Synopsis

Fans and critics alike have requested it–a more authentic British version of Dear Miss Darcy–and now it’s here. Packed with UK spellings, slang, and terminology, from lifts and dustbins to diaries and windscreens, while retaining the same Austenesque plot and language as before.

Successful ‘agony aunt’ Olivia Darcy owes her career of romantic advice to her ancestors—Lizzie and Fitzwilliam Darcy's— famous name as much as her insights. But definitely not to her disastrous track record of first dates, ones she keeps hidden from even her closest friends.

But both are tested when she inadvertently challenges successful, self-made Christopher Stanley—one of London’s biggest playboys—over his latest relationship woes. When he demands a retraction, Miss Darcy ends up sparring with him, publicly and privately in a quest to prove she’s right. Only her curiosity about Christopher Stanley may cost Miss Darcy her career, her secret…and her heart!

In the spirit of Shakespeare's Benedict and Beatrice (definitely not Romeo and Juliet) emerges a modern take on Austen's Pride and Prejudice. With a twist of love-hate romance, a dash of mild public scandal, and more than a few Jane Austen references, authors Briggs and Burgess draw on the world of Austen for a lightly-comic tale of not-so opposites, with characters whose romantic barbs are a tongue-in-cheek tribute to Jane herself.

    Another P&P Fanfic

    I'm not sure why I even bothered to read this, but I thought it would be different from the other fanfics out there. Same plot devices as you would expect from a P&P fanfic. If you like to read a modern (but lacklustre) version of Pride and Prejudice, I guess you can try it out. But if you're looking for something different, then this may not be for you.

    Dear Miss Darcy

    I have read better! Quite wanting in parts. Miss Darcy does not come across as a likeable character.......disappointing.
