she’s been too quick to judge. Tate’s more down-to-earth than Casey expected, and she finds herself melting under his smoldering gaze. But then, Tate’s handsome ex-brother-in-law, Devlin Haines, who is playing Wickham, tells Casey some horrifying stories about Tate. She is upset and confused as she tries to figure out who and what to believe. As she finds herself falling for Tate, Casey needs to know: Is the intense, undeniable chemistry between them real or is this just a performance that ends when the curtain falls?
ICYMINick let me guest post on her romance blog and review this one.  I definitely recommend this one to fans of P&P, it was fun!!

What are your Monday Musts??
Please consider entering my GIVEAWAY for your choice of book from some of my favorites that I'm recommending all the time!


  1. I didn't realize that Jude Deveraux wrote contemporary, and I really should get on The Raven Series train. Everyone is buzzing about that series lately, so I really feel I missed out. That time factor is kicking me, again.

  2. I haven't read a Jude Deveraux book in years, and she used to be one of my favorite authors. I really want to read this one - glad to know you enjoyed it!!

  3. People are so excited for the new Lara Jean book. I haven't read the first two, but I'm going to have tomake it happen one of these days.
    Happy Monday, Eva!

  4. I was excited to see the Lara Jean announcement too!!

  5. oh the Girl From Summer Hill sounds fantastic. I do love Devereaux but have only read her historicals. I will need to check my library for this one. :)

  6. I want to read this book simply because I love P&P. Adding it to my to-read list!

  7. I've heard of Deveraux, but haven't read any of her books. This one sounds cute. What an awesome video!

  8. Wow, I haven't read anything by Jude Devereaux in so many years. I had kind of forgot about her. LOL Fun seeing something contemporary from her. And that post on 50 ideas for blog posts... love it! I'll be reading that one more in-depth later. Hope you're having a great week, Eva!

  9. I got this one from Firsttoread and just finished reading/reviewing it yesterday. I LOVED it! I can't wait to read sequels in the series. I had only read Deveraux's A Knight in Shining Armor years ago and really enjoyed that one too. I need to catch up on her backlist.

    Now I want to read Pride & Prejudice and Austen's other novels.
