My Own Mr. Darcy is a really wonderful contemporary romance.
It is about a girl named Elizabeth who becomes obsessed with the idea that Mr. Darcy, from the Pride and Prejudice movie, is the absolute best man a woman could have, and decides to wait for her own Mr. Darcy.
Of course she makes that decision when she is 16, and really doesn’t know all that much about men and love.
She eventually meets a man she thinks is almost exactly like Mr. Darcy, and he seems to like her, but things are not nearly as good as she imagined they would be.
I love the way she grows up in this book.
It is a really wonderful story.
About the Book :
After being dragged to the 2005 movie Pride and Prejudice by her mother, sixteen-year-old Elizabeth’s life changes when Matthew Macfadyen’s Mr. Darcy appears on the screen. Lizzie falls hard and makes a promise to herself that she will settle for nothing less than her own Mr. Darcy. This ill-advised pledge threatens to ruin any chance of finding true love. During the six intervening years, she has refused to give any interested suitors a chance. They weren’t Mr. Darcy enough.
Coerced by her roommate, Elizabeth agrees to give the next interested guy ten dates before she dumps him. That guy is Chad, a kind and thoughtful science teacher and swim coach. While she’s dating Chad, her dream comes true in the form of a wealthy bookstore owner named Matt Dawson, who looks and acts like her Mr. Darcy. Of course she has to follow her dream. But as Elizabeth simultaneously dates a regular guy and the dazzling Mr. Dawson, she’s forced to re-evaluate what it was she loved about Mr. Darcy in the first place.
