Caroline tried to be her usual self and I wanted to wring her neck. She was vicious and cruel. Talk about throwing ice water on Darcy’s plans. That b-witch was awful. Because Capps, our author, had promised to write within about 100 pages, the plot moved rather quickly. However, it was so well written that our scenes were cut and trimmed so they did not contain that extra fluff that simply gets in the way.
“The greatest gift of life is friendship, and I have received it.” Hubert H. Humphrey
The basis of any relationship is friendship and to watch as Darcy, Gi and Lizzy became friends was simply delightful. I loved watching the friendship grow between the trio. And… I’ll never look at a charm bracelet again the same way. Oh, be still my heart. Loved it.
This is a modern take-off of P&P and we must have Darcy somehow insulting Elizabeth and so it is. But the setting is a pizza parlor. Jane and Elizabeth are at their table when the trio of Charles and Caroline clinging to Darcy's arm walk in. Jane and Charles make eye contact and they must sit together. Weeks later, with that couple's romance guaranteeing that the parties are often together, Elizabeth is rather taken aback when Darcy texts her and asks to meet.
He uses the word "Please" and Elizabeth sighs and agrees. That magic word does work. What she finds out has a lot to do with walls being broken down and with some starts and stops feelings changing. His sister is hitting puberty; he has no female relative or friend to mentor his shy beloved sister through those changes to her body and the added needs for her wardrobe and supplies to have on hand.
I read this story straight through. Elizabeth and Darcy and Georgiana make such a cute trio. But then Caroline scrapes her nails across the blackboard when she informs Darcy within Elizabeth's hearing that she understands the "**** ****". UGH! How like her to have that bucket of ice water to drown another's euphoria.
Read this...great way to fill a short period of time with the need for some more romance for our favorite fictional couple.
Tears at..."a Basset hound that was laying down with his eyes closed".
The story continued with Lizzy guiding Gianna but then started to adolescent to me. The idea wasn't a strong enough plot but was cute at some points. I feel it needed more to help it read more mature. D&E getting engaged even felt rushed and abrupt. It just wasn't as heartwarming and as sweet as the other books I've read by Capps. It felt like it was geared towards 15-16 year olds and was a clean read. Enjoy!
I really liked this variation, such a cute plot! I loved watching Lizzy and Darcy take care of Gianna, and Darcy's love for the girl was obvious. I think the author pegged Lizzy as an author perfectly, I can imagine a modern Lizzy hunched over a keyboard creating her own swoon-worthy leading man. I liked the narration, and think this novella is definitely worth checking out.
