Home » » Mr. Darcy to the Rescue by Victoria Kincaid: Review + Giveaway
Book Blurb: When the irritating Mr. Collins proposes marriage, Elizabeth Bennet is prepared to refuse him, but then she learns that her father is ill. If Mr. Bennet dies, Collins will inherit Longbourn and her family will have nowhere to go. Elizabeth accepts the proposal, telling herself she can be content as long as her family is secure. If only she weren’t dreading the approaching wedding day…
Ever since leaving Hertfordshire, Mr. Darcy has been trying to forget his inconvenient attraction to Elizabeth. News of her betrothal forces him to realize how devastating it would be to lose her. He arrives at Longbourn intending to prevent the marriage, but discovers Elizabeth’s real opinion about his character. Then Darcy recognizes his true dilemma…
How can he rescue her when she doesn’t want him to?
My Review: This book is a welcome change from the majority of Pride and Prejudice variations out there. In this book Elizabeth actually accepts Mr. Collins' proposal to save her family from poverty after Mr. Bennet dies in the future. When Darcy hears about the engagement he travels to Meryton to change her mind and get her marry him instead. Hilarity ensues from Darcy's scheme to break off their betrothal (which sort of backfires by the way) to people's own reaction to his own engagement to Lizzy. This book had me laughing through the majority of it. I just wish that the book was a little longer. Towards the end it did seem a little rushed to me. But I did enjoy this book and I hope to see more titles in the future from Ms. Kincaid.
