A Darcy Christmas (review book)

A Darcy Christmas

This book is a nice holiday read geared to fans of Jane Austen.  Three short stories, using Darcy and Elizabeth from Austen's Pride and Prejudice, center around Christmas.  The first story has Darcy being Scrooge from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.  I liked the twist of using a twist on a classic within a twist of a classic.  The other two stories pick up where Pride and Prejudice left off and continue the story of Darcy and Lizzy and their families.  Christmas is the focus and is used to marked births, deaths, happiness and family moments.  The three writers stick to Austen's style and her ideas of the characters.  I enjoyed this book a lot, and I am one who does not read many holiday books.  This book was sent to me by SourceBooks to review.
