But, the London season has only begun....

A lovely sweet story, well narrated.
When both Darcy AND Elizabeth were each given an ultimatum that affected their entire futures.
Just about all of it. I've listened to a lot of Regency era audiobooks and heard some real horrors in narration. Emma Lysy did a pretty good job in my opinion.
Darcy, marry by the end of the season or lose your inheritance!
Elizabeth, find a husband by the end of the season or marry Mr. Collins!
This is the first of a series of three books so not everything is resolved by the end. Looking forward very much to the next two. I gather from the author that the second will be coming in the not too distant future.
There's no explicit sex or even very sensual scenes in this book so I can recommend it for all audiences.
The narration is so odd that it is distracting from the story, completely unnatural with some very perculiar pronunciations. I suspect the narrator is not English which, in itself is not a problem, rather the over the top "British" accent she is affecting. I want to enjoy the story and would love to be able to review it properly but I'm finding it impossible.
I have already read the Kindle version of this book and had no hesitation in getting the audible version. I am sorry to say that once again the narration has ruined a good story. The problem is once again the pronunciation. Hairtfordshire instead of Hertfordshire, Awnt instead of Aunt, and many more. This is not the first time audio books have been spoiled for me by incorrect pronunciation. I do hope there is a different narrator if the second book in the series is made into an audio book. Eilizabeth Klett or Pearl Hewitt would have been better narrators.
fast paced ,delightfully romantic and the narrator has a pleasant voice.ill be listening again 5 stars
The performance was terrible: English accent fake, parts of the text was clearly in error in various places and times. The story though good was weak in the end.
