    One thought on “Georgiana Darcy, Matchmaker”

    1. In Georgiana Darcy, Matchmaker, we see a story where Mr. Darcy's beloved little sister travels to Hertfordshire to speed things up for our beloved couple. I've always loved what-if stories involving Georgiana, so I just had to read this! It was also interesting to see a story written in Georgiana Darcy's POV.It had its charms, but if you're a bit of a stickler for proper regency etiquette as I am (not that I claim to have extensive knowledge of regency etiquette), some of the scenes may bother y [...]

    2. This is a unique P&P what if that puts one of the least appreciated characters front and center. So many authors seem at a loss at what to do with poor Georgiana; either she is literally lifted from Mrs. Reynold's description, she sings and plays all day, almost a parody of Miss Bingleys Netherfield set down of Lizzy, “Georgiana Darcy a great pianist, and has no pleasure in anything else.” Or she is made into a spoiled monster who only seeks to punish everyone. In this clever story Geor [...]

    4. Wonderful book from Bronwen ChisolmThis was fun all around. I enjoyed seeking Georgiana having friends everywhere. Poor girl was always so lonely. The plot was different, always a good thing. An awesome reqd!

    5. I'm struggling with a review for this. The story begins when Georgiana receives a letter from her brother in which she instantly recognises his interest in Elizabeth and that he is going to run from her. So, she decides to play match maker and to her credit, she does beautifully. I really liked her. The book is written from her perspective in the first person, which is unusual but actually very interesting. The first part of the book is about the developing relationship between Darcy and Elizabe [...]

    6. It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. ~e.e. cummingsOur Dear Georgiana -- her own story!After being beaten down by the events at Ramsgate, Georgiana seizes her opportunity to help her beloved brother in his courtship (before he had realized he was in a courtship) and thus begins her recovery.A wonderful story with Georgiana continuing to make errors and yet reaching maturity, told entirely in Georgiana's voice.

    7. 3.5 rounded up to 4An easy fun read but fell a little short. Too many scenarios that weren't true to the Regency era. Since we were reading from Georgianna's view, we didn't get the romance that makes JAFF fans devour JAFF books. Maybe had Georgianna's romance been a bit more detailed it would have made up for the Lack of Darcy & Elizabeth's romance. Mrs. Bennet and Lydia were portrayed a little sillier, meaner, vindictive than I like. I also found the ending a tad rushed and way out of char [...]

    8. What if after reading the letters from her brother, Georgiana Darcy decides to travel to Netherfield and meet Elizabeth Bennet. Obviously it doesn't take her long to realise that Elizabreth doesn't like her brother. So what can she do about it. And there is the mayhem caused by Wickham to contend with.An enjoyable story.

    9. Nice idea, but it just didn't work for me. Because you read only Georgiana's thoughts and observations, you completely miss the real romance for Darcy & Elizabeth. Georgiana tries to get them together and she has some successes, but you don't read Darcy's or Lizzy's thoughts, you only see how they behave toward each other and at some point it is mentioned they are engaged. And that's it. Very few conversations between them, no proposal, no romance except for 2 kisses on Elizabeth's hand, yay [...]

    10. Georgie's POVLoved this story! Ms Chisholm's masterful storytelling was effortless and lacked the contrived angst that one sees in so many JAFF stories. This is a wonderful story of Georgie's growth as she humorously tried to bring about E and D's HEA while unintentionally bringing about her own. Loved Wickham's comeuppance!

    11. Georgiana - All grown up I love the way Ms. Chisholm used a new heroine - one Ms, Darcy , I smiled I giggled a lot and had the requisite angst . She showed us all that our little Georgie or Poppet can still be a young girl with womanly wisdom. I simply loved this book .

    12. I read this in installments before it was published on BeyondAusten. It was a fun story told for several view points (Georgiana, Elizabeth, Darcy). I believe she may have changed the view to only through Georgiana's eyes, which I think could help make it less confusing. It was a fun read.

    13. GeorgieLovely evening entertainmentSpunky Georgie was a nice change for her character. A Delightful read enjoyed in a evening.
