Summary

‘Tis the season to be jolly, and Mr. Darcy and his sister have been invited to Netherfield for Christmas with Bingley’s business associate and the Bennets of Longbourn. There is no comfort or joy for this taciturn man when he discovers the sparkling Elizabeth Bennet finds him proud and arrogant. His only choice is to win her heart, but is it too late to change her opinion of him? 

Elizabeth Bennet is dismayed when she discovers the holiday guests of Netherfield include Mr. Darcy. How will she remain in the spirit of Christmas when faced with such a disagreeable man? Yet, with the kindness and attention he displays to her two young cousins, and the handsome Mr. Wickham’s character beginning to unravel, can she really trust in first impressions? Join the residents of Meryton as the spirit of the holidays may turn Mr. Darcy into "An Unexpected Merry Gentleman" after all.

Love her variations!

If I could change one thing, I would make this a full book instead of a novella. This was sweet, slightly predictable, but also had a few different twists I very much appreciated. Schroeder writes P&P variations so well. I cannot wait for the next!

Great story

I love this novela! As a huge fan of pride and prejudice this story was really cute and very interesting!! Very realistic and I’m glad that wickham was out in jail instead of ending up with Lydia. Or any other girl.

Very good. Unfortunately

Unfortunately, if you compare it with the written text, there are two sections missing from the end of chapter five. The events are referred to in the last scene of the story (the proposal scene!) so the fact that they're missing is serious.

Delectable Romantic Yarn

You will find yourself present, and become quickly engrossed in the festive happenings as beloved characters from Pride and Prejudice assemble at Netherfield Park for Christmas.

The reader's impeccable English accent and numerous voices delightfully convey this delectable romantic yarn filled with discovery. It gave me gooseflesh!

Fun Christmas Novella

This is the fourth Pride and Prejudice book I have read by Anngela Schroeder and I have loved every one of them! Although I prefer the longer versions of Anngela Schroeder’s Pride and Prejudice variations, Anngela did a wonderful job with this shorter novella. It still captured the magic between Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett. It was fun to get to know some of the other characters better as well. I would definitely recommend reading this delightful story!

Sweet story w/ just enough angst. Excellent Reading

I always enjoy narrator Elizabeth Grace’s warm Darcy. This is a sweet story all of the way around.
