Amazon Bestselling Author
Jane Austen’s beloved characters return in this novella, a contemporary variation on Pride and Prejudice, one of the most popular novels in English literature. This is Book One in the Mister Darcy Series of five books by Barbara Silkstone. Each book can and does stand alone as a separate novella and yet each allows for the relationship between Darcy and Lizzie to unfold in a natural, unhurried way.
Doctor Lizzie Bennet, struggling against her conservative English countryside upbringing, determines to prove her worth as a dog psychologist. Nothing will deter her from her career until she meets the uppity and oh-so mysterious Londoner, Mister Darcy. His on-again, off-again flirtatious manner, and his pompous putdowns challenge Lizzie’s short temper. When Mister Darcy hires her to train his lovable basset hounds for an important foxhunt, Lizzie accepts the task despite knowing next to nothing about the sport and harboring an intense fear of horses.
Two of the villains Austen fans love to boo and hiss arrive to torment Lizzie: Caroline Bingley, in hot pursuit of Mister Darcy does all she can to discredit and humiliate Lizzie. Mister Darcy’s old nemesis, George Wickham, stalks the Bennet family.
Will Lizzie keep her focus or succumb to her fate? And what, pray tell, is her fate?
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
s a devoted fan of Barbara Silkstone’s work, I’m well aware of her sense of humor, great plotting and excellent descriptive writing. If you are looking for a quick read, with great characters, poignant observations on some British traditions, and laugh out loud humor, grab “Mr. Darcy’s Dogs” and fall in love with this new Barbara Silkstone series.
This is one of my favorite books that I have read recently. I have read and loved Barbara’s other works and she has shifted her genre a bit here and done it well. This is a lovely book with mystery and flirtation, leading to … well, you must read it to find out.
It’s a cute story with a lot of tongue-in-cheek humor and dry sarcasm. It’s sort of a Jane Austen meets Monty Python tale. I truly enjoyed it, and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys British wit.
While still paying homage to the famous novel, Mr. Darcy’s Dogs has a story quite its own that totally drew me in. It’s a really fun escape that has me panting for the next one (pun intended)!
This is one of Barbara’s best yet. I love her style,a handsome wealthy leading man, a mystery man, who to believe??? As always a subtle movie reference, I love Lauren Bacall,,,,, You gotta read it to find out!!!!!!!

“I enjoy doing playful things with language, blending two distinct words to create a new word. If I’m laughing out loud when I’m writing, then I know I’ve hit the mark. I laugh so loud while I’m writing that the neighbors think I’m having wild parties. I’m not. I live in South Florida where I survive on buttered popcorn and fried chicken… extra crispy.”
