This is a wonderful story , and a great Pride and Prejudice variation. it takes you on a very different journey with Darcy and Elizabeth. It is well worth listening to.

I really enjoyed this story, but the narrator not so much. I found the narrator's cadence annoying, so much so that it took away from my pleasure in thevstory. The story itself is a lovely variation of Pride and Prejudice goes beyond the timeline of the original.

This is a good enough story, but the narrator makes it almost impossible to listen to. I liked howthe story is about Lizzy after a terrible period on her life where she was married to Mr Collins. The romance between Lizzy and Darcy is good. Unfortunately the narrator end almost every statement with a downward inflection and her reading took away much of thr meaning in the story. I will not be buying any other books read by this narrator in the future.

"Stop!" Darcy called dashing ahead of Lizzie to catch their toddlers, but it was too late. Before he could reach the boys, little Annie had followed them under the ground. Three children and one rather handsome husband all suddenly vanished. Lizzie did the only thing she could think of and threw herself into a full-body slide down the dark, mossy rabbit hole. This is the ninth book in the popular Mister Darcy series of comedic mysteries.

This was another fun listen about Mister Darcy and Lizzie. I enjoyed this ending to the series and thought that many storylines were ended properly. I am sad that there will be no more new stories for this duo.

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.
