Summary

With his young sister Georgiana's reticence a constant reminder that his onetime friend, George Wickham, should not be trusted, Darcy decides a trip to rural Hertfordshire is in order, for both him and Georgiana. Darcy believes the people there are of so little consequence, Georgiana will know no fear in interacting with them. He soon learns he's wrong about both his sister and Hertfordshire, but not about Wickham.

Even bearing the brunt of Mr. Darcy's insult doesn't soften Elizabeth to her wife-hunting cousin, Mr. Collins, and her first reaction is to disdain both men. As the two join forces against Meryton's newest militia member, the charming Mr. Wickham, Elizabeth comes to see a different side to Mr. Darcy and Mr. Collins. Their presence in Hertfordshire, along with Mr. Darcy's other companions, will forever alter the lives of Elizabeth and those she cares for most.

Decent

This book was good, but not great. I have enjoyed many books from this author duo and felt this wasn't their best. The story wasn't bad, but I can't say I will be eager to go to it a second time. I just felt the characters were not quite right and things were a bit too far fetched. I also have really really really dislike when Colonel Fitzwilliam gets paired with any of the youngest three Bennet sisters or Charlotte Lucas. Always a detractor for me.

Well written

This story begins a few years before canon. It starts with Darcy and Colonel Fitzwilliam visiting Rosings. What happens there affects happenings in Hertfordshire. I like the new characters I met in this story. I highly recommend this book to a Jane Austen fan fiction lover.
