5,0 sur 5 étoilesA Joy to Read
Commenté au Canada le 4 février 2020
This is charming. After the Netherfield ball Mr Darcy has a nightmare that Lizzy is marrying Mr Collins. Both in the dream and in a surreal subsequent discussion with Mr Bennet, he is challenged to outsmart Mr Collins and win over the woman who has touched his heart.
This was a delightful story to read. It made me giggle a number of times, especially the epilogue. It is a great story to read when you need a pick-me-up, but don't have a lot of time. This is one I will be adding to my favourites folder and read again.
Loved it! I enjoy all the short stories Joy writes under this name and I would put this up with my favourites! Darcy competing with Mr Collins to try and win Elizabeth? I loved the reactions of his chosen helper! I loved the way Darcy thought through all his interactions with Elizabeth to earn her regard! I loved the story of Mr Collins and the sweets 😂😂. All in all a fabulous book! Highly recommended!

Although with modern face being passed off as of the regency on the cover ... I really can’t do with that, reminds me too much of those horrid cheap yellow paper bodice rippers you can buy at airports ... I gave this a chance and it was a funny and interesting short read over a cuppa.
These short stories by Christie Capps are all the sweetest, cutest, funniest little tidbits. Written from the POV of Mr. Darcy, it's heartwarming to uncover his deep insecurities and his desperation to avoid a lost opportunity. The premise, a competition of sorts between Mr. Darcy and Mr. Collins to win Elizabeth's favor in a limited amount of time, is exactly right to provide comic situations and to showcase the absurdity of Mr. Collins. Darcy's suit is helped tremendously just by favorable contrast with Mr. Collins' clumsy efforts. And then Lady Catherine joins Mr.Collins near the end, giving Darcy the perfect opportunity to demonstrate all of his finest qualities.
As a sweet surprise, Georgiana is given a significant role in her brother's quest to change Elizabeth's negative feelings about him. In an endearing twist, Darcy turns to his young sister for help, and she becomes his saving grace with her advice and ideas, which he adopts gratefully and promptly. This loving trust of his sister's wisdom makes us love him even more.
In these short stories, progress is necessarily swift, and the resolution isn't long in coming, which is satisfying. You can't help but smile when you read this, and it's a fun way to pass a little time with characters you love. I recommend it highly.
