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.

    "A Weekend with Mr Darcey"
    If you could sum up A Weekend with Mr Darcy in three words, what would they be?

    Brilliant book, very well written and brought to audio. Victora Brazier gave each character a voice and personality. You are drawn into this audio within the first few lines and having the first 3 chapters to introduce the main characters was great. You feel in love with the straight away.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Loved all the characters and soon grew to have my favourites and the audio was so well produced that you soon found the characters you loved to hate.


    Have you listened to any of Victora Brazier’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Have not listed to any other book narrated by Victora Brazier.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Would of loved to of listened to this audio in one sitting. It is one audio book I go back to time and time again.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is well written and brought to life in audio fantastically. Each character has its own voice & personality. You can hear the voices from the characters in your head when you are reading other books in the Austin Addicts series.

    Love how the characters have their own problems to face and how that twist at the beginning really keeps you hooked.

    Can't wait for the rest of the Austin Addict books to come to audio. Highly recommend.

    "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.

    "good story"

    This book offers the listeners a glimpse into the lives of modern Austen fans. It was beautifully read by the narrator. everyone can relate to being stuck in a ' habit relationship ' rather than a Liz/Fitzwilliam true love. Listeners are rooting for happy endings. Characters are charmingly flawed, setting believable. Easy listening.

    A fun romp that keeps you turning pages.. Minor characters are vivid and the setting is almost another character. Good head cold recovery reading.

    Story
    "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.
