Hello dear friends!  Are you in the Christmas spirit yet?  If not, this enchanting vignette from Joana Starnes’ Miss Darcy’s Companion might just do the trick! 😉  As you may have seen, the lovely Joana Starnes has released a new audiobook of Miss Darcy’s Companion (which was one of my most favorite reads for 2016!)  Woot woot!  Now readers who like to listen to their favorite novels while they drive, clean, or work with their hands can do so with this lovely story about Elizabeth falling in love with Darcy while working as Georgiana’s companion!!

Many thanks, Meredith, for welcoming me here today. You’re so kind, it’s always wonderful to be your guest!

This time my good news is that Miss Darcy’s Companion was released in Audible earlier this month – my fourth book to become available in this format. Stevie Zimmerman is the producer, and as always, her narration style captures your heart and won’t let go, and her Mr Darcy is absolutely to die for! You can listen to the sample here to see what I mean.

I thought this would be the perfect time to celebrate, and if your readers would like to curl up with a paperback over the holidays, or sit back and listen to Stevie Zimmerman bringing the story to life, at the end of this post there’s a link to the international giveaway – a chance to win one of the 2 signed paperbacks, an audio code (10 are up for grabs) or a bag of goodies from our favourite places.
