Based on the enduring characters created by Jane Austen, this is a contemporary spin on a classic tale of love denied and love discovered.
Christmas just became a lot more complicated for dog psychologist Lizzie Bennet and her sisters. While shopping in London, they find little urchin Annie and her dog, Sammy. As a fierce snowstorm takes over the city, the aloof but alluring Mister Darcy invites the girls, including Annie and Sammy, to spend the night at his penthouse.
With the best of intentions, Darcy asks Annie and her seven siblings to join the Bennet sisters for a quiet Christmas Eve celebration in his London fortress. The skulduggery begins when Caroline Bingley – the villainess Austen fans love to boo – shows up acting the part of the Grinch and Scrooge combined.
Barbara Silkstone is the best-selling author of 10 novels and four box sets. Her comedy mysteries feature goodhearted heroines caught up in screwball situations.
Mister Darcy’s Christmas is the second book in Silkstone’s Mister Darcy series of light comedies based on Jane Austen’s timeless tales of jolly old England.
