First Impressions: A Contemporary Retelling of Pride and Prejudice.
Lawyer Eddi Boswick tries out for a production of Pride and Prejudice in her small Texas town. When she’s cast as the lead, Elizabeth Bennet, her romantic co-star is none other than the town’s most eligible–and arrogant–bachelor.
Both of these books are the same. The one on the left is the updated version. Instead of a palm pilot, it is a cell phone. I did not see any other huge changes. Which I am glad of since this book is super good.
This book (whether you read the new edition or the old one) is a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice. I read this book before but when I was looking at books that Bethany House Publishers was publishing this year, I saw this one. I had to read it, again. It was just as good as I remembered. I did read the new version. With the exceptions of the minor changes I mentioned earlier, it is the same as the original version. Smith only made a few of her own changes to the story but they were done very well and fit the times.
Eddie and Dave played there role as Elizabeth and Darcy very well. Actually every character in the story was well written. The setting of the book, instead of taking place in England, took place in London, Texas. I thought that was creative on the part of the author. So, to sum everything up, I liked this book very much, the story was well thought out and the characters well written.
If you have not read this book, I highly recommend it.

I received this book from the Bethany House Publishing of the Baker Publishing Group for this review.
This review is written in my own words and is my honest opinion.
