    1. Though Maria Grace has been writing fiction since she was ten years old, those early efforts happily reside in a file drawer and are unlikely to see the light of day again, for which many are grateful After penning five file drawer novels in high school, she took a break from writing to pursue college and earn her doctorate in Educational Psychology After 16 years of university teaching, she returned to her first love, fiction writing She has one husband and one grandson, two graduate degrees and two black belts, three sons, four undergraduate majors, five nieces, is starting her sixth year blogging on Random Bits of Fascination, has built seven websites, attended eight English country dance balls, sewn nine Regency era costumes, and shared her life with ten cats.

    2. It is helpful to understand that this is a sequel to Mistaking Her Character: A Pride and Prejudice Variation, although this is a stand-alone novel and it is not absolutely necessary to read the previous book. You will want to keep in mind, though, that Mr. Bennet was transformed to DOCTOR Bennet and previously was the private doctor caring for Anne DeBourgh at Rosings. He also was far from being a benign but disinterested parent; instead, he has rained criticism and disdain upon all his daughte [...]

    3. I had originally intended to have a vlog in defense of Lydia Bennet filmed to go along with today's review, but alas, I somehow managed not to account for Labor Day, and that just didn't happen. Next year, I suppose, but I do have to say, I've come to look at a lot of Austen characters differently as I've gotten older and pondered more, and I can't seem to muster up the annoyance and dislike of Lydia that I once held. (And even though I didn't end up talking about her in it, Lydia was actually o [...]

    4. Book 2 The Queen of Rosings Park: OMG!!!I put off reading this book 2 in The Queen of Rosings series by Maria Grace for the simple fact I didn’t care about the Lydia character and didn’t think I cared about what happened to her. I finally decided to bite the bullet and simply get it out of my TBR pile. Oh, my goodness, was I ever wrong.I would suggest not skipping over book one. It is possible to read this as a stand-a-lone; there are enough hints at the back story to let the reader know wha [...]

    5. 4.5 stars! Lydia Bennet Improves Upon Acquaintance(Note: Potential readers should be made aware that this is the second book in Maria Grace’s The Queen of Rosings Park series. And while it is a stand alone novel, it is better to read this series in order because as fans of Maria Grace may already know, she has a penchant for altering situations and personalities!) So yeah…I was so eager to read this book that I didn’t realize it was the second book of a series! oops! (Oh well, wouldn’t b [...]

    6. I had started reading this book on a Fan fiction site several months ago and knew I had to buy it as soon as it was released. This is a truly original look at the characters of Pride and Prejudice. This is a sequel to Mistaking Her Character: A Pride and Prejudice Variation. You aren't required to read the first book to enjoy this one but it will add to your enjoyment.This story begins with Lydia Bennet arriving alone at a Seminary for Young ladies in the English countryside. She has been sent t [...]

    7. What a wonderful book! I don't normally go for too many sequels and particularly not ones that aren't about Elizabeth and Darcy, however I am so glad I made this one of the exceptions. I enjoyed the book that this follows, Mistaking Her Character, and love Maria Grace's writing so I knew I was in with a good chance of an enjoyable ride. This really was 5 stars of pleasure for me. I thoroughly enjoyed Lydia's well paced journey, and the characters of the other girls at the school and the impact t [...]

    8. Source: I received an ARC copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.Mr. Darcy has sent Lydia off to a girls boarding school in hopes that she may be reformed. Is her fate to be better than the wife of Mr. Wickham? Not in her mind it isn't. The owner and mistress, Mrs. Drummond was starch and stiff in Lydia's eyes and no one understood herwell maybe her new friends Amelia and Joan did. But are they really her friends? The music teacher, Mr. Amberson is odd but he nutures ta [...]

    9. I will start off by saying that Lydia has never been one of my favorite characters from Pride and Prejudice. But Ms. Grace has done a fantastic of redeeming the youngest Bennet daughter in my eyes. I've always believed that Lydia and Wickham were never a good fit and that they should have ended up with different partners. The idea of Lydia being sent off to school to better herself has always in my mind been a good idea. Actually I think Kitty needs to be sent too but that's just my opinion. In [...]

    10. The story continues with this second book in the Rosings series with the tale of Lydia. After her disgrace she is sent to Mrs. Drummond boarding school for basically fallen females. Can Lydia change and learn where she went wrong, can there ever be a happy ending for her.I really enjoyed the story and the style of writing was a joy to read. Hoping there will be another in the series. Though I think I might have to go back and re-read the first book.

    11. This may be my favorite Maria Grace work to date! It was such an original story, it had so many compelling characters and was told beautifully. Jane Austen would be proud.

    12. This is one of my favorite P & P variations. Lydia Bennet finally gets it right. She changes enough to change her destiny.

    13. One of the best I have read out of hundredsDid not expect this book to have so much emotion in it . Actually I read it a couple of years ago and it didn't seem as good as it was now . Mainly because I read it out of context . I had not read the first book yet . I found myself laughing and crying which I never do . It was a delightful experience

    14. Lydia's storyFirst story to make me cry in a long time. Characters are well rounded. Villains get there just desserts! Can't wait for the next book!

    15. THE TROUBLE TO CHECK HER by Maria GraceLike quite a few people, I first read this when it was posted weekly as a Work in Progress on Jane Austen Variations. It was then known as Mrs. Drummond's School for Girls. The events follow on directly from those in Mistaking Her Character. You don't have to have read that first but it does help to set the context. Instead of Wickham and Lydia being forced to marry, Darcy pays for her to attend a school for "fallen girls" for two years. Lydia is given the [...]

    16. Very enjoyableIn this novel you actually got to do what it was like to be Lydia Bennett you saw how she was led to believe that the only thing that she had with her looks and a giggly girlish personality . I look forward to other novels with other characters and hope that they do as well coming out of the shell is Lydia did
