Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe - Melissa de la Cruz
And it was. It's a warm story, stereotypical romance, and all-around entertaining book.
It was slow. The plot seemed to rely too much on already knowing Pride and Prejudice, and just lacked description or anything to make it seem a bit more relatable to a modern-day audience. It's all well and good swapping a classic to a modern setting, but some of the ideas (like Darcy's father wanting her to get married to someone and her not wanting to) just seem outdated and just out of place in a modern novel.
If typical romances are your thing, then this is great. But if you want to get your teeth into something with depth... maybe not.
I received an ARC for an honest review from Hodder & Stoughton and NetGalley, and although it may not be my sort of book, you may well enjoy it.
