    1. It's a family affair: All in the family, etc. This was not exactly what I expected but I found it not only enthralling but also very well written. As with her first three books in this series the author tantalizes and stretches our brain with her use of the thesaurus. As the book description tells us the three Darcy children are teenagers and/or on the brink of coming out; as are the Bingley and Wickham cousins. However there is always that chance that offspring are going to take after an auntor [...]

    2. New Pleasures was just that. It was a terrific follow-up. It is hard to write a P & P variation where D & E are middle aged with grown children. Many times, Darcy is a curmudgeon and Elizabeth is experiencing empty next syndrome. Those tales seem to center around the "next generation" and this one does as well with a healthy balance of E & D. The children are prominent but E & D are still on the main stage. I loved the whole series and find Ms Berdoll to be one of the finest auth [...]

    3. Like a fine wine, some things actually do improve with age! Now that Linda Berdoll has released the fourth book in her series of “ Pride & Prejudice” sequels, “ The Darcys: New Pleasures” I can happily add the Darcys’ marriage to this list as well!When Austen scholar, Patricia Meyer Spacks spoke with Five Books about her love for “Pride and Prejudice,” she describes how the ending of this novel differs in one significant way from all of her other novels:Pride and Prejudice is t [...]

    4. A pleasureIn this 4th book of Ms Berdoll we see the Darcy's children all grown up. Again Ms Berdoll makes the everyday seem interesting and the trials to be had real and stressful. She does a great job of forwarding the story while revisiting what happened in the past 3 books, she does it seamlessly. Young Darcy is coming into his own and trying to feel some oats while staying a gentleman. His twin while being a lady is trying to be the adult in the room, keeping everyone honest. And of course t [...]

    5. Extremely good story I'm not overly pleased that the writer jumped from Elizabeth being pregnant in the last book to her daughter being a teenager in the beginning of this one. Missing out on the years that shaped the three Darcy children into the complex characters they are. Its surprising that Darcy didn't take much interest in his own children. With his penchant for details one would think he'd be overly involved. Maria at times shows her ignorance. As her sister tells her, one must open the [...]

    6. For me, this one wasn't quite the page-turner the previous 3 were. Only within the last 50-75 pages did it get to a point of not wanting to put it down. With this installment being more about the Darcy kids, their characters weren't defined enough to really care about the calamities that befell them. Though the kindle version (I can't vouch for the printed version) had quite a few typos that were distracting at times, in the end, the narrative was nicely wrapped up.

    7. I loved it! Less angst filled compared to the previous books, wich was bordering on painfull to read. That said it is still thrilling, romantic with an exciting plot. I love how ODCs love has stood the test of time, unwavering and matured. The trips down memory lane was lovely and the enlightenment of some of the previous events was appreciated.Absolutely loved the ending.I hope there is a fifth book coming though, there is still a lot of loose ends I think. Would like to see Elizabeth put Julie [...]
