    OMG OMG Can I give 10 stars?I am so blown away that I can hardly find the words to write this review Oh My Gosh seem so lacking but I can’t stop myself from saying OMG OMGWe open with a Prologue at a crucial time in our story and Darcy uttering those famous words ‘I shall conuer this I shall’ The scene is rather shocking and we have to wonder what on earth brought Mr Darcy to this desperation Let me just say the la

    This book is a blend of Pride and Prejudice Groundhog Day with Bill Murray and new material I loved it It’s one of the most fun PP variations I’ve ever read and I’m astounded that it is only Beau North’s third published book and Brooke West’s second And I don’t see any pseudonyms listed on Goodreads for either of them The Many Li

    This is a Really fun book I've read other versions of Darcy mash up with Groundhog day but this one is probably the best Because this one has a great deal of humor and a great deal of introspection Following the disastrous proposal at Hunsford

The Many Lives of Fitzwilliam Darcy

Sight and no possible escape All that he holds dear his name his home his love remains ever out of reach How will he find his way back to his normal life Will one mistake haunt the rest of his days It will take all of his fortitude to weather the storms of his strange new fate and all of his courage to grasp the promise of his future. In the film Groundhog Day the character played by Bill Murray wakes each morning to realize he is reliving the same day over and over again There is a lesson to be learned here and it is not until the lesson is learned that he life can get back on track and move on to another dayWell Fitzwilliam Darcy has some lessons to be learned We know from reading Pride and Prejudice that when he takes to heart what Elizabeth has said about him during his horrendous proposal at Hunsford and mends his ways Mr Darcy finds love and a happy ending But his evolution from the stiff taciturn and superior being who arrived at the assembly to the kind accepting and loving man who returns to Longbourn to woo Elizabeth takes several months What would have happened if Darcy learned the lessons and was able to prevent Elizabeth s anger during the proposal by fixing the problems and misunderstandings in advanceIn The Many Lives of Fitzwilliam Darcy he is able to just that with one major caveat He does evolve and he does correct everything but only after replaying that same day over and over and over again Groundhog Day style Seriously it takes him a long time But for the other characters in the story no time has gone by at all This concept has been used before I recall reading one where Darcy relived the assembly day over and over and over again I apologize to that author as I cannot recall the title or author In that case Darcy had a chance to correct the original bad impression Here Darcy has much to overcome First he needs to decide if Elizabeth is really what he wants He then must identify what caused her great dislike of him and find a way to correct the impression Then he must find a way to get her to consider him as a suitorThis version by Beau North is very entertaining Darcy has a lot of experiences and plays a lot of mischief that luckily disappears the next day when the day is repeated But he does learn and he does change Slowly over time he begins to see what it will take to become the man worthy of a woman like Elizabeth and what changes he needs to make in his life to win her I very much enjoyed this story and highly recommend it to other JAFF lovers

Izabeth Bennet rejects his marriage proposal Fitzwilliam Darcy finds himself in the most unusual of circumstances At first believing the extraordinary turn of events has granted him an inexplicable boon he is eager to put the humiliating proposal behind him He soon discovers that he is trapped in the same waking dream with no end in. I read this for the first time August 18th and again today in order to refresh my memories in posting this reviewEvery once in a while we are offered to read a book with monumental differences with such creative changes on one hand but which preserves our dear couple s personalities and their final happiness so well that we are hard pressed not to describe all the delicious details in a review as we find it all so beautifully and satisfyingly rendered we are moved to share it all This is one such story I will attempt to curb my enthusiasmThe title had me wondering as to what it meant when I was first sent this book to read did it have to do with memory loss and another family or did it address the different stages of Darcy s life or even did he have two marriages with the first ending with a death It was intriguing to ponder these possibilities and yet it turned out that the book took a completely different approach from my initial predictions I was privileged to read this before its release and I must say the Prologue immediately grabbed me How can we not want to wrap our man safely in our embrace as he stands at the edge of a precipice in Kent and looks at the rocks below while he harbors such disparaging thoughts Yes he does step back but his fate has been put on hold as he must experience and reenact that fateful day the day when she refused him in Kent over and over and over again Sometimes life offers us second chances Hopefully we live and learn But what if we can t seem to get that second chance right Would the fates allow a retake Can a man of sense and education who has lived in the world who does indeed care for his friends and family correct what he intended to be entirely in their best interests What if the best of reasons has misguided his behaviors causing Darcy to lose count of his deeds while playing havoc on others lives What if all of the notches in his bedpost and all of the signs of his progress disappear the very next morning as he awakens to once again hear the lyrics Early one morning just as the sun was rising I heard a maid singing He comes to a point when with deadened senses he imagines that he never grows older or changes but experiences it all repeatedly again and again You may find it amusing exasperating or even ironic to read of the various approaches in Darcy s repertoire in his attempts to change the conseuences which have him trapped in an ill fated twilight zone Hiding the silverware riding posthaste to London and then again in the opposite direction making an accounting of events and their freuency consulting with the colonel or even with Charlotte The list goes onAnne smiled thinly There are moments when flattery is a pleasant necessity and I believe a marriage proposal is one Yes we onlookers in the reading audience may think that someone has that part of his problem in perspective As I approached the Epilogue for a second reading I could not get past the first part of their history I am sobbing openly sobbing So that box of tissues have it at your fingertipsPS I was reminded of Groundhog Day as I am sure many other readers will be too
