This review is from: The Second Mrs Darcy (Paperback)
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a husband. But recently widowed Octavia Darcy disagrees. She hasn't forgotten her impoverished girlhood. Now, when she unexpectedly finds herself an heiress, her ambition is to lead an independent life, not to marry again.

I was hoping for some witty conversations and some romance. Instead it was just a story about a year and a bit of Octavia's life. There were no witty dialogues. Nothing the least bit amusing. The romance (for want of a better word) was the last 2 pages of the book. I have no idea when the H and h fell in love. In like (maybe-ish) but love? Nah. I wanted to read a romantic story (sob). It would have been nice if there had been a lot more interaction between the H and h. I would have liked to have seen them enjoying each another's company and falling in love. To be honest, there really wasn't that much interaction between them until the very end really.

If you're looking for something along the lines of Georgette Heyer, Jane Austen or Joan Smith - this isn't it.
