Summary

What happens to the happily ever after when the ever after has already happened? A spirited courtship, indeed! Jane Austen's much adored Pride and Prejudice is transfigured in this regency adaptation. That fickle friend Fate intervenes when an unexpected event threatens the happily ever after of literature's favorite love story. 

The gentlemen from Netherfield have left, winter is upon the land, and after a horrifying carriage accident, Elizabeth Bennet finds her spirit transported as if by magic into Mr. Darcy's London home. Paranormally tethered to the disagreeable man, it doesn't help that he believes she is a phantasm of his love-struck mind and not the real Elizabeth.

Somehow, they must learn to trust, learn to love, and learn to bring Elizabeth back to her earthly form before it is too late.

lovely sweet story

one of my fav variations, sweet and funny, a little angst but not too much. the author is really good. Darcy and Lizzy are brought together by fate in a quite unusual way...this happens soon after the Netherfield ball. no Rosings Park, No first proposals, no Lydia's folly. darcy and Lizzy are rhe focus of the story, of how they come to know each other and fall in love. I would have liked a clearer voice of the narrator, I have had some difficulties sometimes with the slurred voice (I am not English mothertongue).

Read the book, before you purchase audio.

I loved the book. The story was enchanting, funny and a very different variation of P&P. Unfortunately the narration of it did not do the book justice. Despite the passable English accent, it was read at break neck speed, so much so I had to reduce the speed of play down to 90% in order to keep up. The characters were made caricatures due to exaggeration. Elizabeth sounded like a simpering damsel instead of the strong, witty and mischievous character portrayed in the book. Darcey comes over as a gruff misery rather than the exasperated fool in love. However, all said the story prevailed. I would have liked to have heard Stevie Zimmerman narrate this one.

My favorite variation

I absolutely love this pride and prejudice variation. Karalynne MacKrory has an incredible imagination and she does an excellent job of creating a wonderful and entertaining story. The only thing I found a little upsetting was that the narrator spoke way too fast.

A Definite Favorite

This story has been emotional, funny, and I've found myself holding my breath in anticipation for what was to happen. I love this story and I highly recommend it! I can't wait to read more from this author.

Very enjoyable

Very different to my normal taste in JAFF. A bit paranormal but I really enjoyed it.

Wonderful to have this story on audio now!

I have reread this stuff so many times I’ve lost count, at least once a year, if not more. The book has just been rereleased and a great bargain. We are so fortunate to have a growing number of really top drawer authors now but when this book was first published that number was smaller, so we have been particularly blessed to enjoy Mackrory’s talents for quite awhile. But her stories seem just as unique now as when they first stood out in the crowd.

I highly recommend Haunting Mr. Darcy, both book and audio. Come, lose yourself in this narrator’s wonderful voice. Bump-ba-bump. Sigh.

Read! Don't listen!

The story itself was cute, but the audio was terrible! I'm not sure if the reader was just unsuitable or if the editing is to blame, but there were long pauses where they didn't make sense and no pauses where there should have been! It pulled me out of the book more than once. It was awful to listen to.

My all time favorite P&P variation

I love the humor and true to cannon character traits. I was a little annoyed by exact quotes spoken by one character in cannon were spoken by other characters, and by Darcy's quick removal to Pemberly, but given the ultimate enjoyment of reading such a fantastic romantic comedy, on the whole there can be no cause to repine.

Hauntingly wonderful!

Brady Smith’s fantastic narration for this audiobook recording of Haunting Mr. Darcy made this beloved story even more lovely. Even though I’ve read the book multiple times, Mr. Smith brought all the dialogue to life. Loved it!

Favorite PPV so far and I have ”read” many!!!

The story is excellent and Brady Smith’s narration of Mr. Darcy is dreamy! Very warm and deep, just what you hope Mr. Darcy would sound like! I wasn’t sure I was going to like this story at first, I thought it sounded like it might be too fanciful, but I was so pleasantly surprised by how romantically captivating it was! Excellent amazing even suspenseful “read”! Couldn’t wait to see what happened next! Well done!!!
