REVIEW: Impertinent Strangers by P.O. Dixon

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Book Blurb: Insults and Disdain. Intrigue and Desire.

An impertinent stranger gets thrown into Fitzwilliam Darcy's path, and even though he declares her tolerable but not handsome enough to tempt him, it is all he can do not to think of her.

Upon first making Mr. Darcy's acquaintance, Miss Elizabeth Bennet is quite fascinated with him. Then she discovers that the gentleman is haughty and above his company, and she wants nothing to do with him.

Still, the prospect of spending time in each other's company is beyond their power to resist. Will Darcy and Elizabeth quit lying to themselves and find in the other what's been missing in their lives?

My Review: What if Darcy and Elizabeth had met at Rosings instead of in Hertfordshire? The Darcy in this novel is still a jerk when he meets our dear Lizzy and he still utters that oh so famous line but says it to Richard and not to Bingley. We don't even get to see Bingley until almost the end of the book. Our dear couple are so impertinent to each other when they meet (hence the title of the book). Lady Catherine and Anne are both pieces of work though Lady Catherine is the bigger of the two. And don't even get me started on Wickham but I love how Lydia spent all his money. Lol.

I do wish that this book was a little longer and things seemed to work themselves out way to fast. I get it that Lizzy and Darcy need to get to their happily ever after but it just seemed a little rushed to me. However, other than that this is another great novel from Ms. Dixon.

Rating: 4½ stars out of 5
