REVIEW: Mr. Darcy's Christmas Bride by Elizabeth Goodrich

Book Blurb: Elizabeth Bennet's favorite season has come at last, and she is delighted in the new traditions and celebrations that are coming to Meryton. Christmas trees, a ball, and lovely gifts promise that this will be the most delightful year yet, save for one man's sour disposition.

Fitzwilliam Darcy, and his abhorrence of all things Christmas.

Can she convince this man in mourning that there are further delights to be found in the season than he anticipates? Determined to show him that it is so, she joins him in finding decorations for Netherfield Park, proves to be a worthy combatant in a snowball fight, and presents him with a gift that just might touch his frozen heart. Can she remind him of the magic of Christmas, and help him to put his grief behind him?

My Review: I went into this novella a little apprehensive as I have never read anything from this relatively new author but I actually really enjoyed it. Darcy was hot and cold to Elizabeth throughout most of this story. Like I get why he was sort of a dick but I really enjoyed when Elizabeth managed to draw him out of his shell. I really enjoy Mr. Collins in this tale as he wasn't an idiot and was a great storyteller. I don't want to say anymore as I don't want to give away any of the plot.

This is a great Christmas JAFF novella and I really recommend reading it during the holiday season.

Rating: 4½ stars out of 5
