Suddenly Mrs Darcy

Suddenly Mrs Darcy by Jenetta James

An enjoyable and interesting twist on Pride and Prejudice, Suddenly Mrs Darcy will keep you reading late into the night. Written in a charming nineteenth-century style, this new story is told from Elizabeth's point of view. Although it may seem a little unbelievable at first, Elizabeth's lively character and the excellent writing soon makes it convincing.

In this novel, Elizabeth is caught in what looks like a compromising position with Mr Darcy. She quickly finds herself married and thrown into the deep end as the new mistress of Pemberley. However, Dark secrets seem to abound. Who is the strange woman Darcy visits, for example? Why doesn't he like Wickham? His condescending attitude to her family also annoys Elizabeth.

The love stor between the characters is well-developed and involving. James doesn't change the essential characters of Lizzy and Darcy, which I liked.

Most Jane Austen fans will appreciate this take on Pride and Prejudice.
