    1. Leenie Brown has always been a girl with an active imagination, which, while growing up, was a both an asset, providing many hours of fun as she played out stories, and a liability, when her older sister and aunt would tell her frightening tales At one time, they had her convinced Dracula lived in the trunk at the end of the bed she slept in when visiting her grandparents Although it has been years since she cowered in her bed in her grandparents basement, she still has an imagination which occasionally runs away with her, and she feeds it now as she did then by reading Her heroes, when growing up, were authors, and the worlds they painted with words were and still are her favourite playgrounds She was that child, under the covers with the flashlight, reading until the wee hours of the morningd pretending not to be tired the next day so her mother wouldn t find out Today, she fits, or is that squeezes, reading in around caring for her family of two fabulous most of the time teenage boys and one sweet and thoughtful husband while working full time as a junior high teacher.In addition to feeding her imagination, she also exercises it by writing While writing has been an activity she has dabbled in over the years, it blossomed into a full fledged obsession when she stumbled upon the world of Jane Austen Fan Fiction As the second born of five sisters, just like Elizabeth Bennet, her imagination was soon captured And now, she spends much time in the regency world playing with the characters from her favourite Jane Austen novels and a few that are of her own creation.When she is not traipsing down a trail in an attempt to keep up with her imagination, she resides in the beautiful province of Nova Scotia She is a regular contributor to Peculiar Ramblings, a Jane Austen Fan Fiction newsletter.

    2. For Peace of Mind: A Pride and Prejudice Variation begins with Elizabeth being sent, along with Jane, to London after the Netherfield ball and her rejection of Mr. Collins’ proposal “for her own good and her father’s peace of mind."On a shopping excursion, the ladies stop at a tea shop for chocolate and scones. Unbeknownst to them, this particular establishment is frequented by just the men who left varying, yet lasting, impressions on the Bennet sisters while visiting their home county of [...]

    3. “There’s nothing more contagious than the laughter of young children; it doesn’t even have to matter what they’re laughing about.” Criss Jami, KillosophyThis was a delightful read, clean, quirky and with minimal angst. Although I enjoyed it, it did not have that staunch Regency feel that we are so accustomed to in our JAFF. As one reviewer stated, it sounded too modern. If you didn’t already know the time period, I think you would have trouble establishing the actual period by simply [...]

    4. For Peace of Mind.Very sweet, entertaining story by Leenie Brown who brought us that wonderful Oxford Cottage. This story starts when Lizzie is sent to London with Jane after she refuses Mr. Collins silly proposal. Aunt Gardiner, Jane and Lizzie fun into Mr. Darcy, Colonel Fitzwilliam, and Mr. Bingley in a coffee/sweet shop and it turns out the men are all familiar with Mr. Gardiner, as business associates. The romances all get on track with a lot of comic stories and some angst but really is a [...]

    5. A sweet story full of love and humour.Elizabeth's refusal of Collins precipitates her being sent to London with Jane for her father's peace of mind. A chance encounter with Darcy and Colonel F has Elizabeth see Darcy in a new light, which continues to brighten for them both as time and events progess. There are also some rather interesting ties between the Fitzwilliams and the Gardiners, but most especially between the Bingley and Gardiners. But nothing can stop Darcy and Elizabeth this time, no [...]

    6. Just a Lovely StoryThis book was the one that introduced me to the writing of Leenie Brown. It remains one of my all time favourites, and is one of my go to books when I need a lift. It starts with Lizzy being sent to town with her sister Jane after Mr Collins failed proposal. Lizzy, Jane and Aunt Gardiner meet Mr Darcy and Colonel Fitzwilliam by accident in a tea shop and the story progresses from there. The Gardiner children are much involved in the story and are delightful. There is much in t [...]

    7. Love is in the air!! Love is all around!! John Paul John and Wet Wet Wet’s songs’ titles totally reflect this book. This book is about love and not only the love between Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. There is a lot of love to share!I received a Advance Reader Copy in exchange of an honest review. I got the book some time ago but I made the mistake of not passing the file to my kindle and it was still waiting on my email. Fortunately, I found it, read it and I had a great time:)When [...]

    8. 3.5 starsThe language in this story is modern and I must say the characters and the repartee seemed much like a gathering at a fraternity party at times. Everyone was very open about their feelings and about their observations and then their plans. I found little angst, of which I like a lot. So, if you like a perfectly sweet and straight forward romance with few misunderstanding and little, if any, pitfalls on the way to HEA, then this is the story for you.As we read in the book description or [...]

    9. A different path for ODCA delightful novella.My only suggestion would have to rewrite the incident in the park. Wickham would have been wary of Lizzy after what happened at the bookstore and not allow the time and conversation between Lizzy and Jane. I think I would have rather seen Jane use a rock or some knitting needles on W and have Lizzy finish Mr. Wickedman off.Great read.

    10. Uncle Gardiner Bought Out the Bingleys!This is perhaps my favorite P&P variation. It is clean and yet contains excitement in dealing with Wickham and Lady Catherine. Ms Brown knows how to engage you in the plotline and keep your interest throughout.

    11. I received an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review. Anything you read here is solely my opinion based upon reading this book. I’m going to start off by saying this is the first book that I have read by this author and it was the best choice I ever made. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Ms. Brown takes P&P and makes it in a way her own. For Peace of Mind starts off with Elizabeth and Jane Bennet heading off to London. What could chase these ladies away after the Netherfield ball yo [...]

    12. Received an advanced copy in exchange for an honest reviewSo to begin with this is not a very long variation at all. It is less than 200 pages. I believe my kindle said it was 190 pages all together. So this story starts with the Gardiners, Jane and Lizzy traveling to London because Elizabeth refused Mr. Collins offer of marriage and her mother is very vexed with her. Mr. Bennet writes to the Gardiners and asks them to up their visit and take the two oldest back to London with them. During a sho [...]

    13. In this version Elizabeth and Jane are sent to London to stay with the Gardiners after Elizabeth turns down Collins proposal of marriage. Darcy does much business with Mr Gardiner and Bingleys business associate is Mr Gardiner , therefore, the Gardiners hold high opinions of both men. Mrs Gardiner convinces Elizabeth to give Darcy a fresh start and forgive his impertinent remark on her beauty. Darcy and Bingley quickly meet the Bennet ladies again in London and realizing their cheapside relation [...]

    14. I have read a lot of Pride and Prejudice variations and this one just seemed a little too full of fan service for me. It was rushing to get to relationships and rushing to change the tone of loved characters with no lead up or explaination. I felt like too much was trying to happen too quickly

    15. For Peace of Mind: A Pride and Prejudice VariationEnjoyable story. Mild angst with Wickham and Lady Catherine around. Happy marriages occur when love comes to London and Herefordshire. Lizzy, Jane, Charlotte, Anne, and Mary all find a match. The business connections in this story helped make this extra enjoyable, plus the Gardiner children's affections for Lizzy. Darcy may be called out by her loving nephew! Everybody is against Caroline which made this extra special. Good read.

    16. In this Pride and Prejudice variation, after Elizabeth rejects Collins marriage proposal she is sent to stay at the Gardiners accompanied by Jane. Where, while at shopping one day, they meet Mr. Darcy.Really enjoyed this especially the conversations between the Colonel, Darcy and Bingley.

    17. Joyful readEverything you could want in a story. Suspense, hope, laughter,and romance. I loved learning more about each of the characters and their personalities. The best of all is Darcy and Elizabeth! I can't wait for more

    18. Bland.Very very bland. Every one possible gets a happy ever after and the traditional bad guy is in the book for about four pages.
