2.0 out of 5 stars Has been published as 'A Private Performance', 9 Dec. 2008
This review is from: Mr. Darcy Presents His Bride: A Sequel to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice (Paperback)
I had really looked forward to this coming out and ordered it when she first had it published.

I am afraid I did not like this book very much I felt she made Mr Darcy out to be sulky spoilt and not at all understanding to his wife.

When they go to London Lady Catherine has tried to give Lizzy a bad name amongst the ton but she is introduced to the most influencing woman of the ton and taken under her wing.

At first Darcy seems all for this then he notices that many men start to take note of Elizabeth and he becomes sulky, jealous I would have put it but she used the word sulky.

Once the season finishes they go to Netherfield for a short time and Lizzy who by this time is expecting looses her babe. What upset me was that her Darcy does not seem to have an understanding bone in his body. Not at all like the Jane Austen Darcy. As the time goes on they go back to Pemberley where Kitty stays with them.

I am afraid that I disliked some of the new characters she introduces but some were lovely. To me her Elizabeth and Darcy did not match JA characters as I just could not see them doing some of the things she has them do in this story.

It is an interesting read but not one I would have gone out of my way to buy if I wasn't such a big fan of sequels. I have read better fanfiction than this book.
