Summary

A secret alliance grows from an unwelcome olive branch...

When rumors of Jane Bennet’s impending betrothal to Mr. Collins begin spreading at the Meryton Assembly, Elizabeth Bennet vows to save her dearest sister’s happiness from being sacrificed in marriage. She finds an unlikely ally in Mr Darcy, the taciturn man whose heroics on the cricket field have made him the target for Lydia’s affections.

Overhearing a heated exchange between Elizabeth and Mr. Bennet, Darcy is stunned, not only by her devotion to her sister, but also by her defiant words to her father. An inexplicable desire to help Elizabeth draws Darcy into the match-breaking scheme, despite knowing that he should want nothing to do with a family like the Bennets.

As the new allies work together, they begin to understand and admire each other. But they must navigate a complicated web of sisters, parents, friends, cousins, aunts, and new acquaintances, all of whom seem contrary to being manipulated. A few of them may even be attempting their own manipulations and romantic schemes. Eavesdropping and jealousy abound, cricket balls go astray, and love blooms in spite of Mrs. Bennet’s mismatched matchmaking. 

This humorous Pride and Prejudice reimagining is novel-length and pays homage to the wit of Jane Austen.

Loved it!

Such a well written book. Narrator was brilliant, she sounds very much like Dawn French. Would definitely recommend it.

Engaging

A Case of Some Delicacy is an engaging story. With the entire book taking place in Hertfordshire, the is ample space to explore the characters of Elizabeth’s family, and I especially liked what was done with the three younger Bennet daughters.

The narrator was very good.

Story and narration were excellent!

This story was not like every other P&P variation. I will definitely read it again and consider it one of my favorites. It can be enjoyed by all ages and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves P&P. I liked that the whole story took place in Meryton and I loved that Mr. Darcy began interacting with Elizabeth from the start...

Disappointed

Not enough contrast in voice, hard to keep dialogue straight. Had to lower speed. Parts of story were unique, others very predictable.
