Are you ready to go on a Jane Austen fantasy holiday at a Regency era grand manor house in England to find your Mr. Darcy? If so, be prepared for some off color humor and stinging jabs at Jane Austen fandom. British actor J.J. Feild as Mr. Nobly saved this film for me.

  3. Laurel Ann,
    This list is *wonderful* ;) . I especially loved seeing books by friends — YAY to Shannon Winslow, Syrie James, and Kim Wilson!! Each one of their books is marvelous. And a good friend from high school just sent me the Marrying Mr. Darcy card game! It’s very cool (and complicated, LOL). I just need to find a few Janeites to play it with…
    Happy Holidays!!
    p.s. I want that 1894 P&P Kindle cover, too ;) .
