In the Wilds of DerbyshireIn the Wilds of Derbyshire by Jann Rowland
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

After the marriage of Mary (to Collins - very disappointing) and Jane to Bingley (and later her indifference to Elizabeth), Elizabeth travels to Derbyshire to visit with her Uncle Drummond and his family. So that she can help with his oldest daughter's coming out. There she meets the Darcys and the Colonel.
An enjoyable story (apart from Mary's marriage) and certainly enlivened by Caroline Bingley.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

What if after the Hunsford proposal, Darcy and Elizabeth meet the next day and talk. Consequently he gives her another letter. There is also a bit more about the Collins marriage, and I enjoyed the interactions between the three cousins.
A delightful story and a lovely Colonel. A 3.5 rating

A Promise Given (Henrietta and Inspector Howard #3)A Promise Given by Michelle Cox
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Henrietta and Clive's wedding finally arrived and they are off on their honeymoon starting in England. There is eventually a murder but not really much of a mystery story, more of a family saga. So a diappointment for me and I still find that I don't like the character of Henrietta.

Understanding ElizabethUnderstanding Elizabeth by Robin M. Helm
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

While Elizabeth is at Netherfield attending to a very ill Jane, Darcy comes across her writings and against his better judgment he reads them. Only to find out what Elizabeth truely thinks of him. With her extended stay he does try and improve her opinion of him. But this is Darcy. This is a story told from his POV.
There are some religious sections where Darcy is being tempted by two powerful 'beings', but not too much. The story also offers possible other suitors to Elizabeth, and a delightful Georgiana. So an enjoyable story.

Mr. Darcy's Bluestocking Bride: A Pride and Prejudice Variation (Pride and Prejudice and Bluestockings #1)Mr. Darcy's Bluestocking Bride: A Pride and Prejudice Variation by Rose Fairbanks
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Netherfield party have left, and Elizabeth Bennet overhears Wickham detailing his plans for her sisters. Meanwhile Darcy, heir to a barony, is instructed to look for a bluestocking as a bride to re-instate the Bluestocking club. When he meets Elizabeth at Rosings he finds that he is as lost as ever. Quite a few twists to the plot with a few scandals exposed results in an interesting read.
There is to be a sequel which hopefully will include Elizabeth's sisters
