Amazon: Darcy By Any Other Name
In the tradition of Freaky Friday, it’s a story of two people -Darcy and Collins exchanging bodies and having to learn important truths. This was such a Different book then what I usually read that it took me a little while to decide what I thought of it. The entire story of Pride and Prejudice was switched up and completely changed. It was really creative story and by the end I decided that I liked it. I found myself wanting to know what happened. I enjoyed the characters. it was nice to get to see a bit more of the minor characters like Anne and colonel Fritzwilliam. The characters were true in the tradition of what Jane Austin had created in Pride and Prejudice. I liked most of the characters like Elizabeth. Some I didn’t like especially Collins. This was a unique twist to a well known classic and gives you a completely different perspective.
I recommend this to my family and friends.
I received this complementary copy from the publisher to read and give my honest review.
About the Author
My journey as a writer began with the Internet. And with Jane Austen. How is that for an unlikely combination? I have always loved classic Regency romances. You know the kind – with a dashing, honorable hero and a lovely, intelligent heroine. Delicious banter, unexpected plot twists, humor, and a happy ending. If faith is woven into the story, so much the better. When I discovered an online forum for Jane Austen-related fiction, I was hooked. With Jane’s characters for inspiration, I began writing and posting serialized Regency stories. To keep readers coming back for more, I developed my signature style: intertwined plots, cliffhangers, and laugh-out-loud humor. The comedy I come by in my job as a middle school teacher—there’s never a dull moment with teens!
