This book is a collection of three short stories by three different authors. One story I really liked. The other two I skimmed and sometimes downright skipped.
“Christmas Present by Amanda Grange” imagines if Darcy never went back to see Elizabeth at the end of Pride and Prejudice. What if they never resolved their differences and got together? Enter three ghosts: the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present and the Ghost of Christmas Future. Through these Dickens-like visitations, Darcy makes a decision that changes their future forever.
Um, yeah, it was cheesy, and I skipped it.
“A Darcy Christmas” by Sharon Lathan. Jane just recently had a baby, and a very pregnant Elizabeth wants to visit her and the new baby over the holidays. This story was actually a lot of fun. No skimming here! I read every word and enjoyed every word!
Mr. Darcy’s Christmas Carol by Carolyn Eberhart.
This short story is a glimpse of the Darcy family over a few Christmases. I skimmed it because there was a lot of sex in this one. I would rather hear about my parent’s sex life than Darcy and Elizabeth. Both topics should be off limits.
