Book Summary:

After being dragged to the 2005 movie Pride and Prejudice by her mother, sixteen-year-old Elizabeth’s life changes when Matthew Macfadyen’s Mr. Darcy appears on the screen. Lizzie falls hard and makes a promise to herself that she will settle for nothing less than her own Mr. Darcy. This ill-advised pledge threatens to ruin any chance of finding true love. During the six intervening years, she has refused to give any interested suitors a chance. They weren’t Mr. Darcy enough.

Coerced by her roommate, Elizabeth agrees to give the next interested guy ten dates before she dumps him. That guy is Chad, a kind and thoughtful science teacher and swim coach. While she’s dating Chad, her dream comes true in the form of a wealthy bookstore owner named Matt Dawson, who looks and acts like her Mr. Darcy. Of course she has to follow her dream. But as Elizabeth simultaneously dates a regular guy and the dazzling Mr. Dawson, she’s forced to re-evaluate what it was she loved about Mr. Darcy in the first place.




So cute!  What Jane Austen obsessed fan hasn’t dreamed of having a Mr. Darcy of their own?  This was such an enjoyable read that I highly recommend.

A squeaky clean, sweet read that is perfect for 21st Century Jane Austen lovers like me!  This one goes on my keeper shelf.  I love books that I can recommend without hesitation to anyone be it my teenager, neighbor or grandma.  Even those who have never read Pride and Prejudice or seen the movie (surely there aren’t many of you out there!) are sure to enjoy this clean romance.
