Book Launch: The Trouble to Check Her — 38 Comments

  1. Congratulations! I am so excited for you!

    I do have a question: Why do they have a somewhat different description of the book on Amazon in Kindle form as they do for paperback? Perhaps that is just until the Kindle pre-orders are over?

    Again, congrats! I hope it is a great success as it is a wonderful book!!!

  2. Congratulations! So happy this is out at last! I loved reading every word in the serialized version, as this is my favorite book in the genre! Lydia surprised us all!

  3. I greatly enjoyed reading this online, and congratulate you on its publication. It was good to see Lydia mature over the course of the story, and I was quite pleased with the ending. It’s nice to know that even Lydia is not beyond redemption.

  4. I am so pleased this tale of Lydia and Mrs Drummond is coming out on Kindle. When it came out in instalments I devoured each weekly part and awaited the next episode with great anticipation. Thank you and congratulations.

  5. Yeah!! I read this when it was posted slowly… but love reading things all together. Just bought it so I can enjoy it again. Just randomly… it says on the kindle version cover, the queen of rosings park book 2… Have I missed something? I don’t remember a book 1, and I can’t fins it on amazon.

  6. Congratulations on the release of your newest creation. It is a wonderful story for a character I too did not like, but became dear to me.

  7. Congrats! I enjoyed following this story during it’s development, and I look forward to reading it as a novel!

  8. I love this story. She did indeed have a story that should be told, and you did it justice. Lovely book! It is up on Nook too. I checked. 🙂 Please exclude me from the drawing. Happy release day!!!

  9. I’m glad that you have completed this book. I enjoyed reading it in installments. I would love to own this book on my Kindle. Thank you!

  10. I have always had some sympathy for Lydia. Had she been born a boy, her father would have spared no expense. Her gender condemned her in his eyes. Her mother was always overprotective, understanding that. Her mother had notoriously poor judgement but she at least did not turn her back on her child because of that child’s gender.

  11. Congratulations, I’ve been waiting for this for awhile. Glad it’s now for sale. I enjoyed this story when you posted it online.

  12. Congratulations on the book. I have been waiting for it. I decided not to read it in segments so I can’t wait to get a copy.

  13. I agree with you that Lydia holds no interest for me. I ope you expound more on how she changed you. I can easily imagine her in your head complaining unmercifully. Thank you for the giveaway.

  14. I started reading this when you were halfway through so I really look forward to reading the complete story as I enjoyed the part I read. Thanks for the giveaway offer Maria 😃

  15. Congratulations on your book! I can’t wait to read it. She was not my favorite character at all, however this makes me want to read her story.

  16. Congratulations! It’s been a long time coming! Imagine Lydia being sympathetic and loved! It is such a lovely story of redemption and shows that nobody is beyond help, given the correct help.
    Well, perhaps not Mr Bennet!

  17. I’ve been watching and waiting for this to come out. I was one of the few who didn’t read all of the installments. I read just enough to make it torture to wait a week for the next installment and decided to just wait for the entire book came out. And I’m so excited now and can’t wait to read it. Congrats!!!

  18. Maria, you have done the impossible by writing a believable story in which Lydia grows into a likeable and worthwhile character. I never would have believed it, had I not read your posts. Thanks for sharing.

  19. I admit to finding this intriguing, and I never ready secondary character stories. The mention two sisters to b married, Mr. Darcy, Lizxy, and Lady Catherine. Is the story a follow-up to a previous book? If so, what? Could you please give me some background as to how we com to this starting point? Do the other characters have storylines that run through this book? Knowing a little more, I feel certain I might enjoy this story.

    • This is the sequel to Mistaking Her Character. The most relevant background is that Darcy has prevented Lydia from eloping and instead of forcing her to marry Wickham has sent her to a school for wayward girls in hopes of reforming her character. The book is primarily about Lydia, though Darcy and Lizzy show up at the end.

      Does that help?

      • I think it might also help those who haven’t read the first one to just know that what they “know” about the Bennets is a bit different. Mr. Bennet is a physician who works exclusively for Lady Catherine de Bourgh in the first novel, though he’s moved on by the end, and he’s not exactly what you would call “benevolent”, especially towards his daughters.

  20. I like many others thought I could ever like Lydia, you made her come to life and gave her substance and a voice. Congratulations, can’t wait to ‘re read this again.

  21. Congratulations ! So happy to see this story in print. Wonderful excerpt. I am not usually a Lydia fan but I love this story!

  22. Thank you for your newly released book. I’m saving it for next week as I recover from knee replacement surgery. I’ve never been unhappy about any of your stories, except when I’m disappointed that some are to short and I’m not ready to leave the characters. I’d probably enjoy reading your long grocery list. 🙂

  23. I would love to know if there will be a third book in this series. It seems like Lizzie, Lydia and Mary are happily settled but Kitty still has a story waiting for her and the difference in the perception of Jane’s “goodness” has a story to tell. Also, the dynamics with all the girl’s relationships with Doctor Bennett and Mrs. Bennett (Jane and Lizzie’s stepmother) needs some kind of resolution. I have enjoyed all of your books and look forward to many more.
