This book is bordering on awful. The author has decent storylines, but she it too caught up in writing by thesaurus. Might have been entertaining if she didn't try to make it more than it is. My husband, who is a wordsmith and known for his verbose stories did not even know what some of the words the author used meant and some where used improperly in his opinion. Spend your money elsewhere unless you are really in need of any Jane fix.. well, then I would suggest reading Pride and Prejudice for the 100th time and forego this book!

    Witness Lizzy slowley turning into her mother!

    I agree that I am disappointed with this second installment but there is just enough entertainment in 'Darcy and Elizabeth' to prevent me from tossing it into the fire before getting through the first 100 pages (where Liz confesses to herself that she is behaving like a 'jealous and possibibly demented harpy'). Unlike Lizzy, I did not for a moment expect Darcy to take a more amiable mistress. He maintains his love dignity in spite of her mistrust(s). I predict that by the 3rd installment of this series, Lizzy will be presented 'ala Mrs. Bennett, her mother who complains constantly of how her nerves are being vexed. And I also predice that by the 3rd or 4th installment of this series Lizzy will be screaming at Darcy and the children the way her mother Mrs. Bennett always has, declairing to her family how they don't know SHE suffers. 'Oh, You don't know how I suffer!' (lol) And Mr. Darcy will still not take a mistress because that's not Darcy's thing. Instead, for the sake of peace Mr. Darcy will more and more retreat to his library alone when not riding Pemberley grounds alone. There are some good parts worth reading that don't involve Lizzy's overbearing egocentricity and Darcy's patience and long-suffering. Chapter 35 ('hoodwinked and but not hornswallowed') is one of my many favorite chapters. It's about Fitzwilliam and Georgiana. I also enjoyed reading Anne de Bourgh's back-story, among other. I say that you Judge For Yourself. But don't expect anything of the authentic P&P.

    a jumbled mess

    the first installment of this book Mr. Darcy takes a wife was semi captivating but when i picked up Days and nights at Pemperly it was just one jumbled mess they retraced what they said in the first book and conterdicted them selves many times but if you are looking for a book with many bawdy sceans in it this is the book for you but you must not be to modest or when you read it you will be blushing all the way through the end

    i second that motion

    i agree 100% with what the first review posted said. i liked Berdoll's first book because it was full of action and purpose. this book is a re-statement. there is little to no diologue and it describes nothing over and over again. perhaps if the author had taken her last 100 pages and worked from that and made that a book, then it would be ok, but i was totally disappointed by Elizabeth's characterization. she seems like a stupid Bennet instead of a capable woman worthy of the Darcy name. gosh, i can't believe i'm agreeing with Lady Catherine. there was more about other characters than the title characters themselves. and sorry, too many Wickim offspring and random poor people loosely invented from previous characters. they all get so confusing, you can't tell one apart from the other. my advice, read the first, enjoy and then employ your time reading something better, doing something productive, watching TV, exercising, or doing charity work.
