Review published at Betrothals and Betrayals Mr Bennet dies in a carriage accident and Mr Collins father who is still alive ejects the entire family from Longbourn forcing the eldest daughters to find employment The book starts with and engrossing interaction between Elizabeth and Miss Darcy and it immediately grabbed my attentionThe story is captivating and it was the first time I saw Jane Bennet as a companion to Miss Darcy instead of Elizabeth who usually takes this role in JAFF variations This was stimulating because the author explored a less common path and it was sufficient to make me want to continue reading to see what was going to happen and how she would bring Elizabeth closer to the Darcy familyAs the story progresses events become a little in line with the plots we have been seeing in JAFF but the narrative remained innovative in some small details which was something I appreciatedThere were a few sentences and scenes throughout the book that add some mystery to the story making this an exciting and dynamic book The reader is not only faced with a romance but also with some mystery that needs to be solved and that was a pleasant surpriseSome character developments were uite interesting too and the one I loved the most was Mrs Bennet’s and her influence over Lydia However some others were not uite as I expected namely Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Mr Darcy wasn’t as proud as I would expect and Elizabeth was too outspoken for someone of her position which made some of the scenes feel less plausible Overall I did enjoy the story and different plotlines that Cinnamon Worth developed in this book Readers will find romance as well as mystery in a book that is uite a page turner with a fast pace and compelling narrative

REVIEW OF THE AUDIOBOOK AS PERFORMED BY MEGAN GREEN Regency set alternative history to Pride and Prejudice starting off in Ramsgate as Georgiana Darcy is contemplating eloping with George Wickham and is found alone in inclement weather on the street by Elizabeth waiting for aforesaid gentleman Elizabeth Bennet is about to start working as a companion to a wealthy widow in Ramsgate following the death of her father and the elder Mr Collins father of William Collins from canon has thrown the Bennet women out of Longbourn She prevents anything untoward happening and is eventually offered the position of Georgiana's new companion She refuses as she already has a position and suggests her sister Jane who eventually takes the post Jane coincidentally has to leave it eventually to marry Bingley who she meets at Pemberley just as Elizabeth's employer dies Guess who ends up in the postThere are many misunderstandings between Elizabeth and Darcy as usual; a major one being her presumptuous reorganistion of Pemberley's library Personally I'd probably have reacted just like Darcy if someone had done that to my library without permission or discussion no matter how altruistic the reason turns out to be Darcy is searching for a wife who fits a list of particular criteria and can produce an heir not someone he can love and share his life with The title is uite appropriate as there are several of each The first betrayal is obviously that of Georgiana by Wickham and the first betrothal is that of Jane and Bingley Both occur uite early in the story The remainder of both are for the reader to find out One is a particular doozy butspoilers I definitely enjoyed this story and the story was engagingly enough told for me to want to see it through Some of the plot twists wereunexpected though once again as I've found with Ms Worth's writing there were a few too many modern andor American language uses throughout for this picky Brit readerlistener waistcoat not vest The audio performance by Megan Green wasn't bad with only an occasional mispronunciation lieutenant is pronounced leff tenant and not loo tenant in UK English and there was a very strange pronunciation of awry I obtained a free copy of this audiobook at my own reuest from Story Origin A review was reuested but not demanded and this is my honest opinion I'd give it 35 stars if I could but have rounded it up to 4 just rather than rounding it down
