    2.5 stars. It was okay. I love Jane Austen, and adore P & P

    2.5 stars. It was okay.

    I love Jane Austen, and adore P & P above all. How did I miss this series?

    When I got a copy of this book, I opened it with great anticipation. And then... meh. The language of this is much stronger and better than most Regency Romances, which are mostly costuming like little girls being dressed up for a tea party, and very little historical accuracy. And yet... it left me flat. I did not feel that Miss Darcy fell in love, or experienced any violent emotion, over the course of the novel. The barrier between her and her eventual fiance felt contrived and insufficient, and when in the end, it was quite easily overcome after all, I felt unsurprised.

    The only surprise was there was little to no mention of Mr. Wickham. Georgiana almost eloped with the man, after all, and he is now a member of her sister-in-law's family. This would surely make for unpleasant or uncomfortable reminders and even encounters from time to time, but it was as if that backstory never happened.

    Is it well written? Absolutely. Does it draw an excellent depiction of ongoing European events among this milieu of people? Yes. But I found that for myself, despite reading the book "determined to be pleased," as Miss Austen described earlier P & P characters, I simply wasn't emotionally involved with Ms. Latham's Miss Darcy or her suitors.

    This story was so sweet. Georgiana Darcy truly makes a marvelous

    This story was so sweet. Georgiana Darcy truly makes a marvelous heroine. Out of her brother's watchful shadow, she is just beginning to stretch her wings, and where better to accomplish that than in the City of Lights? She makes many delightful new friends, including the musical, handsome Sebastian Butler. And that is all it is at first: a warm, treasured friendship. Watching it develop into more was a pleasure.

    As in all of the best romances, there are things standing in their way. In the case of Miss Darcy Falls in Love, their main obstacles are themselves. They both make mistakes and there are foolish misunderstandings that make me shake my head at their mutual silliness. It was lovely. Poor Lord Caxton really didn't stand a chance.

    I really liked the depth of Sebastian Butler as a character. You can really get to know him, to understand and respect him. He's a little older, a little more experienced than Georgiana, reminding me of Mr. Knightley. Georgiana is sweetly naive, but that hardly slows her down. She's the sort of character who might get momentarily confused on her path, but when she makes up her mind she is a force to be reckoned with.

    This is a must for anyone who has read Sharon Lathan's Darcy Saga, but even if you haven't read any of her other books you should give this one a try.

    I received an advance copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    Loved this story!!! Georgiana deserves this type of love!

    This is a delightful tale of finding love and not ardor.

    Highly Recommended

    I enjoyed the story. But I have read every single book Sharon Lathan has written and I had no doubt I would not enjoy this one.

    Fantastic Read

    Was Pride and Prejudice your favorite Jane Austin book? It was mine, and the story Miss Darcy Falls in Love brings readers back to that world; this time, focusing on Mr. Darcy's sister, Georgiana. I admit, I was also drawn to this book because Georgiana is a musician, and so is the hero of the story, Sebastian, and music happens to be one of my things. It's also set in Paris, another intriguing quality.

    The writing is excellent. The author, Sharon Lathan has a gift for words. The style is clever, and musical symbolism is used at its finest. Musical motifs are blended into the brilliant threads of the story, enhancing the plot. A Regency world is well constructed.

    The characters are three-dimensional and quite interesting. Georgiana and Sebastian are great, charming and all-too-human. Their relationship builds so naturally, and the chemistry between them comes alive. Readers can feel their passion. The secondary characters add dashes of wit and sparkle to the book and aid in bringing Georgiana and Sebastian closer.

    Suspense is created effectively with the introduction of the impossibly seductive Baron who falls madly in love with Georgiana. He holds great appeal to her. He could very well draw her away from Sebastian. After all, he also shares a great thing in common with her: music, and he's very attractive. She's thunderstruck when she meets him.

    Other aspects of the plot add interest. Sebastian's father vehemently insists that Sebastian marries a woman with a title, which Georgiana does not have. Also, Sebastian is expected to come home to England and learn how to be a future earl. However, his heart dictates that he follow his passion for music. How can these things possibly be reconciled?

    At any rate, Georgiana experiences a steamy, passionate night with the man who turns out to be her true love.

    The love, passion, and excellence of style, as well as the writer's superior talent with words is sure to win her new fans or satisfy old fans with this one.

    Happy Ending for Georgiana!

    I too am a real fan of Ms. Lathan's work and this one does not dissapoint. Don't expect alot of Darcy and Lizzie in this one, it is truly focused on Georgiana and it's nice for her to have her voice heard. I would give it 4 1/2 if I could because it moved a little slowly at times, but it deserves a five for being a lush representation of the era. I was also thrilled to see a little bit of a spoiler in the end of the book for an upcoming one. =D Thanks Ms. Lathan for another fabulous book!

    Wonderfully written with vivid details!

    Review by Molly:
    I love Ms. Lathan's work! She really made a story pop and come to live with this unique twist on Jane Austen's work. For some reason, I never really like Miss Darcy's character in other works. She just seemed a bit off and too quiet for my likings. But, Sharon Lathan really created a story for Miss Darcy that really caught my heart.

    I loved how Ms. Lathan took a time in history and brought it to life with her characters and plot line. Miss Darcy's story is uniquely written. Watching Miss Darcy and her love of music was amazing. I felt myself instantly transported and walking along side of Miss Darcy.

    Seeing Miss Darcy realize that it doesn't matter what others think, or what they might expect of you, that it's okay to follow YOUR heart, and to fall in love with whom your heart calls you to love. It was a fun loving journey!

    If you are a Jane Austen fan, if you love historical novels, then Ms. Lathan's wonderfully written,vividly detailed, and sweet romance novel will be one that you don't want to miss out on! I'm looking forward to another sweet novel from Ms. Lathan!
