"And the chemistry between these two characters popped off the page in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice but it jumps of the page and does the samba in this one. I don't think I can recommend this highly enough.

"What Would Mr. Darcy Do? comes highly recommended for any romance fiction fan, and anyone wanting to dabble in romance but not quite ready to take the full leap required for novels.

Abigail Reynolds is one of my favorite Austenesque authors and I adore her series of Pride and Prejudice variations! I highly recommend this variation to readers interested in seeing Pride and Prejudice take another path!

Abagail Reynolds is one of my favorite authors when in comes to Pride and Prejudice variations. I have read several of her novels and have fallen in love with each one. She takes the question 'what if?' and applies them to the original story line. In this novel, What Would Mr. Darcy Do? Abagail Reynolds addressed the question, What if Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett were upfront with their feelings for each other at the Lampton Inn?" The storyline takes off in a new direction. Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy both confess to their romantic feelings towards each other and things start to heat up. They are caught in a precarious position by the Gardiners and hard choices have to be made. Although Elizabeth is fond of Mr. Darcy, she does not want to be forced into marriage. Mr. Darcy makes it his mission in life to convince Elizabeth that he is the right man for her. This book was originally published in 2008 under the title, From Lambton to Longbourn. However this was my first time reading this particular variation. I found the story line to be very enjoyable. I like this twist on the original story. I also like that Abagail Reynolds keeps most of the side stories in tact while giving us something completely new. She stays true to the characters and their personalities. Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth both express doubts and misinterpret each other quite a bit. They must learn to overcome it their insecurities, with the help of the Gardiners. Things also become a little hot and steamy between the two. It's not R rated but definitely not PG either. The chemistry between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy is captivating. Overall this book is a great Pride and Prejudice variation. I adore Abagail Reynolds and I love reading her novels. She definitely gives me my Mr. Darcy fix. If you're a fan of Pride and Prejudice, I would recommend this novel to you. Even if you're not a fan it's still a good read.

This story is the same as 'From Longbourn to Lambton'. It is a great variation, but i am disapointed that it is the same story and i paid for it twice.

If you like Pride and Prejudice variations--Abigail Reynolds is a great author to read. I have not been disappointed in any of her books that I have read so far.

I generally like her stories, but this was pretty boring. I had to push myself to finish it. The vast majority of the book was conflict and humor free. The beginning has a paper-thin but of tension. Pass on this one.

This book was another great variation of Pride and Prejudice full of humour and interesting character interpretations. I really liked the way Mary, Kitty, and Georgiana were written and the relationship that forms between them.

I must say that I have loved this series and was very excited to get this book. When I was reading it I thought I downloaded the wrong one - - and one I read before! This book is the same as Longbourn to Lambton except for 3 paragraphs. Disappointed.
