A delightful ending to the trilogy

This book takes off right where book 2 left off and ties up all the loose ends for a delightful ending. It seemed like Darcy and Elizabeth spent more time apart in this book solving many of their problems separately which took abit away from my enjoyment. But the end was very satisfying. Again I only have positives things to say about Jannie Meisberger’s narration. Her character voices are very good. She handles the humor and the more serious moments in the story wonderfully and keeps you involved and invested. I was given this book and by request and have left this review voluntarily.

A fun read

Barbara Silkstone does not disappoint. This third book in the series is so much fun, running around the palace, trying to find the Herman the Hermit, while evading the palace guards and the witch hunting Caroline Bingley. This third book veers far and wide from Pride and Prejudice, but it is a variation, and many veer. The humor we expect is front and center in the story and at times I was laughing hard enough to gasp for breath, just picturing a drunken Bingley among other scenes. It is wonderful for a quick read and a good laugh. The narrator, Jannie Meisberger, again, does an excellent job with the consistency of voices over the series, but did not have the verve of the previous narrations, although I enjoyed her performance.

I received the audio book as a gift from the author.

The excellent story continues

Would you listen to Darcy's Magical Message: Pride and Prejudice and Witches again? Why?

Every time Iisten, I hear more detail and twists that I missed the previous time. The characters and situations have a lovely depth to them.

What did you like best about this story?

The sideways twist at the end - I won't ruin it for anyone!

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

This is the third book narrated by Jannie. Her voice is easy to listen to. She does an excellent job with character development.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, although I never have the time.

Any additional comments?

Go back and listen to the first two books to get full enjoyment!

Funny Read

I received a copy of this book by the author if I would write an honest review. This is the third book in the Witches of Longhorn series.
This book was tons of fun. Barbara Silkstone has one funny sense of humor.
Lizzy and Fiona are going to Prince Regents castle to find the Hermit. While looking for him at the
palace, Lizzy has to do some spells, so that they don't get caught. There is a spell on Lizzy, that she
will turn to dust, so they are under a huge time limit, so that they can get back to Darcy so they can
find a way to undo the spell. Not knowing that Darcy is on his way to help Lizzy in the shape of an owl.
If you are looking for a quick, fun read this series should be on your list!!!

Still laughing about the potted plants!

I love Silkstone's imagination and sense of humor! This flight of fancy is the third of the Witches of Longbourn miniseries and wraps up the magical mishaps, and answers the marriage questions for Jane and Lizzie, and Fiona. It does fine as a stand alone, but it is really much more fun if you read all three--and they are nice and short, so no burden there.
Suspense in the search for The Hermit and avoidance of Princely groping, as well as Jane possibly turning to dust, and Darcy turning into an owl while Bingley acts as a drunken lout outside of the palace kept me reading instead of doing "other things".
If the situations don't have you ROFL, the dialogue will! Just the right length for a quick read, but I am always looking for the next Silkstone gigglefest.
Sadly, the narrator was fine on snark and burlesque, but with such incredible slowness this time that I was glad to have options on speed. Maybe it was too hot in the recording studio.

Fun pacey trilogy 🧡

Darcys Magical Message nicely rounds out the P&P & witches tale. Silkstone continued to cleverly capture the feel of Austins Pride and Prejudice once again delivering a vivid, witty, imaginative story.  All 3 books I listened to at 1.20X speed as I found the pauses between sentences interrupted the stories flow and irritating, however Meisburgers narration was clear, concise and her voice quite lovely.  I was given this book at my request and am voluntary leaving a review.

Fun and funny, part 3

Again, see the first book in the series for my full review. I liked the series, I thought it was new and fun twist on Pride and Prejudice though die-hard fanatics may not enjoy it as much as I did!

Enjoyable Light Romp

I received this book for free. I am voluntarily posting this review and all opinions expressed herein are my own. This is a Pride and Prejudice variation which is very entertaining. This is the third book in the trilogy and you have to start from the beginning to get in on all of the fun. There's good humor and very amusing situations. What an enjoyable romp with our favorite P&P characters - I especially loved the change to Caroline Bingley's character. The narrator, Jannie Meisberger, did a great job in amping up the entertainment factor of this book.

A Magical Romp!

In the third installment of the Witches of Longbourn series, Lizzy and the little love witch are headed to the Prince Regent's palace in the grasp of the enamored regent. Darcy is soon in pursuit, and uses his magic in an attempt to rescue her, but as always, his spells go awry. This is the third book in the series and you do need to read the first two to understand this one. It's a sweet variation and not to be taken seriously at all. By this point, the story doesn't resemble our Pride and Prejudice, it's just a fun romp with some of our favorite characters. This author writes humor very well, and had me smiling and laughing through several of the scenes. Caroline Bingley is in the role of villain in this story, and plays the part to perfection! The narration was well done, with voices for each character. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Magical Pride and Prejudice with plenty of humour

Take Pride and Prejudice. Add a little Bewitched. And a touch of Harry Potter. Sprinkle generously with humour. And this book is what you get.

Honestly, it isn't my cup of tea, but it has funny descriptions and interesting characters, including a very creepy Prince Regent. The book is third in this series and it is best to read/listen to the previous two books before you get to this one. I listened to this book first, which may be what retracted from my overall enjoyment of this story.

The narration performance is good. Jannie Meisberger's voice has a lyrical, storytelling quality that feels like a perfect match for this book.
