Sincerely Yours is the second book in Robin M. Helm’s Yours by Design series. Beware, you must read Accidentally Yours, book 1, before reading this book as it has a continuing storyline. For a brief recap of book 1: After an accident, suffered simultaneously, Fitzwilliam Darcy (late 1700s) and Will Darcy (present day) switch places in time. Fitzwilliam wakes up in a modern hospital not understanding modern technology, and Will finds himself in Kent, 1795, Rosings Park.
Sincerely Yours is a fun book to read. First off, watching Fitzwilliam try to maneuver in the modern world is pretty funny! There are so many mannerisms that he just doesn't get or understand. On the other hand, Will has a good grasp of history dealing in the late 1700s and early 1800s. He fits in quickly, but he has other problems to deal with, like trying to repair the damage Fitzwilliam has done to Elizabeth and her family. Plus, he’s finding the real life of the Darcy’s and Bennet’s a bit different than in the book, Pride and Prejudice.
I was so glad to like Fitzwilliam again! I was not a fan of his in the first book. The jolt of suddenly being in the 21st century, being able to see his life through the film versions of Pride and Prejudice, and being a captive audience of Mrs. Thomas and Lance, his nurse and physical therapist, help him become a much better person!
Ooh, and I liked the introduction of the present-day Elizabeth Bennet! She has a sister named Jane and a rake like Wickham (named Greg) in her past. Will Fitzwilliam fall in love with her, and possibly persuade Elizabeth to fall in love with him?
I like the idea of seeing what’s going on in both time periods simultaneously, but I also found that it broke the flow of the story too much for me to get hooked. Maybe it was the limited reading time I had, but it wasn’t until near the end that I became hooked, and now I’m looking forward to the next book to come out!
I enjoyed reading Sincerely Yours, and I’m really looking forward to reading the next book of the series, Forever Yours!
