Series: A Pride & Prejudice Variation (Book 3)

Editorial Reviews


What Would Mr. Darcy Do? is another fun variation of Pride and Prejudice, and lovers of Austen fan fiction will love seeing a more demonstrative side to Mr. Darcy, along with a different side of Georgiana and Colonel Fitzwilliam. (Diary of an Eccentric )

a quick, entertaining read for Austen fans. (Historical Novels Review )


Recommend? Absolutely! This one was just fun and original. It took me about two hours to read it and not once did my attention waver. This is one P&P variation that you should add to your list!!

More About the Author

Abigail Reynolds may be a nationally bestselling author, but she can't follow a straight line with a ruler. Originally from upstate New York, she studied Russian and theater at Bryn Mawr College and marine biology at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole. After a stint in performing arts administration, she decided to attend medical school, and took up writing as a hobby during her years as a physician in private practice.

A life-long lover of Jane Austen's novels, Abigail began writing variations on Pride & Prejudice in 2001, then expanded her repertoire to include a series of novels set on her beloved Cape Cod. Her most recent releases are the national bestseller MR. DARCY'S NOBLE CONNECTIONS, THE DARCYS OF DERBYSHIRE and MORNING LIGHT, and she is currently working on a new Pemberley Variation and the next novel in her Cape Cod series. Her books have been translated into four languages. A lifetime member of JASNA, she lives on Cape Cod with her husband, her son and a menagerie of animals. Her hobbies do not include sleeping or cleaning her house.

I just wanted to make all buyers aware that this book is a reprint of a book previously written by Reynolds entitled "From Lambton to Longborne".

I bought this after reading the glowing reviews. I was disappointed. I've read several P&P sequels, and though I did find it somewhat entertaining, the repeated descriptions of Darcy & Elizabeth stealing kisses again, and again, and - surprise - again was a bit tedious. Different readers enjoy different types of novels, and I enjoyed Pamela Aidan's trilogy quite a lot, though my favorite so far has been Helen Halstead's "Mr. Darcy Presents His Bride." The Linda Berdoll books are on the other extreme - the X-rated version of Darcy & Elizabeth's relationship. This novel was somewhere in between, a Harlequin romance warmed over. The story got less and less plausible as it went, as much of a story as there was - which wasn't much, sad to say. I did enjoy seeing a bit more of Georgiana, but I missed seeing what Lady Catherine would have to say in this take on the P&P story. I also didn't enjoy the development of Darcy's and Elizabeth's personalities as needy, clingy, and insecure in the romance department.

I did enjoy it, and would give it 3 and a half stars if I could, but I wouldn't spend the money on it again. It's just not my type of novel. For those who enjoy light paperbook romances, you'd probably like it much better than I did.

I decided to read this, to see what a variation of P&P would be like and I'm a little dissapointed. The scenes between Lizzy and Darcy have Darcy coming off as if he has a hair fetish, considering every time they get close his face seems to go straight for that.

Miss Darcy's characterization as a giggling schoolgirl comes from nowhere, and the whole book seems to be written for the express purpose of having Darcy and Lizzy snog each other's brains out. With no other plot to sustain itself it got boring reading every other scene where Darcy goes ant tries to eat Lizzy's hair again. I wasn't expecting Austen in this, but I was hoping for an entertaining read, mostly I kept getting pulled out of the story by the bad characterizations. Not the worst continuation of P&P I've read, but nowhere near the best.

This is the third of the Abigail Reynolds Pride and Prejudice "variations" which I have read and I'm finally understanding the concept (just color me a slow learner!). Having said that, I can say that these books are so completely different from each other that it can be really quite confusing. Each Darcy is totally different from the last one. Each Elizabeth is totally different. This is quite a feat for Ms Reynolds to carry off in five books and still keep the Pride and Prejudice fanatics, of which I am one, happy. So far I have really liked one (The Last Man in the World), been rather surprised and unhappy with one (Without Reserve), and am now sitting firmly on the fence with this one. My assignment is to come up with a review stating what I liked and what I didn't like about this book.

What I liked: 1.) It was a Pride and Prejudice variation. 2.) I think Ms Reynolds managed to get the "voice" of the period down very well in this book. 3.) The characters of Mary and Kitty were much more pleasing and came closer to being real, average young women in this novel. 3.) Georgianna came out of her shell quite a bit, but here I think this plus may also bleed over into the minus category somewhat. She came out of her shell almost too much. 4.) The characters of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet were well done. More of him, less of her. I liked that.

What I didn't like: 1.)If the reader is not completely familiar with the original Pride and Prejudice, this book opens so abruptly that some readers will take a long time to figure out what is happening. It literally begins the moment after Lizzy has told Darcy in the private parlor of the Inn at Lambton about the problem with Lydia and Wickham.

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.
