I have enjoyed this whole series. The humour is wonderful, yet the essence of Darcy and Elizabeth is always present. The cast of chatacters fit the story so well, you can't help but enjoy yourself.
This is a great book; this is the eighth book in the Mister Darcy series written by Barbara Silkstone and narrated by Jannie Meisberger. Darcy and Lizzie, now happily married, are off on another Templar quest. With their first baby due in two months, Darcy insists that Lizzie remain in London while he adventures to Malta. Pregnancy will not hamper Lizzie; she is determined to stand by her husband. Lizzie inserts herself in the caper, accompanied by Boris, the Russian wolfhound, and other surprise stowaways.
The narrator Jannie Meisberger did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to in one sitting and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.
If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

Perhaps if my friend was library dog-lady with a penchant for modern-day mysteries solved by Jane Austen characters and their clever canine counterparts.
I had lots of time, so I did listen to it in one day. It was largely an enjoyable listen.
I felt that the solving of the mystery at the end unfairly relied on a mystical event rather than some impressive display of logical deduction. I have not listened to any mysteries other than Ayn Rand's throughly logical plays and Atlas Shrugged (The consummate mystery).

I enjoyed the story and loved Jennie Meisberger's narration. As expected, Lizzy does not listen to Darcy, when he tells her her to stay home. Even more importantly, Boris, her Russian wolfhound tags along and it turns out to be a good thing he does. Barbara sends us romping on another fun lark . Even though this story is the seventh in the series it can be read as a stand alone story.
A light Sherlock Holmes story with clues to follow.
No but I liked her cadence and diction.
Follow the clues to high adventure.

Top middle of the pack. It kept my interest, amused me, and gave me Awwww! dog moments. I also really like Templar stories and incorrigibly optimistic heroines.
Definitely the bunny slippers. This is my first Mister Darcy story, so I've never encountered the bunny slippers before. An admirable communication tool.
It was a little too stop-and-go; could have been smoother, but very good overall.
Giggles. Lots of giggles.

I did not read the print version so I would not know.
No, it is a nice easy mystery. The story works because the interplay of the characters is fun, and the word play is clever.
I listened to the first one. The first set the stage for the series. This is a meatier story and you get to travel to Malta.
I loved Annie and Sammy. All the animals were perfect.

A lover of cozy mysteries, contemporary romance and getting lost in the world of audiobooks
This has all the makings for a wonderful listen: action, enjoyable characters & a fun plot. I especially loved the British aspect as I tend to really enjoy reading stories that include the posh lifestyles of Brits. I don't know that I would classify this as a "comedic mystery" though. I didn't find myself really laughing all that much. Sure some parts were tongue in cheek but it wasn't obviously comedic. Still really enjoyable though, and if you love cozy mysteries with some action mixed in then you will love this listen!

No spoilers from me! Sexy, romantic stories, thrillers, mystery, relationship stories.. my library is a crazy mix.
This cozy mystery is a short listen, under 4 hours. As a part of a super-sleuth series, this light-hearted, somewhat silly romp includes a very pregnant Lizzy, her smart Borzoi, silly Basset Hounds and a secret mission with a Maltese Falcon.
It is entertaining, easy humor combined with a mystery - just as a cozy mystery should be. I have not read or listened to the other books in this series, which didn't matter as this could be enjoyed as a stand-alone.
