Bet Elizabeth doesn’t hang the greenery early next Christmas

Oh-my-goodness, right off the bat everything went downhill. All Elizabeth and Darcy wanted for the holidays was to spend time… together… alone. While Darcy was out and about on estate business, everything back at Pemberley fell apart at a rapid pace. First, Mr. & Mrs. Bennet descended in a flurry. Mrs. Long had convinced Mrs. Bennet that the French were going to invade and she wanted to be far in the north where it was safe. Following c

Pemberley is Ambushed by Uninvited Guests!

Eagerly anticipating a peaceful and private first Christmas together, Elizabeth Darcy has the greenery hung around Pemberley a little early, even though is supposedly unlucky to do so. But her ideas of a quiet Christmas season are ruined when a horde of uninvited family members come to avail of themselves of Pemberley’s hospitality!

Mr. and Mrs. Bennet are the first to arrive because Mrs. Bennet is convinced the French will soon attack England, and that t

4.5 rounded up to 5 stars

This is a nightmare of a Christmas for newlyweds Mr. and Mrs. Darcy! Instead of enjoying a quiet holiday alone together, a passel of uninvited guests (including their least favorite relatives) show up without warning and require an invitation to stay at Pemberley.

Mrs. Bennet is constantly on the edge of hysteria over an imagined French invasion despite Mr. Bennet's attempts to calm her. Lady Catherine comes in pursuit of Georgiana, who fled Rosings to try to escape her

4.5 stars

At times in reading this tale, I wanted to grit my teeth together as one calamity after another struck Pemberley when Elizabeth and Darcy were just settled down for a long Winter's first time celebration in their honeymoon state. Not only unexpected but also totally undesired guests descend upon ODC with the weakest or weirdest of excuses..."The French are coming, the French are coming?" shrieks Mrs. Bennet and then demands that the menservants not only be armed but practice defending t

A Very Darcy Christmas: A Pride and Prejudice Variation

I love a happy story and this one fits the description. If there was any unhappiness, it was that Elizabeth and Darcy didn't have their quiet Christmas as planned. The family appeared out of nowhere, well somewhere, but not expected. First Mr. and Mrs. Bennet arrive because she's sure the French as coming to Meryton. Safer further North in Derbyshire. Next, Georgiana appears after she's supposed to be with Aunt Catherine at Rosings. Colonel

This book was like the description. I enjoyed it but felt the plot was too unbelieveable to make it truly enjoyable. I didn't understand why D and E put up with such ridiculous behavior from relatives and why there were no consequences for say . . . setting pemberley on FIRE. I enjoyed the characters but just felt the farce was too far fetched for a higher rating. very enjoyable nonetheless. ...more

Dear Reader,

If you are looking for a variation with a hint of humour and a touch of Christmas spice,then look no further than this delightful story!!

Lizzy and Darcy,now happily married,are looking forward to their very first Christmas. Planning on spending some exclusive holiday time together at Pemberley,their hopes for a quiet and romantic festive period are dashed with the arrival of a tsunami of visitors!

Mrs Bennet fears a French invasion,so what better fortification than Pemberley!!

A quiet, private Christmas at home for Mr. Darcy and his Elizabeth is not to be.

In the style of a Christmas comedy, the plans of Darcy and Lizzy are overturned by the arrival of several of their most colorful relations. This was a quick, engaging romp exaggerating the folly of the Darcy's relations to draw some laughs while providing a heartwarming story of what has come after the happily ever after for them and a sweet romance for Georgiana.

I enjoyed all the antics. There are four main narrator

A crazy Darcy Christmas

A wonderful crazy first Christmas for Darcy and Elizabeth. It seems that there planned quite first Christmas is not to be. First Mr and Mrs Bennet descend on Pemberley, the French are coming the French are coming! Lol. Mrs Bennet feels she will be safe only at Pemberley when the French enviably evade England. Not soon afterward Georgianna shows up having had enough of Lady Catherine! Than the piece de resistance is that the great Lady herself shows up stating she is conce

I really enjoyed this story about the Darcy's first Christmas together after they get married. Elizabeth really shouldn't have hung the greenery early as it just caused a heap of trouble for the Darcy's. The characters to me seemed as that would be how they would have acted if put in this situation that they created. Mr. Bennet really should have laid down some ground rules for Mrs. Bennet instead of having her be a basket case about a fictional French invasion. And really they left Kitty and Ma ...more

Do you want a great JAFF? One that focuses heavily on the oft forgotten younger sister of our hero. Well then you should pick up this lovely book by Victoria Kincaid. Not too much angst, just enough. Romance, misunderstandings and wild adventures will keep you laughing from the get go.
Be it Lydia setting the house on fire twice. The house staff trying to get rid of Lady Catherine. A few interesting suitors for Georgiana, Mrs Bennet fearing a French invasion or the cherry on top what Co

I just loved this. Favorite quote, "You are the best Christmas gift I ever received." SIGH, this was my first JAFF book and it was great. All the main characters showed up for a very interesting Christmas and very good writing. Clean romance with lots of Austen style drama and I can't wait to read another. ...more

As the Darcys' first Christmas approaches, they are looking forward to spending time together, alone, when a horde of relations descend on them. Unfortunately they include Mrs Bennet, Lady Catherine and the Wickhams.
Really enjoyed the story, so easy to read, and loved the interplay between Georgiana and Colonel Fitzwilliam.

Such a nice continuation for this story. There is enough conflict between our leading characters to keep it interesting. The best part of this is the lovely plot lines for Richard and Georgiana.

This story will instantly put you into Christmas mood. Beautiful description of the Christmas preparations, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Twelve Nights. I loved every detail about it. The characters are amazing! Mrs Bennet with her obsession that the French will come to Longbourn/Pemberley then track her down wherever she goes is hilarious. There is nothing else she can talk about and apparently there is a mystery French man, indeed, in Lambton who has a mysterious business with none other th ...more

This book makes one reflect on the true meaning of the holidays and one's level of patience with family members. Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy expect to spend the holidays alone, but end up with an avalanche of family, from both sides, storm in and take over. Luckily, the Darcys deal with each visitor, tactfully I might add, to where they ring in a delightful New Year. Yet another treat from Victoria Kincaid. ...more
