Publisher's Summary

A Pride and Prejudice variation. 

Mr. Darcy hopes Christmastime will help him to forget the pair of fine eyes he left behind in Hertfordshire. When Elizabeth Bennet appears unexpectedly in London, Darcy decides to keep his distance, resolved to withstand his attraction to her. But when he learns Wickham is threatening to propose to Elizabeth, Darcy faces a crisis. 

For her part, Elizabeth does not understand why the unpleasant master of Pemberley insists on dancing with her at the Christmas ball or how his eyes happen to seek her out so often. She enjoys Mr. Wickham’s company and is flattered when he makes her an offer of marriage. On the other hand, Mr. Darcy’s proposal is unexpected and unwelcome. 

But the more Elizabeth learns of Mr. Darcy, the more confused she becomes - as she prepares to make the most momentous decision of her life. 

It’s a yuletide season of love and passion as your favorite characters enjoy Christmas at Darcy House!

Fell Short for Me

I am sad to say, this variation fell short for me. I have read and enjoyed other books by Victoria Kincaid and narrations by Julie Eve, so I had very high expectations for this book.

I wanted to love this book so much, but I just had a hard time staying focused and engaged. I thought the idea of the story was interesting. I felt I understood what was going on in Darcy's head even more. The events that happened were so interesting, and yet they could not hold my attention. There were interesting twists and character involvement, and I still struggled.

Julia Eve, I enjoyed her narration overall, but I found at times Darcy needed to be a bit more excited about events going on in his life. I know he is reserved, but even still a bit more emotion would have been good at times.

I really feel this is a book that could still be involved by Jane Austen lovers if you do not mind variations that are quite unique. I have never read another Pride and Prejudice retelling quite like this. I really feel like everything I mentioned, are aspects I normally love, and so, I do plan to try listening to it again in the future and will update my review accordingly.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request, and I have voluntarily left this review.

Great story, but the narrator’s Darcy...

Great story, but the narrator’s Darcy, well he sounds about as disinterested and bored as you can get in several spots where he should have a bit more character. I’d give her 3-½ stars. The story was super fun, I loved Caroline’s ending!

Ah

I love Victoria Kincaid's books and this one did not disappoint. Darcy really bumbled his original proposal but it was interesting nonetheless. I really enjoyed the fact that Caroline Bingley and Wickham received their own comeuppance.
The narration was okay but could have been better.

A Fun Christmas Story

Ms. Kincaid has successfully written another delightful Bennett-Darcy story with lots of entertaining misunderstandings, twists and turns. Such fun to listen to the book.

Great story.

This book has the perfect mix of all the elements we love in an exceptional romance. The characters are very well constructed and the have depth and chemistry. This is a page turner that will have you cheering for the growing relationship between Elizabeth & William. Julia Eve does a fantastic job narrating. She is my favorite historical narrator.

Another twist to an interesting tale

Irrespective of what variation, Darcy and Elizabeth seem to fit together, like a hand in a glove.

Hard to say if I enjoyed this version more than the original.

I listened to the audiobook of this title, and found the narrator did a "rather bang up job" of the various characters vocalizations. It does add so much more to the tale.

Fun and entertaining!

Narrator did a good job; her voice fits the time period for the story. A good listening experience.

This book starts when Elizabeth is visiting her aunt and uncle. She’s already met Darcy and the rest, and has formed her not very good opinions about Darcy and her completely wrong positive opinion of Wickham. Lizzy is a bit more gullible towards Wickham in this story, but Darcy won’t allow Wickham to mess with Lizzy. Darcy doesn’t exactly make the best choices, but how he feels for Lizzy makes him act a bit crazy. Loved getting Darcy’s POV! It was great to see the depth of his love for Lizzy. Plus, I loved seeing more of Lizzy and Darcy’s relationship building up and seeing the passion of their connection. On top of dealing with Lizzy’s unfavorably opinion of Darcy, they have other obstacles in their way; Wickham and Miss Bingley are up to no good. This story was fun! It was great to get another look at the Pride and Prejudice story; makes me want to go watch one of the movies! Entertaining!

Although I spent most of the time guessing what happened prior, I was able to fill in the blanks and actually somewhat appreciate the story.

What An Entertaining Variation!

What a perfect time of the year to listen to this! Elizabeth and Darcy are such a fiercely beloved couple! This retelling was delightful! I loved this Mr. Darcy! There were a few things errors as to how households were actually ran, but for true fans, it shouldn't matter. The narrator was throughly entertaining!

Good story

Enjoyed the story, but personally I did not think the narrator was a good fit. Darcy’s voice in particular spoiled it for me - a bit robotic and monotonous.
