Chaos most certainly comes to Longbourn in this Pride & Prejudice variation by historical romance writer,Victoria Kincaid. Yep, we have a bevy of mismatched couples that will have any Austen fan hyperventilating with shock and dismay. I'm one of those Austen fans, so believe me its true! I was horrified to see Darcy paired with Lydia - the horror, the horror! He happens to be in the wrong place at precisely the wrong moment and before you know it he's forced to propose to her - ack! Oh, and don't get me started on the other three mismatched couples: Jane and Collins; Lizzy and Bingley; and Charlotte and Wickham. Can you imagine!?! Well, Kincaid did and it made for quite a funny and engaging read. I absolutely enjoyed getting caught up in all of the drama that ensues as a result of these four unlikely pairings. Its pretty obvious how miserable and unhappy these couples are, but they manage to "keep calm and carry on." Okay, not really. Instead, they plot and plan to get themselves reunited with their true loves, which made for quite an unputdownable read.
I just LOVED Chaos Comes to Longbourn - it was such a treat to read! The writing was smart, the characters familiar and beloved, and the story was terrific! I can't wait to read more of Kincaid's works. And I would happily recommend Chaos Comes to Longbourn to fans of Kincaid's writing and fans of Austen - you will fall in LOVE with this book!!
