    One thought on “Wish Upon a Star”

    1. “A while ago, I wished upon a shooting star that one day I’d find someone to love… and now holding you in my arms makes me realize that wishes really do come true.” Sherry Soule, Smash Into YouThis was quick, clean and much better than what I thought. Although non-canon, it was a small window of time where Jane and Charles attempted to help reconcile the failed relationship between Darcy and Elizabeth. It took a helping hand, with a key, to ensure our dear couple had sufficient time to d [...]

    2. Only 50 pages long this is a slice out of the canon of P&P told in variation. Hunsford with its proposal has come and gone. Lydia's situation dealt with while Bingley and Jane have married. With Mrs. Bennet visiting daily it is a rare occasion that finds Elizabeth having some alone time with Jane. Finding Elizabeth sitting in a window seat and gazing out at the stars, Jane queries if she is making a wish. This leads to a discussion of Elizabeth's feeling towards Mr. Darcy and further, to the [...]

    3. This is a clean story. There you go this is a P&P What if sequel. Set after Jane & Mr. Bingley have married. (but not ODC) Lizzy is moping around Meryton and wishing Mr. Darcy loved her. Jane and Bingley are moving to Meryton but Lizzy doesn't want to come with them. (this really annoyed me at the Bingley's as opposed to making it seem they are fleeing Bennets why didn't Jane ask Lizzy to love with her IMMEDIATELY upon returning?) After the Bingley's move away Charles has to beg Lizzy to [...]

    4. 5 starsA very sweet, funny, low angst short story. D&E were stubborn as usual, and refused to approach each other about their feelings. So Jane and Charles, who had been married for a while decided to help them along. And the fun begun.Highly recommended if a reader is looking for a short and sweet story about ODC mending their complicated relationship.

    5. Disappointing. Stiff dialogue. Not sure when exactly Darcy and Elizabeth came to an understanding. Plot feels very contrived. Not much emotion. I have always loved Wegner's stories and I did not find this one very satisfying.

    6. In this Pride and Prejudice variation! Bingley and Jane are married but Darcy has not spoken with Elizabeth since he rescued Lydia. The Bingley's can't handle living so close to Mrs Bennet and they move to Derbyshire. Jane is expecting and is not adjusting well to her new home. At Bingley's request, Elizabeth comes to visit. Some matchmaking including being locked in a room forces conversation and starts Darcy and Elizabeth towards their own happily ever after.

    7. 3.5 stars rounded to 4. I enjoyed this tale of Elizabeth and Darcy getting together after Bingley and Jane's marriage. I enjoyed having Bingley and Jane conspire to bring them together. I really didn't understand why both of them were so stubborn. This was well written with only a few grammatical errors (my copy actually had a redline change). I would recommend this as a fun quick escape read.

    8. Wish Upon a StarEnjoyable story. Elizabeth has been wishing on a Star ever since she returned from Pemberley. After Bingley and Jane's wedding, she lost hope that Darcy still loved her, but she kept wishing. When Jane and Bingley move to Derbyshire, Jane realizes just how much Elizabeth loves Darcy. Both she and Charles design to bring the two together. As Jane nears her confinement, Charles asks her to come to stay because Jane misses her family and will need help when the baby comes. Traveling [...]

    9. I gave this 3 stars because I find people get really upset if you give something less than 3 stars. If I felt I could get away with it, I would have given this 2. I found this book lifeless and dreary. E & D have a level of emotional immaturity that left me wanting them to stay apart. I did not feel any spark or romance here but hoping someone else finds it.

    10. SweetIt's a quick read, not complicated not in the least. The characters were characters were familiar with places pretty much what we were familiar with except for little trip farther north than Pemberly, and the outcome was happy. Nothing unexpected nothing to write home about

    11. I can't help but wonder if this writer is writing in a foreign language and then using Google translate to translate her writing into English. I'm sorry to be harsh, but the rhetorical choices in this book are bizarre. It also felt unpolished and stilted--and in need of a good editor.

    12. Short and sweet I love the more pro-active Jane and Bingley. I'm sad there was not much time for some character development for Anne and Georgiana.

    13. Sweet storyQuite a few typos and grammar issues, but the story was good. I was glad when I saw this novella. I like this author.

    14. Don't Waste Your MoneyThis e-book has so many grammatical errors and edits that weren't fixed. It's not a very good storyline and just poorly written.

    15. Good storyThe story is good, but much too short. Editing isn't complete. I would enjoy an extended version with more detail.
