Book Review: Mr. Darcy Broke My Heart by Beth Pattillo

Mr. Darcy Broke My Heart by Beth Pattillo, author of Jane Austen Ruined My Life.
Review by Me, Emily.

Claire Prescott is anything but thrilled when she gets roped into going to a Jane Austen seminar in place of her sister. Unlike her sister, she doesn't see the appeal of the iconic Mr. Darcy. Claire has been dating a 'nice guy' and is content with him. Mostly.

While at the seminar, she is swept away by a handsome Darcy-like character. She also comes into possession of the long-lost first draft of Pride and Prejudice in Jane Austen's own writing.

Will she be whisked away by the handsome man at her romantic getaway in Oxford? Or will the nice guy win her heart after all?

I thoroughly enjoyed this Austen spinoff. Although, I am not sure I agreed with the know...did she really end up with the right guy? I'm not sure.

Anyway, the book is 'good, clean fun'. It's quick and enjoyable.
(PS. A little shameless self-promotion...If you are ordering anything from Amazon this Christmas, I'd really appreciate it if you clicked through my site to get there. Thanks!)


  1. Can't wait to read it. And I hope to do some Amazon shopping today, so I'm make sure I do it here!

  2. Thanks for the reminder --I ordered from you last year and I almost forgot about that option this year!

  3. Sounds like a good book to read, will have to added it to my list of good reads. Have you read Mr.Darcy's Diary. I just happened on to it at the library yesterday. So far it is turning into a good read.

  4. Jenny-I haven't read Mr. Darcy's Diary. If it ends up being a good, clean book, you should send me a review to post. Thanks!

  5. I really enjoyed your website! Your book reviews are wonderful reading. Have you heard of Danny the Dragon? It’s worth a review: Please let me know if you are interested in reviewing this nominee for Best Children’s Book of 2009! Thank you, Rosie
