THIS IS BOOK #4 IN THE SERIES! (#4 to be published but not actually 4th in series)
The author’s note found at the beginning of Emmalee explains that the books were published slightly out of order. It’s not a huge deal since each book has different main characters. The chronological order is Pride & Popularity, Persuaded, Emmalee, Mansfield Ranch (not yet published), Northanger Alibi, and Sense & Sensational (not yet published).
Book 1- Pride & Popularity- MY REVIEW
Book 2- Northanger Alibi- MY REVIEW
Book 3- Persuaded- MY REVIEW

5 STARS: I LOVED IT!!!
Emmalee Bradford thinks she’s an expert at matchmaking, and she won’t rest until all her friends are as happy as she is. Especially Hannah, the girl she’s decided to make popular. Everyone loves Emmalee’s advice–everyone, that is, except her annoying neighbor Chase Anderson, who has taken it upon himself to “fix” her.
This modern version of Jane Austen’s Emma is the hilarious journey of a girl who believes she knows all about love. But when it comes to recognizing the perfect guy for her, Emmalee is absolutely clueless.
I have to admit that Emma is not one of my favorite characters in the Jane Austen version, but I loved Emmalee in this book! She was so great. Funny when she didn’t even mean to be. Emma had a lot to learn and came across a bit shallow at times, but she really was thoughtful and a loving friend.
And how could you not fall in love with Knightly in the Jane Austen version? Well Chase was just as wonderful in this book, even better. Chase was so charming, cute, thoughtful, and romantic! He was Emma’s knight in shining armor . . . literally. 😉
It was so easy to enjoy reading Emmalee with great characters like Emmalee and Chase. Their chemistry was won-der-full! I loved it!

Hannah- Yes you really need to! If you're in the mood for something light and possibly cheesy. 😉 I love them!
YAY! I adore Jane Austen! I must read these!!! *Pride & Popularity glares are Inky from her kindle…*
Hehe. Great review!
Adorable is a great word for this series. Really fast and light. I love that sometimes . . . actually a lot of times. When I'm pregnant I don't want to think. 🙂
This series looks adorable! I need to read it 🙂 I love Jane Austen.
