Publisher's Summary

How could one simple decision change the course of a man's life? In this fast-paced novella set in Regency England, Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy of Pemberley in Derbyshire and Darcy House in London finds himself unwillingly, or possibly willingly, attached to Miss Elizabeth Bennet. With visions of their life ahead, he presses forward until everyone in her family and his are finally convinced they are a match made in heaven. Or, are they? Based on Jane Austen's classic novel, Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Darcy's arrogance and pride seem to be a constant source of bitter frustration to his betrothed. He is surprised to find these less-than-sterling qualities trip himself up a time or two...or three, as well. With his pride and her prejudice, will Darcy and Elizabeth ever get the happily-ever-after they desire? Enjoy Mr. Darcy's point-of-view as he tells a tale that might take you by surprise. It sure did him. Mr. Darcy's Bad Day is appropriate for all listeners.

Delightfully Funny Novella!

Mr. Darcy is walking the grounds between Netherfield Park and Longbourn, hoping to find the peace Lizzy seems to get from her daily walks. Therefore, he determines it's all Lizzy's fault when he falls into a puddle and injures his ankle. Lizzy discovers him and takes him home to Longbourn to recover. When circumstances find them compromised, Darcy needs to convince his charming Lizzy to overlook his behavior during the last few weeks and give him a chance.

This is a sweet clean novella told from Darcy's point of view. It was such a treat, it was so funny I had a smile on my face for almost the whole story! There isn't room for angst, just plenty of adorable scenes with the couple. If you want to spend more time in Hertfordshire and enjoy some delightful moments with Darcy, this is the book for you.

Stevie Zimmerman is her usual wonderful self. Her narration just brings Darcy to life, she performs male voices so well. She makes listening effortless. If you're worried about trying a new author, Christie Capps is a pen name for J. Dawn King, the author of some of the very best Pride and Prejudice variations. This little trip to Hertfordshire is well worth it.
