"I am amazed by Berdoll's ability to flesh out complex and interesting characters and plot lines. There isn't a single boring passage in the book, even when the characters are only talking about mundane matters. Berdoll has an amazing grasp on understanding human nature and how to make the characters seem larger than life with their thoughts and motivations." - Blogcritics.org
From the Publisher
Berdoll's first Novel, Mr Darcy Takes A Wife, was a finalist
for the Ben Franklin and Foreward awards and has sold more than 145,000
copies to date.

The book was aimless, lacking any real punch or storyline, no real passion (definitely unlike the first) and kept referring to the first book as if Linda Berdoll felt the need to remind us what it was all about.
Linda Berdoll should have gone out on a high..the first was brilliant but sadly this book is rubbish! Ah well..!
all in all, while the plot develops well in places and brings in some twists and turns nothing sits right and the reader is left with a feeling that something is missing..something big is missing.
The americanisms in language seemed more grating and the additional characters became more caricatures than the subtly drawn ironic portrayals we have become used to.
I do not wish to ruin the plot climax for those of you who have not read it but I found it implausable.
A good book, but not a patch on the original, or the first sequel for that matter.
The story follows the relationship of Elizabeth and Darcy from six months into their marriage for about a year. Whilst I found the emphasis on Elizabeth/Darcy's viewpoints a little restrictive, it should be noted that the title promised nothing else!
The language was well-worked, mainly true to that which characterised the period (although there were several jarring modern phrases such as one character calling another 'out of order' and Mrs Bennett using the word 'Posh' which did not come in until the later part of the nineteenth century).
Unfortunately description, which often creates a more involving, evocative atmosphere was scarce and sparse, with speech forming the major part of the book.
Another critiscism was the authors tendency to take a phrase from Austen's text and keep repeating it (if the phrase, 'Once Mr Darcy's favour is lost, it is lost forever', had been offered once more, I might well have had an attack of the vapours!). I felt that this device was relied upon rather too much, perhaps to see if some of the genius of Austen might distill itself in her own work!
Finally I did feel that many opportunities to round out the story were lost. The plot flitted from incident to incident and character development lost out as a result. I was particularly aggrieved when I was informed that Kitty's society had improved tremendously - she had gone from silly, ill-mannered girl to ravishing society beauty in a mere sentence with no story dedicated to this occurrence.Read more ›
I have now owned the book for 2 weeks and i'm still struggling to finish it. My curiosity alone is all thats keeping me from stuffing it on the book shelf and forgetting about it.
The other characters are brought into the story successfully and Wickham is his usual'caddish'self.
If you loved the first book then you'll enjoy this one !

Not prepared to pay nearly £10.00 for such tedious stuff. I quite agree with the reviewer who opined that it arose from the writer's erotic fantasy of Colin Firth. Read morePublished 8 months ago by LassofFyvie

It was really romantic and it is a very good book. The book was very sad, as well, but the romance and passion made up for that. Read morePublished on 30 Aug. 2013 by rachel head
