Any additional comments?
This was a very fun audiobook and the narrator did a great job with differciating between the voices.
I have read the original pride and prejudice countless time, I have watched all the different movies made from it. I have also read a few books that were loosely based on it but they have all been contemporary. This was my first time reading something like this book. It was exactly what the title says, a variation of the original story. It has the same cast of characters and the story starts from the ball in the Bingley's house with everything exactly happening the same upto that point.
The mystery was great and it kept me guessing up until the very end. The pace was slow a bit the middle, if I'd been reading I probably would have skipped a little bit but the audio was entertaining and I truly enjoyed this book and the writing.
I would definitely read the next installment in the series when it comes out.

The book was a good story of misunderstandings leading to major issues. It was a heartwarming romance but I really didn’t see a lot of mystery. I have never read Pride & Prejudice and most likely never will it is just not something that interests me which I believe this story is based on or around. It has a good plot but it is drawn out a little too much for me and I found my mind wondering having to really think about what I just listened to as to make sure I got the full impact. I have read others in this time period that really pulled me in with a lot of action, mystery etc this one just didn’t do it. I did like how Darcy protects Elizabeth even though he wanted her for his self but wanted it to be a match she wants not one she is forced into. All in all it was an okay read I give it a 3.5 bring it up to a 4. Some area where just too long to really grab and keep my attention.
Ms. Peterson did a wonderful job on narration her tones were smooth and her voice is very rich. I really like her character voices both male and female were full of emotion you always know what the other is feeling. You are never left guessing who as to who is saying what, it was very easy to tell who each character was. She got the bratty sister down so well that she got on my nerves which I am sure was what she was suppose to do. If any breaks were taken you could not tell, the volume stayed even throughout the whole audio. This was a very rich, clean and clean audio with a much enjoyable voice that does not get tiring to listen to. There isn’t any background noise it was a very clear audio from start to finish. Ms. Peterson has a very easy voice to listen to. I haven’t listened to anything by her and look forward to listening to more of her work.
The author gives you a few twist and turns to make the story more interesting. Darcy is accused of shooting Mr. Wickham. There is only one person who can prove he wasn’t anywhere near that tent at that hour but to do so they would have to get married. The author tells a story of what to do, tell or not tell. The story is based on trust, honor and misunderstanding.
