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.
