TYPE OF AUSTENESQUE NOVEL: Not exactly a modern-day P&P, this is more like a Darcy and Elizabeth inspired contemporary romance.
SETTING: Modern-day, Manhattan, New York
WHY I WANTED TO READ THIS BOOK:
- So many reasons – modern-day romance, Elizabeth Adams, forced/marriage of convenience scenario!
- Made me think of The Proposal – which I adored!
In her modern-day romance, Green Card (first edition published in 2014), Elizabeth Adams tells the story William Harper, who is desperate to remain in the US and not be deported back to England, and Elizabeth Barrett, the short-on-funds-full-time student, who agrees to play the part of Will’s wife for the next couple of years in exchange for some hefty financial benefits. In order to stay above suspicion for Immigration Services, Liz and Harper must look like the real deal. And because William Harper is an eligible and wealthy bachelor in the public eye they must act like the real deal too. This marriage of convenience is supposed to be fake, but what happens when in starts to feel real?
