Goodreads:  Thirty-five-year-old American social media master Vanessa Roberts lives her thoroughly modern life with aplomb. So when her elderly Jane Austen centric aunt needs her to take on the public relations for Julian Chancellor, a very private man from England who’s written a book calledMy Year as Mr. Darcy, Vanessa agrees. But she’s not excessively diverted,” as Jane Austen would say.

Hardbound books, teacups, and quill pens fly in the face of her e-reader, coffee, and smartphone…

…Until she sees Julian take his tight breeches off for his Undressing Mr. Darcy show, an educational "striptease” down to his drawers to promote his book and help save his crumbling estate. The public relations expert suddenly realizes things have gotten…personal. But can this old-fashioned man claim her heart without so much as a GPS? It will take three festivals filled with Austen fans, a trip to England, an old frenemy, and a flirtatious pirate re-enactor to find out….


Kritters Thoughts:  Vanessa grew up with her aunt as her sole provider and grew up knowing the world of Jane Austen, but not appreciating the stories that Jane Austen has given the world.  Through certain events Vanessa starts to learn how Austen fans become so hooked!  

A little disjointed and for some reason I felt like the story just jumped from thought to thought and wished it had a little more flow.  There were a few moments where I had to stop and reread to make sure I hadn't missed something, a little frustrating.  I think if you are quite the Austen fan you could look past this and enjoy the story more than I did.


Rating: enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from Penguin.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
