Falling for Mr. Darcy By KaraLynne Mackrory


Loved it! This is one to put in my top favorites! I love Pride and Prejudice variations and Falling for Mr. Darcy did not let me down! 
Recognizing his feelings for Elizabeth, Darcy counts the days until he can leave Hertfordshire. Taking a morning ride, he comes across Elizabeth sitting on a log in a grove of trees. Suddenly a strong gust of wind causes a tree to fall over, nearly hitting Elizabeth. Stumbling backward to avoid being hit by the tree, Elizabeth injures her ankle. Unable to get home alone, Darcy helps her. This is when her feelings for Darcy start to change and she starts ...falling for Mr. Darcy.
Darcy feels he has to marry within his circle, and hopes leaving the area will also remove Elizabeth from his heart. But when he finds her talking with his sister in a shop in London, he is lost to her forever.
This is a Mr. Bennet that I like! He is not the neglectful father that everyone thinks he is.  He has taken care of his daughters future more than anybody knows. He is also very perceptive and sees that Liz and Darcy have feelings for each other early on.  The conversation between Darcy and Mr. Bennet about Lizzy at age eleven is adorable!! 

I loved the Colonel in this! He quickly figures out Darcy’s in love and cleverly gets Darcy to tell him all! He is also very helpful in coming up with a plan to give Wickham what he deserves!  Which, by the way, was handled beautifully! 
I want to tell you some of my favorite parts but I won’t because of spoilers. Let me just say, I loved it and would highly recommend it!
I give this 5 out of 5 stars.
I bought my own ebook copy of this book.

About the Author:
KaraLynne is an amazing mother who never makes mistakes, never gets upset with her children and never ever has a dirty house. Ever. She always has her dishes done and the floors spotless and dinner is always prepared and ready on time. Her kids are always clean, polite, respectful and loving, especially to each other. She never gets irritated with her husband when he doesn’t turn his socks right side out for the laundry and they always agree on everything. She delights in nothing else but to serve her family and never wants or needs time for herself. She takes great care to shower every day and put make up on so that she is always beautiful and presentable. She never wears her pajamas all day or for days in a row and she is the epitome of womanhood. Most of all, she has a great sense of humor and loves to write.

Falling for Mr. Darcy, released May 2012, is KaraLynne’s first venture in to the world of book authorship.  Although, admittedly a Darcy addict, she enjoys many things, such as: Mr. Knightly, Edmund Bertram, Captain Wentworth, Mr. Tilney and John Thornton.  She is happily married to her own Mr. Darcy and together they share the insanity inducing responsibility of raising three children.

  5. Lol Candy, I messed up my other comment! (Sent you a DM on Twitter). Sorry for the confusion.

    What I had MEANT to say was that I loved Falling for Mr Darcy, too, for all the reasons you mentioned. Richard, Mr B, the way Wickham was handled, and Lizzy and Darcy's reunion in town - all great. I laughed a lot thru it, too.

  7. Candy, was this story originally posted under another name as a fanfic? I remember the plot, but not the book title. If I wrote a rec for this, as I think I may have, I want to update the post with the new name and amazon link. :) Thanks!

    1. Gio- I haven't posted it before anywhere. Someone else once aske me that and so I'd be interested to know that book online if you know it. I do have a few short stories posted on meryton.com. Thanks for reading. :)

    2. Gioiarecs, I'm so glad KaraLynne answered that question because I had no idea! :) Thank you so much for stopping by!

      KaraLynne, Thank you for answering Gioiarecs's question!

    3. Thank you both very much! I now remember more about the fic in question, though not its name. In it, Elizabeth injures her tailbone prior to the Netherfield ball, due to a fall from a tree. That is where the similarity ends, though.

      I'm looking forward to reading "Falling for Mr. Darcy" and have added it to my Amazon wish list, with hints dropped for my hubby. :) Thanks again!

    4. I've got the name of that other fanfic now, thanks to Marliz over at DarcyAndLizzy.com. It's "The Prodigious Power of One Good Kiss" by Kathy Taylor, and it is posted over at AHA. Thanks again!

      KaraLynne, I neglected to ask you - do you post under a different name at maryton.com? I looked for your name on the JAFF Index, in search of any other stories you might've written, and I couldn't find you. I'd love to read those short stories, too. :)

    8. Thanks, KaraLynne! I'll have to check out those stories too!

      Gioia, Yes! I'm thrilled about the amount of books being published now! It's wonderful! :)
