Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe Read Online Free - 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 dad and little brother.
Her parents throw their annual Christmas bash, where she meets one Luke Bennet, the smart, sardonic slacker son of their neighbor. Luke is 32 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?

This was okay. It was cute enough, a fun and quick read, but it didn’t have a lot of substance to it. I felt at times like I was watching a Hallmark movie while at other times I really appreciated what was being said (particularity about Darcy being an independent successful woman). This was...

I AM SO SAD right now. This had so much potential (a gender-swapped modernization of P&P at Christmas) but ended up being one of the most cringeworthy books I've ever read. The grown adults read like tweens and I just... I can't even review this. It's that bad. And there are very few books I...

RATING 3.5 STARS
Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe is the first book I have read by Melissa de la Cruz. This is a modern day retelling of the classic, Pride and Prejudice.
Darcy Fitzwilliam is a twenty nine year old woman from Pemberly, Ohio that fled small town life to make her fortune in New Yor...

Darcy Fitzwilliam is twenty nine and extremely career orientated much to the dismay of her family. She doesn't like heading home to visit and getting the same old treatment of when she'll settle down and get married and would much prefer to continue to throw all of her attention at her career. Ho...

HO HO HO...ly Cow. I can't believe I didn't DNF this one.
This modern-day, gender-swapped version of the classic has about as much charm as Alvin & the Chipmunks singing "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" -- on repeat.
NOTHING about this story makes sense:
- Our 29 year old female protagonist...

This book had a great premise, and I really liked the idea of gender-swapped characters as an interesting twist! Sadly, it was terrible. Just, terrible.
Honestly the writing was just bad. I have never read any of this authors books before, so perhaps I just don't like her style of writing, but th...

lmao I hated this. I'm also convinced this was ghost-written or was never edited.
I gave it two stars because it was so much fun and so easy to make fun of it.
This had so much potential to be so awesome and amazing but instead it was rushed, full of plot holes, and so many redemption arc's that I...

This was bad. Real bad -- though, yes, I did still read it.
I have a soft spot for Pride and Prejudice adaptations. Every now and then one I find one that's well written and it conjures up just a little bit of the same magic I felt when reading Pride and Prejudice for the first time as a teenager....

Full Review: Thank you so much to NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for providing me with a copy of this delightful “Pride and Prejudice” retelling by Melissa de la Cruz to read and review. I absolutely adored it! This super-cute retelling features a female Darcy Fitzwilliam and a male Luke Bennet...

I could not get into this one and De La Cruz did not really try to make the character's more original and modernized version of Austen's characters. I should have not bothered I really do not like De La Cruz's writing and this one was no different.
