A THRILLING NOVEL OF MALICIOUS VILLAINS, DRAMATIC REVELATIONS, AND HEROIC GESTURES THAT STAYS TRUE TO AUSTEN’S STYLE

SHACKLED IN THE DUNGEON of a macabre castle with no recollection of her past, a young woman finds herself falling in love with her captor—the estate’s master. Trusting him before she regains her memory and unravels the castle’s wicked truths would be a catastrophe.
Far away at Pemberley, the Darcys happily gather to celebrate the marriage of Kitty Bennet. But a dark cloud sweeps through the festivities: Georgiana has disappeared without a trace. Upon receiving word of his sister’s likely demise, Darcy and his wife, Elizabeth, set off across the English countryside, seeking answers in the unfamiliar and menacing Scottish moors.
How can Darcy keep his sister safe from the most sinister threat she has ever faced when he doesn’t even know if she’s alive? True to Austen’s style and rife with malicious villains, dramatic revelations and heroic gestures, this suspense-packed mystery places Darcy and Elizabeth in the most harrowing situation they have ever faced— finding Georgiana before it’s too late.

Just when you think this will follow the pride and prejudice genre to the letter, Ms. Jeffers puts twists and turns with a dark side. By the end, it is obvious that things are not always what they seem. The imagery is so vivid it seems the reader is in the sitting room at Pemberley. Definitely a book of surprises and excellent reading.

Reviewed by Desere Book provided by the publisher for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book I totally loved this book, a Regency with touch of mystery. The characters were wonderfully enhanced by this author and she added real depth to each and every scene. The book is part of a series, but without a doubt, can be read as a stand alone. The author so uniquely took me away on a magical read and at no point did it feel I was missing information. The author has a certain edge to her writing that would convert any non-reader of Regency period books in a heartbeat. The scenes were beautifully laid out and stunningly written into one of the most gorgeous books I have come across in a long time. It was a unique mystery with all of my favorite Pride and Prejudice characters. Yes, it is over 400 pages long. but so very worth every word.  I recommend this read to all Regina Jeffers fans and even the ones that aren’t yet ..you’re missing out!

The story is very slow moving and confusing. It moves from place to place and the two points with Georgiana are not always as distinct as they should be. Also, there is way, way too much religion in this book. If I wanted to read that much about the author's relgious beliefs mixed in, I would have picked up a book from a religious publisher. I don't mind when people mention this sort of thing in passing, but to constantly pray, go to church, etc, gets to be quite tedious. Get to the story or characters instead.

Good Story I enjoyed the story but I will have to say that it is not as good as her previous books based on Pride and Prejudice characters and I have every single one. As I read the story it reflected back to some of their previous interactions that occurred in Pride and Prejudice on several occasions. I was surprised by the going on in Scotland, it was hard to image. Sorry, I prefer a different spin to this one.

This is a wonderful read and my only complaint would be my family not leaving me alone long enough to enjoy it. This story is told from different character’s points of view and it's like being engrossed in a well written soap. You get completely sucked in as the characters converge. If you are a Jane Austen purist then please go away as it is written in Jane Austen's style but it's not so focused on the language as to loose the story. I honestly believe Jane would love her characters in this one. By all means buy this one and bring it to the beach or the park but make sure to have a long lasting sun block. I'm still a little burnt.

The Disappearance of Geogiana Darcy is a page turner I would highly recommend. The comparison between English and Scottish society, enhanced by the description of their respective countryside is enlightening. Revisiting the well known Austen characters is always a pleasure, but finally seeing them coming to realisations of some life truths is fun and makes them more three dimensional and interesting. Even Mr Wickham, has some sould searching, even if it's just scratching the surface... This mystery is intreaguing and beguiling. The twist and turns kept me interested and guessing what next? The new characters are interesting and would definitely be good additions in future stories. The ending is surprising and poignant. Ms Jeffers never disappoints. Cannot wait for the next story. Brilliant book!!!

Awesomeness! I love that The Disappearance of Georgiana Darcy is a sequel to Christmas at Pemberley, a fact I did not know before I started reading it, not to mention what a great story it is! Upset over hearing some bad news, Georgiana charges off on her horse towards the Scottish moors. Thrown from her horse, she wakes up in a strange room with no recollection of how she got there. When Darcy and Elizabeth find out she is missing, they go to Scotland to try to locate her. Colonel Fitzwilliam, now a Major General, also races up to find her. Not only do we have the mystery of Georgiana's disappearance, but there is so much more going on. The family is gathering at Pemberley for Kitty's wedding, the Wickhams show up creating a bit of family drama. Wickham is still blaming Darcy for all his misfortunes, and indeed his misfortunes are great and keep growing. I found it very interesting to see Lydia realizing that her sisters have made much better marriages than she did. Mrs. Bennet has her eyes opened to that fact also! Jeffers did an excellent job leading me through this mystery and having all these side plots going on at the same time, without overwhelming me. I have to admit that I was surprised and didn't figure out the mystery until it was revealed to me. Well done! If you love the Darcys and a mystery, this is definitely the story for you! Even though it is a sequel, I think it could be read alone. There is much reflecting back to both Pride and Prejudice and Christmas at Pemberley. By the way, I love the cover!
