The first 3/4ths of the book was a pretty rushed retelling of P&P, with some small but fun differences. But it was strangely lacking in angst or romance. The author does not usually produce this kind of writing. It was very off putting.
But the last quarter was more like her earlier novellas. So that’s nice. Really though the story deserved another 100 - 150 pages. A really good plot was wasted on rushing the story and it’s lack of feeling and detail.
So, I was a little disappointed but have faith that the author will rebound back to normal in her next book 📖
I really love it when an author gives Mr. Bingley more backbone, and that plot choice makes all the difference in the story here. Even though he goes to London after the Netherfield ball, and his sisters, Hurst and Darcy all follow him there, Bingley insists on returning to Hertfordshire to court and marry Jane. The superior sisters refuse to accompany him, but Darcy reluctantly does. This leads to a Hunsford-type encounter between Darcy and Elizabeth. He unexpectedly (to them both!) proposes marriage and gets an earful of what she really thinks of him. This changes the whole trajectory of the story, since Darcy's "ah-hah" moment is so much sooner, as is Elizabeth's.
For some reason, even though the story itself is interesting from the start, the writing in the early chapters don't flow as smoothly as the rest of the book, which is why I don't think this rates a full 5 stars. However, it's a short story, and it definitely improves as it goes along.
I do enjoy the way Darcy and Elizabeth get to know each other better before she makes a commitment to him. A side story involving Mr. and Mrs. Collins also provides some intrigue.
Collins is a cad, beating Charlotte and she abetted him by hiding the evidence of her bruises. Wickham is what he always is but not a major player so is unable to do too much damage. Of course, Mr Darcy is the solution to all such problems.
Great story with a cup of tea.
