    1. “The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.” Audrey HepburnThe beginning of the story was a bit slow because we had to deal with the Bennets as they prepared to go out of town. Mary and Kitty were to stay with Charles and Jane at Netherfield. Little did anyone know that Caroline had invited herself, the Hursts and her bestie Miss Helena Paget to stay at Netherfield during the holidays. Her aim… a match betwee [...]

    2. My New Favorite Man in a Redcoat!Source: Review Copy from AuthorSince her plans for a grand match for Charles fell through when he married Jane Bennet, Caroline Bingley turns to her other brother, Captain Robert Bingley, to achieve a brilliant marriage and fulfill the connections and elevation she feels the Bingley family needs (and deserves!) And she has just the girl in mind…her dear friend, Miss Helena Paget. Charming, beautiful, delicate, and witty – Helena Paget is an ideal choice, not [...]

    4. This is my new favorite book. I absolutely loved it and think most people would. It is terrific. I am looking forward to more JAFF from this author. I won't write anything about it because it is that good. Just get a hard copy, trust me-you will want this on your shelf, and start reading. Give yourself a good chunk of time so you can finish it in one sitting. Sigh worthy!

    5. Sweet taleA twist on the family Bingley, with a new brother and a version of Caroline that deviates modestly. Happiness for a more vibrant, growing Mary. Well written, seems well edited and carefully proofread.

    6. This is another sequel to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice that focuses on Mary. I can't say this one was as good as others I've read but I can't say it was completely terrible either. It's better than a lot of the work I've read and had a decent story line. The story follows Mary as she is planning for a small family Christmas with Jane and Charles Bingley. Charles' sister Caroline invites their other brother, Captain Robert Bingley, and her best friend Helen. Caroline is hoping that Robert [...]

    7. What an excellent novel that brought out the third Bennet daughter from a shy, plain and unnoticeable young lady showing her the beauty that lies within her. It shows a compassionate, caring, thoughtful and not dull young lady. The plot was written with great care to make Mary as great as Elizabeth and Jane in character.Naturally, she had the help of a young captain that gave her confidence and boosted her in trusting him so that they worked together for the care of a so assumed street urchin. I [...]

    8. I’m not very good at writing reviews but I just had to express how much I adored this book! I just loved the whole premise and the way all the characters were written and how they grew, just truly enjoyed it all! I fell in love with Robert and Mary and how their relationship changed throughout the book. And I have to say how much I dearly loved Mr. Penrose!! I was not expecting another couple emerge during the story but I was so very happy to read about them. But now that we have had a taste, [...]

    9. In this sequel, Caroline Bingley arranges that her best friend, Miss Paget, the lady receiving the attentions of her brother - Captain Bingley - is invited to Netherfield for Christmas. To spend time with the Bingley and Bennet family but to ensure that the proposal that the captain and Miss Paget desire is done. But plans do not always go smoothly.Loved this, the story, the writing style, it kept me enchanted so much that I read it in one sitting. Definitely and easily in my top five JAFF books [...]

    10. This is a lighthearted variation-sequel to Pride and Prejudice that focuses on Mary Bennet, her "blossoming." I liked the character of Mary portrayed and developed by the author. The introduction of Mr. Bingley's brother was a surprise, albeit a nice addition. I found some of the actions and responses of Jane and Charles Bingley a bit of a stretch and the love interest for Captain Bingley was a bit too-predictable, yet I enjoyed reading the book.

    11. This was very cute and just what I needed on a cold afternoon. I feel the ending was a bit rushed, and some of the characters' development (looking at you, Caroline Bingley) needed more time to seem believable. An extra 100 pages might've been a good idea. But wanting more of something is always a good sign, so I definitely recommend this for P&P lovers.

    12. Avid ReaderI have this book on my Kindle for several weeks.I was thrilled with the relationship that Mary developed with Captain Bingley. Too bad Caroline left the vicar behind, He knew how strongly he affected her. Jane managed to keep Caroline in check. Caroline finally came to her senses when Helena Paget wanted him to give up his life in the military. Excellent reading!

    13. I enjoyed it even though Elizabeth and Darcy never make an appearance in this particular novel it doesn't matter at all it's a great stand-alone. I highly recommend this to any fan of Jane Austen fanfiction it's one of the better ones out there

    14. This was a truly wonderful, light read in the Pride and Prejudice genre. The characters were well developed and had some interesting twists and turns which I enjoyed. I love a good love story, and this one was super sweet!

    15. Thoroughly enjoyed I've always thought poor Mary deserved more attention and it was nice to see her story unfold. A lovely tale.

    16. This Austenation was lots of fun. The characterizations were all accurate and the language and settings adequately Austen. I very much enjoyed the variation (there is a second Bingley brother who is a soldier). And I appreciated that Lizzy and Darcy weren't present, leaving the book to focus on Mary and Kitty, and the Bingleys, including Captain Bingley. I will read others by this author.

    17. Was Wonderful a Second TimeI just finished Mary and the Captain the second time and am disappointed there is nothing else to read Nancy's characters are very well done. I loved that Mary was able to shine. Carolyn Bingley out did herself and the true character was wonderful. It was a great second journey.
