During this past week Miss Darcy Falls in Love has received several more awesome 4-5 Star reviews. All of the reviews my novel has received so far are on THIS PAGE but here are a few snippets to share–
Miss Darcy Falls in Love fits into that delectable category of books that make me stay up late reading, wanting to take in “just one more” chapter before heading to bed much too late in the evening (or wee hours of the morning)…. Georgiana has always been a favorite character, and I loved how Sharon handled her journey. She mingled Miss Darcy’s love of music, her character traits as a Darcy and her desire for matrimony perfectly… I loved how Sharon handled her journey.

Georgiana was great in this one. She was so well developed. She had some of this same characteristics that I loved in Pride and Prejudice –her sweetness and shyness –but she was also much spunkier and much more independent…. Sebastian is the perfect hero for Georgiana. He is musically inclined and charming. –Books Like Breathing
For those of you who love Austen novels then you have to read this. Lathan takes the minor characters of Austen’s and breathes life and magic back into them… if you’re looking for a beautiful backdrop in history along with the romance we all dream about, then you’ll fall in love with Miss Darcy Falls in Love. –Pen and Muse
And here is a lovely surprise review for A Darcy Christmas, which is perfect to segue into a reminder of my fabulous novella anthology from last holiday season. To read more about A Darcy Christmas visit the page devoted to it HERE. This review is from Christy Farmer and she gives all three of the novellas – mine, Amanda Grange, and Carolyn Eberhart – 5-Stars. This is the portion for “A Darcy Christmas”—
Of the stories in the anthology perhaps the one I enjoyed the most is A Darcy Christmas by Sharon Lathan. This story is a series of vignettes (a collection of short stories) spanning the course of approximately twenty-five years of life with the Darcys. The story opens with Mr. Darcy receiving a family portrait on Christmas Day. Seeing his beloved family on the portico of Pemberley makes him feel nostalgic. In the vignettes, the reader is given glimpses of life with the Darcy’s. As a newlywed couple celebrating their first Christmas, the birth of a child, telling Christmas stories with their children, and throughout the future. We see one child engaged, one child married, and unfortunately the death of a beloved member of the family. Sharon Lathan has the ability to tell a compelling story and these were the vignettes I did not wish to see end.
