This is a funny, romantic, feel-good novel to just sit down and wallow in. Since having read Pride and Prejudice at the age of twelve Emily has been in love with Mr Darcy. Dating men in New York she finds that no-one comes quite up to the standards set in place by Jane Austen, no one even comes close. When the offer of a drunken girlie holiday in Mexico is made to her, Emily decides it’s time to change tactics and decides to head for England and find her Mr Darcy.

Synopsis

Me and Mr Darcy by Alexandra Potter

Every girl is looking for their Mr Darcy...

Emily Albright is a hopeless romantic. As the manager of a quirky little bookshop in New York, she loves nothing more than curling up with a good book. And, disillusioned with modern-day love, she seeks solace by thinking about the romantic heroes in literature – particularly Pride and Prejudice`s witty, handsome Mr Darcy.

So when she spots an ad for a specialist book tour to explore the world of Jane Austen in the English countryside, on impulse - she books it. Arriving in England a few days later she discovers her tour is full of old women, and one man: Spike, a foul-tempered journalist who`s been sent by his magazine editor because of a recent poll where women across the generations voted Mr Darcy as the man they would most like to go on a date with.

It`s every woman`s fantasy. Until Emily walks into a room and finds herself face-to-face with Darcy himself. And it suddenly becomes one woman`s reality...

Reviews

Always perceptive, often funny, never dull * Heat * A touching, funny love-story * Company * Nobody does it quite like Alexandra Potter * Daily Mirror * Feel-good fiction full of unexpected twists and turns * OK! * 'A winning formula of chaotic heroine meeting eccentric hero, and, after misunderstandings, finding love. Sharply written, pacey and funny...pure self-indulgence' * The Times on BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR *

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.
