Me and Mr. Darcy

I was headed into the library to pick up some books I had on hold when I walked by the "new books" shelves and this little gem was looking at me begging me to take it home. So, I have begun this book, Me and Mr. Darcy, and put the other books - which I have waited for and planned on- on the night-stand (okay, maybe the floor next to the night-stand - whatever!).
So far, 100 pages in, I am enjoying this book. I identify with the 29 year old main character (Emily), who instead of going on a 18 - 30 trip to Mexico chooses to go on a literary tour in England (I would totally love to do that). Yes, that may make me old or a kook, but I would so enjoy it. Will Emily find her own Mr. Darcy? Will she regret the book tour? Will the obnoxious reporter woo her? I don't know, but am looking forward to finding out.

Saw it at the library and picked it up...loved it!
Cute story. I think I need to read P & P again and maybe Bridget Jones Diary.

Good recommendation*

I bought it on impulse and had a great time reading it...pretty fluffy but a lovely escape when I just didn't want to "think".
