Schemes of Felicity by Suzan Lauder

After reading the Girl Band series, I need a quick, short read. I had found this Pride and Prejudice variation- Schemes of Felicity, either in an email or it was an Amazon recommendation. Either way, I was in the mood for a little Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy.

A Quote from Schemes of Felicity by Suzan Lauder

Fitzwilliam Darcy returns to London after being refused by Elizabeth Bennet in Kent. He travels with his cousin, who will not stop talking. This, of course, is driving Mr. Darcy mad.

Mr. Darcy is forced to go to balls and the theater. But it’s at the theater he discovers that Miss Elizabeth is in London. Has she had a change of heart after his letter? Read it and see!


This was a pleasant read. It helped relax my brain and was a good variation. If you’re a fan of Pride and Prejudice, I think you will like this deviation. This one is available on Kindle Unlimited.
