When Jane Got Angry Review & Giveaway

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.

  1. Hi Rita, Thank you so much for that lovely review! I’m so happy you enjoyed the book!

    • It is a lovely story Victoria! I’m happy you decided to give Jane the spotlight, I’m already wondering who’s next 🙂

      • Who’s next is a good question. I don’t have good story ideas for Kitty and I’m not sure I could write a good tale about Lydia. She gets on my nerves. Maybe Georgiana. Or I could give Col. Fitzwilliam his own book. But I need to wait for inspiration to strike! In the meantime, I have a lot of D&E stories that are clambering to be written.

    I like the idea of a Jane who is more assertive and a Bingley with backbone. Sounds like a fun read!

    Yes, it is time that Jane stands up for herself and I can’t wait for Caroline to get her comeuppance.
    I do prefer Darcy and Elizabeth stories but as they do appear in this I am definitely tempted.
    Thanks for your review Rita and to Victoria for the giveaway.

    At last, Jane! I have always wanted you to get angry and show some backbone to Bingley (and even more so to Caroline!).

    Jane and Bingley have generally been ehhh characters for me because of their lack of backbone. I am looking forward to reading how Victoria changes my perception. See is a talented author, so I am certain to enjoy this story. Congratulations, Victoria and thank you, Rita for sharing.

    I a m looking forward to Jane getting angry instead of being so obliviously forgiving. A very different Jane, or is she just pushed too far…we all have a limit. Thank you for the generous give away.

  20. I like the premise of this story as it solely on Jane and Bingley. I think this is quite unique as JAFF writers tend to focus on Darcy and Elizabeth. Thanks for the giveaway, Victoria.
