A charming take on Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Darcy Takes the Plunge is a gem. The fun, and puns, begin when Fitwilliam Darcy and his friends decide to take a plunge in a pond on their estate. When a rather wet and disheveled Darcy encounters his sisters and their new friends on the lawn of Pemberley he leaves a lasting impression. Elizabeth Bennet can’t quite get the image of the “Handsome Barbarian” out of her mind. When both families find themselves in London for the Little Season a romance soon develops.
Full of charm and wit, even to the point of being corny at times, I found myself not wanting to put it down. The characters draw you in and leave you wanting more. It was definitely worth reading. A book you’ll want to read again and again. If you like to be entertained, I highly recommend it.
My Rating: 5 out of 5 Palms
