Definitely Not Mr. Darcy by Karen Doorneboos
Chloe Parker, a divorced mother in need of money for her failing business, is also a life-long member of the Jane Austen Society. When an opportunity to be a part of a documentary set in England’s Regency era is offered to her, with the potential for her to receive prize money, she can’t believe her luck! Upon arrival, she finds out that the documentary is actually a reality show in which contestants must outperform each other in all the challenges of Regency life to win the handsome and very wealthy Mr. Wrightman and the prize money.
I am a fan of Jane Austen myself, so when I saw the title I knew I had to read this book. I really enjoyed this lighthearted novel and how Doorneboos spread facts and humour throughout the book. If you’re a fan of Jane Austen themed stories with a modern twist, this book is definitely for you.
