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.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and loved the Pride and Prejudice tie-ins. It was a cute story that plucked at my emotions and made me think at times. The characters were well done. Lizzie was fun and quirky. The decision she had between the two guys kept me guessing, though I know who I was rooting for. I liked how some of the characters gave some really good advice. There were a few proofreading errors, and I considered docking half a star for that, but in the end decided that all the things I loved about the book outweighed the few proofreading errors. This book was a wonderful read!
Rating: 5 stars – I loved it!!!
