REVIEW: When Jane Got Angry by Victoria Kincaid

Book Blurb: When Mr. Bingley abruptly left Hertfordshire, Jane Bennet’s heart was broken. Since arriving in London to visit her aunt and uncle, Jane has been hoping to encounter Mr. Bingley; however, it becomes clear that his sister is keeping them apart.

But what would happen if she took matters into her own hands? Defying social convention, she sets out to alert Mr. Bingley to her presence in London, hoping to rekindle the sparks of their relationship.

Bingley is thrilled to encounter Jane and renew their acquaintance, but his sister has told him several lies about the Bennets—and his best friend, Mr. Darcy, still opposes any relationship. As Jane and Bingley sort through this web of deceit, they both find it difficult to maintain their customary equanimity.

However, they also discover that sometimes good things happen when Jane gets angry.

My Review: This novella explores the premise of what if Jane got angry enough to go after what she wants and what if what she wants is Mr. Bingley. I have to say I love that Jane grows a backbone and goes after Mr. Bingley. I read this story in one sitting and it didn't disappoint. We also get a glimpse into the relationship between Darcy and Lizzy as well.  The only problem I had with this novella was that it was too short. In my opinion, Victoria Kincaid proves yet again that she is one of the reigning queens of JAFF. Also, can I say that the cover is gorgeous?

Rating: 4½ stars out of 5
