Publisher's Summary

What if Jane Austen's most notorious character, Lady Susan Vernon, paid a special visit to Lady Catherine de Bourgh at her grand estate of Rosings Park? Her arrival inadvertently occurs right after Elizabeth Bennet has rejected Mr. Darcy's botched proposal, and the saddened gentleman catches the eye of London's most infamous flirt. The fun begins as Lady Susan plots to sever Darcy from Elizabeth, and claim him for herself. We all know she can't possibly win his heart, but it is a bit of a giggle to watch her try.

I really liked this book.

Any additional comments?

I really liked this book. I didn't know what to expect since there are loads of book variation on pride and prejudice. So I was pleasantly surprised when I listened to it and found it to be enjoyable and funny at times.

If you want a light read with romance and some comedy then this is for you. I would highly recommend it.

There is no sexual content, bad language or violence. Suitable for all ages.

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Pride and Prejudice wih a bit of comical mayhem

Most of us know how Pride and Prejudice starts and finishes. Some of us may even know the finer details. This variation is true to the over all progress of the story. The larger details are a match for the original as do some of the word choices, etc. But it is the differences that make listening to this book interesting.

Firstly, this book is set entirely in Rosings, when Lizzie visted the recently married Charlotte at the parsonage. There are new characters involved, namely Lady Susan and her daughter Fredericka. There is also an element of comedy with the crossing of wires and information and the ensuing misunderstanding and potential for mayhem. Of course, we know how it ends so we find our characters having to unravel the mess in order to return to the original plot.

It is a fun, light variation to Pride and Prejudice and is overall enjoyable. You can usually count on "All is well that ends well" with Pride and Prejudice variations.
