Skylar Hamilton Burris ☆ 7 REVIEW

When Mr Collins leaves his living at Rosings for a higher or at least lucrative calling a lascivious new rector takes his place Mr Darcy fears this handso. I read and enjoyed this author s Conviction A Seuel to Jane Austen s Pride and Prejudice a few years ago In fact I ve reread it several times I hadn t noted any other contributions from her to the Kindle JAFF world until this I picked it up curious to see if this was as good I m happy to report that this is similarly high uality writingThere are three short stories in this collection The first is actually a novella and gives this collection its title It s a delightfully unusual take on the happenings at Rosings when a new parson Mr Jonson replaces Mr Collins He is very different from the previous cleric and has uite the effect on the women at Rosings I really enjoyed the surprise ending hereThe other two focus on everyone s favorite couple Elizabeth and Darcy All 3 stories including the opening novella occurs after they re wed so these are seuels My favorite is The Battle To Win where the married couple exchanges letters while Darcy is away from Pemberley It certainly satisfies our craving for insights into their relationship as a couple and the wit flows long and deep here Mr Darcy s Homecoming the shortest of the 3 short stories gives a sweet glimpse into the romantic playful side of their relationship without getting objectionably graphicGreat happy meal combo of well written tales

Me man of the cloth may have designs on his sickly cousin Anne and he races to rescue her from a fate worse than death marriage In addition to the title n. I read PP about once a year I love the characters and always wanted to know what happened to poor Anne after Mr Darcy chose Elizabeth When Skylar Burris appeared on my blog to pitch The Strange Marriage of Anne de Bourgh to me I snapped up the sample right away and I enjoyed it so much I bought the book Without further dawdlingFrom a Reader s PerspectiveWhat I love most about Pride and Prejudice is the language I get caught up in the flow and rhythm of Austin s words on the page While this is a collection of short stories based on the PP characters it doesn t have the same cadence which I firmly believe is one of the major reasons so many of us love the root story Even so I enjoyed the easy banter between Lizzy and Mr Darcy further rooting their odd relationship as one that works Both were overly witty in PP and that was both a blessing and a curse My favorite short was the letters the couple exchanged as it displayed a lot of their nature and gift with words There was no backstory so if you aren t familiar with the original you probably won t enjoy these short tales Writing was well done and flowed smoothly but was missing that je ne sais uoi I was looking forward toFrom an Editor s PerspectiveThere was one instance where the author lost her character s name Jonson became Johsnon but there were only three or four other errorsRating1 Star for giving me laughs with some of my favorite PP characters1 Star for the letters short which was very well done1 Star for giving Anne a happily ever after1 Star for writing that had few errors 1 Star for not capturing me with prose that had cadenceOverall 4 out of 5 stars Enjoyable read with fun shorts that ll keep you entertained
