This tale is low angst with lots of suspense and mystery. Yes, there is a HEA!
Full length novels like this one are my preference over quick-read novellas. It took me a day and a half to read this one!
This story goes into my kindle P&P collection and will be reread yearly. Happy reading!
As anticipated, this latest did not disappoint. Quite the page turner with Darcy returning from a year abroad after his disastrous, unsuccessful proposal at Hunsford. How Grafton masterfully weaves her story, entangles all the players, and finally leads us to their well-earned happily-ever-after... Well, pure genius. This one is not to be missed.
Mr. Darcy has fled to the continent with Georgiana in an attempt to escape thoughts of Elizabeth, dreams of Elizabeth, the image of her as she rejected his proposal at Hunsford. Georgiana and he have become much more open with each other and he has shared his heart break with her. Now back in London he jumps into The Season determined to fulfill his duty; the Darcy line needs an heir, Pemberley needs him back at the helm with a wife by his side. He decides on an Eleanor Latimer, a proper demure young lady with a £50,000 dowry.
But in reviewing the books from Pemberley while in London, he notices new tenant by the name of Bennet. He and Bingley take a short ride to Netherfield and between a housekeeper's relating the local news and a headstone in the church cemetery, discover that Lydia and Mrs. Bennet are dead, after Lydia's infamous elopement. The Bennets have moved away as have the Philips and no one knows where the former family relocated.
Darcy and Georgiana return to Pemberly with company expected: Charles is coming with his twin half-sisters, the Latimer family is coming (Darcy expects to propose but nothing has been stated...yet) and another family, with an eligible daughter is also expected. The colonel will take some leave and be there for a while, in addition.
There are amusingly ironic events at the on start: Darcy walks at dusk to the cottage of his new tenants as the name "Bennet" is just too coincidental and he must determine if it is the Hertfordshire family. Elizabeth hears what she thinks is the nuisance of a fox who has been annoying the chickens & steps out to toss a bucket of water in the direction of the disturbance...on Mr. Darcy. Then there are the Bingley twins who, between their sightings of a ghost in the tree tops and the little tricks they pull off and "arrangements" they plan as matchmakers...get it all wrong in the latter and "serve" one trick on the wrong party in the former, keep the other guests apprehensive as to their next move.
Eleanor Latimer's father has a great many reasons to believe that the purpose for their invitation is that Darcy will be proposing. He lets Darcy know right from the beginning of their visit what he expects and then pushes for the event at every opportunity. Darcy has had a year to get over Elizabeth. This story is all about his quest to determine if he was successful and to determine his next move.
The tension between Elizabeth and Darcy is such that even in the second reading I was on-the-edge-of-my-seat wanting to push them into each other's arms, wanting a kiss, a touch, a mutual sharing of a look and a smile. Well done.
The Bennets have fallen on hard times and through some sick twist of fate now reside in Derbyshire. I will leave it at that because it's worth reading the circumstances of Lizzy ending up living there. But yeah suffice to say the accidental reunion at Pemberley does happen...sort of. (Slight spoiler alert: I don't know if it was intentional but the accidental meeting did cleverly involve Darcy in wet attire).
Darcy and Lizzy themselves were such a joy to read. Frustrating at how often they were interrupted and couldn't get their feelings out, but not in a bad way. I just wanted them to declare their love! But I loved their interactions in this story.
But besides them, can I just say how much I adored the Misses Bingley?! No, not Caroline and Louisa. Turns out Charles has a lot more sisters in this story and his young twin sisters play a big role in the story. Along with (of course) Colonel Fitzwilliam, the girls provided such delightful comic relief for me!
There's mysteries that need to be solved in this story. I pretty much called them all before they happened, but it was still surprising to see everything played out. Again, I very much enjoyed how the plot worked here.
Another thing I liked was (for once) seeing Jane confident and constantly teasing her sister over Darcy. That was refreshing and nice to read.
I would definitely read this story again and again!!
