Product Description

About the Author

Sarah Johnson is a freelance writer and longtime lover of the written word. Her love of the classics began early, with Jane Austen becoming a clear favorite by her early teen years. When the world of fan fiction was introduced to her, she was happy to find so many wonderful stories based on the dearly loved characters. It was a few years before a new writers challenge, posted at one of the Jane Austen Fan Fiction forums, drew her to put pen to paper and begin creating the stories that have always unfolded in her mind. What began as a picture has become a muse that will not stop forming ideas for more stories. After fifteen years of military life, she and her husband, along with their six children, have now settled in Texas, where she continues to write of an era gone by and of characters that will forever live in the hearts of Jane Austen’s admirers.

This was a really fun little story which I would sum up as short and sweet!

It begins around the time when Jane is invited to dine at Netherfield Park. Due to the threat of snow and Mrs Bennet's instance that Jane still go to her dinner at Netherfield, Lizzy decides to accompany her sister. And, unbeknownst to them, Lydia decides to follow them as well! Consequently, when the snow begins to fall they must seek shelter in a nearby disused cottage. As panic ensues back at Longbourn, a note is sent to enquire whether the Bennet daughters made it to Netherfield, and upon hearing that they did not, Darcy and Bingley rush to the rescue to try and find them! However, this means that once they do find them they must also join the ladies in the cottage as the weather takes a turn for the worst!

The premise of the story of having Lizzy, Jane, Lydia, Darcy and Bingley getting snowed into a small cottage together was rather fun! The 5 of them was a very interesting mix and made for some... interesting scenes and conversations!

One of the real problems with novellas is that due to the length, the story often feels rushed or unrealistic, particularly when it comes to Darcy and Lizzy who often need to go from Lizzy really not liking Darcy to loving him in a very few pages! This problem was tackled well in this book because of where the story picks up; by this point Lizzy is not completely set against Darcy as 1. Wickham hasn't come on the scene to blacken his name and 2. The full issue around Jane and Bingley hasn't reached its peak as Bingley hasn't been persuaded to leave the neighbourhood.

A short but truly delightful story of love and weather. This story showed Darcy to be a true romantic even impulsive when with Elizabeth.

This problem was tackled well in this book because of where the story picks up; by this point Lizzy is not completely set against Darcy as 1. Wickham hasn't come on the scene to blacken his name and 2. The full issue around Jane and Bingley hasn't reached its peak as Bingley hasn't been persuaded to leave the neighbourhood. Therefore, while Lizzy isn't a friend of Darcy's at the beginning of this tale, it is much easier for her opinion to change when they are forced to get to know each other more, as situations arise during their forced time together which reveal certain aspects to Darcy's personality that Lizzy had perhaps overlooked or ignored before. These 'situations' which arise I don't want to ruin for you, but the use of games (and don't let 'kissing' worry you - it's nothing very scandalous!) as a distraction while they wait for the weather to improve comes in very handy for many different reasons and many different people!

The time in the cottage is very important for Lizzy and Darcy's relationship as Lizzy learns that perhaps her initial opinion of Darcy wasn't quite correct and that maybe she was being too harsh on him. Once the weather is better and they get back to Netherfield, Darcy and Lizzy begin to quickly become more than friends and it is very cute to see their relationship change! Darcy is unbelievably cute in this story - but in a good way! We see his teasing and also his more forward (and persuasive!) side which was fun. And as the last line of the novella states, "who would have thought that snow storms and kissing games could bring two people such as us together!"

Jane was sweet, as always, in this book but she had a slightly less 'looking through rose-coloured glasses' and a more realistic view on the world, which made a change. Her and Lizzy were sweet in this tale! Bingley is also very sweet and the forced confinement together proves to be very beneficial for the couple!

We mustn't forget that Lydia also was snowed in with them! Due to certain topics of conversation which arise we begin to see a different Lydia and the whole experience ends up having a positive effect and influence on her which was lovely! I will let you read it to see exactly how!

Caroline Bingley still had to make her appearance and she was just as annoying as she should be, and very fun to laugh at!

This really was a light-hearted, cute and fun read! Short and sweet, as I said. I enjoyed it! Perfect if you need a break or 'pick me up' during the day or as an uplifting read before bed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, short read 10 Aug. 2014
By KindleLover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I almost passed on this one because I thought it has a silly title and I didn't like the cover.
It ended up being an enjoyable, light read to help pass a rainy afternoon. I like that it was almost angst free with the only villain being Caroline. Darcy and Lizzy reached an agreement rather quickly and Lydia acted a little more grown up in that she was willing to listen. She seemed to have a bit more sense than usual. Sometimes it's nice to have a story without so much suspense for a change.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can you imagine forced confinement with Lydia? For two nights? 15 Jan. 2016
By S. L. Majczan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
4.5 stars

I was looking for something short to read and having bought 4 of this author's book on sale just yesterday, decided to choose one of hers. Kissing games - now are we going to step outside the boundaries of propriety? I was curious to read if this was stretched beyond acceptable variations for me (and others) in the JAFF community.

I have to say that this author did an exemplary job here and created a wonderfully sweet rendition. If you are a stickler about adhering to canon then this is not your cup of tea. As Sophia said in her review the setting here is placed in time before revelations from Wickham or even his appearance occur and the Netherfield party has not left for London. Instead the author has Elizabeth determined to accompany Jane to the neighboring estate when Caroline and Louisa invite Jane. Lydia, in this tale being the sneakiest of busy bodies, decides to follow them, hoping to hear or learn of some juicy development. But a mile before the ladies arrive at their destination Mother Nature prevents any further progress with heavy snowfall and a weakening Jane.

The events with the ladies snowed in an abandoned renter's cottage and with the two gentlemen finally locating them the next day help to forward the understanding between certain players. Not to worry, games played are innocent enough but just perfect to uncover some truths about behaviors, feelings and even truths about arrivals in Meryton. This was played out so inventively, so creatively - well done.

And as the couples finally are able to leave the cottage after being stormed in for two nights they return to Netherfield and we get some further developments which lead to our happy ending.

This is only 76 pages in the paperback version but I did not feel that it was rushed nor that it did not reach completion satisfactorily. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really fun read! 9 Aug. 2014
By Karen C Groves - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novella. Brand new plot with a Lydia and Mrs. Hurst I could like made for a fun read. Love what Mrs. Hurst did to Caroline.

Plot and length of novella worked though I would have liked a little bit more at the end.

Although I feel it is a little overpriced, I bought a copy after reading it through Kindle Unlimited because I want a copy I can keep. I did enjoy it that much. Laughed and cried because it touched my heart.
