Publisher's Summary

Who is this Mr. Darcy and what are his intentions? Like much of Meryton, the Bennets of Longbourn anticipate the arrival of Mr. Bingley and his friends to Netherfield, yet an unexpected visitor is not a part of Mr. Bingley's or Mr. Darcy's plans. While the two gentlemen attempt to control their uninvited guest, Elizabeth Bennet arrives to tend to her ill sister. An overheard conversation, the intriguing behavior of Mr. Darcy, and Miss Bingley's cloying manner all fascinate her, but manage to throw her emotions into turmoil as well. As Elizabeth becomes better acquainted with Mr. Darcy, his world unfolds and, if possible, it is more complicated than the man himself! Mysterious strangers and seducers lurk in the shadows - enough to threaten anyone's equanimity. Elizabeth's courage will be tested as she not only struggles to discover her own heart, but also why danger seems to surround Mr. Darcy.

    "Intriguing story"

    I loved this story. It was different and showed pride & prejudice from a different perspective. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes what-if stories and sequels to P&P. Great narrator as well.

    I'm a voracious fiction reader/listener but focus mostly on Sci-fi, fantasy (urban and alternate & other world), and romance. A mixture of these is what I love to find. Sci-fi to challenge my mind, fantasy to make me grin, and romance to turn my mind off to.

    "Lovely story"

    In essentials this story is a, "What if Elizabeth eaves dropped on everyone?" lol.
    Elizabeth overhears several things that allow her to get to know Darcy sooner. The real draw of the story, however, is in the subtle changes to characters and relationships woven through this reimagining. Because of this I won't go into more detail, as it would definitely ruin the surprises of the story, but so you have an idea of what type of variation you are getting: There are some passionate scenes but nothing very explicit. Also it is very centered on D&E; the use of other characters and relationships are used to drive their story not as filler or side line plots.
    (I did listen to it at 1.15x speed as the narrator was rather a ponderous reader, but none of the voices bothered me)

    "Great Story But Terrible Narrator"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    if they can tolerate a bad narrator yes


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She uses the same tone of voice for all characters, so you at times don't know whos talking it gets all mixed up


    Any additional comments?

    I did enjoy how Bingley was not a pushover for his sisters

    "Very, very well done"

    Leena Emsley does a fabulous job of narrating this book. She has different voices that work well for the characters and my interest was held throughout the book. It was certainly never boring. I truly think she is gifted, it's that good! And L. L. Diamond had written a very good book as well. This is a great match

    Riviting from beginning to end. Thoroughly enjoyable except that narrator could have varied her voice somewhat for each character.
