Whatever happened to Caroline Bingley after her brother and unrequited love interest married a Bennet sister? Join me in this story of redemptive love and the healing of broken dreams.

Caroline Bingley, beyond frustrated with her brother, Charles and Mr. Darcy both proposing to the Bennet sisters, dreads their upcoming nuptials. For three years her sole focus has been on attaining a marriage proposal from one Fitzwilliam Darcy of Pemberley, only to be foiled by a country miss with ‘fine eyes’. Adrift and not sure of her place in life, she meets the mysterious and devastatingly handsome Lord Nathan, who equally vexes and intrigues her.

Lord Nathan Kerr, third in line to a Dukedom, had a well-earned reputation as a Rake. He cast all that and his noble title aside to become Mr. Darcy’s vicar in Kympton, finding contentment in leading his small flock and doing the Lord’s work. His plan for a quiet, country life is thrown into upheaval when he meets the fiery Miss Bingley. Can he reconcile his rising desire for the spoiled miss with how a vicar’s wife ‘should’ behave?

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.

KU Eligible

I didn’t now what to expect when I first heard of this story. I’m not Caroline’s biggest fan, but there’s always been a tiny part of me that wanted to know what happened to her after Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy married their respective Bennet brides.

And color me surprised. I enjoyed this story very much! It was interesting to see how Ms. Barr would write what life was like for Caroline after her brother’s engagement to Jane. She started out as every bit the character we got to know in Pride and Prejudice—shallow, judgmental, and has a penchant for looking down on other people. She finds a match in Lord Nathan Kerr, a reformed rake, and the current vicar at Kympton.

Review & Giveaway | Understanding Elizabeth by Robin M. Helm

I enjoy reading stories written in Mr. Darcy’s perspective, and it’s always interesting to see how an author weaves a story of their own from the canon and how they portray Darcy.  In Understanding Elizabeth, we have Mr. Darcy at a crossroads—to listen to the angel or to the demon both […]

ARC Review | The Elizabeth Papers by Jenetta James

What a lovely novel! I don’t usually read Pride and Prejudice stories that take place after the canon, but the intrigue of the blurb called to me. I’m so happy I got the chance to read this book because it was amazing! I devoured the whole book and was engaged […]

Review | Act Like It by Lucy Parker

I love this book! A well-written slow burn romance with my favorite trope (hello, fake relationship!), witty banter, and a little Pride and Prejudice-esque feel to it. I wouldn’t go as far as to call it a modern-day Pride and Prejudice, but there’s a lot of influence there, especially with the main characters. And […]

ARC Review | The Bachelor Auction (The Bachelors of Arizona #1) by Rachel Van Dyken

Who doesn’t love a good rags to riches love story? Especially one very (huge emphasis on the very) loosely based on Cinderella. The Bachelor Auction stars Brock Wellington, the eldest of Charles Wellington’s three grandsons. For some reason, Brock’s grandfather wants to auction him off. Highest bid gets a date, and hopefully […]
