NEW RELEASES: What Would Lizzy Bennet Do? by Katie Oliver

The latest novel from Katie Oliver (author of Prada and Prejudice) is due for release next week. What Would Lizzy Bennet Do? is the first of a series of three Jane Austen-inspired novels, and focuses on Lizzy, whose new love interest just so happens to be already engaged.

When your name is Lizzy Bennet, and the object of your affections just happens to have the surname Darcy, it seems fitting that life should imitate art, and you should end up together – right?

So when a film crew arrive to shoot Pride and Prejudice’ at the Darcy estate next door to the Bennet home, and Hugh Darcy arrives home after 8 years away, Lizzy knows that their time has finally come. Until, that is, he introduces her to Holly – his fiancĂ©e…

What is Lizzy to do? It can’t hurt that Holly knows nothing about country life, and that her ex-boyfriend and film star Ciaran Duncan just happens to be the main star of the new movie. And it’s clear that Lady Darcy does not approve of Holly either. Lizzy knows Holly isn’t right for Hugh, but can she make him see that and get her Austen ending after all?

The next novel in the series - The Trouble With Emma - will be out in February, followed by Who Needs Mr Willoughby? in March.
