The Darcy’s of Pemberley

I was very lucky to win a copy of The Darcy’s of Pemberley at Austenesque Reviews a couple of years ago. It was the first giveaway I ever won and it put me in contact with the sweet Meredith 🙂

As my TBR pile seems to have a willing of its own, I have only read it last year and found great pleasure in it.

This book shows us how Darcy and Elizabeth’s life could have been after they were married, but if you think everything will be a sea of roses, you are mistaken. Their families are still there, part of their life to make sure Darcy and Elizabeth never have a dull moment.

Lydia and Wickham are childish and annoying as always, Mrs. Bennet’s nerves continue to be her best friends and Lady Catherine is still trying to get everything done her way, so our dear couple will have their hands full 🙂

The book was very enjoyable but the last chapters were my favourite as we see how devoted Darcy is to Elizabeth, and how his love is strong enough to withstand the most hurtful possibilities (I’m trying not to spoil this for you by being incredibly evasive, but if you read it, you’ll understand). I was truly amazed and touched at how much Darcy would accept because of his love for Elizabeth, and that was clearly my favourite part of the book 🙂

Georgiana’s journey is also quite interesting and I was glad to see how everything turned out for her. Readers who love her character, and I know there are several out there, will love this story!

I thought the book was a little too slow-paced in the beginning, but it is a very enjoyable read for those looking for a sequel to Pride & Prejudice, I recommend it to readers who want to follow-up the lives of our most beloved characters.

You can find this book on:

    I read this last year… last January in fact. I had to look at my review to remember what I had written about Winslow’s story. This was book 1 of 3 and it set the stage for the other stories. Thanks for sharing Rita and we all love Meredith too.

    I read and enjoyed this book and the others connected to this several years ago…before I did reviews. I’m looking forward to Shannon’s newest book regarding Lady Catherine and Anne! Hopefully coming out this year!

    I haven’t read this yet. It’s on my wish list along with the other two in the series as I like to read them together. However I am trying to read some off my TBR list before buying more but I will get round to them eventually. Thanks for your thoughts Rita 😘

    • I will try to do the same this year Glynis. I’ve bought too many books that just sit on my kindle for ages without being read, so I’m determined to read those before starting to buy new ones. I will also make an effort to read all the paperbacks I still have on my shelves, and I think this year I will only buy the ones I really, really want to read from authors I already love.

  5. Good for you working through your older books on the pile. I have to do this as well. And look! You found a real gem in this sequel. I’m glad to see you loved it since, sadly, I have this one on my dusty shelves to read, too. 🙂

    • One of my 2018 resolutions is to read the books I already own both in ebook or paperback format before venturing into new ones Sophia.
      I’ve realised I have bought too many books over the years that I have never touched, so those will have to be my priority this year!
      I hope you will be able to conquer your TBR pile this year 🙂
