Me and Mr. Darcy by Alexandra Potter
I thought this sounded like a fun, chick lit mix with the traditional P&P story. On a whim, Emily travels to England to take part in a "Jane Austen tour" of the English countryside, and while there, encounters...well, super hottie dream hunk crush, Mr. Darcy.
As well as a disagreeable journalist, a few ladies of "advanced years", a fairy godmother and a bus driver with a past.
This is a light, engaging read, if you are well versed in P&P you'll immediately see parallels in the stories and characters, and even right down to some of the language used. I know the market has been positively FLOODED with Austen knockoff, continuations, homages, and takeoffs, so I would worry that this one will get lost in the shuffle.
Still, I enjoyed the scenery, the characterization of Darcy, and the chick lit-ness of it. Fun and frothy - an easy read!
