REVIEW of “No cause to repine” by Rose Fairbanks

Darcy and Elisabeth are now in the middle of a scandal and she accepts to marry him. It is true that in all the variations that I have read, they end up together, as it happens in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. However, this time there is more story, there are more people involved. Characters show more their personality, for instance Mr Bennet or we discover the ‘real’ Lady Catherine.

Darcy talks more and shows his soul and mind, it is something that I have really liked. Elizabeth is still ‘impertinent’ but she is in essence the same. She loves teasing exactly the same way as Jane Austen described.

The story is still about these two amazing characters but they are not alone. Family, friendship and love are the key in this story and the faithfulness to Jane Austen’s style is endearing.

I highly recommend this novel to the lovers of Pride and Prejudice and other variations.

Thank you, Rose Fairbanks for sharing your novel with me.
