Publisher's Summary

When his freedom means the loss of hers...can anyone win?

Fitzwilliam Darcy has avoided the entrapments of dozens of desperate maidens seeking a wealthy husband...until the Netherfield Ball. He could lose himself in her fine eyes, but there's just one problem: She doesn't want him.

Elizabeth Bennet seeks a brief respite from the crowded ballroom only to find herself wrapped in the arms of the one man she despises - Mr. Darcy.

When Darcy's enemy is shot to death, he must choose between Elizabeth's freedom and his own honor. To complicate matters further, Elizabeth is not one to stand idly by when her future is on the line. With a killer on the loose, can she help Darcy reveal the truth before he's accused of a crime she knows he didn't commit? Or will she become the next victim?

The Honorable Mr. Darcy is the first novel in Jennifer Joy's A Meryton Mystery romance series set in England's captivating Regency era - when a gentleman's manners were regarded as highly as a lady's reputation and a happy marriage was the ultimate prize (although a fortune was never frowned upon).

If you like falling in love with Mr. Darcy and Miss Elizabeth as they fall for each other, then you'll love this sweet romance-mystery variation of Jane Austen's timeless classic, Pride and Prejudice.

Listen to The Honorable Mr. Darcy to satisfy your craving for a fast-paced mystery interwoven with a heartwarming, wholesome romance today!

    "Great narrator ...Okay story"
    Any additional comments?

    The book was a good story of misunderstandings leading to major issues. It was a heartwarming romance but I really didn’t see a lot of mystery. I have never read Pride & Prejudice and most likely never will it is just not something that interests me which I believe this story is based on or around. It has a good plot but it is drawn out a little too much for me and I found my mind wondering having to really think about what I just listened to as to make sure I got the full impact. I have read others in this time period that really pulled me in with a lot of action, mystery etc this one just didn’t do it. I did like how Darcy protects Elizabeth even though he wanted her for his self but wanted it to be a match she wants not one she is forced into. All in all it was an okay read I give it a 3.5 bring it up to a 4. Some area where just too long to really grab and keep my attention.

    Ms. Peterson did a wonderful job on narration her tones were smooth and her voice is very rich. I really like her character voices both male and female were full of emotion you always know what the other is feeling. You are never left guessing who as to who is saying what, it was very easy to tell who each character was. She got the bratty sister down so well that she got on my nerves which I am sure was what she was suppose to do. If any breaks were taken you could not tell, the volume stayed even throughout the whole audio. This was a very rich, clean and clean audio with a much enjoyable voice that does not get tiring to listen to. There isn’t any background noise it was a very clear audio from start to finish. Ms. Peterson has a very easy voice to listen to. I haven’t listened to anything by her and look forward to listening to more of her work.

    The author gives you a few twist and turns to make the story more interesting. Darcy is accused of shooting Mr. Wickham. There is only one person who can prove he wasn’t anywhere near that tent at that hour but to do so they would have to get married. The author tells a story of what to do, tell or not tell. The story is based on trust, honor and misunderstanding.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes

    Any additional comments?

    This was a very fun audiobook and the narrator did a great job with differciating between the voices.
    I have read the original pride and prejudice countless time, I have watched all the different movies made from it. I have also read a few books that were loosely based on it but they have all been contemporary. This was my first time reading something like this book. It was exactly what the title says, a variation of the original story. It has the same cast of characters and the story starts from the ball in the Bingley's house with everything exactly happening the same upto that point.
    The mystery was great and it kept me guessing up until the very end. The pace was slow a bit the middle, if I'd been reading I probably would have skipped a little bit but the audio was entertaining and I truly enjoyed this book and the writing.
    I would definitely read the next installment in the series when it comes out.

    "Great Who-done-it"
    What did you love best about The Honorable Mr. Darcy?

    I have always enjoyed the "what-ifs" and this book really filed that. The characters of Darcy and Elizabeth were pretty true to their roots.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    LIzzy was my fave. she was just as headstrong as in the original novel.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I'd rather not answer this due to spoilers for other readers.


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

    I did, but due to pesky adulting duties i could not.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the narrator. She didn't ruin the book as so many others do.

    "Elizabeth is the Bomb"
    If you could sum up The Honorable Mr. Darcy in three words, what would they be?

    Can`t believe how much I`m enjoying all these P&P books, the narrative is just fantastic and I think I would so be Elizabeth's friend if I had lived in her time. She is funny, smart and so very witty.
    Really enjoyable audiobook, highly recommend.

    Elizabeth, the female lead, is looking forward to dancing with Wickham and the ball but events quickly take a deadly turn.

    The story line was filled with secrets and engaging characters.

    This book was an intriguing murder mystery with a side of romance which made it an overall Good Read.


    Nancy Peterson did really well with the narration as usual.

    "A Mr. Darcy Who Done It"
    Any additional comments?

    Definitely a different take on the Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth story. Wickham is dead and Darcy is at the top of the suspect list because he’s so disliked. Fortunately he has an ally in Elizabeth. This is unexpected by Darcy since it's at a time when she clearly dislikes him. The romantic tension between the two is there, and everyone’s personalities follow the original story, but most everything else is a noticeable departure. I think that’s what makes this so different and interesting.The author, Jennifer Joy, does a great job at keeping you guessing about the true murdered, and in the end it's quite the surprise. If you’re looking for something different in the romance genre this is a great option, especially if you're a P&P fan.

    I received this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

    "What a delightful story to stumble upon!"

    What a delightful story to stumble upon! If you love regency books with a good clean storyline, then this is a story for you. This book starts out with all the characters we know and love from the original Pride and Prejudices book. With this book, we get to go on a new adventure of murder and mystery. What if one of the original characters is murdered? How would that change the story? There are a few parts that drag on a bit, and I found myself getting a little bored, but then something exciting would happen and draw me back in. I'm so glad I came across Nancy Petersen's book. I will definitely be listening to more of her books!

    "Fantastic Pride & Prejudice variation...bravo"

    I truly enjoyed this mystery variation of P&P, it was intriguing and exciting and full of angst; which any P&P variation should encompass. The only complaint is I would have loved to see more courtship of Elizabeth by Darcy.
    I can't wait to listen to/read Book 2.

    Pride and Prejudice mashed up with a murder mystery! The narrator was terrific. I especially loved her Mrs Bennett.
