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.

  2. 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.
