A fine novel in the manner of Jane Austen but also endowed with its own sly charms and great humour. So good that even though I surmised the "villian's" identity before the authoress revealed it I didn't care. Just reveling in the excellent story and how carefully each character was developed made tbis a great read. I recommend the entire series.

I have really enjoyed reading this book. I'm really hoping that things do become better for Darcy and Elizabeth. That they are able to not have other problems come up between them. I'm looking forward to the next book to see if and how this can if possible come about!
