REVIEW of “Mr Darcy’s Rival” by Kara Louise

What would happen when you love someone but it looks like you are not the only one?

This variation of Pride and Prejudice is full of apologies, envy, wise people and love. If you enjoy reading about Elizabeth and Darcy but you prefer when Darcy suffers a bit more than in Jane Austen’s book, you will love Mr Darcy’s Rival.

What if a female character is the “baddie” instead of Wickham who is almost a puppet? What if Anna de Bourg hides her real self and her real feelings? What if the past helps the future just for reading it? What if Charlotte is as clever as always? 😉

Kara Louise has add a lot of intrigue to P&P but having always the main couple. SPOILER ALERT: at the end they marry but the important thing is: how do they arrive to that point? 🙂

Elizabeth carries on with her bad impression of Darcy’s behaviour and she lets her vanity again to be flattered by someone new in her life. Mr Rickland is not exactly what she thinks… at the beginning.

Lizzy still despises Mr Darcy, she believes he only looks at her to find fault, how mistaken she is! Elizabeth discovers Darcy’s feelings when she should not have, this makes a small change on her perception of the arrogant gentleman, but will it be enough to fall in love with him? No! He really needs to redeem himself of his faults but it is not easy as there are too hurdles to win Elizabeth’s affections. (Mr Darcy is so charming and sweet!)

After reading Pride and Prejudice, we already know the main characters, however, I have really like some minor characters who are Kara’s ideas: Mrs Brooks and Mr Jenkinson: with so little, they are really good assets.

What if you go and grab a copy of Mr Darcy’s Rival and enjoy this fantastic book?

I was very lucky to win a giveaway of this book. Thanks to Kara and Meredith for giving and organising the giveaway 🙂
