“I personally enjoyed this book more than I liked the original work, primarily because it was written as a murder mystery that actually kept me guessing throughout much of the novel. Complete with red herrings and other misdirects, it made for a fun read that was true to the period, although maybe not entirely to Austen’s text.” The first of two reviews for “Accusing Mr. Darcy on Nov. 9, 2020 came from Jathan and Heather’s blog.

“You’ll most certainly not want to put it down until the final page, and when you get there, you will want more.” Becky Holland offered her own thoughts on “Accusing Mr. Darcy” at her blog, When the Leaves Speak. See her entire review here:
I was excited to see that “Mr. Darcy’s Perfect Match” received a favorable review from the Historical Novel Society. This Regency “Pride & Prejudice” variation is now available in e-book, paperback, or audiobook, wonderfully narrated by Stevie Zimmerman!
Here is the link to the complete review:
“…Kelly Miller’s debut regency romance, ‘Death Takes a Holiday at Pemberley House’, was a thoroughly refreshing read.” Not only was the mother-vine of the English language used with alacrity and finesse, this well-paced novel kept my interest from the get-go.”

Death Takes a Holiday at Pemberley by Kelly Miller #book #review
I was thrilled to find out that my good friend Author Suzan Lauder’s book cover for A Most Handsome Gentleman, along with my book cover for Death Takes a Holiday at Pemberley, were featured in Pam Lecky’s Historical Fiction Cover Competition this month. This is a double honor for Artist Janet Taylor, whose talent is responsible for both covers. Check out the post here:

In my view, the idea of a character interview as a way to promote a book is rather odd and challenging. Odd because the reader will not fully appreciate the interview unless they have already read the book. Challenging because you do not want to give away any important plot points. Nevertheless, I took up the challenge and created a light-hearted look at a modern-day interview of Graham, the angel of death who visits Fitzwilliam Darcy in 1815 England. The interview was posted at Janet Taylor’s blog, More Agreeably Engaged, and you can see it here:
