REVIEW: Darcy and Deception by Victoria Kincaid

Book Blurb: Returning home from Kent, Elizabeth Bennet is still distressed over Mr. Darcy’s insulting marriage proposal. However, her attention is diverted by the local militia commander who asks her to observe Wickham, now suspected of being a French spy. Pretending to be besotted with Wickham, Elizabeth accompanies the regiment when they relocate to Brighton.

Darcy arrives at Longbourn with the intention of making amends to Elizabeth, only to discover that she is now at Brighton with Wickham. Desperate to save her from the scoundrel, Darcy follows her to the seaside, where he hopes to woo her away from the other man.

Deception piles on top of deception as Elizabeth attempts to carry out her mission without betraying confidences—or breaking Darcy’s heart. However, the French plot runs deeper than she knows; soon she and Darcy are plunged into the confusing and dangerous world of international espionage. Can Darcy and Elizabeth escape with their lives and their love intact?

My Review: I went into this book not knowing a thing about it but it didn't disappoint. Can I say I love stories where Darcy and Lizzy are put into situations where they have to act as a spy, it makes the story much more exciting. I really enjoyed the agony Darcy went through with trying to discover if Elizabeth loved Wickham or not. I also didn't see that plot twist coming at the end of the book. This book was a fast read for me and I recommend reading it especially if you love a dash of spies mixed in with your Pride and Prejudice.

Rating: ★★★★★
