Publisher's Summary

What happens when Jane Austen's immortal characters are thrust into 21st-century Pennsylvania, with an all-male twist?
Liam Bennet has always been a good judge of character, but when William Darcy is thrown into his social circle, everything spins out of control. Darcy is proud, cold, arrogant - and strangely captivating. When Liam's brother and Darcy's business partner start seeing each other, Liam cannot avoid this enigmatic businessman. But does he want to?
As Liam struggles to find his identity in college and acknowledge his feelings, he must deal with the fortunes of his four brothers, his gossiping mother, and the possibility of a large inheritance that could save his family from financial ruin. Emotions come to a boil when George Wickham, a world-weary musician, stumbles into town and ignites a feud with Darcy. He threatens to expose a long-hidden past, and Liam must decide for himself who William Darcy really is and what he really wants.

I loved the portrayal of Darcy in this story. Darcy is such an iconic character and this Darcy lives up the expectations.

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

Rusty gives the characters unique tones that shows the region of the story.

Any additional comments?

Only a few times did I find that the different voices of the characters slightly overlapped when moving back and forth in a conversation. Mostly this occurred when going from a male to female character.

I was skeptical of this when I saw the original ebook listing but it got good reviews so when given the opportunity to take a listen to the audiobook I thought I’d give it a try.

I can’t rate it because I didn’t finish it. I was just overwhelmed by the dry, stilted manner in which the story proceeds. It worked for Jane Austen – in 1813, but it didn’t work for me in modern times.

I needed a hook and I didn’t get one that convinced me to keep going.

Rusty Topsfield was a fine narrator. He tried to give voices to the different characters but didn’t do enough to make me stay with the story.
