I’m a guest at JustJane1813, where she gave my new novel, Darcy’s Honor, a 4.5 star review. There’s also an excerpt from the novel and a giveaway. In her review, Claudine writes,
“I also loved the camaraderie that was developed between Darcy and Elizabeth because it was built upon the slow, but steady development of trust and respect between them as their relationship evolved throughout the story. I felt that their collaborative efforts in this story mirrored, in many aspects, the ways that their relationship was crafted in The Secrets Between Darcy and Elizabeth, which was the book that started my love for Ms. Kincaid’s writing. Ms. Kincaid’s characterizations of Darcy and Elizabeth were spot-on and a true delight to read. I love her version of a besotted Darcy, especially when he tries to take charge of a situation for Elizabeth’s sake, as well as a strong-willed Elizabeth, who is determined to take charge of her own life, even when that path isn’t the easier one.
Ultimately, it is the liveliness of Darcy’s and Elizabeth’s minds, along with some help from a couple of unanticipated allies, that helps to save the day for our dear couple. Ms. Kincaid’s fluid and engrossing writing style make their journey an absolute pleasure for her readers to experience!”
I just finished reading Mr. Darcy to the Rescue, and I loved it. I find that I am drawn to most things Austen related, and I can be a bit critical of re-tellings, but I very much enjoyed this one. I was offered more insight into Mr. Darcy and his true character, the kind of man we know him to really be, but with the softness of familiarity we initially lack. Well written!!
