Mr. Darcy’s Christmas Carol
By Carolyn Eberhart
Many of you are familiar with the Charles Dickens “Christmas Carol”, well Carolyn Eberhart retells the beloved classic with the Mr. Darcy as the lead. I have to say that I enjoyed reading the new take on an old classic, and was rather surprised with I realized the similarities between Scrooge and Darcy.
A very well crafted read. I am looking forward to reading more from this author.
By Amanda Grange
In this story, Darcy and Elizabeth are married and are expecting their first child.. Her sister Jane and Mr. Bingly have just had their first child, and although Elizabeth is near the end of her own confinement, she persuades Darcy to allow them to travel to the Bingly’s. Once they arrive, we see the cast of character’s we have loved from the original P&P, and of course they are still composed in the same form we have come to know & love them by.
Another great read from Amanda Grange.
A Darcy Christmas
By Sharon Lathan
A Darcy Christmas would have to be my favorite out of the three. It shows the many Christmas’s of the Darcy family. I loved the way it was like a flashback into Darcy’s & Elizabeth’s past.
I have noticed that this year has seen an influx Pride & Prejudice based material, which I have to say that I have been loving. Although I have not been able to a Christmas themed book, that is until now. “A Darcy Christmas” is a lovely collect of three novella’s by Amanda Grange, Sharon Lathan, and Carolyn Eberhart.
I found that I simply could not put the book down. Each novella held my attention and I found that I read each one straight through. Fans of Jane Austen will be thrilled to add “A Darcy Christmas” to their Jane Austen spin-off shelf, and if you are like me you probably have an entire shelf or two just for those types of books.
Trust me, this book is a must read.
