Thanks for all the help catching the editing problems! We were off our game but have made the corrections! Timing can make all the difference! The Militia and the Netherfield party arrived at the same time in Meryton. As events unfold, Jane first meets Mr. Wickham, while Lizzy encounters Mr. Bingley. Introductions to new acquaintances can lead to attachments that become complicated. Mr. Bingley is interested in Lizzy, but that is before he has a chance to spend time with her older sister. Wickham is enchanted and seriously pursuing the lovely Jane. And Darcy finds himself increasingly drawn to a woman he is adamant he will never marry, which an unlikely source has much to say about in Complicated Attachments, A Pride and Prejudice Variation by Denise O'Hara.

This was a quick and very angst-free read (which may not be everyone's cup of tea...it's definitely not mine, but this was a sweet story nonetheless). The most tension I think is felt by the reader when these strange pairings happen.
As it turns out, due to some coincidences that make those of us familiar with the original story fan ourselves, Jane meets Wickham first and Lizzy meets Bingley first and thus the sparks fly from those two couples.

And in the middle of all this Darcy quickly develops feelings for Lizzy and actually spends time reading to her in her convalescence. Since at this point Lizzy was never disparaged as "tolerable" and was never really in...
There are many excellent reviews out there that have gone into more detail than I need to. There is no need for me to restate the obvious. Yes, there are errors and too many that should have been caught by an additional proof before it was sent to publication. But, I will overlook that, for the moment and talk about the writing and the story.
In any time-travel book or movie, they always caution the characters to never change anything. If you change one thing, you could change it all and you don’t know what affect it will have on the future. So in this variation we have a juxtaposition of characters and they set in motion many changes that redirects what we remember from canon and takes our story on a very different route.
Bingley meets Elizabeth and is intrigued by her wit and good humor. Wickham meets Jane and is enamored with her beauty, innocence and genuine goodness. He is so convincing with his gentlemanly manners that she is enchanted by him. He has...
This was a delightful P&P story. It left me wanting more of Denise O'Hara's versions. It was a very satisfying read.
