Creative without silliness. Quite different, could have gone on after the wedding!
This is the first Jane Grix novella that I have read. This is the what if scenario....what if Fitzwilliam Darcy had an exact twin who was twenty minutes younger than him? While Fitzwilliam is the quiet, stuck up Darcy that we all know and love....Horatio is the fun loving, loves women kind of guy. Until Horatio parties too much and becomes deeply in debt then things begin to change for him. I liked the premise of this story but somewhere along the way I wanted a little more. Horatio was not in this story enough. At least not until the very end. And time travels quickly when you only have about 110 pages to get your story done. I wanted more of the brothers. And there was hardly any Elizabeth and Horatio interaction .... so I wished for more of that. There is a fun couple of scenes between Horatio, Caroline and one of Elizabeth's sisters that I really enjoyed! It was written very well. But overall I was disappointed. I felt that this was a good premise, it was written well but I still wanted more. This could easily be a longer story. Why not give this one a try Ms. Grix? Make this one longer? I would read it! I would recommend this novella if you like novellas.
