Reviews for The Perfect Bride for Mr. Darcy

I like to publish unedited reviews, warts and all, so that any potential readers will know what they are getting when they purchase one of my books. In no particular order, here are the links to bloggers who have reviewed The Perfect Bride for Mr. Darcy:


  1. Hi Mary. That is a lot of reviews. If you did a word count would all the reviews together make more words than the book they are reviewing?

    I wonder,could I give you a challenge?

    Which are your five favourite sentences or phrases describing your book?

    You don't have to really do it Mary. It was just a thought.

  2. Hi Tony, You gave me an intro, and I'm going to take it. Here are bits from 5 reviews. Thanks.

    “All of the characters were wonderfully drawn and I felt like I was in the room when events happened.” – Jenny Loves to Read

    “It had great witty dialogue that made me laugh out loud a few times. Unlike some other Mr. Darcy books that just paraphrase Pride and Prejudice, The Perfect Bride for Mr. Darcy is a fully realized tale of its own that was very intriguing.” – Laura’s Reviews

    “In A Perfect Bride for Mr. Darcy, Ms. Simonsen writes Pride and Prejudice as Jane Austen would have if she were alive today.” - Linda Banche, Romance Writer

    “Simonsen thankfully stays true to the essence of what has made the characters of Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy stand the test of time, allowing readers to see their mistakes, their vulnerability, and above all, the love that overcomes their pride and the conventions of their time period.” – Luxury Romance

    “Simonsen (Searching for Pemberley) spins off another superior Jane Austen homage.” – Publisher’s Weekly

  3. I enjoyed both comments. I personally loved the book. It was a breath of fresh air. I enjoyed your portrayal of Georgiana and Anne. It was fun to get to know their personalities better. Thanks so much for all your hard work.

  4. Suzan, Thank you for your nice comment and for being such a frequent commenter on my blog. Sometimes it gets rather lonely here.
