A sudden and fierce snow storm causes Elizabeth, Jane, and Lydia Bennet, as well as their would-be rescuers, Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley, to take shelter in an empty cabin. Lydia's suggestion to pass the time with games might be just what Bingley needs to prove Jane truly cares for him.
Will Elizabeth's prejudices of Mr. Darcy hold up under the scrutiny of being stranded with him? What changes could possibly come from the effects of "Snow Storms & Kissing Games"?
A Pride & Prejudice novella variation.

I really enjoyed listening to this story. It was a very sweet story showing a different situation for Lizzy to get to know Darcy better. But some of the characters were acting a bit out of character so the narrator had to make them recognisable yet reflect the different tone of the book. I think Lydia was hard because her character was quite different to what we are used to; much more reflective than normal but Sophie Andrews did a good job. Jane was more assertive too. However I think my favourite characterisation was Mr Darcy. For someone who sounds as young as Miss Andrews, she managed to portray his voice with a rhythm and timbre that perfectly reflected his character.
I look forward to more from both the author and the narrator.
Knowing that this was Sophie Andrews' first outing as a narrator and thinking how well she did.
Any short story or novella by Rose Fairbanks. Sweet yet emotional.
The scenes in the cabin, especially the Kissing Game!
I would have loved to have listened to it in one sitting but as I was listening to it whilst driving a one hour each way commute, I had to split it into two sessions.
It's a lovely little story, perfect for snowy days at home or for a commute which allows it to be split into no more than two parts.
Probably if it had a good review
It was alright, wasn't terrible, but not great.
She read fine, but the pace wasn't always right
"Adorable and just right!"
The author was so creative in her story that I found it so believable that our favorite Derbyshire gentleman would do this! The narration added the perfect flair and complimented the story very well. I understand this to be Sophie Andrews first narration and I was very impressed. I believe i will have her narrate my books!
I just wanted to giggle and laugh and even did a few times which earned a few looks from fellow train riders. If they only knew what I was listening to! I was lucky I didn't swoon! It really was great all around. Well done ladies. You showed off each other in the best way possible.
I loved this audiobook!The story and the narration were perfect!Congratulations to Sarah Johnson and Sophie Andrews for the great job they've made!😊😊
Sarah Johnson's prose brought to life by Sophie Andrews.. loved it! what a great treat!
This is the first audiobook I've listened to and I really enjoyed it. The storyline was great! Sophie did a great job narrating.
Cute novella. Wonderfully narrated by Sophie Andrews. Elizabeth was my favourite character to hear. I love these change ups of how Darcy and Elizabeth end up together. Can't wait for more by Sarah Johnson and narrations by Sophie Andrews. Keep up the great work ladies!
"A great twist & a delight to listen to."
This is the first time I have listened to an audible book and enjoyed it very much.
Sophie did the voices perfectly, I found I was able to relax whilst listening.
I loved the story and always enjoy a different take on a great classic.
"Fun story and excellent narrator!"
The narrator was really good, she did a wonderful job.
I would recommend it only to those who enjoy Pride and Prejudice and variations, for it was a fun little story, but might not be everyone's cup of tea.
I thought she gave the story more vitality and made it more "real". When I read that sort of book, the narration in my head is really monotonous and boring. Here, Sophie Andrews brought it to life because she read at just the right pace with just the right intonations.
Overall it was highly enjoyable to listen to, and I look forward to more audiobooks narrated by Sophie Andrews.
" Cute bit of fluff"
I'm generally a fan of p&p re-imaginings, and this wasn't a terrible hour long listen. However, in this short story love is a light switch and the fatal flaws of our favorite characters are reduced to follies. It is a sweet interpretation off p&p as through the eyes of an innocent 14 year old who still plays truth or dare in their friends basement.
As for the performance, it was well paced, but the narrator has a lisp. It didn't bother me over much, and actually it did add too the baby-ish teen naïveté off the plot. If that was intended hats off to the narrator and editor. If not, well just take a listen to the sample and see if the lisp bothers you.
Loved the story. Entertaining and sweet. The narrator had a lisp which took away some of the enjoyment of listening. But I still recommend this book :)
"Great book to sit and listen to."
Great little Pride and Prejudice spin off. Really good funny parts. Great book even for a guy to listen to.
