Book Blurb: “Mr. Darcy, I am eager to hear your explanation for the fact that quite a few people believe we are engaged.”

It starts with a bit of well-meant advice. Colonel Fitzwilliam suggests to his cousin Darcy that, before he proposes to Elizabeth Bennet in Kent, perhaps he ought to discuss his plans with their families first.

What neither man could have predicted however was that Lord Matlock would write the news to his sister, or that Viscount Saye would overhear and tell his friends, or that his friends might slip a little and let their friends know as well. The news spreads just as quickly through Hertfordshire once Mrs. Bennet opens the express Mr. Bennet receives from Mr. Darcy, and in a matter of days, it seems like everyone knows that Mr. Darcy has proposed marriage to Elizabeth Bennet.

Everyone, that is, except Elizabeth herself.

Her refusal is quick and definite—until matters of reputation, hers as well as Jane’s, are considered. Then Mr. Darcy makes another offer: summer at Pemberley so that Jane can be reunited with Mr. Bingley and so that he can prove to Elizabeth he is not what she thinks of him. Falling in love with him is naturally impossible…but once she knows the man he truly is, will she be able to help herself?

My Review: I went into this novel not really knowing a whole lot about it but excited to read it as Amy D'Orazio is quickly becoming one of my go-to JAFF authors. I really enjoyed this book but at times it just seemed like the book was being drawn out. It seems whatever could go wrong went wrong for our couple. I did love that Jane realized that she shouldn't be with a Bingley, who started hanging out with the wrong sort of people and turned into somebody I didn't like.

I do recommend reading this book if you love seeing our dear couple overcome obstacles and Jane end up with somebody other than Bingley. I'm excited to see what Amy D'Orazio comes out with next.
