IN THE ARMS OF MR. DARCY is the latest installment in Sharon Lathan's joyous celebration of married love, Regency style. A year has passed since Darcy's and Elizabeth's wedding. The story opens with a Christmas party at Pemberley where they introduce their brand-new son, Alexander. Compared to their tumultuous courtship, Darcy's and Elizabeth's lives are now mainly happy, with, of course, a little sturm und drang along the way. Darcy must deal with the business and emotional fallout of a death that occurred when a cotton mill he owns burns down. A nervous Elizabeth and Georgiana suffer through the gyrations required for their presentation at court. The Darcys enjoy a trip to the Peaks District, except when a falling boulder threatens Elizabeth and Alexander. Darcy, true hero that he is, whisks them to safety. Although Elizabeth and Darcy revel in domestic bliss, other members of their family are not so lucky. Elizabeth's sister, Kitty, enjoys and suffers through her first fluttering of love. And Col. Fitzwilliam's tentative romance with a lady who caught his eye years ago resurfaces. I love Col. Fitzwilliam's story. I've added him right next to Mr. Darcy on my Favorite Heroes list. If most of these events sound ordinary, it's because they are. Ms. Lathan's genius is to spin the everyday occurrences of married life into a page-turner. In a world full of strife, this book full of happiness is a treat for all. ARC provided by Sourcebooks

Though I usually like these "continuation novels" for Pride and Prejudice, I found this one disappointing. The end was unsatisfying and I felt that the characters, (Darcy in particular) changed too much from the original book. There were a few story lines that I liked, but they did not develop to completion. I felt that I was left hanging. There were things that I liked about the book, but by the end I was bored with the long, drawn out descriptions of what went on in the bedroom. Overall, I would not recommend this book to a true Pride and Prejudice fan...

    Boring

    This was tediously boring. I finally had to skim through many pages of details to see if there was any point. I won't bother with any other books in this Darcy Saga.
