Longbourn's Unexpected Matchmaker | [Emma Hox]

Longbourn's Unexpected Matchmaker

Publisher's Summary

Would Pride and Prejudice have been different if Colonel Fitzwilliam had accompanied Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy to Netherfield?

What would happen if Mr. Darcy made friends with a mysterious member of the Meryton neighborhood who refuses an introduction but who has a close relationship with the Bennet household?

Elizabeth Bennet, the second of five daughters to Mr. Thomas Bennet has caught the attention of the rich and handsome Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy almost from the moment he laid eyes on her, but when he purposefully misinterprets her families expectation of her marrying well and slights her in a way unknown to those who have always loved Jane Austen's acclaimed Pride and Prejudice, he must leave forever or make amends. Sulking in the library he determines to leave the place and give her up, but is waylaid by a member of the Meryton neighborhood who claims an intimate acquaintance with the Bennet family and offers up advice on how to win Elizabeth's heart.

Longbourn's Unexpected Matchmaker puts a spin on Pride and Prejudice that no one would ever expect as Colonel Fitzwilliam attends Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy to Netherfield, Elizabeth Bennet is witty enough to detect the motives of Mr. Darcy's long time enemy Lieutenant Wickham and Georgiana Darcy is bold enough to defy her brother and cousin and comes to Meryton in the midst of a storm. Not to mention Caroline Bingley, Lieutenant Wickham and Lady Catherine are all working against our hero and heroine ever finding their own happily ever after.

    "one of my absolute favorites,"
    What did you love best about Longbourn's Unexpected Matchmaker?

    This book was a wonderful read. Everything you'd want it to be. I enjoyed this variation of P&P so much. Mr. Bennet as a very in charge father. Col. Fitzwilliam is fun also, he goes to Netherfield with Bingley and Darcy...what unexpected things happen while he's there? The wit and dialog explain so many things - the entail, family lineage, actions and reactions. I am so sorry it took me so long to get to this book. Lady Cat gets her just desserts as well as Wickham. I'd highly recommend this read to fanfic lovers. Anne comes out of her shell just in the nick of time. Mr. and Mrs. Gardiner are examined and found to be so loving, intuitive, kind and wealthy. Wealth also from an unexpected source


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mr. Bennett is great. He is actually a loving and caring father. Who could have seen that coming?


    Any additional comments?

    Great book. Lots of imagination and thought put into it. I love that Mr. Bennet put Mr. Darcy straight about Elizabeth and why she and Jane were different from the rest of the family and continued to meet with him and discuss Elizabeth.I also loved that Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam climbed the tree and discussed the book that they were both reading. The scheming with the broken elastic on her slipper to get out of dancing with Mr. Collins was great. The snuggeling in the carriage on the ride to London was touching. Jane's escape to London with her engagement and the subsequent shopping trips together and the spying that Georgiana did for extra purcheses from the grooms was cute and funny. I liked that Lady Matlock knew and respected the Gardiner's and that all the shoping was done at the Gardiner warehouses. Over all the book was fun to read and I would read over and over. A great addition to any bookshelf. I think this new author is a great writer and can't wait for another book of hers to come out.
