If the two of them weren’t so stubborn…
It’s obvious to Georgiana Darcy that the lovely Elizabeth Bennet is her brother’s perfect match, but Darcy’s pigheadedness and Elizabeth’s wounded pride are going to keep them both from the loves of their lives.
Georgiana can’t let that happen, so she readily agrees to help her accommodating cousin, Anne de Bourgh, do everything within their power to assure her beloved brother’s happiness.
But the path of matchmaking never runs smoothly…

My review: As an avid reader and lover of all things Austen inspired, I have to say that I fell in love with The Perfect Bride for Mr. Darcy. First off let me that while this is a Pride & Prejudice redo and holds the same key notes that the original has it is completely different. I felt that it was such a nice deviation, like a breath of fresh air. Humorous, witty, and well composed, I could not put this book down. A wonderful addition to your Jane Austen collection, readers should defiantly give it a go.
Overall would I read this again? Most defiantly!
