Book Description

17 May 2012
BEWITCHED, BODY AND SOUL is an engaging Pride and Prejudice "what-if" story about Darcy and Elizabeth and a different path to happily ever after. "Dixon has created a new variation of a classic favorite that is just as romantic and engaging as the original. In all, I foresee Dixon becoming more and more popular as people begin to discover her creative literary voice. I urge you to begin discovering her works on your own as they will be a delight to read." ~ Austenprose.com What Readers Are Saying: "This novel had all the essential elements of the original Pride and Prejudice story, but at each turn it was creatively manipulated on a new path that Dixon creates." "Dixon does a marvelous job of letting the wordplay between Darcy and Elizabeth become unintentional verbal foreplay between the characters. It's a quick, romantic read that I'm sure to revisit again and again!" Determined to right a wrong against her family, Elizabeth ventures to town to reunite her sister with her lover. In so doing, will she end up losing her own heart? Bent on discovering the reason for Bingley's hasty departure from Netherfield, Elizabeth goes to town in Jane's stead. Her initial scheme having been thwarted and with nowhere else to go, she turns to one who is sure to put her in Bingley's path--Mr. Darcy. Darcy realizes it will take more than time and distance to erase the memory of the beguiling country miss. When she arrives unescorted on his doorstep, will he help her? Or will he soon discover he is in grave danger of falling as much in love with her as ever before? And what of his best friend's younger sister who has long had Darcy in her sights? Will Darcy pursue the young lady who meets Society's expectations of just what the next mistress of Pemberley ought to be or will he follow his heart?

The first thing you need to do when starting this book is forget any previous knowledge you have of how people of the period (both men and women) should behave. If you take that out of the equation and apply modern rules to the scenario you'll have a better chance of getting through it.

Overall, it's a reasonable story and not a bad read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lighthearted fun 10 Feb 2013

I enjoyed the variation to the original, found it light hearted and fun. The written language, in my opinion, did not hold up the original of Jane Austen but it did not ruin the book and the pleasure of getting involved in the characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars A quick and easy read! 7 May 2012
By Stephanie Hamm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story had all the basic elements of Pride and Prejudice (Bingley's abandonment, Hunsford-type proposal, Wickham & Lydia's elopement), all jumbled up, but fitting together perfectly. There was no overly dramatic, intense angst but just enough to keep the reader wanting more - just like canon. The author managed a create a story very much like the original Pride and Prejudice but with her own flare. There are new characters thrown in to make it even more interesting.

After Bingley leaves Meryton and Jane behind, Jane goes into a sort of depression and refuses to go to town with her aunt and uncle. Elizabeth is determined to track Bingley down to set things straight so takes Jane's place in going to London. While there she's lied to by the Bingley sisters so decides to go to the next best source - Darcy. She shows up unannounced to ask for his assistance in talking with Bingley. Darcy refuses to help and Elizabeth is left to fend for herself.

Not willing to give up hope in reuniting Bingley with Jane, Elizabeth is thrust into the Season hoping to come face-to-face with the wayward suitor. During this time she meets new people which coincidentally puts her into frequent contact with Darcy. Meanwhile, Darcy has determined that it is time to find a wife. Unfortunately he can not get Elizabeth out of his head.

As Darcy and Elizabeth spend time together, Darcy lets go of some of his aloof behavior and Elizabeth starts to feel a sort of friendship with him. That is until she discovers that he is the main reason Bingley left Jane. Just like P&P the proposal goes up in flames, and what a proposal it is! Darcy wants to make things right with Elizabeth and Elizabeth is left with little hope, especially since Wickham strikes again.

Never fear, our dear couple reach their happily ever after.

This was a wonderful 'what-if' tale and I enjoyed it very much!!

5.0 out of 5 stars In essentials I believe it to be very much the same... 7 May 2012
By BooksHugBack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Bewitched Body and Soul by P.O. Dixon is a What-If? Pride and Prejudice adaptation sought to answer the question what would have happened had Elizabeth went off to London instead of Jane. Seeking to fix the misunderstanding between Mr. Bingley and Jane, Elizabeth is determined to mend Jane's broken-heart and convince Mr. Bingley of Jane's true feelings despite her reserved and shy nature. Finding that calling on Caroline Bingley to be less than helpful, Elizabeth seeks out Mr. Darcy for his help. After failing to gain his support as well, Elizabeth falls ill at Darcy's home and he seeks to care for her, but finds himself thwarted by his own actions and opinions to gain her favor over and over again. Blind to Mr. Darcy's feelings, Elizabeth is thrown into London society with the hopes of both enjoying the season and re-uniting her beloved sister with Mr. Bingley.

This novel had all the essential elements of the original Pride and Prejudice story, but at each turn it was creatively manipulated on a new path that Dixon creates. With each plot development it was interesting to see how different characters said familiar lines. Instead of a common What-If? that inserts some change and then continues forward in an alternate universe often times changing completely, this one was uniquely similar. Similar dialogue was spoken by different people, and similar events happened in a different order or in a different place with new people. It was very creatively done and I enjoyed it greatly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this story! 3 Jun 2012
By G. Meisner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished this book and was very sad to see it end. I have read many Darcy and Elizabeth what ifs and this was definitely one of the better ones that I have come across. Even though I know the story by heart this book took Jane Austens version and puts a nice spin on it, I was sorry to see it end!

2.0 out of 5 stars Can't understand all of these 5-star reviews 12 July 2012
By ACD - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is about the 10th P&P alternative I have bought and read. I was very excited that every review for this story was so positive and bought it without hesitation. I must say that I cannot understand how anyone could rate this 5 stars. The flow of the book was awful; there were times when I wondered if I had accidentally skipped an entire chapter because so many things were skipped. I understand that this is more a novella due to its shorter length, so of course, it would not be as detailed... but that doesn't explain the major jumps in plot. When Elizabeth accepts Darcy's proposal, I was not ready for it as I felt Elizabeth's emotions had not had time to transform enough. And so many things were wrapped up way too tidily, so much so that they almost seemed irrelevant to the whole story (i.e. Sir Boxley and his mistress). I found myself skimming the last two chapters just to finish the book. I would not read this author again without reading a sample first. I usually do not take the time to review my kindle purchases, but I felt I needed to warn others to save their money. I gave the story two stars because I like the idea of Elizabeth confronting Darcy in London.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Austenesque Fiction 19 Jun 2012
By L. Hartness - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice", Miss Elizabeth Bennet comes from a modest family of five sisters. Her most dear sibling Jane develops an affection for the delightful and wealthy Charles Bingley, who is obviously far above her in the social strata. His close friend, the sometimes haughty Fitzwilliam Darcy, feels it is in Charles' best interest to not become involved with the lovely yet middle-class Jane Bennet and takes measures to keep them apart.

In "Bewitched, Body and Soul", author P.O. Dixon develops Austen's original plot in similar and entirely new ways. Miss Elizabeth discovers Darcy's efforts to thwart this budding romantic relationship and is horrified at his assumptions and interference. Seeing Jane's dejected state of mind, she takes it upon herself to call on Mr. Darcy to try to right the wrong he has done. Unfortunately, she is caught in a rainstorm and is forced to spend more solitary time with Darcy than she had ever intended.

P.O. Dixon's novel may be a brief one at only 165 pages, but what it lacks in length it makes up for in quality. The writing is superb, balancing modern readability with period customs and turns of phrase. The characterization of these classic figures is just perfect; the choices made in this incarnation of Austen's world could easily have been made in the original work. And while the plot choices were very reasonable for the genre, I was kept guessing in between the established beginning and the expected outcomes.

I also appreciated Dixon's choice in keeping things very chaste in her romantic scenes. There is certainly more detail than was given in Austen's original work, but compared to many Austenesque novels in today's market, this one is decidedly clean. "Bewitched, Body and Soul" may have a sultry title, but in its world, the ultimate gentleman not only feels great passion, but he is devoted enough to his future bride to keep it in check until the appointed time.

"Bewitched, Body and Soul" cannot be recommended highly enough. I have given it a rare five-star review here on Amazon. My only complaint for this novel would be that I wish it had been longer. Dixon could easily have spent more time with Jane, Bingley and Caroline, giving us more of her excellent storytelling. This was my first exposure to her writing, and I'm eagerly looking forward to reading more of her. I offer my highest praise to P.O. Dixon, and congratulate her on a fabulous work of Austenesque fiction.
