My Own Mr. Darcy by Karey White
I came across this book and couldn’t help but want to read it. I’m a Jane Austin fanatic and love all her work. I once wanted my own Mr. Darcy as well, so I adopted a bird and named him that. But, I was skeptical because Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorites and I was afraid this book was going to be some kind of spin off. I was wrong, so very wrong.
Elizabeth reluctantly watches the movie with her mother and best friend, then becomes obsessed with it. It’s her dream to wait for a man that fits Mr. Darcy’s image. Not just any Mr. Darcy but one that looks like Matthew Macfadyen- and who could blame her, he was the best looking Mr. Darcy that Hollywood could find.
Her best friend, Janessa, tries to bring her back to reality. When Elizabeth meets Chad in a grocery store, Janessa encourages her to date him ten times before giving up on him. In walks Matt, her perfect Mr. Darcy look alike. Not only does he look like the part, he plays it as well. Elizabeth is on cloud nine!
I felt for both the men in this story. For Chad, who didn’t deserve what happens to him. For Matt, who also didn’t deserve what happens to him. However, I am very happy for Elizabeth who followed her dreams and we are to assume she lives happily ever after.
As an author myself, I found My Own Mr. Darcy to be a little predictable. Or maybe it’s because I dreamed of this story too- finding my own. But, Karey White has given Elizabeth all the romance she ever wanted. Elizabeth found someone who spoiled her with affection, stayed by her side, paved her future, and loved her unconditionally.
Was it Chad? Or was it Matt? I can’t tell you that. You’ll have to get a copy yourself, you won’t be disappointed. And if you haven’t seen Pride and Prejudice yet, what are you waiting for? Click the picture below to order your copy of My Own Mr. Darcy and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
