    1. I won this book from a giveaway and was really excited because Jane Austen sequels/re-tellings are a special guilty pleasure of mine. The overall story was pretty good. I also liked the development of some of the other characters such as Colonel Fitzwilliam and Georgiana. My biggest issue with this book is the amount of sex going on. I mean, it was REALLY excessive. I'm pretty sure Darcy and Elizabeth get it on at least 3 times a day. There was even one sexytimes scene that went on for, like, 4 [...]

    2. Mr. and Mrs. Darcy are still besotted, that much is evident in this fifth in the series by Sharon Lathan. The couple has undergone other troubles in previous installments, but nothing they haven't been able to work through for the benefit of their relationship and growing family. In this installment, Elizabeth gives birth to a second child and all is not well. Oddly, this was one of my favorite twists to the Darcy saga, as there was something very real about the struggles Elizabeth goes through [...]

    3. Okay, so I saw this at the store, it had that Austen-esque cover, and I thought it might be worth a look. I knew it wouldn't be worthy of Austen, and didn't expect it to be, but I had no idea it was actually part of a series of tawdry romance novels that were capitalizing on Austen's already developed characters, without adhering to any of the other devices that make her such a great author. Instead of relying on wit and charm and intellect, every single chapter (and I'm not exaggerating) contai [...]

    4. The happily-ever-after at Pemberley takes a sharp left in The Trouble with Mr. Darcy, the fifth book in Sharon Lathan’s lush, romantic Darcy Saga. Darker and more complex than the preceding novels in the series, Lathan tackles deeper elements in Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy’s marriage. Gone are the days of the happy honeymoon period, as Elizabeth struggles to recover from her second pregnancy, creating tension in the Darcy household.Lathan’s latest work definitively shows her growth as [...]

    5. I know I commented in one of my early reviews of Sharon Lathan’s books in this series that something has to come along to make life real for Darcy and Lizzy, even while still newlyweds - they’re so in love, nothing can break through that bubble of happiness. But just as life is wont to do, it does eventually burst that bubble, and Ms. Lathan does a good job of handling this couples’ heartache and pain when necessary. But, my heavens, in this book, they get a heavy dose of when it rains tro [...]

    6. My favorite book is Pride and Prejudice so I'm always excited to read sequels and other versions of that book. I read a couple reviews saying the characters were true to the original so I was doubly excited. I won this book from and I am thankful to them for the chance to read it. I liked the cover a lot. I thought it was gorgeous. I also thought the language was good most of the time. What bothered me? Well I don't think the characters were true to the original. Lizzie isn't really witty so mu [...]

    7. What I liked: an interesting plot that kept me turning the pages to see how it would all turn out. stayed fairly true to Austen's voice in regards to the time period and setting. loved the introduction of new characters. Could lead to other books featuring Georgiana, whom I've really enjoyed getting to know in this book and would be interested to continue her story.What I wasn't that crazy about: Darcy was too perfect. Don't get me wrong I love my Darcy but the man has to have some flaws or else [...]

    8. The happiness of a birth and a wedding, the sorrow of illness, and the return of villains all mark THE TROUBLE WITH MR. DARCY, the emotional latest chapter in Sharon Lathan's DARCY SAGAE TROUBLE WITH MR. DARCY belongs to Elizabeth as some good and a lot of bad overtake her. The Darcys have a new son, Michael, but all is not well. Although physically cured, Elizabeth remains mentally sick from the birth, and the illness takes a toll on her and Darcy's marriage. On a happier note, Kitty weds her b [...]

    9. I received this book as an ARC. I have never read a sequel to any of Austen's work, and while interested in the story, I was concerned about how true to the original story it would remain. As a Jane Austen fan, I did not want to feel like I was reading a poor remake. I enjoyed this book very much. The writing style was very easy to follow. I read this book over a couple of days- something I would not be able to do with the original. The characters seemed true to the original- though they have ev [...]

    10. THE TROUBLE WITH MR DARCY by Sharon Lathan is an interesting historical romance set in 1819 England. "Pride and Prejudice continues" as this delightful story of Mr.Darcy,Elizabeth, and the wicked George Wickham comes to reak mayham,danger,upon Mr.Darcy and his family.This is the fifth in this author's A Darcy saga.See Mr. and Mrs.Fitzwilliam Darcy:Two Shall Become One,Loving Mr. Darcy: Journeys Beyond Pemberley,My Dearest Mr.Darcy:An Amazing Journey into Love Everlasting,In the Arms of Mr. Darcy [...]

    11. There is just something disturbing about Austen-fanfic sex.Seriously. The characters were *almost* in character, and although this is apparently the fifth book in a series I was keeping up okay, with Elizabeth's children and the weird time-skipping storyline that suddenly placed us back in her pregnancy so really it's hard to tell if this ended up being now-sex or past-sex but the point is, it sneaks up on you when you're really not expecting it. All you want is something close to Austen and som [...]

    12. I read all five novels of the Darcy Saga in pretty much one go over the space of a week and as a result I find it easier to critique as a whole set rather than individually so this review covers all the five novels although I will assign a rating to each book:1. Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy2. Loving Mr. Darcy3. My Dearest Mr. Darcy4. In the Arms of Mr. Darcy5. The Trouble with Mr. DarcyFirst of all, this book is for the hopeless romantics who want nothing more than to revel in detail in Lizz [...]

    13. I’m beginning to notice a pattern in sequels to Austen’s classic novel: Elizabeth experiences a tragedy during pregnancy, one of the Bennet sisters marries, Georgiana falls in love, Lydia arrives unannounced at a family function, Catherine de Bourgh will criticize Elizabeth, and Wickham hatches a plan to extract revenge upon Darcy that usually involves placing Elizabeth in mortal danger.And Lathan’s book nearly follows this pattern to a T with Elizabeth experiencing postpartum depression f [...]

    14. Alors, un tome un peu moins "gnangnan" que les précédents, sans doute parce qu'il se passe ENFIN quelque chose.Le début est plaisant sans doute parce que cette fois, Darcy & Lizzy sont en dispute et ne se parlent plus ( je vous rassure c'est temporaire, la dame fait une dépression post partum). Enfin c'est rafraichissant de les voir se disputer et surtout d'éviter les déclarations d'amour ^^. Idem, on passe un peu plus de temps sur les autres personnages. J'aime bien l'histoire d'amour [...]

    15. This is the final segment in the Darcy Saga series. It is by far the best of the series. The final segments of this book were wild, exciting, suspenseful, shocking, dramatic, treacherous and tearful. The rescue, as we watch the drama unfold, was tense and suspenseful. I was shocked by how the conflict between Darcy and Wickham played out. When the rescue team lead by Colonel Fitzwilliam approached the hideout and charged the assailants, it was like watching a movie on TV. Their military training [...]

    16. The Trouble with Mr. Darcyby Sharon LathanGenre: Romance/Jane Austen Fan Fictionsoft cover, 339 pagesRegency EnglandThis 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 [...]

    17. My 3.5 JEWEL review can be found at One Book Shy of a Full ShelfI enjoyed Jane Austen books as a younger reader and have recently been having a lot of fun reading some of these remakes and variations of her stories. Sharon Lathan has done an excellent job of taking some of Jane's beloved, as well as the despised characters and giving them slightly different adventures. While this book is the fifth installment in the series, it also makes a pleasant stand-alone read. You are given plenty of backg [...]

    18. Synopsis: In the fifth in Sharon Lathan's bestselling series, George Wickham returns to Hertfordshire bent on creating trouble, and Elizabeth and her newborn son are thrown into danger. Knowing that Wickham has nothing left to lose, Darcy and Fitzwilliam rush to the rescue in a race against time.This lushly romantic story takes a turn for the swashbuckling when Mr. Darcy has to confront the villainous Wickham and his own demons at the same time devoted as he is, what battles within will Mr. Darc [...]

    19. The romantic story line continues. I really enjoyed the drama in this book more than some of the others in this 5 part sequel. First you have the emotional issues that Elizabeth and Darcy have to deal with after they have their second child. Elizabeth becomes obsessed with the baby to an extreme degree and thus shuns herself away from Darcy. It takes Darcys uncle Dr Darcy to make them realize how stubborn they both of them are to reconcile. And thats just the start of the book! Then there is Kit [...]

    20. I've been looking forward to reading this book since the release of the previous book of the series. You can say that my expectations on The Trouble with Mr Darcy to be high.I'm not quite sure what to think of this bookI definitely found it different from the previous books of this series. Although I liked parts of it there were also others that could have been left outbut that's just my opinion.*****SPOILER ALERT*****I loved the way that the author dealt with postpartum depression. It's not onl [...]

    21. I usually love anything Austen, no matter how far they stray from her material or type of writing. There are two reasons that I don't like this one. First, the amount of explicit sex on every four or five pages was distracting. I agree with the author that books should show that married couples love each other but I don't agree that it should be that explicit because there are unmarried people out there that could be reading it so it should be less explicit. Also, every four to five pages is unr [...]

    22. The final book in the Darcy Saga is filled with more adventure and intrigue than the previous few books. Evil intentions haunt the happiness of Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth Darcy after Elizabeth suffers a difficult illness after the birth of their second child--an illness that nearly tears our happy couple apart. This is a more suspenseful and dramatic book in this saga than the rest, and it truly was a page-turner. People from the past align forces to harm the Darcy family while other members of t [...]

    23. Mrs. Sharon Lathan does it againThis is my all time favorite series of what happens after Pride and Prejudice. I enjoy this series so much I read it at minimum once every other year. No matter where you are in life it effects you differently and you always discover something you may not have noticed through your first time reading through. ***SPOILER*** I really appreciate that the author tackled the subject of postpartum and how it may have went undetected during these times and how still it go [...]

    24. 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 post [...]

    25. I would have to say that this is my favourite so far of Lathan's Darcy series. There was enough drama to keep me interested, despite my thoughts that the interrupted wedded bliss of Mr & Mrs Darcy was explained and wrapped up far too easily (within the first 100 pages). The story is very child-focused, so as a non-parent, there were elements that I found harder to related to, or care about.As usual, the true villains are bad-to-the-bone, and meet satisfying conclusions, and, as usual with La [...]

    26. This was another unique insight into what may have been the lives of the Darcys post Pride and Prejudice. Sharon Lathan draws you right in with her grand storytelling and lush descriptions. A fantastic journey back in time of gentlemen and ladies. I loved the dialog between Mr Darcy and Elizabeth and the natural progression of their relationship. I was surprised to enjoy the struggles Lizzy had after the birth of her son and enjoyed seeing them find their way through that. This was much more sen [...]

    27. Continuations of classics can be a great deal of fun to read, but I just couldn’t get into this continuation of ‘Pride and Prejudice.’ I love the premise, the summary, showing what Lathan intended to do, but it unfortunately fell a bit short. Honestly, there was just too much sex. And, don’t get me wrong, I love a well-written love scene(s) throughout any book, but there were too many for something based on a Jane Austen novel—and, they were pretty risqué (oh my!). More than that, it [...]

    28. I received an ARC of this novel! 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. This book was delightful! 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 [...]

    29. I just don't know what to say about this book. On the whole I found it so disappointing that I just couldn't read more than the first few chapters. I know that no one is going to speak with the voice of Austen, but after loving her characters so much in Pride & Prejudice, to hear Elizabeth fritter on about inconsequential crap and hear Darcy wax poetic about his children - it doesn't ring true to the characters or the time period and it makes this read more like a bodice ripper version of ev [...]
