Mr. Darcy’s Obsession by Abigail Reynolds, review

1 Comment

I’ve been reading a lot of Austenesque books lately – in fact, I’ll have three reviews up this month alone.  I can honestly say that Abigail Reynolds is my favourite writer of this genre.

After Mr. Bennett dies, his daughters circumstances fall even further and Elizabeth ends up in London caring for her cousin’s children.  Mr. Darcy finds her there and the two begin a new relationship – not always a smooth one as you can imagine.

I adore how well she writes Darcy and Elizabeth.  She knows their characteristics inside and out and writes their feelings, mannerisms and quirks to perfection.  I LOVE how she doesn’t try to write like Jane Austen – which is refreshing because I found P&P hard to read.  Most of all, I enjoy the fact that her affection for her characters is quite apparent.  The dialog is witty, interesting and flows nicely to make for an easy weekend read.

Thanks to Sourcebooks who provided this copy of Mr. Darcy’s Obsession for review.
