A quick, enjoyable listen, this modern day take of Pride and Prejudice is a wonderful diversion for a rainy morning. The banter between the characters of Darcy and Lizzie is so much fun. Their growing relationship while entertaining Darcy's teenage sister Giana flourishes. While they are from different worlds, they are able to see each other for who they are and not for what their facades were showing. Giana and Lizzie's friendship is sweet and loving, very refreshing to listen to.
Wendy Rich Stetson has a wonderful voice and gives a warm performance for this story. She has a way of giving each character their own personality and makes you want to listen. I enjoy her narrations and always look forward to them.

In this modern Pride and Prejudice variation, a stuffy Darcy insults Lizzy at the local pizza parlor. Every encounter after that only intensifies Lizzy's dislike, until Darcy has a problem with his sister Gianna that only another woman can solve. He reaches out to Lizzy, and she's happy to help. Lizzy gets to see another side of the proud man, and it touches her heart.
I really liked this variation, such a cute plot! I loved watching Lizzy and Darcy take care of Gianna, and Darcy's love for the girl was obvious. I think the author pegged Lizzy as an author perfectly, I can imagine a modern Lizzy hunched over a keyboard creating her own swoon-worthy leading man. I liked the narration, and think this novella is definitely worth checking out.
