Diversity is clearly one of Victoria Kincaid’s characteristics that I cherish the most and why I respect and love her work so much. We never know what type of book to expect when she has a new release coming up and her latest was definitely a surprise for me. After When Mary Met the Colonel, which is my favourite secondary character novel, Ms Kincaid decided to venture once more in a secondary character story, but this time she choose sweet Jane as the main character. We don’t see a lot of variations solely based on Jane and Bingley’s love story, so if Jane is your favourite sister, you cannot miss this book.
On this story Jane travels to London after Mr. Bingley’s party leaves Netherfield, but instead of quietly waiting for something to happen she gets angry with Miss Bingley’s attitude, and when Jane gets angry good things happen 🙂
This is short but sweet novella that explores what would happen if Jane took a more active part in the pursuit of Mr. Bingley, and I really enjoyed seeing how her actions have repercussions in other people’s attitudes. Jane has more influence and power then some of us give her credit for and Victoria Kincaid did a wonderful job at exploring that. In this book we see an angry Jane who doesn’t quite know how to react to that new feeling, and consequently behaves in a surprising manner that changes the entire course of the story.
Mr. Bingley’s character was exactly as we know him to be, but he surprised me with how he handled Caroline’s meddling. He grew a backbone and stood up for his girl in the most exciting way! He was very smart and that made me love him a little bit more (I’m generally not a huge Bingley fan).
I loved the ending and the small appearance that both Mr Darcy and Elizabeth make in this story. They made it unique and funny and I couldn’t think of a better way to end this book.
I recommend When Jane Got Angry to all romance lovers who like sweet stories, but especially to JAFF readers who want to read a different and unique story. Darcy and Elizabeth make small appearances so if you only like to read books where they are the center of the story, this may not be for you. Even so, I usually prefer books where they are the main characters and I really enjoyed this one, so I would still recommend giving it a try. Jane and Bingley’s romance will captivate you.
