Review: What Would Lizzy Bennet Do ? - Katie Oliver

What Would Lizzy Bennet Do? (The Jane Austen Factor, #1)
Review: What Would Lizzy Bennet Do ? - Book #1 The Jane Austen Factor -Katie Oliver - January 2016

Growing up with the name Lizzy Bennet and living in the same town as a wealthy family called "The Darcy's" has to mean something doesn't it ? For Lizzy Bennet - the middle sister , for the past eight years she has been head over heels in love with Hugh Darcy - the older of the Darcy Boys. Lizzy is excited as she has recieved news that Hugh is finally coming home and what perfect timing to come home as currently a film set is using their property as a backdrop for a Pride and Prejudice remake. It seems fate is pointing in their direction. That is until Hugh comes home with a woman in tow - Holly James - his new fiancee and heiress to a range of Department Stores around England. Lizzy is devastated , but soon she puts on her "WWLD" hat and challenges Holly to several activities as she tries to prove to Hugh that she is his perfect match and not Holly. Meanwhile , Lizzy's younger sister Charlotte has a Hollywood crush on actor Ciaran Duncan who is playing Mr. Wickham and it seems that if Charlotte is not careful - this couple may play out the roles of Lydia and Mr. Wickham as his life seems to resemble that of his role in the movie. If you love Jane Austen renditions and the tale of Pride and Prejudice set in a more contemporary setting , then you will agree with me when I say "It's a truth universally acknowledged, that every Austenite fan should read "What Would Lizzy Bennet Do ? by Katie Oliver this upcoming year".
