How to Fall in Love with a Man You Thought You Hated
by Elizabeth Adams
Publication Date: April 5, 2021
Paperback; 266 pages
Genre: Historical Romance/Austenesque
For Elizabeth Bennet, Charlotte is the friend who is—annoyingly—always right. Colonel Fitzwilliam is the mischievous brother she never had. And if their convictions that Mr. Darcy is in love with her are correct, he could be the lover she’s always wanted.
There’s only one problem—he tried to ruin her favorite sister’s life, and she made an absolute fool of herself in front of him.
Can lasting happiness come out of such a beginning? And can a man die from chasing a woman too quick to be caught? Darcy is about to find out.
Okay, stop. Just stop for a second. Can we all just take a moment to appreciate the genre classification of this novel? “Austenesque?” Not only have I not heard of that particular genre, but I want to a) tell everyone about it and b) have everything ever written that fits this genre. Luckily (!) we have Elizabeth Adams and her seriously brilliant spins on Pride and Prejudice.
Having fallen head-over-heels for Sons of Pemberley I was
chomping at the bit dying to read another of Elizabeth Adams’ novels, and was thrilled when I was offered a chance to read How to Fall in Love with a Man You Thought You Hated. And oh my stars, what a stunning novel! Elizabeth Adams has this incredible ability to re-write the story, while not re-writing the characters that you are already familiar with. She takes the characters, plunks them into new situations, introduces them to new friends, and while keeping them true to their origins, gives them new life. You will walk away from this novel with a happy heart, an intense love for Charlotte and Colonel Fitzwilliam and a sudden desire to have an entire book case devoted to Elizabeth Adams.
Bottom Line: The world needs more books in the Austenesque genre, and readers everywhere need more books from Elizabeth Adams. (Especially this reader. Just sayin’.)
