Mrs Darcy's Diamonds - Jane Odiwe

Elizabeth is newly married to Fitzwilliam Darcy, her new role is daunting at first, and having to deal with Mr. Darcy’s aunt, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, is a daily challenge. But, Elizabeth is deeply in love and determined to rise to every test and trial she is forced to endure. When her husband presents her with a diamond ring, part of the precious and irreplaceable Darcy suite of jewels, she feels honoured and ready to accept her new responsibilities and position. 

Mrs. Darcy knows she will face exacting scrutiny at the approaching Christmas Ball, but it will be her chance to prove that she is a worthy mistress, and she is excited to be playing hostess to the Bennets, the Bingleys, and the gentry families of Derbyshire, as well as Mr. Darcy’s French cousins, Antoine de Valois and his sister Louise. Elizabeth is delighted that this young and lively couple are helping to bring Miss Georgiana Darcy out of her shell. However, when her ring goes missing before the ball, Elizabeth is distraught, and her dilemma further increased by the threat of a scandal that appears to involve the French cousins.

My thoughts:
Awww there is nothing like JA variations, sequels and all the rest. Am I obsessed? How dare you Sir!!...ok ok, I am totally obsessed and enjoy them all :D

In this one we meet Darcy and Lizzy after the wedding and they will have a big ball, for friends and family. But there will be drama!


  • A missing ring. Did she loose it? Did someone take it?
  • An annoyed and annoying Lady de Burgh (put Caroline in that category too).
  • Mrs Bennet being Mrs Bennet (we all know what that means, sigh!)
  • And mysterious relatives showing up. Who are they?

There is some drama, some romance, and your favorite characters showing up and being their annoying selves ;)

There is also a build up for a sequel that I look forward to. But I will not go into things, I will let you all be surprised. 

Conclusion:
Enjoyable.

I do love my variations and sequels

Heidi@Rainy Day Ramblings said...

I usually am not a fan of these type of books because I rarely think authors get the characters right. I am glad it worked for you. The cover is rather lame.

Maja (The Nocturnal Library) said...

I really don't read this type of historical fiction, or HF at all, unless it's also paranormal, alternate or fantasy or whatever, but this sounds like fun!

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

I enjoy these kind of reads as well. I will have to add this one to the wishlist!

I haven't read a sequel yet of the story but it's intriguing. I finished one like that a few days ago, it was nice.

BookaholicCat said...

I think you need help, maybe you need to go to a Jane Austen rehab or something... I'm kidding.
I'm glad you liked this book. :)

Anonymous said...

Everyone's reading JA retellings these days. This one sounds really funny, though, it almost makes we want to finish the original. :D

Karen said...

I still haven't read P&P!!! I do know the story from movies/series of course but still. This sounds really cute though.

I haven't read any sequels to classics, and used to not like the idea, but the wish to keep reading about beloved characters never goes away! This sounds like a fun book.

Blodeuedd said...

I am always a bit scary of these. I am always afraid they are going to disappoint. Must overcome fear.

Blodeuedd said...

I can understand that. But just give it a go

Anna said...
