Loved it!

In this Pride and Prejudice variation George Wickham's marriage to a much older, wealthy, and sickly woman means that he now has the means to purchase an estate and live respectably. He visits Hertfordshire and befriends Bingley and the Bennet family. When Darcy, who has left Hertforshire to protect his heart from Lizzy, hears that Wickham is courting Lizzy, he returns to warn them away. But since Wickham no longer needs money Darcy needs to devise a new plan to get Wickham where he wants him.

I really loved this fun variation! I absolutely loved this version of the Bennet girls. They got into some truly funny situations, and the little deceptions were hilarious. Bingley offering Darcy a set down was another enjoyable moment. I've never read a version where Wickham is successful and has no money concerns, it was an interesting take. Wickham isn't as awful as in the original because he never attempted to elope with Georgiana, instead he married a sick woman but kept her happy for the rest of her life.

Lizzy's close friendship with Wickham had me so worried I did something I've never done before. I actually peeked ahead in the audiobook to see when Lizzy would realize what Wickham was up to. It had me on pins and needles! As for Lizzy and Darcy's relationship, the moments they spent together were all sweet, and I couldn't wait for their happily ever after.

The narration was well done, with separate voices for each character. Her performance made it easy to get drawn into the story. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Narrator

The narrator almost put me to sleep. She also sounds like she is about to cry. Sorry Ms. Worth

Deception and Debauchery by Cinnamon Worth

This is a good pride and prejudice variation though not really the best story. Cinnamon Worth has more greater stories than this one. Still a good and easy read/listen. Entertaining.

A great variation

I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. A great variation of Pride and Prejudice. I enjoyed following the antics of Mr. Darcy and the sisters. The narration was excellent on the Audiobook by Megan Green. It was so fun reading who was wishing after who and who was going to get their heart broken or get married. Definitely recommend.

Wonderful Twist!

I was given a free review copy of the audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was definitely one of the more enjoyable versions of the Pride and Prejudice genre that this author has written. It all seems to fit into place with the characters getting what they deserve at the end, be that bad or good. The hard-to-like Caroline Bingley is even more despicable in this tale and a well-suited match for the conniving George Wickham. Since all's well that ends well, the forgone ending will prove to be as sweet as we have come to expect. In this tale, once more, Mary comes out as a better figure, more intelligent and insightful than the original one. I have a feeling that the author tries very hard to give Mary her just due. The storyline has enough action to keep you wanting to see what will happen next and I loved how all of the sisters plotted to let justice prevail.
The narration was very well done and gave life to all of the characters. A must listen to audiobook for the P&P fans.

A peculiar twist on a timeless tale

Pride and prejudice is so impactful, because the satire of human foibles is applicable to every society of people.
Ms. Worth has done an excellent job of understanding the author’s characters and deepening their story with a twist of fate. Mr. Wickham gets a fortune. With this change in the story, Wickham becomes free from the restraint of pursuing only women of lower rank or lower logic. Now even women of mean would consider him a possible match, thus allowing Wickham the freedom to manipulate them.
What could go wrong?
This is a peculiar twist on a timeless tale!

Not for me

This may be a great book, but not to my liking. Not to say the book is bad or not written well. I am just not enthralled by the comings and goings of European Aristocrats.
That said, I would just like to say the rating says "Not For Me" not bad book, or bad writing.
