I confess that when I bought this book my expectations were not very high. I’ve read dozens of P&P variations and the last ones were always a disappointment, but I was obviously unaware of the authors talent, or my expectations would have been very high indeed.
When I started reading Mr. Darcy’s Noble Connections I could not believe it! I was finally reading something that was not only good, but marvelous! I was afraid the story would disappoint me as I continued reading, but it never did! In fact, everything about the book was close to perfection!
This variation takes us to a completely different scenario then P&P. Darcy and Elizabeth meet after the Hunsford proposal at Bentham Park, a house belonging to a mutual acquaintance, and it was refreshing to see a very different scenario with so many new interesting characters. These were excelente additions and the interactions between all characters were definitely a plus of the book.
Darcy and Elizabeth remain faithful to their own personalities and the interactions between them are absolutely wonderful. The love story in this book is amazing, it shows a connection and understanding between them that is very touching and romantic. Above everything the love story is touching and interesting without ever loosing propriety, which is always a plus for me. There is another love story in the book that keep me interested and that was also another positive point in the book.
I definitely recommend this to any P&P fan! Abigail Reynolds is one of the best JAFF authors, I’ve read and this book is a must read!
