Review: Miss Darcy Falls in Love – Sharon Lathan

Series: The Darcy Saga # 7
Genre: Pride and Prejudice variation
Pages: 304

Noble young ladies were expected to play an instrument, but societal restrictions would have chafed for Georgiana Darcy, an accomplished musician. Her tour of Europe draws the reader into the musical life of the day, and a riveting love story of a young woman learning to direct her destiny and understand her own heart.
My thoughts:
This book is part of a series, but it works wonderfully as a stand alone novel, as the other books have been mostly about Lizzy and Darcy, and in this one it is Georgiana who takes the stage. So this is fully her book as we do not even get to meet Lizzy and Darcy. Sure you can read all the ones before, but you can also enjoy it as it is.
I do love my PP stories, but I love the side characters just as much, and it was wonderful to see Georgiana fall in love, and with a man who fits her so well. She needs someone like her in certain aspects and I did like the man who at last wins her heart.
And that ism truly what this book is about, Georgiana is in Europe, meeting new friends, longing for home, and then meeting someone new, and not just one man. No, there is a choice to be made. But we all know which man she will pick. Or hope she will pick. They are both good in their own ways, but I do think Gerorgiana played a bit with the one man’s feeling (not knowingly), but afterwards I felt really sorry for him and hoped he would find love again.
Lathan is known for her sensual books, but this one is again different since it deals with Georgiana, and her being unwed, well we can’t have anything like that going on. There the book differs from the other books in this series. It is more romantic and longing.
It was a wonderfully sweet book and as always it was fun to meet everyone again, or at least hear about them since Lathan truly has worked on this series, and wanting to give everyone happy endings. And I do like hearing about them all.
A good book in this series, and an equally good book that can stand on its one. Lathan is a true romantic.
It fits the vibe really well

    I am still totally dying from writing the wrong name. Of course I know my Ggreek mythology, damn those Hs! I must go die nowNah, you cannot die. Firstly, after the death you will meet Hades for real and he is not a nice guy, secondly you must write your next erotica flash fiction. I won't let you die before you write that. Thirdly everybody makes mistakes. *hug*

    I can't believe how many books there are that spin a new twist on P&P! I think I should read the original before falling into any of these though. But I loved the movies. Does that count? ;P

    Nice review — I've been eyeballing this one because I've got a soft spot for Georgiana — I'm glad to see she gets her time in the limelight!

    I love reading about the side characters and finding out how things went for the. And the author does sounds familiar so I'm sure I read one of her P&P books before.
