Review from netGalley

netGalley keeps track of galleys, which are uncorrected preview copies that are printed up for reviewers a few months before the actual books are printed for publication, because reviewers need "lead time" to read the book before they publish a review. netGalley does reviews, though it doesn't seem to give negative ones, so take this with a grain of salt:

The Darcys & the Bingleys
By: Altman, Marsha
Publisher Name: Sourcebooks, Inc.
Inspired by a tale of first impressions and true romance in Pride and Prejudice, this is debut author Marsha Altman's take on what happens after the proposals. The Darcys & the Bingleys begins with a rare look into the friendship between Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley--two men that have been friends for years and have marked milestones in their lives together. A few days before their double wedding, Bingley comes to Darcy for advice on the most pressing of matters: what is expected of him on the wedding night? This funny escapade is just one of the adventures Marsha Altman takes readers on with two best friends about to be married to two devoted sisters. With plot twists and turns, appearances by familiar characters from Pride and Prejudice, Marsha Altman has created a charming continuation of Jane Austen's work.
