Darcy shares his secret vow and his bed with Lizzie Bennet in this fifth book in the Mister Darcy series of comedic mysteries. Will Lizzie help Darcy prevent the theft of the legendary Red Rosary? Can Lizzie get even with Caroline Bingley? And who is the mystery woman in Lizzie's father's life? Can be heard as a standalone, but it helps to listen to the series from the beginning.
Based on the enduring characters created by Jane Austen, this is a contemporary spin on a classic tale of love denied and love discovered.

Lizzy wants to know Darcy's secrets, but he isn't quite ready to share them. There is angst, but the comedic errors on Lizzie's part had me laughing. The lotion and the antique desk, the mud room at the spa and Caroline Bingley. Barbara writes with such humor and keeps the plot moving along. There is even a character called Hyacinth Bucket, named after a favorite character from Keeping Up Appearances. I had a difficult time getting out of the car to go into work. The narrator,has kept the voices distinct throughout the series and was enjoyable to listen tI received the audiobook as a gift from the author in exchange for my honest review.
I really loved this book. Lizzy's character is a lot of fun. In this book someone is out to steal the Red Rosary and Mister Darcy asks for help from Lizzy to find out who is behind it.
Mister Darcy finally breaks down and tells Lizzy his deepest secret.
Avid reader who is also a mommy. Audible saved my reading time!
This was an interesting premise for Jane Austen fan fiction. For an avowed Jane Austen fan, the plot was a little thin and some of the characters were a stretch. But I did enjoy parts of the story and the tongue in cheek style of Barbara Silkstone's storytelling. In the end, I didn't love it but thought it was a bit of fun and good for some light listening.
Lizzie is about to become engaged to Mr. Darcy but they keep getting interrupted. And Lizzie is questioning whether or not to accept Mr. Darcy, who obviously still has secrets he is keeping from her. Add to that a legendary rosary kept and protected by the Templars, a bunker used by Sir Winston Churchill that is about to be made into a nightclub, and George Wickham back in Georgiana's life, and you have a lot of trouble and things that can go wrong for Lizzie and her lover.
Jannie Meisberger's narration was good for the material and she did a good job with both male and female voices.

While this story is well written and nicely narrated, I can't say that I could get my head around the fact that the names of the characters have been reused or borrowed from Jane Austen. I think that this has spoilt this series for me.
This story could definitely have had its own characters and still have been good. To me, the characters will forever belong in the Jane Austen time span and not the current one.
I was continuously shocked when something modern was mentioned - but that's me. Others might like this idea but I'm afraid it just wasn't my cup of tea.

I admit to yawning at Pride and Prejudice, but this modernized farcical series has me glued to it and laughing myself sillier. There is never any boredom with Silkstone books, only awful puns, lots of snark, twisty plots, and a sidewise take on things familiar. See publisher's notes for a clue to the plot, but there is soooo much more to the story! And if you can plug it into your ear, so much the better! Might not be suited for reading when strangers are near, or with liquids in hand due to severe cases of giggles.
Jannie M gives a better performance every time she records a new episode, but I must be a New Yorker at heart, because I am thankful for the rate of speed feature.
