REVIEW: Designed For Each Other by P.O. Dixon

Book Blurb: Make room, Mrs. Bennet. It's Charlotte's turn to play matchmaker for Mr. Darcy and her intimate friend, Elizabeth. Mr. Darcy has a second chance to court Miss Elizabeth Bennet after his disastrous marriage proposal, thanks largely to Mrs. Collins's timely intervention. As a result of an incident at Rosings, Darcy and Elizabeth find themselves suddenly engaged to each other.

Elizabeth respects Mr. Darcy. She likes him very much. But, what if she fears she is not indeed in love with the gentleman? What if Elizabeth is persuaded she does not really know what love is?

Darcy’s heart belongs to Elizabeth. What must he do to convince her that her heart belongs to him?

My Review: This book takes place right after the proposal at Hunsford and this time it's Charlotte that plays matchmaker after she finds the letter that Darcy gives Lizzy. So ODC comes to an understanding earlier than canon and ironically it's Lady Catherine that makes Lizzy accept him. You'll still hate Caroline Bingley and Lady Catherine in this story. I loved how Jane didn't just immediately back into Bingley's arms after he comes back, hell Colonel Fitzwilliam and her actually flirt with each other. I see Colonel Fitzwilliam as a better choice for Jane than Bingley ever will be.

This book is a fast read and I would have finished it faster if I could get the people in my house to leave me alone for a minute. This book is another winner from P.O. Dixon and I can't wait to see what she'll come up with next.

Rating: 4½ stars out of 5
