This is part 3 of Sharon Lathan´s amazing Darcy Saga! It is again fabulous. Darcy and Lizzy travel to the seaside and are awaiting the birth of their first baby. You can share their excitement about their baby, feel their love and be a part of that special bond that surrounds them. And Mrs. Bennet sees Pemberley for the first time! After finishing this book, you will probably start with the first, "Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy" again!

I just kept wondering when the plot would begin to develop in this novel. It never did. The pages of this disappointing Pride and Prejudice sequel are filled with literally hundreds of trite and exceedingly syrupy endearments between Elizabeth and Darcy as they continually satisfy one another in their boudoir. The endlessly saccharine "I love you, dearest/my lover/my life..." exchanges become almost laughable.

I hoped that when Elizabeth delivered her first baby, things would take a turn for the better; alas, even the birth unfolds without any excitement or novelty. Other than that single occurrence, absolutely nothing else happens. Nothing! There is no tension, no plot development, no excitement in this novel. I wanted to enjoy it & kept reading in the hope that it would improve, but it did not. I cannot recommend it.

    My Dearest Mr. Darcy

    If you enjoy novels that extrapolate on the love story of Lizzie Bennett and Fitzwilliam Darcy and Sharon Lathan's books, My Dearest Mr. Darcy will surely entertain.

    I enjoyed this the most because in My Dearest Mr. Darcy, Lathan tells the story partly from Dr. George Darcy's point of view. Dr. George Darcy is Fitzwilliam's uncle who lived and worked in India for years and as he writes to Jharna, his love, about his impressions of England and his family during this first visit in decades, Dr. Darcy brings a lively and interesting perspective. I enjoyed reading Dr. Darcy's observations of how Fitzwilliam Darcy had changed and his view on the relationship between Lizzie and Darcy.

    I don't want to give anything away, but the other passages that I enjoyed involved (1) a snob who is finally put in her place and is made speechless and (2) the comeuppance of a lady who oversteps.

    If you want a quiet escape into the period and people of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, you may want to give My Dearest Mr. Darcy a try.
