Don't miss this fun book!

I was fortunate to receive an ARC of Definitely Not Mr. Darcy and didn't want to put the book down. Thirty-nine-year-old Chloe Parker is a divorced mother from Chicago who thinks she's auditioning for a Jane Austen historical-recreation TV show and finds herself instead in a Regency-era version of The Bachelor. It's a great premise that more than pays off in this debut novel. Chloe finds herself in over her head more than once and discovers that living in the past isn't all she expected. I enjoyed this book even more than I thought I would. It's funny, insightful, and ultimately very satisfying.

Poorly written and disjointed

This was such a difficult book to read because it was so poorly written. Terrible grammar, awkward phrases, and abrupt plot changes. The ending seemed completely tacked on and was completely unsatisfying. I'm actually deleting it from my Nook.

    Not quite what I expected

    This story had an interesting plot; the idea of this story drew me in. It was fascinating to learn about all the 19th century customs as I read. I hope it was historically accurate, but regardless, it was interesting. The one thing about the book that was disappointing was the ending. It was rather abrupt; maybe not quite the romantic happily-ever-after I was expecting. Nevertheless, it was a pretty good read overall.
