Publisher's Summary

Georgiana Darcy has gone missing. Lizzy Bennet knows just what to do to find her.

‘Tis no secret that Lizzy Bennet has dreams. The uniquely talented daughter of a woman with a dubious reputation, Lizzy knows she must make her own way in a world that shuns her. 

Fitzwilliam Darcy carries the stains of his family’s dishonor upon his soul, and only by holding himself to the strictest standards has he reclaimed his place in society. 

If his 15-year-old sister cannot be found quickly, her scandal could destroy years of perfect behavior. Lizzy is willing to join the pursuit to get what she wants, but will Darcy be willing to trust her with his secrets? And what will they do when the search for Georgiana reveals what neither expected to find?

This Pride and Prejudice variation is two stories in one book. The first book starts in Ramsgate with the disappearance of Miss Darcy and follows the adventures of Elizabeth Bennet as she seeks to find her. In the second book, our favorite couple has recognized their feelings for one another, but more surprises and challenges still await them at Pemberley.

The erratic narration distracts from the story.

Ms Cooper has written a wonderful tale, which is buried under the wobbling narration. Is the narrator actually English? Is she trying to sound American? The elocution is deplorable in any accent.

Quite Refreshing

The Perfect Gentleman is a very refreshing PNP variant. The storyline centers quite significantly around ODC and Georgiana instead of the whole Bennet family. Elizabeth's mother, father and older sister are introduced to the story instead of the whole cannon family. But they are more place holders to explain Elizabeth's circumstances. There's no real significant interaction with them in the storyline.
Darcy and Elizabeth have a brilliant meet-cute and the attraction is almost immediate on both ends but circumstances keep ODC apart for about half the book. I really enjoyed the their struggles and how they overcame them.

Great listen!

Julie Cooper has a wonderful debut story. And narrator Lillian Rachel does it justice as narrator. Easy to recommend.

One of the Best Variations

This is one of the most wonderful P&P variations I’ve read - especially for a first effort! I love that it’s a long novel that takes the time for the development of the relationship between Darcy and Elizabeth intertwining creative events to bring out their characters. I like that Elizabeth is an artist. It’s also nice that it includes one of Darcy’s parents. Bravo!! Can’t wait to read the next one!
