REVIEW: A Ball For Lady Catherine by Elizabeth Goodrich

Book Blurb: Mr. Darcy does not believe in fate, but a fake courtship with Miss Elizabeth Bennet may just change his mind. 

He had escaped to London, then Pemberley, in an attempt to forget her stinging rejection of his proposal. But now, he must conspire with Elizabeth to fulfill his cousin Anne's dream of throwing her mother a surprise birthday ball - a surprise that Lady Catherine will surely hate. To make matters worse, Anne has already invited one of Lady Catherine's former suitors, a traitor more in love with wealth than the woman.

Elizabeth Bennet is at Rosings Park to assist her friend Anne in keeping the ball a secret from her mother but is asked to pay a steep price when Anne requests that Mr. Darcy escort her about Hunsford under the guise that they are courting. Can she set aside her disdain long enough to pull it off, or will her dislike for Mr. Darcy ruin the whole thing? Can he convince her that he is a changed man, and persuade her to give him a second chance?

My Review: This is a very short story about Anne throwing a surprise birthday party for Lady Catherine and the hijinks that ensue during the course of the planning period. I have to admit I really enjoyed this story. I would have enjoyed reading more about Darcy's and Lizzy's romance and Lady Catherine's. I really recommend this story if you are looking for a fast read with a sweet and satisfying romance.

Rating: ★★★★☆
