5.0 out of 5 stars Noble Indeed!, 7 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mr. Darcy's Noble Connections: A Pride & Prejudice Variations (The Pemberley Variations Book 10) (Kindle Edition)
If there's one thing that's certain in life, it's that you will enjoy a book written by Abigail Reynolds, and Mr Darcy's Noble Connections is no exception.

Set in Yorkshire, such is the skill with which Ms Reynolds wields her pen that the landscape and settings leave a powerful impression, so much so that they almost become another `character'!

The story begins with Elizabeth arriving at the majestic Bentham Park at the request of an old friend, Lady Eleanor Carlisle, who is being forced to marry against her inclination and, what is more, has lost her heart to the owner of a neighbouring estate, who, though raised and educated as a gentleman, would not be considered worthy of Eleanor by her family due to his wealth emanating from his father's background in trade.

Darcy, meanwhile, who has connections to Lady Eleanor's family, has come to stay with his friend from university - the very same gentleman with whom Eleanor is in love. It is hoped that Darcy will be able to help his friend with an entrée into Bentham Park.

Soon, a whole cast of characters - skilfully drawn by Ms Reynolds - has arrived at Bentham, bent on pleasure and socialising at this elegant house party gathering.

What's not to like? With plenty of sparring, some swoon-worthy waltzing, an exiled heir to the Estate, a second son bent on ruining Elizabeth's reputation and an embittered but jealous Mr Darcy, the scene is set for yet another fantastic story about two of literature's favourite characters.

Well-written with fully rounded, believable new characters, blending seamlessly with those we know so well, this is an excellent read, and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys Pride & Prejudice inspired stories.
