Review of A Wife for Mr. Darcy

A Wife for Mr. Darcy
Mary Lydon Simonsen
Sourcebooks Landmark
ISBN 9781402246466

   Mr. Darcy insults Miss Elizabeth Bennett at the Meryton Assembly and he finds himself obliged to find her and apologize. Mr. Darcy is not quite prepared for the Elizabeth that stands up to him. She is a very different type of lady. One, in which he is not used to. There is something about her that most definitely pegs his interests.
   Darcy finds himself highly intrigued by Elizabeth; but there is one major problem. He is already involved in a courtship. You just don't drop a young lady and move on to the next, especially if her father moves in the right circles. Maybe a little harmless flirting will be okay, or will it? Will Darcy get more then he bargains for?
   This is a wonderful remake of the famous Jane Austen story that has touched the hearts of millions through the years. I think all of her fans will be thrilled with the results. Mr. Darcy and Miss Elizabeth will enthrall you with their dry wit and sarcastic humor. Elizabeth will win you over with her point blank, no nonsense attitude. You will follow Darcy as he loses his heart to one he should not have. You know how society dictates that he marry into his own class. This is a must read for all the Jane Austen fans out there or if you just enjoy  great historical fiction. I don't think you will be disappointed.
   I wish to thank Sourcebooks for providing me with an ARC to review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions expressed are my own. I was not compensated in anyway except for the privilege of reading the book.

I give A Wife for Mr. Darcy 4.5 out of 5 stars
