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.

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!
