Summary

For Elizabeth Bennet, Charlotte is the friend who is—annoyingly—always right. Colonel Fitzwilliam is the mischievous brother she never had. And if their convictions that Mr. Darcy is in love with her are correct, he could be the lover she’s always wanted. 

There’s only one problem—he tried to ruin her favorite sister’s life, and she made an absolute fool of herself in front of him. 

Can lasting happiness come out of such a beginning? And can a man die from chasing a woman too quick to be caught? Darcy is about to find out.

Lots of potential

This story has a lot of potential, but it was like a fantastic first draft. If they teamed up with a good editor, this book could be made better.

Another hit

Ms Elizabeth Adams did again. This is a wonderful story. I quite enjoyed it.

Ms Elizabeth Grace is a wonderful narrator and is a great job bringing the story to life. There was a tiny editing stumble but it didn't affect the overall performance.

Always a fan of Elizabeth Adams!

I love this story because Darcy realizes that just expecting any woman to say yes to his proposals, while despising the type of woman who would, is an unfair expectation of Elizabeth Bennet. So he must court her and let her get to know him. And it is a lovely courtship with hiccups and stumbles, romance and growth all along the way.

But what made me decide to write a review is the narrator. Elizabeth Grace is a truly fantastic narrator and has joined my list of top five favorites; a list that includes Xe Sands, Harry Frost, Mary Jane Wells, and Lillian Rachel. Her male voices are delightful. The Colonel's voice takes a word or two for her to get into the feel of it but her Darcy voice is a low sexy voice and it works well. I will be watching for more books narrated by her.

One of the best variations!

This P&P variation was one of the most fun variations I’ve ever read. Great mix of a departure from the normal story line, but not too far. Lots of humor and heartfelt situations where Darcy gets to prove his love of Elizabeth resulting in her finally falling for him. The characters of the Colonel and great uncle Darcy were the best. Thank you Ms. Adams!

Not sure about the negative reviews

I am not sure about the negative reviews (although I know everyone has the right to their own opinion) but I thought this was a delightful variation and I enjoyed it very much.

Loved the entire story until the end!

So far out of the 60+ P&P variation audible I have listen to this would have been the best. Until the end. It just ended abruptly, this book needed an epilog, this is why variation are great you see beyond the marriage. We all know ODC marries, of course variation changes the story but it's the ending. Seeing beyond. Several years down the road. How they are with kids and family.
I keep searching for the perfect happy variation that gives more then this book. I love this type of seeing the couple together, love growing stronger but I really love the beyond part.

A bit overblown and unbelievable

The characters in this version have little to do with the Austen original, to the point I couldn’t listen. Maybe if they weren’t meant to be Darcy and Elizabeth, if they were original creations in their own original story, I could go along listening to their story without wincing. Besides the out of character behaviors and words, every minute detail is so heavily over-explained (every sigh, ever gesture, every facial expression, etc) that I found myself rolling my eyes and becoming annoyed. This is my 4th attempt at JAFF and only the first (Unequal Affections) was worth listening to and true to the original. Why rewrite a brilliant novel only to change the best parts of it? Better to let the inspiration lead to something fresh that can stand on its own two legs.

A Marvelous Story

I bought this book because I have read others by Elizabeth Adams and enjoyed them. This one is now one of my new favorites! I laughed through parts and felt hopeful through others. The characters are drawn so well and the reader does a wonderful job in portraying each one. If you like low angst stories with a satisfying happy ending, this one is for you.

Great story

This story was as great as the author’s other books. Elizabeth is a bit in her cups - unknowingly of course - due to Charlotte’s ministrations due to her headache when mr Darcy comes to propose at Hunsford. Great Jaff

A favorite!

Loved this story. Clever and funny! Everything a P&P variation should be. This will definitely be on my favorites list to enjoy again.
