Pride and Prejudice transplanted and updated to 21st Century Cincinnati.

Elizabeth become Liz, a writer on a glossy magazine and living in New York. Darcy is a heart surgeon. Mr and Mrs Bennet are both awful. Lydia and Kitty gain redemptive qualities. Mary remains the oddball, Jane the yogic angel, and Chip Bingley brings in the reality TV show and plotline that gives the novel its name.

Sparky dialogue, very short chapters, easy reading.
