in consequence of the missive, Lizzy delights in anything ridiculous…, penned by Robbin
for bringing them out. It is my impression that in that way, too, Lizzy is "caught" because the subject relates to Darcy/Pemberley. Though, in that case it is Caroline's obvious flattery of Darcy's home that catches Lizzy's interest. And being of a rather fun-loving, curious nature, perhaps she does want to see how far Caroline will go. But would she be so interested if Caroline, or another lady, were flattering a different man in such a manner?
Whatever the reason for Lizzy being "caught", I humbly believe it all comes back to Darcy. While I do believe Lizzy may be generally curious about discussions of unfamiliar people/places, I'm not sure such talk would cause her to put her book down and place herself in a better position to listen. I feel JA could already be trying to insinuate her, Lizzy's, budding interest in Darcy himself. And I do mean interest, not love.
