Love, marriage…and a family. It’s the same old story. If only it could be ours.
Well, here’s a reality check for you: life’s remixing that old song that goes “first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in the baby carriage”. You know the one. Me and my real life Mr. Darcy are happily grooving to that tune—right up until things take a sharp left turn.
It seems for us, creating a mini Darcy is like baking a soufflé without a recipe—a very tricky business, and so far our attempts are fizzling out faster than a New Year’s resolution.
So, I declare war. It’s what any A-type American woman would do.
Now, I’m armed with mood swings that could rival a seesaw and more needles (and ovulation kits) than you’d find in a haystack. Oh, and let’s not forget Sebastian’s granny’s disapproving stare that could melt icebergs. That’s always super welcome.
But I’m not going to give up fighting for our tiny family dream. Not even when all the odds seem stacked against us and my A-type personality drive shrivels into a directionless slug.
But when it turns out that I’m the one to blame for all our failures, how can I ever feel that I’m enough for my Mr. Darcy?
Rest of World
Praise for Falling for Another Darcy
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “A charming romantic comedy full of heart and humor, Falling for Another Darcy is a joy to read. With vibrant characters and a humor-filled narrative, author Kate O’Keeffe tells a heartwarming tale of a young woman’s struggles to come to terms with the demands of her English aristocratic husband’s family as she is unable to give them an heir. The characters are full of life, with distinct personalities that win you over instantly. Emma is a likable protagonist who is relatable and easy to root for. I found myself thoroughly invested in her relationship with Sebastian. But it was the scenes with granny Geraldine that delivered some of the most hilarious moments of the book for me. I recommend Falling for Another Darcy to anyone who enjoys romantic comedies.” – Readers’ Favorite

Readers LOVE Falling for Another Darcy
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “Brilliantly addressing diverse issues with grace and wit. Deserves more than 5*. Not only was the book informative but it dressed a profoundly serious issue in a seemingly light-hearted delivery medium. That is hard to do well at the best of times as we know, but to succeed in conveying heartache, pain, inadequacy, anxiety, uncertainty in the middle of what are difficult personal circumstances for Emma was a remarkable achievement by the author. ” – Amazon reviewer
