Publisher's Summary

He is on a mission to propose. But, the universe has other plans….

Fitzwilliam Darcy has found his perfect match in Elizabeth Bennet. Her spirited conversation, their frequent encounters at Rosings Park, and the fire in her eyes when she looks at him encourage Darcy to ask the question burning in his heart.

His words are well-rehearsed, and the moment is perfect...until a Great Dane puppy escapes from the kennel and plants her muddy paws on his brushed breeches, ruining his plans and gaining the attention of the lady he wishes to make Mrs. Darcy.

Elizabeth Bennet is grateful for the interruption. There is nothing Mr. Darcy can say that she would wish to hear. But, when he adopts the rambunctious puppy, she sees a kindness in him that challenges her opinion of the gentleman.

Will Elizabeth's dislike change by the time Darcy can finally propose? Or, will their friends' well-meant interference and a Great Dane pup ruin their chance of finding love?

A Perfectly (Un)timely Proposal is a feel-good, low-angst, sweet regency romantic comedy inspired by Jane Austen's timeless classic, Pride and Prejudice.

Jennifer Joy and Stevie Zimmerman Team Up = Magic

I adore all books by Jennifer Joy. I enjoy all books narrated by Stevie Zimmerman. Put the two together and you get perfection in the form of fiction.

This story was lovely and lively with little angst and an adorably large puppy.

It was sweet and delightful to see how the untimely interruption of the puppy led to Darcy's better understanding and the time he took to make amends for his wrongs.

good fun!

Not my favorite but still was lovely and enjoyable. As always Ms. Zimmerman was impressive and irreplacable!

not sure if worth the credit

Everything in this variation keeps you wanting more. Nothing different in this version except a dog. The dog really doesn't do anything to make you interested.

Quite Charming

Loved it. This tale is quite charming. Miss Ruby is delightful and really helped Darcy show his brilliant qualities to a reluctantly prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet. Ruby truly helped him charm Elizabeth and change her mind and heart.

Steve Zimmerman is brilliant once again.

Love this one

I just finished the audio version of this book and loved it. Stevie Zimmerman is probably my favorite Regency era narrator and she does a great job with this book. I enjoyed the story for a second time around and was happy to be able to both read it and listen to it. The story leaves me feeling contented with Darcy and Elizabeth and with the desire to sigh... Below is my review after reading the book.
*****
I'd just read a run of contemporary romance and was quite ready to get back to regency England so when this ARC opportunity came up I was thrilled to read it. It was exactly all that the description claimed to be and exactly what my Darcy loving heart needed; feel-good, low-angst, sweet Regency romantic comedy. I loved that so much of the book comes from Darcy's point of view. Ah, Darcy. He is so dense and in this retelling we get to know all the inner workings of his dense-ness. Good thing he has friends, and an adorable puppy.
I stayed up well into the night to finish the book in one go. I was sorry when it ended and wished I had another lined up right behind it to start. But alas, I've already read all of Ms. Joy's P&P retellings, some more than once. This one might need that second reading....

No sex, language or violence
