This is an off-canon P&P story that will thrill, chill, and surprise the reader. The OOC [out of character] behavior of our main characters is only part of the problem. The other reviews have listed things that Darcy and Elizabeth simply would not do because of propriety. However, when someone is in a drastic situation, they are forced to act in a manner that they would not normally behave.
“I never wanted a big wedding. I never wanted to wear a white dress or throw a bouquet.” Taylor Jenkins Reid
What I liked: The page time between D&E. I love when Darcy and Elizabeth get to talk or interact. His first vision of Elizabeth is not the one we think. Georgiana had given him a description of Lizzy so when he walked into the Inn he recognized her. The only problem… Wickham was there and, due to his actions, holy crap broke out at the inn. No spoiler as to what Wickham was doing… just that it was bad. Darcy is my hero.
“Now that I could not go back I was not sure, after all, that I wished to go forward. It was a miserable sensation.” Anna Freeman, The Fair Fight
What I didn’t like: Too much explaining about Georgiana’s situation. Too many people given too much information and too many sworn to secrecy. It was like her story took on a life of its own. It just got bigger and bigger. It soon became the elephant in the room. I am surprised that Miss Bingley didn’t try to sniff out more information. I suppose what Darcy said to her in his office was enough to put the ‘fear of Darcy’ in her head. I certainly wouldn’t want to cross him. Her attitude changed rather quickly after that.
The ‘failure to inform’ trope was also present. That’s where Darcy fails to inform the world that Wickham is a disgusting, low-life, rat-bastard. Which leaves him loose on the landscape so he can inflict his proclivities on the unsuspecting female and mercantile populace at large. He tries to marry/seduce any female with money, runs up debts with the merchants and leaves without paying. Yea, that’s Wickham’s MO.
