Alas, another attempt by Abigail Reynolds to write a sequel to P&P. It is a shame that much of the book is taken up with nonsensical dialogue and bosom heaving scenes. Ms. Reynolds is quite capable of imitating Austen's style and does so successfully, although, the attempts are uneven due to the subject matter of some of the scenes. The real problem with Reynold's books is that she allows her Regency heroine to sleep with, or otherwise engage in activities that were absolutely not permitted amongst the better classes at the time, although a mild form of this behavior becomes essential to the plot. This destroys the sexual tension in the book at about the half way point and the reader is reduced to perusing inane dialogue or more bosom heaving scenes for the rest of the novel. It is a a shame because she has some good plot ideas but they fall prey to the supposed necessity to write a bodice ripper instead of a good, literary work with imagination. The author misses many opportunities to fully develop her plot and subplots in deference to scenes in which Darcy and Elizabeth engage in almost sickly sweet dialogue and much groping. Please, Ms. Reynolds, leave something, anything, to the reader's imagination if we are to be writing Austen sequels and engage in plot development.

I highly recommend this book to all who like the pride and prejudice variations.

This new spin on Pride and Predjudice by Abigail Reynolds was an interesting twist although not with the depth of character and story found in her other spin offs. While the premise of the story could have been the foundation for an excellant book this seemed a little light and forced as if the writer had to produce another sequel quickly. Darcy and Elizabeth's characters were bland and the wit and dialogue between the two was lackluster. A good Saturday afternoon after the yard work read.

I loved this story but I love every book Abigail Reynods has written. I had been looking for this book and could not find. I was so glad when it was released again. As always Elizabeth and Darcy are deeply in love and passionate. This is a book I will read again and again.
