Wishlist Wednesday: Mr Darcy Broke My Heart

Mr Darcy Broke My Heart
Beth Pattillo

Claire Prescott is a sensible woman who believes in facts and figures, not fairy tales. But when she agrees to present a paper to a summer symposium at Oxford on her ailing sister's behalf, Claire finds herself thrown into an adventure with a gaggle of Jane Austen-loving women all on the lookout for their Mr. Darcy. Claire isn't looking for Mr. Anyone. She's been dating Neil -- a nice if a bit negligent -- sports fanatic. But when a tall, dark and dashing stranger crosses her path, will the staid Claire suddenly discover her inner romantic heroine? Her chance meeting with a mysterious woman who claims to have an early version of Austen's Pride and Prejudice -- in which Lizzie ends up with someone other than Fitzwilliam Darcy -- leads to an astounding discovery about the venerated author's own struggle to find the right hero for Lizzie Bennet. Neil's unexpected arrival in Oxford complicates Claire's journey to finding her own romantic lead. 

I want this one on pure cover appeal alone.  So. Pretty.
I haven't really heard much about it, though.  Anyone read this one?  Is it a Buy or a Library?

  1. I thought it was a pretty good book. The parts where she's reading the early manuscript of P&P and interacting with the woman who holds it are the most interesting. The cover is gorgeous!

  2. I liked it a lot, I'd buy it! I like the third book better though, The Dashwood Sisters Tell All.

  3. I liked it a lot. There's mystery surrounding the original P&P manuscript, the lady who has it, and the other people that want it. And she has to choose whether she wants the fantasy man or the real man in her life.

  4. I haven't read it but will buy it for the cover and title.

  5. This comment has been removed by the author.

  6. I'm offering a different opinion here. I think you should borrow the book because I didn't really like that Lizzie Bennet somehow ended up with someone else in the early manuscript of P&P. I was not connected reading it compared to Beth's first book, Jane Austen Ruined My Life. I guess it's just my opinion so don't bash me.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
