    This is a PP what if seuel Here we get to learn about Mary Bennet Mr Mrs Bennet and the new doctor in town Neither Mr or Mrs Bennet in this story are likeable He is profoundly indolent and she is profoundly selfish And Mary is kind of full on the description Miss Bingley uses in PP and in her air altogether there is a self sufficiency without fashion which is intolerable'' The story is a bit of a Scooby Doo mystery where a decomposing body is found in a hidden cellar when Mary hires a man to fix the crumbling foundation As her identity is uncovered further investigation will seem to disinherit Mr Collins The fortunes of Longbourn will improve but Mary remains insistent that she won't marry There is another book in the series but this does have a reasonable endingAlmost none of the other PP characters appear; except in cameos or less And Sir William and Lady Lucas are NOT Lord Lady Lucas

    Avid ReaderI enjoyed reading this bookand I shall immediately read the next I wanted to give it a five but the numerous errors sometimes disturbed the flow of the book Mary and Dr Sutton made uite the South and saved Longbourn in the bargain Hopefully MrBennett didn't tell his wife the truth about the amount of money found

    This was a post Jane and Lizzy wedding story focused on Mary I really enjoyed her personality and manners The mystery of the heiress linked the story together but the book didn't read like a mystery Mary's love interest has a fascination with forensics which is a new concept in the the time period The author treated this well in my opinion I also love what happens to Mr CollinsMy favorite thing is that it is a planned series but this story felt complete It was only at the very end did I notice the set up for the next book

    The best of the 'Mary' books so far The story is a fine read utterly conseivable A drawback is the modern language and sometimes modern day manners but I thoroughly enjoyed this book

  7. Cheryl Cheryl says:

    Continuing my reading of Mary Bennet “variations” I bought this novella from though it is available via Kindle unlimited It was a good genealogical mystery and the PP characters rang true so I would be willing to read the rest of the series However this book desperately needed copy editing—anachronisms punctuation formatting apostrophes even unreviewed autocorrects ascent for assent? Responsivity for responsibility? As a short piece it broke no new ground in exploring Austen’s characters—they are at most lightly resketched from Austen—or building a detailed setting While a pleasant diversion it doesn’t rank among the best of the genre

    uite interesting storyWhile this is an interesting story that revolves almost completely around Mary Bennet I found myself wondering WHY did they tell Mrs Bennet about the good coins? Everyone knows she can't keep her mouth shut and she spends without any regards to the future It's actually a morbid story of finding the remains of a Bennet ancestor in a walled in section of the rodent infested basement The investigation into who she was is uite interesting and it gives one an appreciation for the old Bible records They wrote in the history of every single member of the family in their main Family Bible Great reference

    SweetAlthough a horrible crime is in the center of this particular novel it still maintains a lightness and sweetness that leads the reader on
