  • 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 really liked this book. It was such a cute, funny, and creative read. I am such a Jane Austen fan, so immediately I was at home with the story line. I felt exactly the same way Elizabeth felt after watching Pride and Prejudice for the first time. There are times where Elizabeth is quoting certain scenes, or thinking about a certain parts of the movie, these moments put a smile on my face. I felt the same way about those exact scenes. Goosebumps! This is such a good love story, totally witty. Anyone could read this book. No cursing. No sexual content. no violence of any kind. A must read!

Merry Christmas!
