Abigail Reynolds is a physician and a lifelong Jane Austen enthusiast. She began writing the Pride and Prejudice Variations series in 2001, and encouragement from fellow Austen fans convinced her to continue asking "What if...?" She lives with her husband and two teenage children in Madison, Wisconsin.
"This might be my favorite of Reynolds' variations, because I really enjoyed the changes to Darcy and Elizabeth's circumstances here...The trials that Reynolds has them face are exhilarating to read, and had me exceedingly pleased with the outcome. Reynolds must be patted on the back for yet another job well done. " - Reflections of a book Addict "This is a fast moving, don't want to put down read. " - So Little Time "This one may be my favorite out of all the Abigail Reynolds' books I have read. I loved the concept. As much as I enjoy watching Lizzy get jealous as Darcy tries to marry someone else, it was somehow refreshing to read the reverse." - Books Like Breathing "For those that love Darcy and enjoy reading the P&P variations, AND don't mind a few steamy sex scenes....this is a good read!" - Life in the Thumb "Mr. Darcy's Undoing by Abigail Reynolds is infused with bawdy conversation, conflict, societal disapprobation, and classic characters with modern sensibilities...Reynolds is masterful in her homage to Austen and her wit, while catering to readers' desire for romance and strong protagonists. Likely to be one of the first Austen spinoffs to make the end of year "Best of" list." - Savvy Verse & Wit "Mr. Darcy's Undoing is another of Abigail Reynolds's trademark emotional, accurate takes on the Regency world of Pride and Prejudice." - Linda Banche and Her Historical Hilarity "In Mr. Darcy's Undoing, Reynolds gives readers what they have come to expect from her Pride and Prejudice variations - different twists and turns as Elizabeth and Darcy navigate the same misunderstandings and plenty of heat as they skirt the bounds of propriety and often cross the line as they find they cannot keep their hands off each other." - Diary of an Eccentric "Mr. Darcy's Undoing is a great romance which finally pits Mr. Darcy against a realistic rival for Elizabeth's affections." - Laura's Reviews "What we have in this story is the tale of a man pursuing that which he wants, a few passionate encounters, and that which we all love, Mr. Darcy and Lizzie being totally and madly in love with each other." - Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell "In her latest Pride and Prejudice variation, Mr. Darcy's Undoing, Abigail Reynolds offers a fanciful story, replete with anguish and raw emotion, exploring another possible road not taken by Jane Austen herself...an inventive, fiery, Regency romance." - Austen Prose "Abigail Reynolds, one of my favorite Austenesque authors, is a skilled-story teller, an ardent admirer of Jane Austen, and quite proficient at infusing a lot of emotion, tension, and passion into her stories!" - Austenesque Reviews
