REVIEW: No Cause to Repine by Rose Fairbanks

Received an advanced copy for an honest review.

Book Blurb:When a simple accident is misinterpreted and threatens Elizabeth Bennet's reputation, her fate seems sealed as Fitzwilliam Darcy's wife. While the bride is resigned, the gentleman could hardly be happier until betrayals and schemes threaten to entirely take the matter out of their hands. Overcoming the plots before them will take all the patience, perseverance and collaboration they can muster, but a partnership requires truth. Self-discovery and trust await Jane Austen's most beloved and willfully blind couple as they attempt to master their own destiny in life and love.

The Review: This book starts off with Darcy visiting Elizabeth at the Hunsford Parsonage with the other ladies gone from the house. They talk for a few minutes and when Darcy goes to leave he trips over the rug and falls into her lap. Guess who shows up at that moment? If you guessed the Collinses and Maria Lucas you would be right. Mr Collins accuses Elizabeth of imposing herself on Darcy and the fun begins. Throughout the book you have a irate Lady Catherine trying her best to break the engagement between the two. At one point she has Mr Collins help her. Wickham is also in her employ and is trying to break them up as well. But towards the end of the book he is just trying to seduce Lydia into an elopement so he can collect more money off Darcy.

I have to say I enjoyed this book. Yeah the book did start slow at first but then all these events happen. I have to say I couldn't put the book down. I could have finished it sooner but real life takes over sometimes and you have to stop what you're doing to attend to it. I would recommend this book to anybody who enjoys a good romance or anybody who loves a good JAFF book. 

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
