Definitely Not Mr Darcy

Summary Definitely Not Mr Darcy í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB There's no place for pride in this Austen misadventure Chloe Parker was born two centuries too late A thirty nine year old divorced mother she runs her own antiue letterpress business is a lifelong member of the Jane Austen Society and gushes over everything Regency But her business is failing threatening her daughter's future What's a lady Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestSince libraries and bookstores are closed right now me and some friends have been exchanging small bags of books via porch drop off and then sanitizing them with wipes ofc DEFINITELY NOT MR DARCY was in my bag and when I found out it was based around the premise of a Regency themed reality television show I was ready to go full ham on this chick litOur heroine Chloe is a single mom in her late 30s yearning nostalgically for the days of yore in books when men courted women letters were hand written and dresses were elegant She s a Jane Austen fan because of course she is and in need of money so when she signs up for what she thinks is a Jane Austen game show she thinks the cat is in the reticule Unfortunately it isn t a game show it s a dating show and she s one of the finalistsEight ladies are competing for the heir to the estate Mr Wrightman who seems like a total Prince Charming on paper The catch is that they must obtain Accomplishment Points by doing appropriate ladylike activities like the languages of fans or sewing and unladylike behavior results in docking of said points If they perform well they get alone time with Mr Wrightman but if they fail well you re off and Bob s your uncleDEFINITELY NOT MR DARCY turned out to be just the light hearted read I needed right now I often find myself sighing nostalgically for the pretty costume dramas but this book solemnly disabused me of the notion that older is better with its horrors of lemon sueezed underarm deodorant once a week baths side sadle riding and oh yes chamberpots and rags Although what with all the toilet paper shortages here in the States that s a nearer horror than I feel comfy withChloe is a likable heroine and I liked all the cattiness with the other ladies especially Grace I think it s slower paced than some might like but it ended up working because of the time period and I learned a lot of new facts about Regency England The romance is very slow burn and has a very Austen like ending in that the heroine finds love but not at the cost of her dignity or self respect I felt like it was a very nice modern throwback to Austen romances which made me very happyI m giving this three stars because I m not sure I d read it again or that it s particularly memorable but it was a satisfying read and I had a good time living vicariously through Chloe as she had her preconceived notions about costume dramas and romance shattered3 stars

Summary Definitely Not Mr Darcy í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB T Midwest mom to genteel American heiress and win the money With no cell phones indoor plumbing or deodorant to be found she must tighten her corset and flash some ankle to beat out women younger cutthroat and less clumsy than herself But the witty and dashing Mr Wrightman proves to be a prize worth winning even if it means the gloves are of Please save me from the urge to read every Austenesue book that comes my way This one had way too many things going on and rarely were they things I want to read about The plot is not remotely believable for starters Chloe is a single mother who prefers the ways of the past and is trying to save her business and raise her young daughter So she leaves America to be in an immersive historical documentary in the English countryside which she has not really investigated well and surpriseturns out to be a Regency dating reality showThe narrative shows a real naivete about reality shows it seems unlikely Chloe would go through all this for a chance at money but no other renumeration she has even paid for her own plane tickets There is too much yucky detail about Regency living one charcter s entire purpose in the book seems to be to teach the reader that women who were menstruating were locked into their bedrooms for days at a time I know this is what happened back then but it would not happen to real women today on a show when it happened back then they didn t complain and wouldn t talk about it And the scene where the Chloe is filmed taking her first bath in a week after sweating mud and horseback riding in water that has been used by 4 or 5 other ladies is similarly unnecessary unbelievable and silly She snubs at every turn the appropriate food being served but rarely seems to make up any meals Meanwhile the men are all clean and given use of technology after hours but must chew cloves instead of using aspirin for a toothache The relationships with the servant actors is very muddy sometimes she learns about their real life sometimes she helps them with duties and sometimes accepts what they say about her role s limitations I can t even bear to go into the pregnant chaperone who wishes to have her baby in the style of Regency childbirth with Chloe as an assistant There also seems to be a real time aspect such that friends at home can see her videos and read the male lead s blogtweets but the show surely cannot be produced edited and broadcast while it is being lived There seems to be no particular timeline for the show it has been going on for weeks before she arrived but she somehow hasn t heard of it or seen what it was really about And finally she is somehow surprised at the end when things are revealed to be different from how they were represented I want to tell her they are all actors making a TV show dearOther than the historical stuff I was bothered by the antagonistic bent she shows toward her exhusband and father of her daughter She seperated from him because he was too distant and yet much of her distress is about his attempts to spend time with her evenings out and readjusted custody arrangements And finally the message about technology is unclear She overstates Chloe s wish for the ways of the past and at the end she decides that the internet will help her increase her business but the fact that she freaks out when giving up her mobile phone and texting muddies this too I don t know what editors and publishers are up to these days
