I was, however, frequently stunned to see so many basic grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors. It didn't make sense, because the plot and vocabulary suggest that Ms. Roberts is a mature writer and experienced reader. The errors were either careless or elementary but should have been resolved in grammar-school: Plurals are never produced with apostrophes (i.e., the Bennets, not "Bennet's") and possession is not indicated by adding "s" or "-ies" (i.e. His Majesty's Army, not "Majesties"; the lady's coat, not "the ladies coat"). In addition to these strange problems with plurals and possession, the dialogue was littered with very strange question-mark usage, placing them where they don't belong (i.e. "Sometimes, Charles couldn't help but wondered [sic] why Darcy had chosen to befriend the son of a merchant such as him? [sic]"; "It seems I bring out the worse [sic] in you, Miss Bennet? [sic]" — these sentences are statements.) The aforementioned examples also reveal some careless spelling or typographical errors (i.e. one brings out the worst in someone, not the "worse"; "annunciating" [not a word] vs. "enunciating") or near-misses (i.e. "then" instead of "than"; "doe eyes" [noun] instead of "doe-eyed" [adjective]).
I know it's hard to see our own errors, but these are so fundamental that if they couldn't be caught by the author, then they should at least have been caught by an editor before going to print.
But, let's face it, do we read these books to see how Caroline or Lydia/Wickham or anyone else is doing? I certainly don't. I'm interested in the Darcy/Lizzy relationship and all other peripheral action and characters are there to make a contribution now and again.
In this book, I loved how ODC's relationship progressed. I loved how both of them were portrayed. I didn't mind a little more pre-wedding hanky panky than usual. Their relationship was well developed, loving, and believable. That's what I came for, and that's what I got.
