I really enjoyed this. No zombies, no vampires, no time travel (not that there's anything wrong with that), just a lovely, straight-up, manner-of-Austen story. ( )

Fitzwilliam Darcy's cousin (also named Mr.Darcy) visits England and, through machinations that make no logical or emotional sense, is "forced" into a pretend betrothal with Caroline Bingley. Presumably they end up falling in love and marrying for real, but I only got 132 pages into this before I gave up out of sheer boredom. None of the characters fit with those from [b:Pride and Prejudice|1885|Pride and Prejudice|Jane Austen|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1320399351s/1885.jpg|3060926], from a soppy and foolish Jane to an even soppier Elizabeth. Most changed of all is Caroline; the author leaves her a minor amount of pride and sarcasm, but she is otherwise transformed into a model heroine. Kind to others, bffs with Jane, only prideful because her mother emotionally abused her into it, constantly at a loss in social situations so her Mr Darcy can save her, calm and collected in a crisis, the shoulder for everyone to lean on...it's just unbelievable. If Fairview hadn't tried to connect this to Austen, it would have been a mediocre but bland Regency romance. Or, if Fairview had let Caroline remain a rather unpleasant person who nevertheless finds someone who understands and appreciates her, this could have been a very interesting Austen spin off. As it is, the book flounders and fails. ( )

This is Caroline Bingley's story. She finally finds love with another Darcy, an American cousin, named Robert. He is just as charming as Fitzwilliam but more open. He and Caroline both help each other cope and become more themselves. Another great vacation read. ( )

Did you know that Mr. Darcy had an American cousin?!

In this highly original Pride and Prejudice sequel by British author Monica Fairview, Caroline Bingley is our heroine. Caroline is sincerely broken-hearted when Mr. Darcy marries Lizzy Bennet— that is, until she meets his charming and sympathetic American cousin…

Mr. Robert Darcy is as charming as Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy is proud, and he is stunned to find the beautiful Caroline weeping at his cousin's wedding. Such depth of love, he thinks, is rare and precious. For him, it's nearly love at first sight. But these British can be so haughty and off-putting. How can he let the young lady, who was understandably mortified to be discovered in such a vulnerable moment, know how much he feels for and sympathizes with her?
