Publisher's Summary

Jane Austen's beloved characters return in this novella, a contemporary variation on Pride and Prejudice, one of the most popular novels in English literature. Doctor Lizzie Bennet, struggling against her conservative English countryside upbringing, determines to prove her worth as a dog psychologist. Nothing will deter her from her career until she meets the uppity and oh-so mysterious Londoner, Mister Darcy. His on-again, off-again flirtatious manner, and his pompous putdowns challenge Lizzie's short temper.
When Mister Darcy hires her to train his lovable basset hounds for an important foxhunt, Lizzie accepts the task despite knowing next to nothing about the sport and harboring an intense fear of horses. Two of the villains Austen fans love to boo and hiss arrive to torment Lizzie: Caroline Bingley, in hot pursuit of Mister Darcy does all she can to discredit and humiliate Lizzie. Mister Darcy's old nemesis, George Wickham, stalks the Bennet family. Will Lizzie keep her focus or succumb to her fate? And what, pray tell, is her fate? Book One in the Mister Darcy series by Barbara Silkstone

A fun romp through the English countryside

Would you listen to Mister Darcy's Dog again? Why?

Yes, it's extremely witty and enjoyable. The narrator had an excellent voice which was perfect for the story.

What other book might you compare Mister Darcy's Dog to and why?

It's pretty incomparable in my experience, sort of like the illegitimate offspring of Jane Austen and Monty Python.

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

She is the perfect person to narrate this story. Her upper crust British accent and dry delivery made this story very amusing.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed out loud several times while listening to this story. The escapades of Lizzie's younger sisters were especially funny.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this story. I've just downloaded the kindle version of Mister Darcy's Christmas, in order to continue to read about these characters. I will be hearing Karen Krause's voice in my head, as I read it.
