My dislikes were just how much I couldn't respect Mr. Darcy in this book. I couldn't imagine him being forgiven for the way he treated Elizabeth, or her allowing it to go so far in the first place. Elizabeth Bennett is no man's doormat. Then, of course, there is Granville. He was charming and so far superior to Darcy in person, but his actions behind Elizabeth's back had a creep factor that I couldn't ignore. I have to say, though, that the ending felt quite appropriate for the world of Jane Austen. Grand gestures, and emotions that had been hidden previously. It was very fitting, even if I didn't overly approve.
Patrick was a surprising character. Placed as a shy and odd love interest for Mary, he seemed a little underwhelming at first. Through the story, however, he grew on me, and evolved so much as a character that I couldn't help but love him. Their romance was one I would have really loved to have read an entire book about.
Overall, this was a captivating take on the characters of Pride and Prejudice, and fitting modern day sequel that ended up capturing my attention. It's definitely a 4 star read, but I think if it had been Mary and Patrick's story, it would have been 5. - GMB
The characters and their motives were well-developed and deeply nuanced. Even the "villain" of the piece was ultimately likable and charming, so that even if you never really doubt that Elizabeth and Darcy will end up together, you still have a niggling little hope that Granville might win the day, just because he's so darn charming.
This was a really fun rom-com, tightly written, fast-paced, and a great joy for Austen fan-fiction readers or newbies to the genre alike. I can't wait to read more from Jayne Matthews, hopefully very soon!
