    3.5 stars rounded up to 4 stars: this book was a loan from a friend. Jane and Elizabeth have been sent to London to have a season and find husbands. Mr. Bennet is ill and his health forces the family to plan for the future. If Jane and/or Elizabeth marry well the hedgerows may fade as a worry. Darcy meets Elizabeth at Almack's. There is not a lot of angst in this story but rather Darcy again questioning Elizabeth's suitability mainly due to her family.

Mr. Bennet is ill and his health forces the family to plan for the future. If Jane and/or Elizabeth marry well the hedgerows may fade as a worry. Darcy meets Elizabeth at Almack's. There is not a lot of angst in this story but rather Darcy again questioning Elizabeth's suitability mainly due to her family. He has been driven to seek a wife as Georgiana has a mysterious debilitating illness which has left her vulnerable to others, such as her one maid. Thus Darcy wants a wife; one who can protect and befriend Georgiana. Elizabeth has proven herself in friendship to Georgiana and now Darcy wrestles with the question of why she didn't relate to him how truly awful her mother and younger sisters are...when he seeks out Mr. Bennet to ask for E.'s hand in marriage. The main premise is whether a marriage of convenience can or will become anything more than that. Even when the marriage is consummated no words of affection pass between Elizabeth and Darcy. So will this arrangement last? Will love grow? The final test: Darcy is off to London on business and three separate parties show up at Pemberley unannounced. Can Elizabeth manage alone to fulfill this final test of her suitability as the mistress of Pemberley? This was a pleasant read but I would have liked to have read more angst in the tale. There is an epilogue and there are no MA scenes.

    Good writing, but left wanting Reviewed in Canada on June 2, 2019 I did enjoy this book. The author shows a talent in writing, and while this book started out well, I felt something lacking in it. There wasn’t enough dialogue for me. I would have expected that once ODC married. The ending is abrupt and leaves the reader wondering if it’s a girl or a boy. I felt the author got tired of wring and just ended it.

    Marriage of convenience story Seems there have been many marriage of convenience stories lately. The only great drama in the story is will Lizzy give a try at making the marriage more pleasant than she thinks it will be. She is stubborn but Aunt Gardiner tries to council Lizzy into giving the marriage a chance. No one but Jane and Georgiana seem to like the idea of the marriage so most of the angst is about who, including Lizzy, will become accepting of the new Mrs. Darcy.

    What and utterly delightful read, I absolutely loved it! Quiet, in the sense that there are no angst but plenty of warmth, romance, suspense and excitement to captivate and enthrall you. Especially appreciated that the story did not trail off track with uninteresting side stories, no it kept on the main track from start to finish which I found very refreshing. Loved ODC in this story. Elizabeth with her wit and although Darcy was exceedingly sosialy awkward, he was adorable. Loved the character dev What and utterly delightful read, I absolutely loved it! Quiet, in the sense that there are no angst but plenty of warmth, romance, suspense and excitement to captivate and enthrall you. Especially appreciated that the story did not trail off track with uninteresting side stories, no it kept on the main track from start to finish which I found very refreshing. Loved ODC in this story. Elizabeth with her wit and although Darcy was exceedingly sosialy awkward, he was adorable. Loved the character development and the way their relationship developed. It was a joy to read. Mr Bennet is suffering from a lingering cough. Jane and Elizabeth are shipped off to the Gardiner's for the season in hope of attracting suitable husbands, in case their father does not recover. Suitably outfitted, they enter the fray of the marriage mart at Almacks. Elizabeth is intrigued by the stoic Mr Darcy but he does not seem to want the same from a marriage that she wants. He on the other hand, is in search for a marriage of convenience to secure his ailing sister companionship and a mistress to his estate. Impressed by Elizabeth's wit, intelligence and compassion they enter into a courtship with hidden agendas and misconception. They seem to be their own worst enemy and their well developed ability to conceal their own emotions are not helping. There are no ridiculous misunderstandings or big disagreements though. It's more of a thoughtful and discerning approach that will dissolve their differences. Absolutely beautifully written, I am bewitched... Heartily recommend this book!!!

    I truly enjoyed reading this book. Elizabeth and Jane had a season in London with the Gardiner, but it's not what you think. Darcy is preoccupied with Georgiana's health and having time to find someone to help him take care of her. There is no Wickham or Mr Collin in this story,but there was enough villains though. Lady Catherine and Lord Matlock were horrible. The acts of Caroline Bingley and Mrs Hurst, I applaud the writer for these scenes, it took guts to write.

    Avid Reader This was one of my favorite Darcy s.😊 Although he was somewhat harsh with Elizabeth after he proposed and met her mother and younger sisters, he didn't make hasty decisions. Lady Catherine was truly over the top until Darcy crashed her balloon. Mr. & Mrs. Gardiner were gems. In spite of their own financial struggles, they made sure that Jane and Elizabeth were turned out in style. I also enjoyed the reference to the Crawford's and Mansfield Park. Georgina developed spunk and took Caro Avid Reader This was one of my favorite Darcy s.😊 Although he was somewhat harsh with Elizabeth after he proposed and met her mother and younger sisters, he didn't make hasty decisions.

Georgina developed spunk and took Caroline Bingley down several notches. An enjoyable read.

    Ok The book is well written. The story is cute and I like the different take on a beloved classic. But the story and plot loses what is so great about pride and prejudice. That Darcy loves Elizabeth so much he has to marry her no matter what.

    Pleasant read Easy reading but not enough book to warrant the cost. The characters could have been expanded more to better become the characters loved in the original. Not worth the expense

    Bland dialogue, wooden characters, and a clutter of superfluous scenes. Dry; Boring. Couldn’t get further than 10 percent in.
