Dr Katherine Roberts is a lecturer at Oxford University and an expert on all things Austen. But she has a guilty secret; a love of racy Regency novels by Lorna Warwick. She's even struck up a long-distance friendship with the novelist and the two of them have been sharing their closest confidences. When Katherine gets her yearly invite to a Jane Austen Conference at the magnificent Purley Hall in Hampshire, she sincerely hopes that Lorna will be in attendance as well. She can hardly wait to meet her new friend, but it seems that Lorna may not have been completely honest with her….
Meanwhile, hopeless romantic Robyn Love is at her happiest when her head is stuck in one of Jane Austen's novels - if only her boyfriend Jace Collins could be more like Colin Firth. The weekend retreat is the perfect opportunity for Robyn to escape from reality for a few days - especially when she meets handsome stable hand Dan. But Jace isn't going to be so easy to shrug off.
With misunderstandings, muddles and a few shocking revelations, the weekend proves to be even more than they bargained for. Like all true Jane Austen heroines, Katherine and Robyn will discover that finding their own Mr Darcy is far from easy.

For all romantic readers out there
The narrator was well suited to the story and very easy and believable to listen to. The story was easy to listen to and would be classed as a romance. You wouldn't have to be a huge Jane Austen fan to enjoy it.
I liked the four main characters. You did feel like you got to know them and although you predict they will end up pairing off, you find yourself really wanting them to end up together.
Yes. Really good tone to her voice, represented the characters well and very well suited to the story. I found her one of the most pleasant voices to listen to on an audio book
Not really. I just found it quite easy to follow, good escapism.
