Review of Marrying Mr. Darcy by Kate O'Keeffe

The laugh-out-loud and feel-good sequel to Dating Mr. Darcy from USA TODAY bestselling author, Kate O'Keeffe.

Is it a truth universally acknowledged, that a girl can humiliate herself on reality TV and still get her fairy tale ending?

Emma Brady is in shock. She fell in love with Sebastian Huntington-Ross on national television, showing everyone that opposites can most definitely attract. Now, he's asked her to marry him and live happily ever after in his fancy English manor. It's a fairy tale ending.

Or is it?

The problem is the TV audience wanted Sebastian to marry someone else. And in choosing Emma to be his bride, Sebastian could lose everything his aristocratic family has held dear for generations. Not to mention Lady Jilly Fotherington, who goes out of her way to make Emma feel like she doesn't belong.

With enough hurdles to keep an Olympian jumping, can Emma and Sebastian find a way to stay together? Or will the pressures pulling them apart cancel their trip down the aisle?

**My thoughts**

Oh, how the reality TV world is annoying. The audience isn’t happy that Sebastian, aka Mr. Darcy, found his true Elizabeth, aka Emma, and defied the rules of reality TV to do so. His grandmother isn’t particularly enthusiastic, either. It just gets worse when Sebastian actually proposes to Emma. Their marriage will give her the title of a lady. And, well, she’s not exactly your stereotypical aristocratic lady.

But this is why we all love her.

And now they have to figure out how to save the family estate as well. That’s the real reason Sebastian agreed to do the TV show in the first place. Phoebe and Johnathan, who met on the show, are getting married (again, much to the dismay of TV viewers) and have agreed to televise their wedding. So of course, producers want him to film Sebastian and Emma’s. And the money would come in handy.

So now as Emma is learning how to fit in with the traditional British aristocracy, she is also trying to help figure out how to bring them into the 21st century. And in typical Emma style, the foibles along the way will make you laugh out loud.

And the backstabbing that happened on the reality TV show almost doesn’t even hold a candle to what’s in store for them now.

A lot of people don’t like Emma and they are going to do whatever they can to sabotage her relationship with Sebastian. You’ll notice a lot of nods to the Jane Austen novel, but in a subtle and entertaining enough way. I liked this one almost as much as the first one and can’t wait for the third book.
