Dear Miss Darcy (The UK Edition)
Packed with British spellings, slang, and terminology, here at last is the UK version of Dear Miss Darcy. Descended from England’s greatest love story, Olivia Darcy stumbled into the job of love advice columnist. But she’s never had a successful romance of her own–a secret in danger of being exposed when a letter in her column sparks a feud with one of London’s most famous playboys. More
Fans and critics alike have requested it–a more authentic British version of Dear Miss Darcy–and now it’s here. Packed with UK spellings, slang, and terminology, from lifts and dustbins to diaries and windscreens, while retaining the same Austenesque plot and language as before.
Pert, overly-confidant Olivia Darcy seems to have it all: looks, a lively personality, a successful career as a love advice columnist, and a connection to Jane Austen's greatest love story. Being the descendant of Lizzie and Darcy, however, hasn't guaranteed her a happy ending in love–in fact, Miss Darcy seems cursed by disaster and destined for a romantically-lonely life.
But when a letter from a girl known as "Cottingley" pits Miss Darcy against Britain's most notorious bachelor, the seemingly dark and brooding Christopher Stanley, something's bound to change...as contentious banter, willful misunderstandings, and assumed perfections begin to unravel.
In the spirit of Shakespeare's Benedict and Beatrice (definitely not Romeo and Juliet) emerges a modern take on Austen's Pride and Prejudice. With a twist of love-hate romance, a dash of mild public scandal, and more than a few Jane Austen references, authors Briggs and Burgess draw on the world of Austen for a lightly-comic tale of not-so opposites, with characters whose romantic barbs are a tongue-in-cheek tribute to Jane herself.
