Mr. Darcy’s Bad Day

Mr. Darcy is not having a very good day and it keeps getting worse, but the worse it is for him, the funnier it is for us.

In this book, while walking near the Longbourn grounds, Mr. Darcy takes a fall and injures himself being found by Miss Elizabeth Bennet, who promptly seeks help to take him to Longbourn and be seen by a doctor. I found the means of transportation and Mr. Darcy’s ramblings about it very funny; in fact, the entire opening pages are incredibly funny. I couldn’t stop laughing or smiling while reading this book, and consider it a very entertaining novella, perfect for someone who wants to have a good time. It can easily be read in one hour and it will for sure give readers a pleasurable time.

Apart from the humour, I enjoyed the fact that in this book Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth have intelligent and interesting dialogues, their rhetoric was noteworthy and it made me want to read future books from this author.

I also liked to see that both characters came to the rescue of one another in different circumstances. Elizabeth helps Mr. Darcy after his fall, and he comes to her rescue in a very gentlemanly manner when Mr. Collins becomes everything but gentlemanly towards her.

As the book is not very long Elizabeth’s character has to go through several changes very fast, but I believe this was successfully done, culminating with her outmaneuvering Lady Catherine in an impressive manner.

The epilogue was just amazing and I absolutely loved it, but you will have to read it to know why 🙂

Summing up, this is a small story that can be read very fast and will for sure make everyone smile. It’s perfect to be read between two longer and more serious books as it is a fresh and amusing story.

On Amazon the author describes this book as a timeless romance for the busy reader, and I perfectly agree with her. With so many events happening in our lives we have less and less free time to truly enjoy a longer romance so I really value these shorter stories, and given the quality on this one, I will be looking forward to the next releases from this author.

    • Oh yes… I would say this one is perfect after an angsty one Glynis. It is light, funny and well written 🙂 I will definitely buy another book from this author if she decides to publish any other.

    ‘A perfect romance for the busy reader’!
    Sounds ideal!!
    Loved your review,Rita,and it’s very clear,in your enthusiastic response to this book,that toh loved every minute spent within its covers!! Sigh! 😉


    • Thank you Mary 🙂 I did enjoy this book very much! Sometimes I like to go to amazon and search for new things to read. I saw this one shortly after it was released and couldn’t resist buying it. I can not say I regret it! It is a wonderful book 🙂


  3. I hadn’t heard of this author but this sounds good. Sometimes you’re in the mood for something meaty and other times you want something quick and light 🙂


    • It was a new author to me too Ceri. I discovered this book on Amazon, and the cover along with the blurb made me buy it. I’m glad I did because it is very good. And I was needing something lighter and faster to read, sometimes a quicker story is just what I need 🙂


  4. One of the great things about following blogs like yours Rita, is when you bring a new author to our attention. I’ve just put this book on my Wish List and will be looking out for more by Christie Capps in the future. It’s great to be able to pick up a shorter, more light-hearted read inbetween longer, more angsty ones sometimes. This sounds to be just the book to fulfill that.
    Thanks for pointing it out to is.


  5. Great review, Rita. I also appreciate Timeless Romance for the Busy Reader. I’m finding I have less and less time too.

    Loved your review Rita. And, I loved, Loved, LOVED this short story. OMG!! I laughed until I think I hurt myself. It was one of those stories where you need to read it to liven a hectic day or if you are having a horrible, terrible, very bad day of your own. Thanks for posting. JWG
