Book Review: Mr. Darcy Presents His Bride by Helen Halstead

There is many sequels written to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, and Mr. Darcy Presents his Bride is one of them. Most of the sequels are not part of the collection in the library of my city, but I found this book by "accident" when I was searhing books with a word 'Mr. Darcy'.

The story in the book takes place mainly to the time after Darcy and Elizabeth has married. It starts from the point when they are still at Longbourn. Elizabeth and Darcy, Jane and Bingley are married at the same seremony and after it Mr. and new Mrs. Darcy leaves first to Pemberley and from here to London. In London Elizabeth must find new friends and make a entrance to the society as Mrs. Darcy.

The book is a lot about Elizabeth and her new acquitances, but it also tells more about Kitty, Georgiana Darcy, Jane etc. and represents new characters like Mr. Turner.

I really liked this book. I just kept missing some more details about the life of Elizabeth and Darcy. The next P&P sequel I will read will probably be Mr. Darcy's Diary by Maya Slater.
