Teaser Synopsis: When he meets Elizabeth, Mr. Darcy is already courting another young lady and now, in addition to his original qualms, Darcy has a real matter of honor to overcome...
First thoughts after finishing: "Oh my Mr. Darcy...I love you so!!!"
I know that I read a lot of P&P variations and some people (RYAN) often wonder how I can keep reading one right after the other and not get bored. Well, let me tell you something, if the author makes Mr. Darcy come alive,keeps Lizzy vibrant and young, and stays true to Austen's voice then I will keep on reading these little gems. They're a way to continue to re-experience Austen's marvelous characters but with fascinating and often times humorous twists!! I have to say that Mary is a wonderful writer and she just has that magic touch that makes me fall in love with each re-telling she offers to her readers. This book absolutely won me over with the fresh ,creative plot and the flirtatious teasing that Darcy and Lizzy tossed back and forth to each other. Let me read you a small part that of course made me swoon a bit and wish oh so much that Darcy was writing this letter to me.
Recommend? Absolutely! This is one of my favorite P&P variations to date and for anyone that remotely loves Austen and her regency stories would have a great time immersing themselves into Darcy and Lizzy's life for an afternoon!!
