What would happen if the traumas of teenage life and love from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice were transferred to the twenty-first century?
When Mrs. Bennet inherits enough money to move into the kind of village she has always dreamed of, her daughters find themselves swept up in a glamorous life of partying and country pursuits.
But Lizzie and her sisters soon discover that, beneath the very smart surface, lurks a web of intrigue and rivalries...

I don't know how i feel about this book, i liked it but at the same time i felt a tad strange about it because so much was changed and i was also  comparing it to The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and for me there was a lot changed that didn't need to be changed like Mr Darcy's name has changed from Fitzwilliam to James, Charlotte to Emily, Katherine De Burgh to Katrina, Georgiana to Jenna. I honestly think most of these names could have been modernised and not changed completely so that bugged me.

Like i said i did enjoy it, it had a different take Story wise, and the ending i liked but it was just the characters and the way some of them acted so different from their original characters and it was too different for me. I have a feeling some people will love this book and some like me wont really know what to make of it and that is why i gave it 3 stars. 

Until Next Time
Happy Reading
