Who Needs Mr Darcy? (Paperback)Jean Burnett (author)
- 5+ in stock
PERFECT FOR FANS OF NETFLIX SENSATION BRIDGERTON AND JANE AUSTEN. This is the story of Lydia Bennet and her exploits in Regency London . . .
Mr Wickham turned out to be a disappointing husband in many ways, the most notable being his early demise on the battlefields of Waterloo. And so Lydia Wickham, nee Bennet, still not twenty and ever-full of an enterprising spirit, must make her fortune independently.
A lesser woman, without Lydia's natural ability to flirt uproariously on the dancefloor and cheat seamlessly at the card table, would swoon in the wake of a dashing highwayman, a corrupt banker and even an amorous Royal or two. But on the hunt for a marriage that will make her rich, there's nothing that Lydia won't turn her hand to . . .
Taking in London, Paris and Brighton, Who Needs Mr Darcy? details the charming, lively and somewhat dastardly further exploits of the youngest Bennet sister. Pride and Prejudice this isn't, and Mr Darcy certainly won't be rescuing her this time . . .

I found it quite entertaining and it made me laugh. I'm not a fan of the characters or the style of writing but it's entertaining.
