Publisher's Summary

A month to find a mate!

Mr. Darcy desires marriage to Elizabeth Bennet, but he ruins any such prospect during his proposal at Hunsford. The resulting general sense of malaise interferes with his usually amicable yet stately demeanor, and his Fitzwilliam relatives resolve that Darcy is lonely - he must be in want of a wife. His cousins convince him to leap into the London Season for one month and partner every lady they select for his felicity.

At Longbourn, chaos erupts as Mr. Bennet undergoes a transformation, and Jane and Elizabeth receive the gift of a month in town to enjoy the Season. Meanwhile, Elizabeth pores over Mr. Darcy's Hunsford letter and wonders about him, warmed by his words.

It's only a matter of time before the two meet again in this Pride and Prejudice novella. But will their encounter be a repeat of the earlier disaster, or will they overcome their tenuous history? And can Elizabeth's credentials pass the stringent criteria of the scheming Fitzwilliam cousins who direct Darcy towards the single daughters of every peer of the realm?

Flub?

45 or so seconds into chapter 3 there’s an audio flub. Dialogue repeats because narrator flubbed the sentence?

Fun story

A great short P&P variation, very well written and developed. I loved playful Darcy, and the Fitzwilliam clan was entertaining. Darcy’s meeting with Elizabeth and his steadfast attempts to court her were sweet. Of course there is a HEA and not much angst.

As always Stevie Zimmerman’s narration was perfect. She gave personality to every character through her voice. And I was in awe how she could portray different classes through changing way of speaking (Quality vs servants).
Highly recommended

👏👏👏

I love Stevie Zimmerman's narratives so I was surprised by the major editing gaff in chapter 3 where she fumbled significantly and it was not edited out.

I really enjoyed the storyline.
