Review of My Own Mr. Darcy

MY OWN MR. DARCY may be purchased here.

Karey White

After Elizabeth Barrett watches the PRIDE AND PREJUDICE movie starring Matthew Macfadyen, she falls for Mr. Darcy and decides not to settle for anything less than her own Mr. Darcy.  As a consequence of this, Elizabeth hasn't gone out on a date with anyone more than once or twice.  Then her roommate gets her to agree to go on ten dates with the next man, who asks her out.  The next man, who asks her out is Chad, a nice science teacher and swim coach.  Later, Elizabeth meets Matt Dawson, who looks like Mr. Darcy and seems to act like Mr. Darcy.  

Since PRIDE AND PREJUDICE is my favorite book, I enjoy reading sequels, reimaginings, and everything else dealing with it.  MY OWN MR. DARCY is a delightful read with a quirky, determined heroine, with whom I can identify with.  What lover of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE hasn't wished for her own Mr. Darcy?   Chad is a great guy, who is very kind and resilient.  While Matt has some similarities to Mr. Darcy, he, also, has some negative character traits.  Even so, I felt a little sorry for Matt, in the end.  This book reminded me of the Garth Brooks' song "Unanswered Prayers".

All in all, MY OWN MR. DARCY is an enjoyable read, which I recommend.

NOTE:  I received this book in return for an impartial review.
