REVIEW: Cupid's Traps by Sarah Johnson

Received a copy in exchange for an honest review

Book Blurb: William Shakespeare said it best when he penned, ‘Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps’. Georgiana Darcy, in her first matchmaking adventure, might need to call in a few favors from her family, or even Cupid himself, in order to pull off the perfect match for her brother, Fitzwilliam Darcy. He is truly smitten, but the lady, Miss Elizabeth Bennet, is not impressed with his character. Within the throes of Cupid’s traps, will she finally see that her heart is touched by this handsome gentleman before these traps force them into a union?

My Review:  So at the beginning of each chapter we get a little journal entry from Georgiana telling her side of the story and sometimes we get some journal entries in the middle of the chapters as well. This novella had me laughing throughout the majority of it. Especially the part where Lady Catherine got attacked by one of her own birds ands it knocks her wig off. Lizzy is just a little too head strong in this novella. She repeatedly refuses Mr. Darcy's offers of marriage even when they don't have a choice but to marry because of Maria Lucas and Mrs. Jenkinson gossiping leads to scandal, both in Meryton and London. What really got me hooked into reading this book was the second paragraph where we learn that Darcy has been tied up in a boat. It made me want to read it to find out what happened. 

The only thing that got to me was that I can't really see Georgiana spying on her brother and Lizzy. She even at one point locks them in a walk in birdcage. However this was a delightful read. With that being said you should click on the link below and buy your own copy.
