A Noteworthy Courtshipby Laura Sanchez
What if the Netherfield party had not left Hertfordshire immediately following the Netherfield Ball, and what if Mr. Darcy in
A Noteworthy Courtship is an Austen inspired tale, where the familiar characters of Pride and Prejudice, along with a few new ones, discover what would have happened if the storyline had strayed from the plot of Jane Austen's novel.
What if the Netherfield party had not left Hertfordshire immediately following the Netherfield Ball, and what if Mr. Darcy in particular had given himself inducement to remain? Comical entanglements and exploits thicken the familiar plot as various characters break their canon form. Two are repeatedly drawn to the bookshop in Meryton with little explanation, and a gentleman from Kent is not so easily dissuaded as he might otherwise have been. Mr. and Mrs. Bennet are as lackadaisical and troublesome as ever, and Mr. Bingley and Miss Jane Bennet are left to their own inclination without the untimely interference of their friends. A new set of characters allow the escapades to continue before finally a resolution can be reached, with much the same happily ever after as Jane Austen intended.
Adapted in part from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and inspired by the film You've Got Mail.

I enjoyed the story line. It was different but the results were the same. A love story. I would read this again and again. Darcy and Elizabeth are meant to be together no matter. I am impressed with Laura Sanchez.
This is a very well written and interesting twist to the original story. I liked the author's premise ( what if the Bingleys and Mr. Darcy never left Netherfield ) and enjoyed how she discribed the outcome. P & P lovers and purists should really like this book!
