Publisher's Summary

A light comedy novella

Based on the enduring characters created by Jane Austen, this is a contemporary spin on a classic tale of love denied and love discovered.

Christmas just became a lot more complicated for dog psychologist Lizzie Bennet and her sisters. While shopping in London, they find little urchin Annie and her dog, Sammy. As a fierce snowstorm takes over the city, the aloof but alluring Mister Darcy invites the girls, including Annie and Sammy, to spend the night at his penthouse.

With the best of intentions, Darcy asks Annie and her seven siblings to join the Bennet sisters for a quiet Christmas Eve celebration in his London fortress. The skulduggery begins when Caroline Bingley - the villainess Austen fans love to boo - shows up acting the part of the Grinch and Scrooge combined.

Barbara Silkstone is the best-selling author of 10 novels and four box sets. Her comedy mysteries feature goodhearted heroines caught up in screwball situations.

Mister Darcy's Christmas is the second book in Silkstone's Mister Darcy series of light comedies based on Jane Austen's timeless tales of jolly old England.

Love Love Love this story!!

I was so excited when this book became available in audio version..
The characters in this book are so much fun!! The relationship between Lizzy and Mister Darcy moves along in this second book of the Mister Darcy Series. The story is sweet and Annie just melts your heart. I really hope that some of these same characters make an appearance in the next book.
This is a really sweet book, that just warms your heart.

A great Christmas story!

I was definitely not a fan of Pride and Prejudice in my school age years and still to this day, but oh my god! This was an absolutely great book to read! Annie is a delightful little girl that one my heart from her first comment. It was great to see the dad get some nerve as well and step up for his children!

The narrator Karen Krause does an awesome job of bringing the characters to live and having you laughing one moment or wanting to strangle someone another. I definitely need to go back and get book one and continue reading this series!

4.5

Genre: Fluffy romance, British

Summary:
Lizzie almost gets run over but a stray dog of sorts saves her. The dog is traveling with a scruffy little girl. Lizzie and her sisters take the street urchin to Mr. Darcy’s place to get out of a storm. The next day, they plan to have a lovely Christmas eve with the street urchin’s family, a rather large collection of kids.

Additional Comments:
• Light, fluffy romance.
• This one can be read without the previous and likely subsequent stories in the series. It’s a re-imagining of Pride and Prejudice. Still baffles me the amount of spinoffs that okay story has generated.
• Darcy’s still a saint, but this round, Elizabeth is holding him at bay because she wants to start a dog psychology business all on her own.
• Thank heavens she doesn’t mention she’s Doctor Bennett every 3 seconds like she did in the first book. That was super annoying. If you have to stress it that much, nobody gives 2 shakes of a dog’s tail, get over yourself.
• Georgiana’s still sweet and naïve. Wickham’s not mentioned at all, thank goodness.
• Caroline Bingley is a twit and mean spirited to boot.
• Jane and Charles are still moon-eyed.
• Derby and Squire – Darcy’s dogs – are still adorable.

Conclusion:
This isn’t a deep thinker. If you’re into light, fluffy Christmas cheer sorts of romantic comedies, this should fit the bill fine.
*I got the book on a free code site. I understand I do not have a set-in-stone obligation to share my thoughts but have freely chosen to do so anyway.

Mr. Darcy's Christmas

This is a fun series. There is a lot of tongue-in-cheek humor (little orphan Annie, really!?). Well worth the listen

Delightful

Spin on the Jane Austin tale. Lizzie and her sisters meet and befriend Annie and her dog Sammy. Which become a Christmas for all when Mr Darcy opens his home. Mayhem when the Grinch shows up. Delightful

Automaton reader

Not a bad story, and some clever updating of the well known and beloved characters (or, despised characters in some cases), but just not outstanding. Outright theft of Bridget Jones' Marc Darcy's Christmas sweater- not nice! Worst strike against this book, however, is the robotic voice of its narrator. And, judging by the free intro for the next book, Mr Darcy's Secret, she (it) is along for the series run. I won't go
