Product Description

Whatever happened to Caroline Bingley after her brother and unrequited love interest married a Bennet sister? Join me in this story of redemptive love and the healing of broken dreams.
Caroline Bingley, beyond frustrated with her brother, Charles and Mr. Darcy both proposing to the Bennet sisters, dreads their upcoming nuptials. For three years her sole focus has been on attaining a marriage proposal from one Fitzwilliam Darcy of Pemberley, only to be foiled by a country miss with ‘fine eyes’. Adrift and not sure of her place in life, she meets the mysterious and devastatingly handsome Lord Nathan, who equally vexes and intrigues her.

Lord Nathan Kerr, third in line to a Dukedom, had a well-earned reputation as a Rake. He cast all that and his noble title aside to become Mr. Darcy’s vicar in Kympton, finding contentment in leading his small flock and doing the Lord’s work. His plan for a quiet, country life is thrown into upheaval when he meets the fiery Miss Bingley. Can he reconcile his rising desire for the spoiled miss with how a vicar’s wife ‘should’ behave?

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Caroline Wins 2 March 2017
By JA Lowcountry - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this story and certainly liked the hero. Very dashing and romantic. I just had a hard time with the 360 degree turn in Caroline's personality. I also didn't care for how things changed at the end to give her exactly what she wanted. If she was going to change, I would have preferred an ending where she truly became a vicar's wife.

I am a fan of secondary character fiction. This is a lovely story for Caroline whom everyone loves to hate. Really well done.

4.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly enjoyable read! 1 April 2017
By Nissa @ Of Pens and Pages - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I didn’t now what to expect when I first heard of this story. I’m not Caroline’s biggest fan, but there’s always been a tiny part of me that wanted to know what happened to her after Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy married their respective Bennet brides.

And color me surprised. I enjoyed this story very much! It was interesting to see how Ms. Barr would write what life was like for Caroline after her brother’s engagement to Jane. She started out as every bit the character we got to know in Pride and Prejudice—shallow, judgmental, and has a penchant for looking down on other people. She finds a match in Lord Nathan Kerr, a reformed rake, and the current vicar at Kympton.

Like Darcy and Elizabeth, Caroline and Nathan’s love story was not without its bumps along the way. The two first meet in London at the theatre where it was easy to see the attraction between the two. Caroline expected him to call on her, but when he didn’t, she tried to forget him, not once thinking they’d cross paths again.

They both had their inner battles and reservations. Nathan has heard of Caroline and her goal in securing a good match, and Caroline has heard of Nathan’s past reputation as a rake. They both fight their attraction, and in the process, ended up arguing at almost every encounter. Nathan, like Elizabeth towards Darcy, was quick to judge Caroline, and Caroline never fails to fights back. I’ll be honest and say it bothered me when Nathan judged Caroline and accused her of such terrible things. And will you look at that? I’m actually sympathizing with a character I’ve always disliked! It shows the lady in question has made some progress in trying to be a better person.

There was a lot of introspective moments for Caroline as she realizes how she’s been acting before and she sees how people really see her. She draws strength from the memory of her grandmama and the scriptures from the bible her grandmama spoke to her when she was still alive. Nathan was like her, too. After fighting in the war, he became despondent and found distraction in vices and debauchery. With the help of her brother, the Duke, he found enlightenment in the word of the Lord.

As she aims to change for the better, Caroline gains new friends, those of whom are unexpected yet makes total sense. It reminded me of Kitty, who eventually improved for the better when she found better company and a more calming influence.

Nathan is a man of the cloth, but there are moments when you can still see hints of mischief and flirtatious actions. I couldn’t help but giggle when he made a move on Caroline. I giggled every time he did!

Although the story focuses on Caroline and Nathan’s story, we still get a glimpse of our beloved characters. We see how the Bingley siblings are with each other, how sweet and in tune with each other Darcy and Elizabeth are. Those two never fail to put a smile on my face!

Caroline reminded me of the Cinderella sequel where Cinderella’s step-sister, Anastasia, falls in love with a baker. She finds love in the most unexpected place, and has found happiness and contentment along with it. There’s nothing I love more than character growth! This book has made me a happy happy girl.

Caroline is a clean, Christian historical romance fiction told in the third POV, but alternates from Caroline’s perspective to Nathan’s. I think it’s a successful variation when I found myself cheering for Caroline and hoping she finds her own happily ever after. If you’re looking for a quick and insightful read, you might enjoy Caroline.
4.0 out of 5 stars A Different Caroline 18 April 2017
By Rita (From Pemberley to Milton) - Published on
Did you ever think about what was Miss Bingley’s reaction to Darcy’s engagement? Can you imagine what it must have been like to realise everything she fought for during the last years of her life had been for nothing? What about her future? Did she ever get married? Or ended up an old spinster? Did she let go of her feelings of superiority towards the Bennet sisters?
Sue Barr clearly thought about all these questions and wrote a delicious novel describing Caroline Bingley’s life after the double engagement of Darcy and Bingley 🙂
I was never a fan of Caroline Bingley, but lately I find stories about her quite interesting and Sue Barr definitely made me want to read more about Caroline. In fact, there is so much potential about Miss Bingley’s character that I wonder why we don’t have more stories about her, Sue Barr clearly saw all this potential and used it in an exceptional manner.
Caroline is a romance whose main character is Caroline Bingley but it isn’t just a book about a secondary character of Pride & Prejudice, it is a book about second chances, lessons learnt and personal growth. This story tells us how Caroline took the news that shattered her life and how she moved on, but also how others continued to view her and react to her actions. These two aspects made the book very real because life makes us who we are, it shapes our behaviours and personalities, and some events may alter us into someone else, but it doesn’t erase who we were and the perception others have of us. That perception will only change if we change ourselves and if our new behaviours are different from what they used to be, and that is what happens to Miss Bingley in this book,she is brought to life as an imperfect human being who is forced to grow with life’s blows.
But as I mentioned earlier, this is a romance, so it’s not all about inner growth. Caroline’s love interest in this book will be Lord Nathan..err..I mean Mr. Kerr..or shall I say both? Let’s just say you would never picture Caroline with someone with this profession, but neither would you imagine someone with this profession exactly like him. I did like to know why he chose it though, it made me understand why someone with that background and personality ended up as a vicar. He is a charming man, and should I say too good for Caroline? Or is that my prejudice speaking? He is indeed an interesting character and I loved his interactions with Caroline but I would have prefered for them to have a different ending… don’t worry, there is a HEA, I would just prefer it if it wasn’t so perfect.
If you want a secondary character story which is fast to read and a page turner, this book is for you! I’m sure you’ll enjoy it between two ODC books 🙂
4.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed Barr’s take on Caroline 23 March 2017
By Anna L. Horner - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed Barr’s take on Caroline, from her temper tantrums to her memories of her grandmamma — and the advice she soon realizes she must take to heart. I also loved Lord Nathan, the reformed rake who still struggles with his memories of the war and the behavior he put behind him when he took orders. I thought he was pretty harsh to Caroline, but getting to see things through his point of view made me understand him better. It was entertaining to see their evolution over the course of this short novel. I was so wrapped up in their troubles that I didn’t mind the quick character development or that Mr. Darcy/Elizabeth and Mr. Bingley/Jane take a backseat as their wedding preparations are underway.

Barr does a good job handling the Christian elements of the novel, from the Scripture passages Caroline remembers from her grandmamma to Lord Nathan’s prayers and counseling. It made sense given Lord Nathan’s occupation, and it wasn’t too heavy-handed. The only minor quibble I had with the book is that the ending seemed too convenient given the character development throughout the novel.

Overall, Caroline is a strong start to the series, and readers will be happy that there isn’t a cliffhanger ending.
