Description

Location scout and Jane Austen aficionado Kate Sharp is thrilled when the company she works for lands the job of finding locations for a new film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, but then her boss, Kevin, fails to return from a scouting trip to England. Kate travels to England to salvage Kevin's and the company's reputation before word gets out that he is missing.

Things go from bad to worse when Kate arrives in Nether Woodsmoor, a quaint village of golden stone cottages and rolling green hills, only to find no trace of Kevin except his abandoned luggage. Even the rumpled, easygoing local scout they consulted, Alex, doesn't know where Kevin might be.

Increasingly worried about Kevin and with an antsy director waiting for updates about the preproduction details, Kate embarks on a search that includes a pub-crawl and cozy cottages as well as stately country manors. But Kevin remains missing, and she begins to suspect that the picturesque village and beautiful countryside may not be as idyllic as they seem.

A delightful new series for me

I have just read the first book in this series and enjoyed it very much. Interesting settings and characters. The author seems very knowledgeable about her topics. The narrator is quite good. It is amazing what a difference the narrator can make in the enjoyment of a book. I tried the On The Run series by this same author and needed to return it because I could not get into it due to the narration. May revisit if this series continues to be as good as the 1920’s series by this same author.

An Amazing Series

When I saw this title I will be honest it was the dog on the cover that made me download it as well as the association with P and P. But I was really blown away by the story and thrilled to discover that it wasn't a stand alone book but a series. The characters of Kate and Alex really click and the details of the story and descriptions of the country side and homes really make you feel like you're there. I highly recommend it. I also really enjoyed the narrator. Sometimes narrations can be like molasses but Sarah Mollo-Christensen makes listening a pleasure.

Light enjoyable read

Usually require a more complex plot but this kept me listening. Who can find fault when Jane Austin is part of the mix. Besides, I need a break from Lee Childs, etc.

Boring

With references to Pride and Prej you'd think there would be some charm and romance ... Nope. With references to murder, youd expect some suspense and drama ... Nope. Such a dull story read by a dull narrator. The "love story" was stupid and there was no character that I cared anything about. I was glad when the book was over.

quick read but narrator was killing me

struggled to finish but I had it on faster speed and finished it quick in 1 day. The narrator's voice I actually thought it was a automated reading like Siri reading it at the beginning then her voice finally was not monotone when it was other character voices. The story was quite predictable. Ok book if you're trying to kill time. Not one I would recommend

A little crime, a little romance

Minimal violence (although there’s a murder), platonic romantic tension, some classic English characters and countryside and culture. Not great, but easy and pleasing.

Not bad,but won't be continuing the series.

Certainly nothing wrong with this story, the narrator, or the characters, but there was nothing gripping or page-turning about it either. It was a relatively easy listen - not difficult to keep track of the characters or relationships, some nice imagery, and nothing overly grisly or traumatic, nor did I find myself drifting or struggle to finish it. Admittedly, I expected a bit more (although I can't say with certainty why), and had hoped it would be the first book in a series I'd want to continue, but I need a bit more.

Sorry, but pretty dull...

The story was interesting enough, but I really did not care for the narrator, and her style unfortunately kept my attention right through to “the end.” As to the characters, I really found myself not particularly caring about any of them. The harsh style of the chief detective at the beginning was just comical (in a sad way). I may try another in the series, but have pretty low expectations after this one.

why spend first chapter being trite

note to author: don't make us sit through a chapter of "woe is me I'm not married" before the story gets started!
