Summary

Kelsey Edmundson is a geek and proud of it. She makes no secret of her love for TV, movies, and, most especially, books. After a bad breakup, she retreats into her favorite novel, Pride and Prejudice, wishing she had some of the wit and spirit of Elizabeth Bennett.

One night at a party Kelsey meets handsome Australian bartender Mark Barnes. From then on, she always seems to run into him when she least expects it. No matter how Kelsey tries, she always seems to say the wrong thing.

After a particularly gaffe-filled evening around Mark, Kelsey is in desperate need of inspiration from Jane Austen. She falls asleep reading Darcy’s letter to Lizzy and awakens to find herself in an unfamiliar place that looks and sounds suspiciously like her favorite book. Has she somehow been transported into Pride and Prejudice, or is it just a dream?

As Kelsey tries to discover what’s happening to her, she must also discover her own heart. Is Mark Barnes destined to be her Mr. Darcy? In the end, she must decide whether attempting to become Elizabeth is worth the risk or if being Kelsey Edmundson is enough.

What a great book!

This book turns Pride & Prejudice on its ear in the most fabulous way! The story is engaging, the characters well-rounded, and the reader truly brings it to life.

really cute and enjoyable

I enjoyed the journey of this story between the real world and the fictional one. I wanted there to be an epilogue, but overall very satisfied. I would recommend this book.

Is this a Joke? Narrator was an insult to my ears.

I've listened to hundreds of audio books and this, by far, is the worst narrated book I have ever experienced. Some phrases sounded like a a robot, and some I'm just perplexed at the syntax. Either way this audio version is an absolute insult to my ears and makes me very irritated that it was even produced and put out there to be downloaded. I'm sorry that the time limit for returning this has passed. If there is anyway I can help others avoid this travesty of an audio book then it is worth the time it's taking me to write this.
This may be a decent book. The story seems cute and I usually love all types of Austen inspired modern retelling but I'll have to read the print version to know that.
