Endeavor at Civility: A Variation of Pride and Prejudice
Endeavor at Civility: A Variation of Pride and Prejudice
Price: £1.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Very polite, 4 Feb. 2016
Instead of drama and confrontation, politeness and discussion are the responses to a polite proposal. With only three obstacles to get round, this book doesn't have a huge plot, but is quiet enjoyable, especially what happens with Lydia. A Worthwhile read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Far too short, 3 Feb. 2016
I read this in 3 minutes. Got an OK idea for a plot, but very little development. Worth getting as part of Kindle Unlimited if you want a very quick read, but not worth buying.

1.0 out of 5 stars ???, 31 Jan. 2016
I have no idea why this book was written. It's as if someone got hold of the names in P&P, and changed everything. I don't know what century we are in - presumably not 1812, as there is talk of Torquay and the South of France - but basically, I just don't get it. It's a short read, but too out there to make much sense, at least first time through.

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't really like it, 31 Jan. 2016
This review is from: One More Chance (Kindle Edition)
It's a shame. I think my initial dislike was from Darcy's behaviour to Elizabeth while at Rosings. That is certainly not the Mr Darcy I relate to. However, the whole plot, while nicely written, is not believable for me, and I won't be re-reading this book again. Nice idea including Darcy's diary though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bizarre, 30 Jan. 2016
Have a read of the preview - the entire book is like it. Great soliloquies about absolutely nothing. The detail of a love sick man, who apparently still does not like Meryton, even though it is staged near the end of the main work, and I thought he would have improved since the previous year.

Basically, if you like the preview, you'll like the book. Don't expect much in the way of plot though, apart from onions.


Accusing Elizabeth: A Pride & Prejudice Variation
Accusing Elizabeth: A Pride & Prejudice Variation
Price: £2.80

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite a who dunnit, 30 Jan. 2016
When some jewels go missing in Rosings, there are quite a few suspects, with a few of the regulars having more reasons than usual to be suspected. These changes are for the mystery, rather than making sense organically, but they do help the number of suspects grow.

Overall, nicely written, not overlong, and a good read - but now I know who did it, it's re-readability is probably limited.


Secrets Revealed

3.0 out of 5 stars Too rambling for my taste, 28 Jan. 2016
This review is from: Secrets Revealed (Kindle Edition)
Firstly, this is a very different take on P&P. If you read the free preview, you will see that Mr Collins is a nice guy, and Miss Bingley is already engaged. And this story is not about Elizabeth and Mr Darcy getting together.

Instead, the author takes us down a world of deceit and lies, with a complex interactions of circumstances, which at times are barely belieable.

The main problem with this book is the rambling nature of it. After half the book, I was flicking through the pages, looking for highlights. I think it could be significantly curtailed without the plot being harmed. It is not a book I will be coming back to.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amusing variation, 17 Jan. 2016
With Rosings in the balance, it's down to Elizabeth to sort things out. There's not as much interaction between Darcy and Lizzy as I would like, but it's nice to see the women take charge of such a house. The variant on Wickham is interesting, and overall it is very well written, with a good plot. Recommend.


A Pemberley Christmas: Darcy and Elizabeth What If? #11
A Pemberley Christmas: Darcy and Elizabeth What If? #11
Price: £0.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Happy ever after, 13 Jan. 2016
If you read the preview, you will see that the volume starts very gloomily, and (unlike the gloominess of volume 5, for instance) didn't like it.

However, there is a happy ever after, for more than the obvious people, and so it is an in lifting story.

This is good, especially if you have read her other books. If not, I would recommend starting with the second collection, which encompasses stories 4-6.

To Forget:Darcy's London Christmas: Pride and Prejudice continuation; Sweet Tea Short Story
Price: £0.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but ending needs work, 13 Jan. 2016
This fills in a bit of the gap after Darcy left Netherfield in November. I like the story-yelling context, but the ending of Darcy in London is not consistent with the original story. A nice, quick read.
