    Great Book!

    Falling For Mr. Darcy by KaraLynn Mackrory is an adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Mackrory explores the idea of what would happen if Mr. Darcy let go of his pride and told people about George Wickham's scandalous behavior before Wickham could charm his way into the hearts of Merryton, if Darcy never interfered with Bingley and Jane's relationship, and if he behaved in "a more gentleman-like manner" towards Elizabeth. You might think that by doing these things, it would eliminate any problems in the story. However Darcy's honorable actions causes a whole new set of problems.
    Wickham becomes desperate and his actions more deplorable than in the original Pride and Prejudice. Darcy is still enamored with Elizabeth but is torn between what he thinks is his duty and what his heart wants. I love that Mackrory makes use of some of the minor characters from P&P in this book. Mr Bennet is his usual witty self, Mr. Collins is still abhorrent, and Colonel Fitzpatrick is still very charming. The author does play around with their story lines a bit to make everything more interesting.
    This is a really good adaptation of the original story. I really like the direction that the author took this book. I've often wondered what would happen if Darcy had done things differently. Mackrory answered my questions and more in Falling For Mr. Darcy.

    This is a very sweet, low angst book that takes our beloved Prid

    This is a very sweet, low angst book that takes our beloved Pride and Prejudice characters on an adventure of what if... Ms Mackrory knows how to write happiness and her characters are believable and true to Austen's originals. More than just sweet, the book is also funny and entertaining as Ms Mackrory often uses portions of the original P & P in different contexts and with different characters leaving a true Austenite able to appreciate the subtle allusions.

    I enjoyed the concept of this variation on P&P and the story

    I enjoyed the concept of this variation on P&P and the story moved along well. Darcy's character's tender side was very appealing. However, I thought much of the descriptive terminology regarding Elizabeth and Jane was sophomoric and unimaginatively written. I thought it was very distracting and disrupted the flow of the narrative. Jane 'squealing and kicking her little feet' was just too out of character for words.

    Wow! One of the best I've ever read in P&P variations! This

    Wow! One of the best I've ever read in P&P variations! This writer is truly gifted with dialogue and presents a great story. If you thought Bingley and Jane were a bit underdone in the original, this book also delivers a much more acceptable Mr. Bingley worthy of Jane. Elizabeth's relationship with her father is also very special in this book. This writer understood the characters very well from P&P and presented a very thoughtful take here! Great!

    This is one of those delightful books that just makes me smile.

    This is one of those delightful books that just makes me smile. I smiled at the awkward small talk between Darcy and Elizabeth even as they internally berated themselves for their attraction to each other. I smiled at the devious matchmaking tricks employed by nearly all of the characters. I laughed out loud at the rampant winking. I found myself to be in a lovely mood for the entire rest of the day, even after I closed the book on the last page. In short, this novel made me happy.

    Ms. Mackrory truly did a marvelous job with the characters in this book. Darcy and Elizabeth were perfect (I know they always are, but in this story they shone with particular brightness) with witty banter a-plenty and aww-inspiring romance. Bingley managed to develop a determined streak that was fun to watch and Lady Catherine made a unique and memorable appearance. My favorite, however, had to be Mr. Bennet. There was an original yet completely believable twist to his character, both in what he did and why he did it.

    There's a little action to the story, taking the form of Wickham sending threatening messages. How far will he go in his quest to hurt Darcy? I will leave you to discover that for yourself. I liked how his machinations drew out an even more protective side to Darcy.

    Falling for Mr. Darcy is sweet and fun and oh-so wonderfully romantic. I highly recommend it as a story to curl up with while enjoying a cup of tea.

    I received a copy of this book, courtesy of Meryton Press, in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    Fun alternative pride & predjudice

    Loved the overall story. Really like the Mary and Wickham changes. However, I preferred Lizzy telling off Lady Catherine instead of Mr Darcy

    Looked promising, but falls flat.

    Storyline and characters were so altered that it's like an entirely new book. It's also narrated to death, and the characters start to seem downright silly as every thought and nuance of feeling is spelled out to exhaustive lengths. I started skimming about a quarter of the way into it, and eventually skipped to the end just out of curiosity. I've read worse fan fiction, but if you're a true Austen officianado, don't bother.
