Publisher's Summary

The morning after the Netherfield ball, Elizabeth Bennet refuses an offer of marriage, setting off a row in the Bennet household that ends tragically.

Faced with homelessness and untenable poverty, Elizabeth receives a different sort of offer - from quite an unexpected quarter - and finds herself considering the once-inconceivable prospect of going into trade.

When Elizabeth and her sisters open a tea shop in Meryton, she must deal with Mary's penchant for entertaining the customers, Mama's enthusiasm for the officers, Kitty's fear of French spies, Caroline Bingley's relentless attempts to degrade her, and Mr. Darcy's irritating refusal to get out of her life!

    "Light and fun P&P Variation"

    What a fun variation of Pride and Prejudice. This book has a totally different plot from the original but it is very respectful of each character's personality and behavior. Even the changes in the family dynamics was an interesting and unique diversion. A definite must listen for those who enjoy P&P variations. 🌼

    The narration was very well done. She connected with each character and delivered a fine rendition.

    Note: No warnings for this book.....it's a clean listen. 😉

    My sincere thanks to the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audio book in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

    "WOW, I so enjoyed this audio"
    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrative by Jannie Meisberger was outstanding I enjoyed every moment, it felt like I was watching a movie. It was beautifully written so I'm sure it was a joy for Jannie to narrate.


    Have you listened to any of Jannie Meisberger’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first audio with Jannie but I will certainly look for books that she has narrated.


    Any additional comments?

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy by the author, narrator or publisher.

    "Amazing"

    This is my first book by this author & it didn't disappoint. I love anything remotely related to Pride & Prejudice. Especially variations & new twists on the original story. Kate Bedlow's new book was just the right mix of lol moments & a few tears.
    She captured the spirit, politics & social mores of the time to the point, I felt I was actually there at times.

    The narrator, Jeannie Miesberger is her usual wonderful self. I love listening to anything she has done for Barbara Silkstone so I was very pleased to find that she had done this one.

    If you are looking for a new author with a fresh, new take on period Lizzie & Darcy, Kate Below's Fair Trade is perfect.

    Story
    "What if the Bennet sisters ran a tea room..."

    The usual characters (for the most part) in a version of the story with some very fine twists and turns along the way. I especially liked this portrayal of the younger Bennet sisters, Darcy and Fitzwilliam's new cousin and the ending - which is not to be missed.

    Story
    "Not What I Expected"

    I was given this book in exchange for an unbiased review via audiobook boom. This story was well written and the narrator was spot on. Each character was unique. But I think I was expecting to spend my 8 plus hours listening to the story of how Darcy and Elizabeth worked together to make the tea shop a continued success with doses of the other stories thrown in. I was disappointed to find that their love story came in the epilogue. I have listened to several variations of the story and this was a good one. i just expected more of the H and h love story.

    I've rarely met an audio book I didnt like. I love rom-com, cozy murder mystery, and self-help.

    Story
    "A Twist to Darcy and Elizabeth"

    This was such a fun story that has quite a twist from the original, occurring just after the Netherfield Ball. I enjoyed the portrayals of the characters. Lydia's role was quite unexpected, but we don't realize what she is doing until the very end. There is a angst eased by some parts that had me laughing. I love how Jannie Meisberger narrated the story. She brought out nuances and made the characters come to life. An excellent story told by a wonderful narator. I highly recommend this story.

    "A real delight!"

    What fun! Character twists and lively dialogue make this version different in a good way from the original as well as different from others who have adapted the original for those of us who weren't as enamored of Austen originals. No spoilers here, just opinion that most will thoroughly enjoy this work regardless of fondness for Austen's original!
    I was very fortunate to snag an audio copy and Jannie Meisberger does as fine a performance with this as she does for Barbara Silkstone's gigglefests.

    "Just wonderful"

    This quickly became one of my favorite P&P vacations. Full of drama, it captured the spirit of the original characters and book perfectly yet still stood on its own. Well written it was a joy to listen to.

    The narrator is very good. I really enjoyed her performance.

    Story
    "Enjoying Pride &Prejudice in an alternate universe"

    This is a delightful variation of Pride and Prejudice that has the feel of being in an alternate universe. Let me be absolutely clear, this is not a sci-fi story. Not at all. The basic plot is the same. The era presented by the setting and language is also the same. It differs in the details and therein lies the drama, intrigue and fun. This book is thoroughly enjoyable for anyone who loves Jane Austen. It starts a little slowly but is well worth persevering as the plot begins to thicken.

    Jannie Meisberger's narration compliments Kate Bedlow's story wonderfully. She brings the characters to life and gives credibility to the regency setting.

    Pride and Prejudice delight through and through!!
