"This hilarious Southern retelling of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice tells the story of two hard-headed Civil war historians who find that first impressions can be deceiving. Shelby Roswell, a Civil War historian and professor, is on the fast track to tenure--that is, until her new book is roasted by the famous historian Ransom Fielding in a national review. With her career stalled by a man she's never met, Shelby struggles to maintain her composure when she discovers that Fielding has taken a visiting professorship at her small Southern college. Ransom Fielding is still struggling with his role in his wife's accidental death six years ago and is hoping that a year at Shelby's small college near his hometown of Oxford, Mississippi, will be a respite from the pressures of Ivy League academia. He never bargained for falling in love with the one woman whose career--and pride--he injured, and who would do anything to make him leave. When these two hot-headed southerners find themselves fighting over the centuries-old history of local battles and antebellum mansions, their small college is about to become a battlefield of Civil War proportions. With familiar and relatable characters and wit to spare, Pride, Prejudice and Cheese Grits shows you that love can conquer all...especially when pride, prejudice, love, and cheese grits are involved!"-- Page [4] of cover.

Another Jane Austen spinoff?? Yes, really. Don't let the cheesy (no pun intended!) title put you off. This was a fun and lighthearted modern adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. It's not an exact retelling; it pays homage to Austen's classic work without copying it verbatim.

The characters are rather one-dimensional, and I found the subplot with the grad student a little far-fetched (without giving any spoilers). Overall, though, it was light, it was fun, and it was an interesting chick-lit take on Jane Austen.

An interesting story, somewhat predictable if you are reading closely. But a likeable heroine who is just ditsy enough to be funny.
