Book Blurb: In the original Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth Bennet’s friend, Charlotte Lucas marries the silly and obsequious clergyman, Mr. Collins. But what if fate—and love—intervened?

Desperate to escape her parents’ constant criticism, Charlotte has accepted a proposal from Mr. Collins despite recognizing his stupid and selfish nature. But when a mysterious man from her past visits Meryton for the Christmas season, he arouses long-buried feelings and causes her to doubt her decision.

James Sinclair’s mistakes cost him a chance with Charlotte three years ago, and he is devastated to find her engaged to another man. Honor demands that he step aside, but his heart will not allow him to leave Meryton. Their mutual attraction deepens; however, breaking an engagement is not a simple matter and scandal looms. If they are to be happy, Charlotte and James must contend with her parents’ opposition, Lady Catherine’s nastiness, and dangerous figures from James’s past.

Charlotte had forsworn romance years ago; is it possible for her to become romantic again?

My Review: So I'm not a big fan of any of the secondary characters in Pride and Prejudice but when I read the blurb for this book I admit I was intrigued enough to give it a go. Plus you can almost never go wrong reading a Victoria Kincaid novel. I have to say I loved James as a suitor for Charlotte. He is a much better match for her than Mr. Collins. I really wish that Charlotte had had more faith in James when they were together in Bath but then we wouldn't have this book.

I have to say I really enjoyed this book and hopefully, we'll get another book telling Darcy and Lizzy's story since it was teased at the end of the novel. I'll be looking for it too.

Rating: 4½ stars out of 5
