Adorable variation!

This is book 2 of the Witches of Longbourn series, it picks right up where book 1 left off and you'll need to read the first one to understand the events of this book. Lizzy has been spirited off, and she wakes up wanting answers. Unfortunately, her captor only has bad news for her, and Lizzy gets even worse news from Longbourn about Lydia.

I like how this book weaves the events of the original book in new ways! Lizzy ends up at Pemberley and has a tour of the house, but it's not how we expect. Lizzy's feelings towards Darcy are gradually changing as she witnesses his goodness. And Lizzy gives some hilarious lessons about men to the little love witch. It was a very sweet story.

The narration was well done, as always, with a performance that brought me right into the story. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Absolutely Charming!

I received this book for free. I am voluntarily posting this review and all opinions expressed herein are my own.

This is the second book in the Witches of Longbourn series. It is not a standalone and ends on the cliffhanger. You really need to start with the first book in the series to truly enjoy the twist on P&P theme.

How charming! Here, the second book picks up not long after the cliffhanger of the first book ended. This story deals mostly with the issues of Lydia and Wickham and Lizzie awakening to her feelings about Darcy. In addition, Darcy's mother is a very powerful witch who has cursed Lizzie. This is a light easy breezy twist on P&P. Really enjoyable.

The narrator, Jannie Meisberger, did a great job and handled the humor/lightness of the series wonderfully. She has a very pleasant voice to listen to, with a slight British accent. She is the same narrator throughout the series.

Learning to Love without Magic

Barbara begins this book with a 'What!' Lizzie is kidnapped by Mr. Darcy? And of course, Lizzie believes he has nefarious intentions. Why else? In searching for the man, she finds him in the woods of Pemberley with, of all people, Caroline Bingley. Oh, my. Why does Darcy kidnap her? His mother's curse. Then we meet up with Fiona Feelgood again. She wants Lizzy to teach her how to love someone without putting a spell on them. As for the curse....Who is cursed? Has the curse been lifted or not? I'm not telling. Barbara's wit and humor is seasoned with just the right amount of angst for a great story. But it is not over yet.

I was so happy to see that Jannie Meisberger continues to narrate for Barbara. Her accent brings the characters and story to life. A wonderful story to listen to.

I received this audiobook as a gift from the author.

Entertaining, Engaging, Fun!

What does Jannie Meisberger bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Jannie brings her vivid imagination to bear in all the characters in this precious story. It's easy to get lost in the story she weaves

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

I listened to it all in one session - captivating!

Too much fun!

Disclaimer: I am totally addicted to Barbara Silkstone's books!
Not many authors can snark so well or have the reader groaning quite so loudly over the gawdawful puns! The situations and plot twists are both diabolical and ingenious. Just like her way of producing several short interconnected books that leave you wanting more instead of groaning over the 700 page wonders.
In this episode, Lizzy nearly reaps the effects of declining Darcy, sees Caroline become a mud turtle, is tasked with teaching the love witch how to be loveable, worries over two of her sisters, speaks with Darcy's mother in a painting, and is commanded to be mistress of the prince regent!
I still don't see how Jannie Meisberger can do such a remarkable narration without ROFL.

Well, this a funny explanation why Darcy is all wet.

I like the new secondary characters & as I have said in my previous review's I like the addition of magic. The narrator, Jannie Meisberger is wonderful. I swear with each of these books, she starts to sound more and more like Dame Julie Andrews.

I will not give any spoilers away, but it is a lovely follow up and I can't wait for the wedding in book 3. Please give a listen, parts of the book really are better on Audible.
