Book Review – Project Darcy by Jane Odiwe


If you love Jane Austen’s work, but are slightly overwhelmed by the many prequels and sequels available on the market, something slightly different would certainly fit the bill to savour those Austen cravings. Project Darcy is just that; It has all the charm and wit of Austen, with the twist to keep you enthralled throughout.

Starting off with just a hint here and there of the mystery to be revealed, Jane Odiwe tempts you to read page after page. You’ll recognise certain attributes of Pride and Prejudice along the way, with modern characters intertwining with the beloved Bennet sisters and of course Darcy and Bingley. You’ll also gain glimpses of the lady herself, set in her home of Steventon Rectory. The flashbacks to see a young Jane Austen were wonderfully written and delicately done. A delight for any Jane Austen fan to read.

Writing much more about this wonderful could possibly spoil the twists and turns along the way, so I will leave it to you to find out more!
