Book Blurb: A modern love story with a Jane Austen twist.. .
Marine biologist Cassie Boulton has no patience when a modern-day Mr. Darcy appears in her lab on Cape Cod. Proud, aloof Calder Westing III is the scion of a famous political family, while Cassie's success is hard-won in spite of a shameful family history.
When their budding romance is brutally thwarted, both by his family and by hers, Calder tries to set things right by rewriting the two of them in the roles of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet from Pride & Prejudice...but will Cassie be willing to supply the happy ending?
Book Review: I really enjoyed this book. Ms. Reynolds has a great writing style and she certainly knows her Jane Austen. I found this book endearing and sweet. It is also steamy and surprising. There are some great plot twists here and there and you can pretty much match the characters from page one. There were a couple of things that I did not like. I didn't like the almost entire recap in the middle, I understand we needed to know the other side but it felt a bit redundant. Also, the book could have ended so much sooner than it actually did, I would have been fine with that. I did enjoy this book a lot and have already looked into getting some more of Ms. Reynolds' works.
