Unleashing Mr Darcy – Teri Wilson

It is a truth universally acknowledged that most reviews of books of this kind will begin in this hilariously unoriginal fashion.

And this will be no exception.

Unleashing Mr Darcy is the brilliant new book by Teri Wilson, the first of three stories based on classic romantic tales. If this is anything to go by, we are in for quite a treat!

Elizabeth Scott is our heroine, Donovan Darcy is our brooding English gentleman and the familiar tale is set against the crazy backdrop of dog shows in New York and London. I’m not really a big dog person, but it has even left this Cruella swooning over cute puppies (and wondering exactly WHO hairsprays their pet?!)

Fans of Austen won’t be disappointed, Wilson has very cleverly weaved in beautiful references to the original text (lots of “Aah!” moments of fond recognition) and for fans of the BBC production, and a particular infamous Firth scene there is an extra specially moist treat for you too!

I loved this book, I devoured it in one delicious sitting and would highly recommend it for fans and non-fans of Austen alike.

Who can resist the dark brooding Darcy? Not me.

Can’t wait to see which classic she tackles next!

I was delighted to receive a copy in exchange for an honest review.
