    1. 4 stars!Review, Excerpt, and Giveaway at Of Pens and Pages.“Gossip, as usual, was one-third right and two-thirds wrong.” - L.M. Montgomery, Chronicles of AvonleaMendacity and Mourning is funny, a little raunchy, and a whole lot of absurd (the good kind), but the story is not too unimaginable if you consider nosy neighbors, wagging tongues, and idle minds in Regency England.Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth’s story was not an easy path to a happily ever after as they faced rumors and misunderstanding [...]


    2. I posted a review after reading this book on a fan fiction site. I wanted to reread it so as to be honest in posting a review for the now-published book. But the review is the one I posted for the unpublished book. The beginning events remind one of the game of Whisper Down the Lane during which words and phrases are twisted, turned and added to or taken from to give one a piece of news totally lacking any resemblance to the original news.“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a gossip i [...]


    3. I read this 7 months ago when it was on a fan fiction site and loved it with a few caveats. This is an improved version of the same story, and I no longer have any hesitation in giving this 5 stars. I'm repeating most of my original review here (minus my criticisms), which still applies.This is a thoroughly enjoyable and amusing Pride and Prejudice "what if" where Anne de Bourgh is proclaimed to be dead, yet a mystery surrounds her supposed demise. Lady C. has come to London, refuses to allow an [...]


    4. This is a fun and unique P&P what if that have the Fitzwilliams and deBoughs acting the fool. When Darcy arrives in Meryton he is identified as the Grieving groom mourning the death of his fiance and cousin Miss Anne deBourgh. He becomes good friends with Lizzy Bennet as they chaperone Jane & Bingley. When he leaves Meryton to deal with some family problems (view spoiler)[Ann is very alive, and married (hide spoiler)] Lizzy is immediately turned upon by her meddlesome, gossip mongering n [...]


    5. Review originally posted on Diary of an EccentricJ.L. Ashton knocked it out of the park with her second variation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Her latest novel, Mendacity & Mourning, was so very different from other variations I’ve read. From the mysterious death of Anne de Bourgh that has Mr. Darcy known around Meryton as the “Grieving Groom,” to the odious (and odorous) Mr. Collins as a gossipmonger who causes all sorts of trouble for the Darcys, Fitzwilliams, and Bennet [...]


    6. "Oh Mr. Collins!" What can go wrong did go wrong in this absolutely hilarious tongue-in-cheek tale of Darcy's pursuit for a wife which will have you laughing and cringing throughout! Lady Catherine is in high dundgeon and has ordered Mr. Collins to 'vacate her lands and leave her in peace'. All he really knows is Lady Catherine has stated that her daughter Anne 'is dead to her'! He takes that literally and spreads the news throughout Meryton accordingly. All Darcy and the Fitzwilliam family know [...]


    7. “When it comes to gossip, I have to readily admit men are as guilty as women.” Marilyn MonroeIt all started with a misunderstanding by Mr. Collins as he overheard a comment by Lady Catherine. Well, like a loosened pebble at the top of a hill, it started slowly, but gained speed as it descended the hill, taking debris with it, until it was a full-fledged avalanche. “Strong minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, weak minds discuss people.” SocratesBefore I read this book, I had [...]


    8. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. The author did a great job keeping the reader interested in the plot and at times, you had a few great laughs, especially from Colonel Richard and his father. Naturally, you also got to see the true side of Lady Catherine DeBourgh however in the end, she came around to accept her daughter's family. As you read, remember how important Thursdays are for Robert Fitzwilliam and Mr. Hurst. I thought that part was hilarious. Georgianna wondered about that and didn't un [...]



    9. This Pride and Prejudice variation could be renamed - Who ever made their family ridiculous. There were so many misunderstandings and over the top relatives that there was no real reason for angst in this story. Darcy is visiting Netherfield under different circumstances from canon and meets Elizabeth while trying to avoid family drama. Idle gossip from Mr. Collins and Mr. Wickham of course seal his fate so that no one in town likes him but Elizabeth. After each determines that there is more to [...]


    10. Misunderstandings and complex situations abound in this newest JAFF offering from J. L. Ashton. This book did start off a bit slow for me but it did pick up once I got about thirty percent into it. The Fitzwilliam and Darcy families end up having a crisis where Anne de Bourgh is dead but not dead. Darcy thinks that Elizabeth is engaged to her Uncle Gardiner (he doesn't realize that he's her uncle) and Collins is an idiot like usual. I really enjoyed this book even though some parts of it did dra [...]


    11. Misunderstanding and rumours started by Collins cause problems for Darcy and the Fitzwilliam families, especially in Darcy's hopeful relationship with Elizabeth Bennet.I liked the portrayal of all the Fitzwilliam family especially the Colonel but was really disappointed that Mary was married off to Collins, a big no for me. I had to then quickly scan the book to the end to see if she would be saved but no.


    12. It's disconcerting the manner in which modern slang is tossed in randomly. The story is okay. Misunderstandings abound and no one speaks with clarity or sense. Except for Richard who is disgustingly course and of no use to the story other than to make crass, crude remarks. If you enjoy that sort of talk, read away.


    13. Mendacity and MourningCleverly written with hilarious dialogue and scenes throughout the book. Misunderstandings, rumors, outright lies, and distorted truths help set the tone of this book. Misconstrued words spoken as truths cause some major stumbling blocks for some of the major characters in the story, but as each falsehood is refuted, the truth finding appears. I loved both Elizabeth and Darcy's determination to find happiness once misconceptions about Elizabeth Bennet marital status is stra [...]


    14. 4 1/2 starsWhile this was very good, well written and original, something was just missing to make it a five star read. The craziness of the Fitzwilliam family was a lot of fun, and seeing Elizabeth and Darcy starting as fast friends is always a joy. Her modern book, A Searing Acquaintance is one of my absolute favorites. I highly suggest it!


    15. Fantastic I didn't find it as repetitive as others have , based off of the reviews here. It was very good, nicely written. A complex series of events leading from Anne De B. marrying a painter. There was a real connection between the characters and you could feel the chemistry. This is one of my new favorites. Highly recommended.


    16. Bravo to JL Ashton!I have read many P&P variations, but this one is one of my favorites. So many laugh-out-loud moments, yet still very romantic. I loved the variation in all of the characters, except Jane's. Loved, loved, loved the relationship between Darcy and his cousin Fitzwilliam. Would be great to see this version on screen.


    17. Compelling and humorous You will definitely get a few chuckles throughout this well written story. It is not without drama and there are many misunderstandings but the love between Darcy and Elizabeth prevails.


    18. 3 stars for half the book.If only an editor had helped pare down this variation by at last half. First to go would be Richard "the breast man's" endless juvenile sexual jokes. Then every moronic, mild "mutton-monger" insult and unfortunate rotten fruit comparison: gone. After those deletions every reference to 'clouds' after the first one. Oh, and "mayhaps" doesn't evoke the era; it is just plain silly. Rats, I almost forgot the excruciatingly long Epilogue. Cut all that, and you have a decently [...]


    19. Fun and angstyI usually find that too much angst in these novels gets on my nerves, but this one made sense. I did get a bit frustrated with one trial after another, but the way they played out was unexpected. Love this author.


    20. AmusingA different take on the Darcy and Elizabeth story. More about the families and their idiosyncrasies than most other variations.


    21. This book went on a little longer than it needed to, but it was enjoyable nonetheless. I feel sorry for anyone that gets stuck married to Mr. Collins!!


    22. Don't miss this P&P variation! Hilariously fun, pokes propriety in the eye as it respects it, a true gem to read! A fun twist to the story enjoyed this thoroughly!!


    23. Funny and fast to read!This p and p remake is funny and fast to read looking forward to reading more from JL Ashston don't miss this one!


    24. Great JAFF readLoved the humor and the lesser angst of this one. Richard has me giggling as usual. I love seeing more AHA authors on amazon too. 4.5 stars!


    25. Grand ReadWonderful novel. Superb Characters and a superior plot line. I will recommend it with no reservations. Will definitely read again.


    26. Great funThis is one of the more humorous stories especially when Colonel Fitzwilliam and Darcy get together. Events spin out of control quickly when Mr Collins tells everyone that Anne has died and Lady Catherine locks up the estate and hides in London. Gossip spread by footmen, preacher, and even Wickham create a situation where both Darcy and Elizabeth have their reputation tarnished.Interesting take on the classic story.
