Elizabeth Adams Birthday with giveaways

Good afternoon everyone,

I hope you are all having a great week and that fall is already warming your hearts 🙂 I’m not sure if y’all know but for the past two weeks I’ve been traveling through the Deep South in the United States, and I’m amazed with all the fall colors and decorations.

I started my trip in Miami, went down to the Florida Keys and then up to New Orleans and finally Tennessee where I had the most wonderful host anyone could ever have!!! It’s because of her that I’m publishing this post today, it is her birthday and I would like to ask you all to join me in wishing Elizabeth Adams a happy birthday!!!

While I was staying with her I learned a lot about the United States culture and even more about the southern ways, I visited lots of interesting places and I got a collection of signed paperbacks!!!

If you’ve been following my blog you know I love paperbacks, especially when they are signed, I love all the benefits of ebooks but who can resist an old fashioned paperback to put in the library?

My love for paperbacks inspired Elizabeth and to celebrate her birthday she is offering one signed copy of each of her books to her readers. This means that 6 different readers will get a chance to win one of her books, isn’t that a great idea?

Which one would you prefer to receive? Let us know in the comments your order of preference and why you’ve chosen that order. The giveaway winners will be randomly selected and the prizes will be attributed as in a lottery, meaning if you are the first name to be choosen you will have a chance to select any of the 6 books Elizabeth has published. If you are second you will have to select between the 5 remaining and so on, so it is important that you state all the books in your order of preference.

Your comment will gain you an entry in the giveaway and the winners will be announced in the beginning of November 🙂

If you want more chances to win a signed paperback share this post on any social media and let us know about it, we will consider that as an extra entry 🙂

As you can see from this picture Elizabeth is really happy to sign the paperbacks and offer them to you 😉 But if you are not sure about which book you would prefer, here is the list of all her published books with a small blurb for you to know what to expect 🙂

The Houseguest

When Georgiana Darcy comes to Netherfield to visit her brother, she becomes friends with a neighbor, Elizabeth Bennet. After Miss Darcy has returned to London, she invites her new friend to stay with her at the Darcy home in town … unbeknownst to Mr. Darcy.

Will this change in circumstances lead to a change in affections?


Mr. Bennet discovers his days are numbered, so he immediately begins to set his affairs — and his five unmarried daughters — in order. Knowing they will fare best should at least one of them find a suitable husband, he cannot refuse any respectable suitors.

The high-spirited Elizabeth suspects something isn’t right in the halls of Longbourn, but nothing prepares her for a certain haughty gentleman from Derbyshire. While Mr. Darcy is exceedingly wealthy and handsome, in Elizabeth’s opinion, he is also proud, high-handed, and insulting. And unfortunately, desperately in love with her.

Suddenly, Elizabeth is forced to rethink her previous opinions. And accept a choice she never had the chance to make.

Meryton Vignettes

What becomes of Longbourn when the Collins family inherits? How does Charlotte manage both her husband and an estate? Can she truly become the mistress of Longbourn while living in Mrs. Bennet’s shadow?

Caroline Bingley learns there’s more to life than chasing after Darcy. Can she find true affection? How will she live down the humiliation of being passed over?

Sometimes childhood experiences inform adult observations. Unfortunately for Mr. Darcy, Elizabeth’s recollections are not in his favor.

Mrs. Bennet makes a shocking discovery and her family must deal with the consequences.

Elizabeth navigates a situation she never thought she would find herself in, and in so doing, she learns more than she bargained for. Disturbingly more.

A jaded and mature Lydia finally grows up, but is the price she pays worth the wisdom she gains?

In this collection of six short stories, the people of Pride and Prejudice move on, grow up, and explore paths not taken. Time leads these beloved characters down roads of self-discovery, courage, and heartbreak. And sometimes, the journey takes them to surprising places.

On Equal Ground

Well-read, observant, and spirited, a young Elizabeth Bennet draws the attention of a wealthy widower.

When she finally meets Mr. Darcy, she outranks him. Of course, that doesn’t stop him from insulting her. Married and wealthy, is she still beneath his notice?

Elizabeth’s high society connections create new opportunities for her sisters and, in turn, keep Darcy close to her family.

When tragedy strikes, will Darcy rise to the occasion? Or will his propensity to give offense show no respect for rank?

The 26th of November

The Netherfield Ball: Classic. Predictable. Immortalized.

But, what if Elizabeth were forced to relive it over and over and over again? Night after night after night?

Elizabeth: Clever. Witty. Confident.

Suddenly, her confusion and desperation make her question things she long thought she knew.

Mr. Darcy: Proud. Unapproachable. Bad tempered.

In this world where nothing is as it seems, Elizabeth must learn to see through new eyes.

Including a man she thought she hated.

Let the hilarity ensue.

Green Card

William Harper has it all: looks, money, power. There’s just one tiny problem—he’s about to be deported. He needs a green card. Fast. An American wife is the easiest way to get one. But where will he find a woman to marry him on such short notice?

Elizabeth Barrett is a full-time student, part-time dog walker, and weekend tutor. With a roommate who just ran out on her and neck deep in tuition payments, she needs money. Now. Harper just might make her an offer she can’t refuse.

He thinks he’s worked out the perfect deal, she thinks she’s signed up for an easy job. Neither of them bargained for the ride of their lives.

Oh, and yes, that’s me with all the paperbacks I got :)))) Look at the smile on my face :))

Happy Birthday Elizabeth!! 🎉

And good luck in the giveaway everyone 🙂

    Happy Birthday, Elizabeth! You DO realize you’re supposed to RECEIVE gifts on your special day and not GIVE them, right? 😉
    Thank you so much for your generosity. I’ve read and loved your books, but my absolute favorite is “On Equal Ground”. It’s one of my all-time favorite JAFF books. If I were able to win a signed copy, I would be all verklempt!

    • Thanks, Pam! It’s actually a Ukrainian custom to treat others on your birthday. They may also bring you a gift, but you take everyone out and buy dinner and do a big celebration. In that spirit, I’ve started doing some sort of giveaway every year on this day.

      I hope you win the one you want! Fingers crossed!


    • Pam Hunter

      If I’m lucky enough to be picked but can’t get “On Equal Ground”, here is my list of the remaining books in order…
      2 – Unwilling
      3 – The 26th of November
      4 – Green Card
      5 – The Houseguest
      6 – Meryton Vignettes

      Thanks for the lovely giveaway!

  4. Also … ahem I love them all… but one of my faves is Greencard… followed by Unwilling… really it’s tough because they are all good… Happy Birthday again!😝🎂🍭🥂

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! October is a beautiful month with all the fall colours and crisp cool air! There is nothing like a lovely walk admiring nature and when the sun is shining, it just sparkles!

    What a fabulous trip you are having Rita and what a fabulous giveaway! I too love my paperbacks and have a shelf just for ones that have been signed, small, but worthy shelf! As to which order, now that is making it tough to decide…have all but one of the books (e-books)…so here goes!
    1. The 26th of November (because I don’t have this one…yet)
    2. On Equal Ground (because I absolutely loved the dual marriages)
    3. Unwilling (because I absolutely loved this one too and is a close contender to #2)
    4. Houseguest (because it was the first book I ever read from Elizabeth and loved)
    5. Green Card (I have this one on my Kindle but haven’t read it…yet!)
    6. Meryton Vignettes (because all the others are so much longer!)

    Thank you so much for this wonderful giveaway and good luck to all!

    What a fabulous idea! I love every single one of Elizabeth Adam’s books but my absolute favorite is “Green Card”, then “On Equal Ground”, “The Houseguest”, “November 26th”, etc. But truly, if I won any of them I’d be thankful and happy! Thank you Elizabeth for your generosity and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!🎂

  11. Wishing you a very Happy Birthday, Elizabeth, and many more of the same!

    Sorry you didn’t make it to South Carolina while you were in the Southlands, Rita, but glad to hear that you had a good trip. We have also enjoyed Tennessee each time we’ve visited.

    Thank you for your generous giveaway, esp inasmuch as while I love my kindle I much prefer print books. When I was a kid our family had a tradition that *we* gave out presents on our birthdays. I’ve already read Green Card recently (a don’t-miss read) and Unwilling (some years ago). I would love a signed print copy of Green Card for when I re-read it, altho’ any of the other four would be terrific, with 26th of November my pick for next on my Must-Read list. With all best regards – JPB

    I loved THE HOUSEGUEST when you posted it on AHA but somehow I missed the announcement that it had been published. When I happened upon it by accident, I bought the kindle version and it has become one of my favorites that a re-read often. I last read it a few weeks ago but I’d love to have a signed copy to pick up whenever I wished.

    Thanks for writing your books!

    Happy birthday, Elizabeth! Are you perhaps a hobbit, giving away presents on your birthday! It’s so sweet of you to have this giveaway.

    Oh, I would love to win this! I love Elizabeth Adams’ books!

    My first choice would be Green Card, an all-time favorite and one I reread regularly. Second would be the 26th of November, a newer book but I really loved it. Houseguest 3rd… would it get boring if I said it’s a favorite, too? Then On Equal Ground, Meryton Vignettes, and poor Unwilling only in last place because I already own the paperback.

    What a generous giveaway From Elizabeth, especially when it’s her Birthday. It’s mine next week but unfortunately I haven’t written any books to give away 😦
    I think you are exceptionally good to offer these to your readers Rita, it must have been tempting to keep them and say nothing 🙂
    I have the paperback of Houseguest as it was one of the first I bought (before I got my kindle)
    So, if I’m lucky enough to win I would choose the others in this order:
    1. The 26th of November
    2. Green Card
    3. On Equal Ground
    4. Unwilling
    5. Meryton Vignettes
    I have read and loved them all but signed copies are such a treat so thanks to both of you for the opportunity.
