No Cause to Repine - Rose Fairbanks

When a simple accident is misinterpreted and threatens Elizabeth Bennet's reputation, her fate seems sealed as Fitzwilliam Darcy's wife. While the bride is resigned, the gentleman could hardly be happier until betrayals and schemes threaten to entirely take the matter out of their hands. Overcoming the plots before them will take all the patience, perseverance and collaboration they can muster, but a partnership requires truth. Self-discovery and trust await Jane Austen's most beloved and willfully blind couple as they attempt to master their own destiny in life and love. 

My thoughts:
You all know by now that I like my variations :D

Here Darcy is about to propose, when something happens. And they have to get engaged in haste. I liked this, cos it was before he said all those stupid things. Instead they get to know each other, they talk, and Lizzy starts to doubt what she knows about him. Maybe she has been too prejudiced? Yes you have been.

They take things slow, because Lady Catherine is of course angry. Bingley and Jane will get their chance. There is still Wickham to worry about. But this is a nice variation and everyone will live happily ever after. I liked how at the end will learned what everyone did, who everyone married. I enjoyed that :)

It was a good variation. They way to learned about each other, fell in love (Darcy was of course in love already.)

Conclusion:
Variations rock! I hope I never tire of them.

  7. I don't actually like the original story, and I know it's blasphemy. :) But retellings don't work for me even when I like the original.
