Cowardly Witness simmers with secrets and suspense.
Matthew Poe is the only witness in a case of murder and corruption in the lead mining industry. After an attempt is made on his life, he seeks refuge at Pemberley.
Mr. Darcy, bound by honor and duty to his king and country, agrees to take him in, though his presence puts everyone at Pemberley in danger - including Darcy's new bride, Elizabeth.
When Mr. Poe's secret is revealed with disastrous consequences, will Darcy succeed in protecting his loved ones and the witness, or will he be forced to choose between family and honor?
In Cowardly Witness, Ayr Bray masterfully creates a world around Pemberley electrified with the excitement and intrigue of a riveting suspense story.
Really enjoyed this book. I'd been craving a story like this, one that doesn't revolve completely around the Darcy's or the Bennet's but that has new characters that add to their lives. This series delivers. It is sweet and charming and yes a bit too cute at times but I really enjoyed it none-the-less.
The fondness that Ayre Bray has for this classic story is evident which I appreciate. Will definitely continue on with her series.
Stevie Zimmerman did a really lovely job at carrying this story. At first, I thought she was going about it too slowly, but then I realized it worked well for this story.
This is a must read for those that love Jane Austen fanfiction.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
It would seem that a person would need to be a big Jane Austen/Pride and Prejudice fan to enjoy this book, but I really believe that it was written so that unfamiliarity with these characters would not hinder the enjoyment.
What did you like best about this story?
Ayr Bray makes the characters, already familiar to me, very believable, and the plot was intriguing. The narration made it even more enjoyable--just how I would have imagined it in my head!
What about Stevie Zimmerman’s performance did you like?
She was the perfect voice for this audiobook because it fit the period and was very enjoyable to listen to.
