about

Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe from New York Times bestselling author, Melissa de la Cruz, is a sweet, sexy and hilarious gender-swapping, genre-satisfying re-telling, set in contemporary America and featuring one snooty Miss Darcy.

Darcy Fitzwilliam is 29, beautiful, successful, and brilliant. She dates hedge funders and basketball stars and is never without her three cellphones-one for work, one for play, and one to throw at her assistant (just kidding). Darcy's never fallen in love, never has time for anyone else's drama, and never goes home for Christmas if she can help it. But when her mother falls ill, she comes home to Pemberley, Ohio, to spend the season with her family.

Her parents throw their annual Christmas bash, where she meets one Luke Bennet, the smart, sardonic slacker son of their neighbor. Luke is 32-years-old and has never left home. He's a carpenter and makes beautiful furniture, and is content with his simple life. He comes from a family of five brothers, each one less ambitious than the other. When Darcy and Luke fall into bed after too many eggnogs, Darcy thinks it's just another one night stand. But why can't she stop thinking of Luke? What is it about him? And can she fall in love, or will her pride and his prejudice against big-city girls stand in their way?

Melissa de la Cruz is the #1 New York Times,#1 Publisher's Weekly and #1 IndieBound bestselling author of many critically acclaimed and award-winning novels for readers of all ages including the Disney Descendants novels, Alex and Eliza, Blue Bloods and Witches of East End, a one-hour television drama on Lifetime. She lives in Los Ange...

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the best retellings of Pride and Prejudice Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe is a modern day retelling of Pride and Prejudice with a twist. I am an absolute fan of the Pride and Prejudice, so when I first heard about this book I was definitely interested in reading it to see what it was like. The flip of characters and general gender swap was so unique and well developed. Reading the role reversals, Darcy Fitwilliam is the woman and Luke Bennet is the male, was intriguing to say the least. It was something that drew me towards this book and brings a classic into modern society. Having read previous books based on Pride and Prejudice, this story has to be my favourite retelling of the classic. A lot happens when Darcy returns home for the holidays. Dealing with a strained relationship with her father, her mother's illness, and attending her parent's yearly Christmas party, Darcy has her work cut out for her. But what will happen when Darcy's world crashes in Luke Bennent's? The story was engaging, the characters were written so captivatingly, and there was some twists to keep readers (like myself) wanting to find out more about Darcy and Luke and what ultimately happens to them in the end. The lives of both Darcy and Luke were so satisfying to read. I only wished that the book was a little longer. I couldn't get enough of the characters. Especially the friendship between Darcy and Bingley Charles. Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe is filled with self discovery, second chances, and beautifully woven moments. This is a book you definitely have to read this holiday season, especially if you're a fan of romance and Jane Austen. eARC was kindly provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Fast and Fun P&P Retelling! Despite having never read any of Jane Austen's original works (I've seen some the movies) I'm a sucker for any retellings of hers especially those of Pride and Prejudice. I have a particular weakness for Mr. Darcy which I trust needs no explanation ;) This Christmas rendition was festive and fast-paced. Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe was a whirlwind of a romance story. Ms. Melissa De La Cruz does a great job of bringing out the holiday mood under which the family drama and romantic entanglements unfolded. I really enjoyed the gender-swapped twists to the story. It was powerful, refreshing and most of all fun. The story was a little different than what I would've imagined but I didn't like it any less for it. The characters were frustrating at times with their snap judgments but thankfully they didn't allow their poor decisions to drag on. Any issues were quickly resolved and the dramatics kept to a minimal. I never thought I'd ever say this but the amount of angst was kind of perfect. It was there but not stifling in its presence. Just enough to sweeten the ending. I'm thinking Melissa De La Cruz needs to write more gender-swapping retellings of all the classics. It would be even more perfect if they all had a festive edge. I'm sure they will be so delightful I'll gobble them all up in no time like I did with Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe!
