Publisher's Summary

A pun-filled tale featuring Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice characters with some added or addled, missing or missish, modified or mortified, healthier, wealthier, or wiser.
Impeccable comportment is mandatory in Regency England, a society governed by strict rules of conduct. The immaculate image of perfectionist Fitzwilliam Darcy is somewhat tarnished when he and his traveling companions arrive, hot and sweaty, at Pemberley and decide to take a fateful plunge into a scummy pond. An embarrassing encounter on the estate's lawn leaves a long-lasting impression on Jane and Elizabeth Bennet, who are new acquaintances of Georgiana and Anna Darcy.
With both families in London for the Little Season, Darcy finds himself thrown again into the path of perky Elizabeth Bennet, but a handsome army officer just might blockade further advances.
This romantic comedy is a lighthearted adaptation of Austen's Pride and Prejudice, featuring a softer, sweeter, sillier side of Austen's beloved characters.

Trying to be tooooooo clever by half

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This was trying too hard to be clever. Unfortunately there can be no comparing Ms Croft to Jane Austen.

Would you ever listen to anything by J. Marie Croft again?


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mary F. Dominiak?

I don't believe there is anyone who could make this palatable.

What character would you cut from Mr. Darcy Takes the Plunge?

Darcy's second sister?..
