Mr Bennet leaves his study : A Regency Romance based on P&PMr Bennet leaves his study : A Regency Romance based on P&P by Sydney Salier
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In this Pride and Prejudice variation, Mr Bennet finally becomes fed up with the attitude of Lydia. So he leaves his study and takes action, resulting in the improvement of all the Bennets including himself. A year later Netherfield is taken. I enjoyed reading Darcy getting upbraided for his attitude at the Meryton assembly and for Bennet not to be as useless as he is in canon.
An entertaining re-read, low angst story but would have liked more of Mary's story

In this Pride and Prejudice variation, Elizabeth at the age of 12 decides her younger sisters need to be educated and protected from their very contentious parents. How will this affect their futures especially when the Netherfield party arrives.
An entertaining well-written variation. One of the few I have enjoyed recently. Though I would have liked to have read more about the future of the other Bennet daughters and Georgiana.

Kiss Me Good Night, Major DarcyKiss Me Good Night, Major Darcy by Georgina Young-Ellis
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

1944 Jane and Elizabeth are nurses, Catherine and Lydia volunteers in the same hospital while Mary works as a land girl. Enjoyable first half until it came to another disappointing pairing for Mary but it could have been worse.. Which is when I lost interest but did quickly read to the end. And no Colonel Fitzwilliam.
Overall an enjoyable story
