Once upon a time I read this and loved it. I remember giving it 4 stars. I remember devouring it in a couple days. Due to my Colin Firth kick (don't start on me!) I am now going through Pride and Prejudice variations (as anyone who follows me on Twitter knows). So I took Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife off the shelf and read it again.
What on earth was I thinking?
4 stars? Maybe 2.5 stars. Sure, it was done in the P&P style, very little dialog with long loooonnnnggggg paragraphs of exposition on characters that had no real propose to the story. Background dumps from the time of birth until their relevance to the story. Wow, did I not care.
Detail upon detail with no dialog about interactions between Elizabeth and Darcy.
More information about Lady Catherine, Georgiana, Wickham, and Jane and Bingley than I cared to know.
I couldn't finish it and so donated it the library since our copy was missing. And yet...and yet what did I do? *sigh* Glutton for punishment that I am, I checked out its sequel Darcy & Elizabeth: Nights and Days at Pemberley. I'll review that next week.
