Publisher's Summary

Lizzie plots a secret garden wedding for her sister, Jane, and Charles Bingley. Can she outsmart Mother Bennet or will the gorgon prevail? With her nerves in high gear, Mrs. Bennet plans the marriage of her eldest daughter. Behind the scenes, Lizzie races against the clock to design a small garden wedding ahead of her mother's over-the-top ball. Can Darcy cart the unsuspecting Mrs. Bennet to the garden ceremony? Will Mr. Bennet cooperate with Lizzie's plans, or does Pansy Cottage still cast a long shadow in his memories?

How to Plan a Wedding Without Mrs. Bennet

I loved this story by Barbara Silkstone. Even though it is part 4 in the series it works very well as a stand alone; I haven't read or listened to the others yet. As Lizzy and Jane prepare for Jane and Bingley's wedding they must keep Mrs. Bennet from ruining Jane's plans. Lizzie has a cellphone picture of Lydia and Mrs. Bennet in a hilarious position (positively one that they wouldn't want seen). How she uses it is genius. And how they conspire to keep Mrs. Bennet in the dark and get her to the wedding is so funny. I chuckled all the way through the book. The Irish Wolfhound is most definitely a favorite character of mine. He, in my opinion, becomes the hero of the story. Karen Krause brought out nuances of the story that I might have missed, with her pronunciation and emphasis on phrases, had I read the story. I highly recommend the audio book as well as the story.

I was given a copy of the audio book in exchange for my honest review

Great Book!

Any additional comments?

This is a great book; this is the fourth book in the A Mister Darcy Series written by Barbara Silkstone and narrated by Karen Krause. This book can be listened to in one sitting if you have the time, once I started listening to it I didn’t want to put it down until the end. This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. Lizzie plots a secret garden wedding for her sister, Jane, and Charles Bingley.

The narrator Karen Krause did a great 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 fun book with great characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.
