Superb plot line, lovely phrasing and great descriptions. This is #5 of the “Darcy Saga” novels, but I don’t believe that it is necessary to have read the previous books to follow the plot and enjoy the story. But I highly recommend it! Married life is agreeing with Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth (Bennet) Darcy. Now parents of two children, their love is still strong and life is full of adventure. Surrounded by family and friends, they are back at Netherfield to celebrate Kitty Bennet’s wedding. The Bennet sisters and their families are together again: Jane & Bingley, Elizabeth & Darcy, Mary & Daniels, and Lydia & Wickham. I really, REALLY enjoy Ms. Lathan’s work and highly recommend her!


Was very enjoyable to read. The description of the places, and clothing, and the people is will done. I will buy many more of the books she writes.


As always Above and Beyond!  Like many of the reviews that have been written, I also am an avid fan of Ms. Lathan’s work. I have purchased and enjoyed every book that she has created. With The Trouble with Mr. Darcy, there is something that is very different but also very enjoyable to read. What we learn is that this is more than just a fairytale, but two perfect souls who walk a path with some bumps in the road. It is amazing to watch a couple go from besotted young newlyweds to a couple who’s love matures into a deeper bond of love. Darcy and Lizzy are by far the epitome of perfection, whether its their marriage or dealing with family issues. But what makes Ms. Lathan’s books so amazing is that it shows a realistic human side. It demonstrates that we all have ups and downs. As sad as it was for me to read about Lizzy’s mental illness and the premature birth of Michael, it reminds us all that these things do happen and shows a couple who struggle to find each other.

Having had the opportunity to go to France as an exchange student in high school, it was a great reminder of the many great places that I had visited in France. Having a major appreciation of Art, and both British and French history it shows that Ms. Lathan does her homework and goes into great detail of people, places and culture

As always having Dr. Darcy in the book always brings a smile to my face. Only a close 2nd to Darcy and Lizzy, he is definitely a special character. He definitely is a well-rounded man who is an uncle/father, doctor/healer and a true friend to everyone close to the Darcys. I’m curious to see what happens with him, Col. Fitzwilliam, and Georgiana.

In closing, I cannot get enough of the Darcys, not only do I want a Mr. Darcy (with Matthew Macfayden’s looks) but also the books open your eyes and make you want what they have. I look forward to more and more that Ms. Lathan creates and keeps up the top notch work. It is a book of love, life and happiness.


Sharon Lathan’s take on Happily Ever After at Pemberley has spoiled me for other sequels! Sharon gives Darcy humanity, and Elizabeth humility. I’ve fallen in love with each and ever character!

If you’re a fan of the novel by Ms. Austen you MUST read these. Sharon, Long may your pen write and your laptop type! Those who write that Ms. Lathan’s books are vapid and smut haven’t ever been in a lifelong love. The feelings she poor into the characters is SO relatable. I’ve found myself nodding my head, agreeing with a character (Love the character Amelia); I’ve felt those feelings… still FEEL those feelings. Thank you Ms. Sharon for giving life to the Darcy family!


Loved it! I have the entire series and they are all great romantic reads, this book in particular had a lot more suspense!!


Another excellent addition to one of my favorite series!  Love this book!!!! I honestly think this is the best of the series thus far! Lizzy and Darcy travel abroad, welcome their 2nd child, and celebrate Kitty’s wedding. But not all is roses for our favorite couple. Old enemies re-emerge, bent on revenge. Can the Darcys’ love survive?


A good read!  I have enjoyed all five of Sharon Lathan’s books. I love the additional characters she has created and have enjoyed her story lines! The creation of these new cast of characters, and her sideline expansions of them, have been so enjoyable – not to mention a wonderful break from bedroom scenes. I do hope that Lizzy will quit almost dying, though. I hope if there are more books that we continue to learn more about the lives of the new characters and their continued interaction with the Darcys. I’d like to learn more of the Bingleys and about the relationship between the Darcy and Bingley children. I found myself needing to read on to see what happens and was glad five books were out so that I could keep reading. The books are an enjoyable read and I applaud Ms. Lathan’s imagination in creating these stories.


Awesome book This was an amazing book. Sharon did another wonderful job on this book. I could not put this book down. You may want to read the other books that she wrote before this one but this is an amazing book.


I couldn’t put it down!  I have loved everyone one of Sharon Lathan’s books, but not since her first novel, Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy, have I been unable to put the book down! It had everything you need for a good romance AND suspense novel! There was love, torment, suspense, happiness and the list goes on. I love how she has developed characters we have loved since Jane Austen’s beloved story to new characters Sharon has created herself. I just loved the whole story line and can’t wait for her next to be published!


Excellent book!  I have read all of Sharon Lathan’s books in the Darcy saga and have thoroughly enjoyed them all, reading each one in less than a week. Her books are a wonderful continuation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. This book has romance and adventure and suspense, and it delves deeper into characters we have come to love through her earlier novels in The Darcy Saga. I find myself wanting her to keep going and elaborate on these characters even further, perhaps devoting a book to Kitty Bennett, Georgiana Darcy, George Darcy, Colonel Richard Fitzwilliam, or The Darcy House housekeeper Mrs. Smyth. I am so looking forward to the next installment in the Darcy Saga. In the meantime I may go back and re-read the first five books for a second time. If you love Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy, you will love this book. It will not disappoint.


What are the troubles with Mr. Darcy? Many!!  I have read Sharon Lathan’s entire Darcy Saga series, and while I have immensely enjoyed them all, this is her most brilliant work yet. It is good to see characters we have all grown to love become humanized by tension, whether driven by internal forces (such as the case with Lizzy) or by external forces in which Darcy must face and confront once and for all.

My personal favorite character/plot/resolution in this book was Mrs. Smyth. A minor character from Sharon Lathan’s previous work, Mrs. Smyth resurfaces again to be among those who share in the central plot to this story. This book is a very plot driven book with a climatic resolution that will leave you on the edge of your seats. For those not familiar with Sharon Lathan’s work, I am labeling this a MUST read. I strongly suspect new readers reading this will soon become fans.


Best of All the Books!!!  Sharon books are some of my favorite!!! I alway get excited when a new one is about to come out!!!! This one by far is the BEST!!!! I could not put it down when I started it!!!!!cant wait for more!


Great story!  I love this author. She has created the characters just like you have imagined them all these years – only better! The entire series is well worth the read! The only complaint I had was I couldn’t put them down, and when I did, the story was always my top thought.


This book is a must read!!!! This book is amazing; I was so excited that I was able to purchase it early! I was trying to wait until I had more time to devote to reading it, but I never had a chance. I was up until 3am reading it, and it was well worth it. Sharon Lathan is an amazing author, and her talent seems to come so easy! Thanks Sharon!


Excellence Shines! Sharon Lathan out-did herself yet again! Excellent continuation of her Darcy Saga. I am an avid fan of her and of the entire Darcy family! Sharon is true to all of her characters. I enjoy the friendship between Darcy and Col. Fitzwilliam, you can feel a if you are in the same room with them while they exchange wits. Dr. Darcy is my favorite character Sharon created; I was so happy that she continued him in her novels. He is a great father-figure who gives Darcy great advise and guidance. I can’t wait for Sharon’s next book. With these 5 books, you can tell she still has great ideas that need to be shared. She can’t write fast enough for me!


Darcy and Elizabeth Continues   This is another beautifully crafted book by Sharon Lathan. Her facts about pregnancy and childbirth are so very real you feel as if you’re there. When I read her books I can see through her words the scenes. This book is well work a read. I loved it.  I look forward to reading her books when they are published. I smile, laugh, and shiver with terror when I read her books. The stories are wonderful. I don’t believe all the lovemaking but that’s one of my smile times. Take a look at this book and enjoy.


Brilliant story!  Sharon Lathan is a much loved author and my personal favourite! From the very first novel “Mr & Mrs Fitzwilliam Darcy” Sharon has brought Lizzy & Darcy to life! There is plenty of romance to keep those of us who love a happy ending extremely content! However the story has much more. There is history, drama, and humour brilliantly interspersed throughout! I have loved all of the volumes and this one is no exception. Sharon brings back the dastardly Wickham! Darcy shows his heroic side and saves the day!

Sharon has wonderfully developed many of the well known characters, my favourites are Col Fitzwilliam and Georgiana. Their lives are given a new depth. The whole storyline comes together brilliantly and I enjoy reading about their lives as much as I do reading about Lizzy & Darcy! Dr Darcy is a new character that shines all the way through, he is a gem in this story, that adds even more charm to the Darcy’s family.

A wonderful read! I hope the story continues on forever!


What a rush!!  I’m a slow reader… but I read this book in one day! I just could not put it down. I have been reading Sharon Lathan’s work since it’s days as ‘mere fan fiction’ posted in chapters on her web page, and shared her joy as a fan when she announced she would no longer be posting chapters on her web page because she was going to be published.

It’s a wonderful end to her “Mr & Mrs Darcy saga” Her usual style of love and romance with suspense. I really loved her whole saga and am a bit sad to see it go. She stays very consistent in her version. I highly recommend this book and the others in the series.


BREATHLESS WITH ANTICIPATION!!!  MS. LATHAN’S BOOKS ARE MARVELOUS! The best and most realistic extension of the Austen Sagas. I devour each one and lick my lips for the next. A REAL ROMANCE WRITER! Worth the time and money.


Could not put it down!  I read The Trouble with Mr. Darcy in two days, could not put it down. Yes that good! Sharon Lathan has written a series of books on the subject of Darcy and Lizzy that Jane Austen herself would be proud of! Love, marriage, sex, intrigue, respect and family are fabulous words to use when describing the saga of Darcy and Lizzy. Sharon knows exactly how to incorporate all those things into one book. If you have not started her series, its a must! You will be very glad you did!


Did not wanted to put it down!!  Sharon Lathan books about the Darcys are very touching. You will fall in love with the characters and dislike the ones that just want to hurt them. It is wonderful to see that little Alexander is growing to be smart like his daddy. I did not wanted the book to end. I will re-read all of Sharon Lathan’s novels over again… yesss… she is that good!!!


This book was delightful!   Because my favorite author of all time is Jane Austen (I even gave my daughter the middle name Austen in her honor!) I love reading sequels, prequels, and remakes of her works.  It is written beautifully. I loved to see how the Darcy family grew and evolved over time. It is always interesting to see how an author will take the original text and allow it to grow! This was the first book I have read by Ms. Lathan, but I will be sure to read the novels that precede this one. I fun and entertaining read!


I cant get enough!!!! I love it!!! I am sad that I am out of books in The Saga!!!! I Love Fitzwilliam Darcy!!!! Passionate and intriguing, along with a mysterious chase with Wickham!!!


It was detailed, intense, and I loved the humour.   I’ll say it again — I love this series. Ms. Lathan never disappoints. Lots and lots of action in this offering. Consistently a good read. Thoroughly enjoyed this tale.


I enjoyed the book.  I was delighted to receive a free copy of The Trouble With Mr. Darcy by Sharon Lathan via Good Reads. I have not read her previous books but I was so taken with her writing style that I know I will read more of her books in the future. Her storyline proceeded at a steady pace so that I wanted to keep reading. The highly intimate scenes between Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam were done in good taste, however, there could have been fewer of their seductive activities. I was surprised to learn about postpartum depression in earlier times. I appreciated the notes at the end of the book. I was mesmerized by little Alexander. Lathan gave his character life. Such a dear child. The underlying suspicions of evil waiting to destroy Darcy was brought to fruition in a believable manner.


ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!!!   I thought it was a FANTASTIC Pride & Prejudice Sequel! I would recommend this book to any Pride & Prejudice fan from anywhere, it was THAT good!!!
