I really enjoyed the "Given Good Principles" trilogy. Unlike many variations I've read, the plot twists and character tweaking felt natural and not forced. The dialogue and pacing were strong. It was well written and well edited, and made me laugh out loud several times.
The first book concentrates on Darcy. It gives us a great picture of who he is at the point where he and Elizabeth meet. The second book, focuses on Elizabeth in just the same way. The first books really set up the personal struggles each faces. Both wanting to be better people, showing both successes and failures.
With the stage thus set, the third book ponders the questions of appearance and substance. How do you take the measure of a man (or woman)?
Usually, I shy away from sequels to P&P - the coming together of Darcy and Elizabeth is what attracts me. However, I enjoyed these works so much, I would love to see this author tell me a little more about our favorite couple.
"Fitzwilliam, Come quickly. She has four sisters. FD"
For this line alone I give this book 5 stars!!
