    Okay, so here's the thing. The things that were bad about this story, were pretty bad. But the things that were good, were really good. The story does quite a bit of revisiting Elizabeth and Jane's stories from the first two books in this series, and it does so verbatim. Perhaps I wouldn't have noticed if I didn't read them back-to-back, but I literally scrolled through entire sections of text. It would have been much nicer to focus on Mary during the beginning, perhaps more conversations, event Okay, so here's the thing. The things that were bad about this story, were pretty bad. But the things that were good, were really good. The story does quite a bit of revisiting Elizabeth and Jane's stories from the first two books in this series, and it does so verbatim. Perhaps I wouldn't have noticed if I didn't read them back-to-back, but I literally scrolled through entire sections of text. It would have been much nicer to focus on Mary during the beginning, perhaps more conversations, events, or what she observed in her head as the resident wallflower. Like the first two, it also needed some editing work...especially if you spell DeBourgh two different ways routinely through the book. We also make the jump from angst to perfection in a split second like the other two. I do love the idea of all the sisters making love matches though. BUT, Mary also has quite a bit of character growth and I was completely in love with her character by the end and I even shed a few tears for her coming into her own! The side story in this is only hinted at for a while, but once you hit the big reveal, you don't want that part to end! Then you are hit with another BIG reveal at the end and then the author attempts to give us a bit of an unfulfilling epilogue. I actually wish she would have given us another chapter or two in that present instead and it would have been way more satisfying. I will be anxious to see what she does with Kitty's story since she now has to back way up in time from the ending of Mary's story. I am still giving this 4 stars because the second half of the book was so fantastic.

    Wait....what??? I don't like to give too much away in reviews, but I have to say that there's a few parts in this 3rd book of the series that just make NO sense to me whatsoever. The addition of Col. Fitzwilliam into the story was just not necessary and didn't help the story at all. It seemed to Mr at least that the character was thrown in because the author felt she had to put him in. The scenes the author writes of the Col. attending the theatre are nonsensical and the dialogue between he and M Wait....what???

The scenes the author writes of the Col. attending the theatre are nonsensical and the dialogue between he and Mary {that comes from P&P}, makes absolutely no sense. I read it twice and could not make heads nor tails of it. Just confusing. So why was it used? Other than typos/misspellings the story isn't that bad. However, I have to go with a 3 because of the obvious problem I had with the aforementioned section of the story.

    In this Pride and Prejudice variation Mary Bennet is saved from the behaviour of her parents by her Aunt and Uncle Gardiner as they invite her to their home. Can an accidental meeting in a book shop give her a chance to overcome her shyness, and have her happy ending, with a gentleman her parents say is beneath her socially. An entertaining variation with its delightful characters, with my favourite Bennet daughter.

    This is the tale of Mary Bennet and John Wheaton. This is probably my least favorite of the adaptations of Pride and Prejudice by this writer. It almost became Pride and Prejudice meets a fantasy. Completely off the rails with how well Mary married. Mrs. Bennet's health. Just too many over the top tales. The writing was more careless leaving bother when meaning bRother! Just slopoy. This is the tale of Mary Bennet and John Wheaton.

    Lovely Another lovely installment in this series inspired by author Jane Austen’s classic novel Pride and Prejudice. A charming series of stories.
