Reina M. Williams is touring with Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours for Miss Darcy Decides - book two in her Pride and Prejudice Novella series.

I was happy to receive the audio version of book one in the series,  Most Truly and am pleased to review it here.  Be sure to scroll down further for an opportunity to win an audio version for yourself.
Most Truly is a light, sweet Pride and Prejudice Novella, book one in the Love at Pemberley series.

Colonel James Fitzwilliam is home. The war has left him weary, battle-scarred—and a free man of fortune ready to find a wife. He travels to Pemberley, his second home. There he meets Kitty Bennet. Her unexpected charms soon have him questioning his familial duty and his expectations. A fight looms on the horizon when his aunt—Lady Catherine de Bourgh—and his parents arrive with their own plans for his future.

Kitty Bennet has found happiness. At Pemberley, she has improved herself and formed true friendships with her sister Lizzy and Georgiana Darcy. Kitty is captivated by the gentlemanly Colonel Fitzwilliam. But she will not be silly over a redcoat again, and she will not risk her happiness—or his family’s displeasure—for his attentions. Colonel Fitzwilliam, Darcy, Lizzy, and Georgiana have their say, and Kitty learns a new lesson—love will find you at Pemberley.

My review:

It was only a couple years ago that I finally read Pride and Prejudice, and I surprised myself with how much I enjoyed it.  Of course with any book that I enjoy there is always that little bit of disappointment in finishing it because you've bonded with the characters and just want to know what happens.

Most Truly continues with that story, coming in at 88 pages in length (less than 3 hours for the audio).  This novella isn't long but its concise and to the point.  There isn't a lot of extra 'fluff' here, Col. Fitzwilliam is home from war and looking for a wife.  Because of the size of this little book there wasn't a lot of detail or descriptive scenes. This is a nice little romance with Kitty at center stage.

The reader of any audio has a big impact on my enjoyment, there are some I steer clear of and others I just love.  Kate Sample is the reader of this book, it's my first experience with her and she did a satisfying job.  Her voice added to the story with the right accent for the location and time period.

It was an enjoyable listen and will appeal to those that like historical romance and also Jane Austen fans.

Reina M. Williams loves period dramas, sweet reads, fairy tales, cooking and baking. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her two boys, who hope to someday take a research trip to England with their mom.
