Claire Prescott is a sensible woman who believes in facts and figures, not fairy tales. But when she agrees to present a paper to a summer symposium at Oxford on her ailing sister's behalf, Claire finds herself thrown into an adventure with a gaggle of Jane Austen-loving women all on the lookout for their Mr Darcy. Claire isn't looking for Mr. Anyone. She's been dating Neil -- a nice if a bit negligent -- sports fanatic. But when a tall, dark and dashing stranger crosses her path, will the staid Claire suddenly discover her inner romantic heroine? Her chance meeting with a mysterious woman who claims to have an early version of Austen's Pride and Prejudice -- in which Lizzie ends up with someone other than Fitzwilliam Darcy -- leads to an astounding discovery about the venerated author's own struggle to find the right hero for Lizzie Bennett. Neil's unexpected arrival in Oxford complicates Claire's journey to finding her own romantic lead. The book is the story of a woman who finds that love isn't logical and that a true hero can appear in the most unexpected of places.

Second in a fun and frothy series

I had high hopes for this book, I'm not sure why, probably because it had "Mr. Darcy" in the title. I should know better. I honestly had to stop reading it because I knew how it was going to end before I even hit the half way point. I think if I needed a "super light" read, then this would be fine, but its winter so I need something a wee bit meatier.

I was prepared to not like this book as the plot involved "Pride and P" plotlines. I was pleasantly surprized when I enjoyed it as a nice fluffy read. I may even go and finally read Jane Austen.

A fun light read especially fun if you're a fan of Pride and Prejudice and the evocative Mr. Darcy.

the picture of Oxford was fun

for other literary mysteries try Amanda Cross and Robert Barnard

a clever revisit of Pride and Prejudice that is respectful and better than several others in the genre
