This is a long P&P variation but it is well laid out, well developed, and has some new nuances. Some were funny and one, in particular, had my stomach in knots as I read to see if Darcy would cross a line, which in my mind would make him less of an honorable man...still a very human man, but I hold my book heroes up to higher standards.

While at Netherfield where Elizabeth is nursing a sick Jane, a decision is made to stay an extra two days; not only due to Mrs. Bennet's manipulations but

I just loved this book so much - it's the best I've read for a while. The tone, pace and language is spot on and the reader also gets to spend lots of time with Darcy and Elizabeth.

So, as the name suggests, Elizabeth and Jane stay on for two extra days at Netherfield which changes the direction of the story. The variation starts almost immediately where Elizabeth overhears Miss Bingley teasing Darcy about his interest in her (Elizabeth). In the extra days at Netherfield, and as a consequence of

“It is not time or opportunity that is to determine intimacy; --it is disposition alone. Seven years would be insufficient to make some people acquainted with each other, and seven days are more than enough for others.” –Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility

Everything that we expect in a Pride and Prejudice variation was present in this story. Our author started with the question ‘What-if’ Jane and Lizzy stayed two more days at Netherfield when Jane was sick. Would our story change that much? I was

If there is a day to act on the Love in your soul it is today, it is this moment. ~ Mike Dolan

“Two More Days at Netherfield” gives our favorite couple just that – two more days to find the love in their souls and two more days to act on it.

In canon Pride & Prejudice, Elizabeth and Jane arrange a ride back to Longbourn in Mr. Bingley’s carriage when their Mother claims the Bennet carriage will not be available until Tuesday. In contrast, Elizabeth realizes in the beginning of this book that

Love this story. I read it as an unpublished novel. Had the pleasure of reading the published version. So glad that it has been published.

The published version is definitely 5 quality.

Who knew that two extra days at Netherfield can make such a difference.

Love all the twists that the additional two days provided.

Give Mrs. Bennet the proper encouragement and it could be used to the the benefit of her family and community. I loved how she championed not having officers at Longbourn.

So glad

An uncommon series of what ifs

Instead of thinking poorly about Darcy for most of the book, Lizzy overhears some praise about her, while she and Jane are at Netherfield. Instead of Darcy worrying someone will ruin Georgiana’s reputation it’s is he who leaves part of a letter laying around with info about Ramsgate. Luckily Lizzy finds it and protects it. Darcy is the one to jump to conclusions often instead Lizzy.

So many of the common tropes are turned on their head.

So a newish tale is told and we

Received an ARC for an honest review. Overall, a slower-paced, angsty book with a unique and interesting storyline.

Some well-plotted deviations from cannon that make this story interesting. At Netherfield Elizabeth overhears Darcy complimenting her to Caroline, which helps to heal her wounded vanity and opens the door for her to settle her grievances against Darcy for his slight at the assembly. Their interactions at Netherfield after they resolve their differences are refreshing, and it was

4.5 stars. Slightly too much angst for me, but BEAUTIFULLY written. Excellent dynamic. Great POV switches.

Slight SPOILER - The part with Miss F frightened me so much I barely read that chapter. Just enough to know if it was safe.

The Darcy We Dream About

A wonderful romance variation that has it all: contempt, reconcilliation, misunderstandings and heartfelt desire. When deliberate falsehoods tear apart our two would-be lovers, we feel their pain and regrets, holding fast to the hope that the villains will be exposed and the righteous will earn their rewards. Contains enough maturity, beautifully described without brushing extremes.Well conceived and accomplished. This will keep you turning pages past bedtime - Be Warned!

It started well but from the time of the ball on it became tedious and dragged. Later, the story took another turn that I wished it didn't and I was harded to the outcome. I wouldn't read this one again.

Another great contribution to the genre from this author. What if E overheard more than what D says at the Assembly. With two more days at Netherfield, E overhears that D thinks she is pretty, or at least that she has fine eyes. Now she has competing information. Does he admire her or not? With two more days and her curious nature, it allows ODC to find out a bit more of each other before being parted. I love their relationship in this book, that its founded on their conversations and mutual ...more

This lovely story was well-written and edits. The first quarter of the book or so moved slowly while we spent a few extra days at Netherfield. After that, the action picked up and I enjoyed the story more. The story also has a more extreme version of a slothful Mr. Bennet, which was quite fun. I also enjoyed the length denouement that is sometimes missing in a romance story.

I recieved an ARC with no promise of review.

OMG, what suspense! Although I knew there would be a happy end, I wanted to step in myself to explain things to the characters. Very well done!

Lovely P&P fan fiction

Lots of Darcy and Elizabeth, great dialogues, very well written. It is an engrossing story. Wickham is both more cunning and cruel. Highly recommend.

In this skillfully crafted Pride and Prejudice variation, our beloved characters' personalities are on full display as readers discover the difference just a couple extra days can make for more effective communication. I appreciated the inner dialogue that gave me more insight into Mr Darcy's opinion of Jane Bennet's behavior toward Mr Bingley. It makes it far clearer why he felt his interference was justified in the original story. I so enjoy stories such as this one that further my ...more

I’m glad others enjoyed this book more than I. The first half was good even if it was a little slow, but for me, the second half just dragged and dragged and the misunderstandings just kept going on & on to the point that I had to start doing a lot of skimming or I wouldn’t have been able to finish. It got better towards the end, but I’m not sure it was worth it. I was also not impressed with the gentleman’s “house party”, not my cup of tea. Overall, there were some good and enjoyable ...more
