REVIEW: A kind of “literary mash-up” and retelling, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (of a sort) is sassy, creative fiction. Ironically, I found it as relevant to today’s society (is there anything that cannot be cured by a dose of infected zombies? *sarcasm*), as it might appeal to those who admire the old literary language that Austen wrote with such class and grace.

The story is, at its heart, the same as Jane Austen’s classic Pride and Prejudice. We meet the feisty Lizzy Bennet only instead of being snubbed for lacking graces, she’s skilled in the arts of weaponry. Mr. Darcy is still as proud as ever with an arrogance Lizzy cannot tolerate. Only in this scenario, they are equally matched in their skill with the sword as trained zombie slayers. With every meeting, the tension crackles as Lizzy’s disgust of the arrogant man rises and his attraction to Lizzy grows. Continue Reading on Silver Petticoat Review ➔

…LIKE NEVER BEFORE is another fresh and inspiring story; it’s traditional without conforming, full of fantastic and snappy dialogue, and genuine in its pursuit of heart-tugging and pure love.

If you’re a fan of contemporary romantic-comedies, there is no story better to become blissfully lost in than one with Melissa Tagg’s name proudly streaming across its cover (especially when its as darling as Like Never Before). If you’re a fan of inspirational stories (with romance) then picking up this novel is a must. If you’re a fan of small town charm then, yep, you guessed it, read a Tagg novel. All of this and more holds up the specs that are unique to “Tagg branding” in Melissa’s latest novel, Like Never Before. Continue reading “Like Never Before by Melissa Tagg”
