Summary

Dr Katherine Roberts is a lecturer at Oxford University and an expert on all things Austen. But she has a guilty secret; a love of racy Regency novels by Lorna Warwick. She's even struck up a long-distance friendship with the novelist and the two of them have been sharing their closest confidences. When Katherine gets her yearly invite to a Jane Austen Conference at the magnificent Purley Hall in Hampshire, she sincerely hopes that Lorna will be in attendance as well. She can hardly wait to meet her new friend, but it seems that Lorna may not have been completely honest with her….
Meanwhile, hopeless romantic Robyn Love is at her happiest when her head is stuck in one of Jane Austen's novels - if only her boyfriend Jace Collins could be more like Colin Firth. The weekend retreat is the perfect opportunity for Robyn to escape from reality for a few days - especially when she meets handsome stable hand Dan. But Jace isn't going to be so easy to shrug off.
With misunderstandings, muddles and a few shocking revelations, the weekend proves to be even more than they bargained for. Like all true Jane Austen heroines, Katherine and Robyn will discover that finding their own Mr Darcy is far from easy.

Enjoyable mush

I did enjoy this audiobook, at times it was a bit too mushy for my liking. The middle bit was too long and the end could have been developed more especially regarding the character Robin Love.

Fantastic

I was intrigued by this book and was initially hesitant to buy it but I am thoroughly glad I did. The interwoven story with Jane Austen's work was fabulous and the thoughts of the characters in the book invariably matched my own. I often listen to the book whilst walking the dog and would turn a corner whilst laughing out loud and nearly bump into someone. I would definitely recommend this book.

For all romantic readers out there

Where does A Weekend with Mr Darcy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The narrator was well suited to the story and very easy and believable to listen to. The story was easy to listen to and would be classed as a romance. You wouldn't have to be a huge Jane Austen fan to enjoy it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked the four main characters. You did feel like you got to know them and although you predict they will end up pairing off, you find yourself really wanting them to end up together.

What about Victora Brazier’s performance did you like?

Yes. Really good tone to her voice, represented the characters well and very well suited to the story. I found her one of the most pleasant voices to listen to on an audio book

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not really. I just found it quite easy to follow, good escapism.
