Review of Miss Darcy Falls in Love

Miss Darcy Falls in Love
Sharon Latham
Sourcebooks Landmark
ISBN 9781402259043

   Miss Darcy is on a tour of Europe and happens upon a distant relative, Sebastian Butler. Georgiana not only enjoys his company; but they share a love of music that cannot be surpassed. Along comes Lord Craxton, a much older man, who has his sights set on the lovely Georgiana. She enjoys his company also; but when he wants to make a formal commitment, Miss Darcy drags her feet.
   Georgiana and Sebastian collaborate on some musical pieces. Both feel some attraction to the other but neither one wants to put a name to their relationship. How naive young people can be. Lord Craxton, on the other hand, has no problems with voicing his opinion, even if it means deceiving the other party. Will she and Mr. Butler ever decide to verbalize the way they truly feel about each other?
   This is the seventh book in the Darcy Saga. I have not read any of the others; but this book can easily stand alone. I am not a big fan of Jane Austen; but this was probably one of the better ones that I have read. I know this is a different era from today; but I have such difficulty with the formality of the times. The storyline in general was quite good. It was a bit slow at times; but it was able to maintain my interest. It was such a pleasure to see how Sebastian and Georgiana interest in music brought them together on so many levels. Lord Craxton was another story. There was just something so off putting about this man. I don't think he ever really listened to what Georgiana ever said. He heard what he wanted to hear. I am sure you Austen fans out there will truly love the story.
   I wish to thank Sourcebooks for providing me with an ARC to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. I was not compensated in anyway except for receiving the book to review.

I give Miss Darcy Falls in Love 4 out of 5 stars 


  1. I love P&P spin offs. I will check this one out for sure.


  2. To The Book Snoop, thanks for stopping by. It was a nice tame story compared to most I read.
