Publisher's 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.
