the rules all her life. She married her knight in shining armor, the handsome and charming Edward, she loved teaching at the college and planned to start a family. That is until the kitchen table incident when she walked in on Edward and his teaching assistant in flagrante delicto. To make matters worse she becomes entangled in a professional scandal and is accused by said teaching assistant of plagiarism and hence, loses her job. Penniless and heartbroken Emma flees to London to stay with her cousin Anne-Elise. While wallowing in her losses Emma is invited to the home of Mrs. Parrot, a Jane Austen expert and eccentric in her own right. Adam, an old friend is coincidentally staying at Anne-Elise’s house as well and to her surprise this old flame still burns bright. Emma must face her future and learn the true meaning of happy ending. To say I could not put down this quick, easy, enjoyable read is an understatement. And to my delicious delight there is an entire series that awaits me.
