REVIEW: Pursued by Sarah Johnson

Received a copy for an honest review.

Book Blurb: The Bennet family changed dramatically when Mr Bennet nearly lost his life. The rekindled love between him and his wife encouraged a unifying bond amongst their five daughters. Their story unfolds as each eligible young lady walks down the aisle, taking her husband’s hand and forever leaving the name of Bennet behind.

Alexander Fitzwilliam, Viscount Primrose, has had his share of difficulties in dealing with society, including near scandal that could now cause him more heartache than when the rumors first began two years ago. Why? Miss Mary Bennet. Since the day he first saw her sitting beside the road covered in mud, he has not been able to put her out of his mind, and very soon his heart as well. Despite his determination in pursuing her good opinion, his attentions are not well received. Would the coming Season in London and summer at Pemberley be any different, or would she continue to avoid any further connection?

The Review: I will admit it has taken me some time to get through the first three books of this series. I guess it's because that there hasn't been a lot of conflict with a villain so far and I do enjoy me some conflict. LOL. That aside once I started reading this book I did get into it a bit more than the other ones in the series. Mainly it's because we do actually get to see a lot more of the villains and their dumb plans. And guess what guys? We see Alex and Mary FINALLY get together. I hate that Caroline came between from the start of the series. Though it was all for nothing as she has been banished to Scarborough with Mrs. Hamilton. I like that both Jane and Elizabeth are pregnant at the same time (but Elizabeth is further along than Jane). And to make it even better Mrs. Gardiner is pregnant as well.  I will be happy when Anne and Colonel Fitzwilliam can finally be married. Hopefully that will happen in the last two books. I am eagerly waiting for the last two books so we can have the conclusion of Lady Catherine's plotting. I would recommend this book to anybody who enjoys seeing the entire Bennet get happily ever afters. 

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
