It is wonderful to have your research for your novel appreciated by readers with knowledge of Regency history. Mr. Ridyard makes his expertise plain in his informative review of “Accusing Mr. Darcy.” I could not be more pleased than when he shared with me that his own parents had been dog breeders and utilized the now-obscure term “springing spaniels” for the breed known today as “springer spaniels.” His full review can be seen here:

“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!

“…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.”
