Though there are passages pulled from P&P, Reynolds doesn't just drop them into her story as authors often do, as if they feel compelled to pay homage to Austen's language without fully understanding how to weave them into their own works. This book doesn't just talk about what the characters are and feel (as some modern versions do)--it demonstrates all that--so the characters have more depth and earned more of my sympathy.
I do wish, though, that there was a little more to the ending...Read more ›
I love how you see a great deal more of Col. Fitzwilliam in this story that usual. Caught between Elizabeth and Darcy, then Darcy and Mr. Bennet...as well as between some other people I won't mention for fear of spoilers, you feel rather sorry for the poor man. Other favorites of mine were Mr. and Mrs. Gardiner, both of whom managed to be quite devious and lovable. You get to see a harsher side to Mr. Bennet and, surprisingly, to Mr. Bingley, which I found quite interesting.
My only very small complaint is that this book should have been longer. The beginning was just a trifle rushed, but mostly I just didn't want it to end so soon. I would have been very happy with another 200-300 pages so I could just wallow in the delicious romance.
Anyone who loves Austenesque re-tellings will love Mr. Darcy's Refuge. Sweet, funny, and absolutely lovely, I can foresee reading this again and again, just as I do most of Abigail Reynolds' books. This is not to be missed.
I received an advance e-copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Ms. Reynolds has some good moments, especially in the end when Mr. Bennet and Col. Fitzwilliam are teasing and conspiring. Why, oh why, can't the whole book be like that? Elizabeth no longer has a sense of humor and Mr. Darcy is obsessed and can think only of her body. These are NOT the characters that Jane Austen wrote. I enjoy a good P&P take off as much as the next gal, but this was too much of a deviation from the characters I love.
The whole book is basically one sensual moment to the next sensual moment leading up to their wedding night. If you like to be turned on, then this book is for you.
Ms. Reynolds has talent and I wish she would have the courage to write her own book with her own characters in her own time-period. I'd read it with pleasure (as long as it left out the graphic sex, that is).

Another great story from Abigail. Rain and more rain fell on Kent's countryside. The Hunsford Church and home was on high ground so many of the villagers came there for shelter. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Kindle Customer
