Pride and Prejudice: Darcy Chooses: An Accident, a Chance Meeting, a Dance and Romance

Pride and Prejudice:  Darcy Chooses: An Accident, a Chance Meeting, a Dance and Romance

By Gianna Thomas
This book was a variation of Pride and Prejudice and being of a Historical and English setting made for interesting reading.  I was taken in by the book about the time of the carriage accident as Darcy found it necessary to take this form of transportation due to a break of a carriage wheel of his own carriage.  Uncomfortable while sitting across from women his doesn’t know, yet he is taken by the striking features of Lizzy Bennet as she and her friend visit and discuss a 

An accident occurs which causes more interaction between the riders of the carriage and it was necessary to find help to rescue the young women, one of whom was unconscious.  They thank Darcy who notices some unexpected feelings. 

A formal ball is being held and Darcy arranges some dances with her on her dance card.  Preparations take place and the two begin to grow much fonder of one another as time passes.

The romance takes a turn for the worse as the affections of Darcy are sought by Caroline Bingley who attempts to cause Darcy to look in her direction as the mistress of Pemberley, Darcy’s Estate.  Caroline quickly assumes the villainess role and the character Wickham, portrays another unsavory role.  With these two we find many unexpected turns and upheavals in the story and the romance appears to meet with great obstacles. 

I am aware that this is part 1 of 2 parts.  It will be very interesting to see what happens in part 2.  I look forward to reading it, as well.  It really held my attention and was a very good read. 

I received this book from the author in exchange for my review.
