Definitely Not Mr. Darcy

Chloe Parker is a complete Austen fan. Most days she feels as if she is from a different time period as she longs for those easy days of Austen’s. Chloe will have her chance to live the life with a documentary that will have several women dressing, acting and living the part of the Victorian lady. What Chloe did not know was this was not a documentary but a dating show to find who will win the heart of an English lord.

My cousin lent me the book giving rave reviews as we are both women who love the Victorian time period. Ironically I had seen this book before. The cover intrigued me and I had put it on my list of books but never went to find the book again.

The character of Chloe was wonderful. She was not the youngest heroine but a mature woman playing a game full of girls. Personally I thought all the characters were very intriguing to read about and how they interacted in this mock Victorian time period. The brothers were interesting when you read this book you will find out which one you like the most and I had my favorite. I liked Henry right from the beginning with his quiet ways but he had sarcasm down perfectly.

I had my suspicions with this story on what would happen. You read enough romances and you will have the clues to lead you. I had found out early or at least suspected but the journey was well worth the ride. I am a complete Jane Austen fan and this book was perfect. After reading this book I now know there would be a few things I would miss if I were truly back into the Regency time period.

At the end I had hoped for more but the ending gave you hope and a way back. This was a wonderful first book for the author Karen Doornebos and for those who love Jane Austen.
