Unleashing Mr. Darcy by Teri Wilson
Release Date - January 2013
Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth
Unleashing Mr. Darcy is a one-sit kind of read. It's a modern day take on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, and the author starts off by sharing that it will contain snippets of the book and BBC miniseries. I'm one of the rare few who does not go crazy for Jane Austen, but Teri Wilson's story touched my heart.
Elizabeth Scott loves her job, but a disgruntled parent has led to her being on administrative leave. In the meantime, Elizabeth decides to enter the world of dog shows with her young spaniel. Her first show doesn't go as planned. She gets into a verbal sparring match with the sexy judge, Mr. Donovan Darcy.
Donovan is immediately drawn to Elizabeth, but he lives in London, and she's in New York City, so even he knows he'll never cross paths with her. That all changes when Elizabeth is offered a job helping a London breeder with her champion Border Collies. Elizabeth is suddenly living next door to Donovan and sparks are flying.
This is a sweet story with plenty of chemistry, a bit of the dog show circuit, and witty banter. I liked that mix and am curious to see what Teri Wilson has in store for readers with her next novel, Unmasking Juliet.
