His Good Opinion By Nancy Kelley

I have read a couple of Pride and Prejudice retellings from Darcy's point of view, and I must say I loved this one!

His Good Opinion starts out just before Ramsgate where Darcy surprises Georgiana with a visit, and ruins Wickman's plan to elope with her.  Nancy Kelley is able to expand on some of the conversations that I always wished Jane Austen would have done.

Can I just say, I love this Darcy! I love being in his head; knowing his thoughts. We see him reflecting on what Elizabeth said when she refused him. He begins to notice how he treats people beneath him. I also like the relationship he has with Georgiana, and that he confides in her more.

Another favorite of mine is Colonel Fitzwilliam. I delighted in the banter between him and Darcy. This is the Colonel Fitzwilliam that I like! He's funny, charming and loves to tease Darcy. There were times he had me laughing out loud.

This is Nancy Kelley's first novel and a beautiful story. A definite must read! She is currently working on another story about Colonel Fitzwilliam that I can't wait to read!

I was given a copy of book for review.

Buy a copy of His Good Opinion here.   

Tell me what you think! I'd love to hear from you!


  1. Thank you for the lovely review, Candy. I'm especially pleased you enjoyed the relationships between Richard and Darcy, and Darcy and Georgiana, as those are pivotal in my current novel.

    Of course, Darcy's transformation played the biggest role in His Good Opinion. I had a delightful time teasing the few bits of information Jane gave into something more.

    Thanks again.

  2. Nancy, you are very welcome! I really enjoyed your book! And now that I know your characters better, I'm really look forward to the next one! Thanks for leaving a comment!

  3. I am really looking forward to this read. The original P&P only allows us hints of what Darcy is really thinking until he opens the flood gates at Hunsford.

    Thanks for posting the review, Candy.
