It is a truth universally acknowledged that a gossip in possession of misheard tales and desirous of both a good wife and an eager audience need only descend upon the sitting rooms of a small country town in order to find satisfaction. And with a push from Lady Catherine,

Mr. Collins sets alight a series of misunderstandings, rumours, and lies that create obstacles to a romance between Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. This slightly unhinged romantic comedy follows Darcy as he sets off to find himself a wife and instead finds himself pulled into the mire of his aunt’s machinations and his own fascination with Elizabeth, whom he believes betrothed to another.

As Meryton judges him the grieving groom of Anne de Bourgh and a caddish dallier with the hearts of others, Darcy must ferret out the truth behind his cousin’s disappearance, protect his sister from the fretful fate of all Fitzwilliam females, and most importantly, win Elizabeth’s heart.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

“Gossip, as usual, was one-third right and two-thirds wrong.”
– L.M. Montgomery, Chronicles of Avonlea

Mendacity and Mourning is funny, a little raunchy, and a whole lot of absurd (the good kind), but the story is not too unimaginable if you consider nosy neighbors, wagging tongues, and idle minds in Regency England.
