Book Review & GIVEAWAY: Bewitched, Body and Soul By P.O. Dixon


**Sigh** Love. That's how I felt after I finished Bewitched, Body and Soul. It left me with a warm fuzzy feeling inside. It had all the elements of Pride and Prejudice but they were a little mixed up. Fun! 
In this story, after the Netherfield ball, Jane receives Caroline's letter implying Bingley’s preferance for Georgiana, leaving Jane in despair. As a result, Elizabeth goes to London to visit the Gardiners in her stead. Sure of Bingley’s love for Jane, Elizabeth sets out to find the truth. She goes to see Caroline first. With no luck there, she goes to Darcy House where she finds her self alone with Mr. Darcy. In her quest to find the truth will Elizabeth find herself in a compromising position with Mr. Darcy?
Caroline is not the only woman in the story vying for Mr. Darcy’s attention. Lady Gwendolen is also trying to become Mistress of Pemberley, the only difference ... she is much more agreeable than Caroline. 
Georgiana also plays a key-role in bringing our two lovers together. I liked how she informs Elizabeth about Wickham’s deceit.
This was a quick, fun read. I enjoyed seeing everything play out a little different but of course end up with a happily ever after! If you love JAFF, you won’t want to miss this one!

I won my copy of Bewitched, Body and Soul from Leatherbound Reviews.

Giveaway is over.


About the Author:


P O Dixon writes Jane Austen Pride and Prejudice adaptations with one overriding purpose in mind—falling in love with Darcy and Elizabeth all over again. Her initial exposure to Pride and Prejudice was in 2007. After watching the 2005 film at least two times a day for as many weeks, she determined she needed to know much more of the story's hero. After reading the novel, along with several excellent ‘what-if’ books that told the story from Mr. Darcy’s perspective, she came across a link to the online Jane Austen Fan Fiction community. Her life has never been quite the same. 
She lives in North Carolina with her husband and preteen daughter, Elizabeth.
