Publisher's Summary

A Pride and Prejudice Variation 

When Mr. Bingley abruptly left Hertfordshire, Jane Bennet’s heart was broken. Since arriving in London to visit her aunt and uncle, Jane has been hoping to encounter Mr. Bingley; however, it becomes clear that his sister is keeping them apart. But what would happen if she took matters into her own hands? Defying social convention, she sets out to alert Mr. Bingley to her presence in London, hoping to rekindle the sparks of their relationship. Bingley is thrilled to encounter Jane and renew their acquaintance, but his sister has told him several lies about the Bennets - and his best friend, Mr. Darcy, still opposes any relationship. As Jane and Bingley sort through this web of deceit, they both find it difficult to maintain their customary equanimity. However, they also discover that sometimes good things happen when Jane gets angry.

Love it

I absolutely love it!!! I wish this could have been added to the original novel. Caroline is such a pain in the a**, what a witch (wait, that’s a complete insult to real witches ;p). I seriously disliked what she had attempted to do, glad it backfired on her. I absolutely love hearing about Charles’ and Janes’ take on the story and to see them together. I hope to hear other like this one.

jane and Bingley get attention

Cute, clean, short, and sweet. While I am a JAFF, there are few books that develop Jane and Bingley beyond whispering with their heads together in the corner of the room. i always find that frustrating and feel authors are amiss in not developing their romance. Finaly, here is an author has seized that opportunity. Some parts are a little far fetched and not true to Regency England, but enjoyable enough that you won't mind. Several characters are glad Jane got angry

An entertaining variation.

This story is an enjiyable variation to listen to. Jane Bennet gets angry and because of her anger does something you would not expect. This leads to more fun happenings. The narrator is excellent and the pace of the story wonderful. A delightful listen.

Good things happens when Jane gets angry

After 3 short hours of listening to Jane Bennet and how she lets her temper get the better of her with Caroline Bingley, I was amazed and beyond pleased with both Stevie’s performance as both Jane and Bingley, and all of their friends and family alike, though the most funny part was definitely the ladies maid who got the whole plot running. Loved it! Loved to see how Jane lost her serene personality for once 🙂

Even a Sweetheart Can Be Pushed Too Far!

I enjoy when minor characters from Jane Austen's novels get their time to shine as the stars and that was particularly so with sweet, soft Jane Bennet from Pride & Prejudice and jovial, generous Charles Bingley in this quick novella. When Jane Got Angry is an apt title. Jane had a wake up moment when haughty social climber Caroline Bingley sat in her aunt's parlor looking disdainfully about and saying words designed to break Jane's heart. The story departed from canon here when Jane chose to be skeptical of Caroline's words and her motive for saying them. Jane does it one better and questions Caroline and forcing her to admit that she might have stretched things and shared more her wishes for her brother than the actual truth. I enjoyed seeing this gentle creature turn her rational mind to what she heard and saw and form the proper conclusions. And, then get properly het up and willing to fight for her own happiness- and that included a confrontation with Mr. Bingley if he was part of this hurtful discovery that he might know she was in London and was snubbing her. It is interesting to see how lives are touched by each person's actions. Because Jane took the bull by the horns, the dominoes fell in quite the different pattern alternating her story and her sister's with Darcy. I had a blast watching it all unfold even if the vixen of this story was quite the selfish piece of work. Now, I did enjoy this one in audio format with the incomparable Stevie Zimmerman voicing Jane and the rest of the cast. I've enjoyed her work before and this time was no exception. Accents, gender, class, and changing scenes were all done fabulously. All in all, this quick and engaging story was a delight from start to finish and I can heartily recommend it to Austen fans and others who enjoy a sweet and quick historical romance.

Fun and Unique

I really enjoyed listening to this novella. I liked this exploration of what might have happened if Jane stood up for herself. it was quite the ripple effect! Jane Bennet to the rescue! A fun listen!

Jane shows Miss Bingley her claws

Jane is more than a match for an even more than usually foul Miss Bingley. And Charles finally grows a backbone. Together, the determined couple thwart the despicable machinations of the woman who cares nothing for anyone but herself. It is lovely to see. Stevie Zimmerman imbues Victoria Kincaid’s versions of JA’s creations with characters do richness. A very entertaining book.
