    I've always liked the idea of a seuel for Lizzie and Darcy; the original Pride and Prejudice story almost demands further exploration than the simple happy ending that Jane Austen leaves us with I was also pleased to find that this was not another bodice ripping romance seual of Lizzie and Darcy like others I have read and been disappointed with I thought that Bebris did a very good job in keeping the characters of Lizzie and Darcy intact; everything they do and say in the novel is fairly on par with what I felt Austen herself may have written about the couple Bebris' language was perhaps slightly too descriptive; it is the type of descriptiveness and attention to ordinary everyday items that you find in a regular 'historical novel' which is perfectly fine but not uite the style of Austen's writing However that is a very minor annoyance My main grievance was the whole supernatural story line Perhaps the hint of supernatural elements or mysterious happenings would have been acceptable but I felt that the use of real enchanted rings and amulets and magic took the characters too far from their original setting and made the whole story not feel a bit unlikely That said I did enjoy the novel overall in particular the character's accuracy to their original counterparts

    I have read a later book of the Mr Mrs Darcy series and really liked it So I decided to read all the books of the series in seuence The first one Pride and Prescience is set immediately after the marriage of Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam The Bingleys are also newly married in a double ceremony But there is also a third wedding that takes place soon that of Caroline Bingley to an American called ParrishSoon after the wedding Caroline starts to behave strangely and both the Darcys and the Bingleys decide to postpone the start of their married lives to help her out The rivalry between Parrish and the Kendall family spices things up while Professor Randolph an archaeologist cum mystic also tags along What ails Caroline? Who is out to harm the Bingleys? And then a murder takes placeAs far as the characters are concerned I found that Bebris managed to keep them mostly believable The Austen feel was strong and I liked the portrayal Elizabeth and Darcy's relationship However the plot left a lot to be desired It all centred around supernatural mumbo jumbo and somehow appeared far removed from the earthly and satirical atmosphere of the original Austen novels In fact I feel Austen would have made fun of this bookThe book drags endlessly and I kept waiting for something to happen as I wasn't really too interested in Caroline's problems Something did happen but I had to wait for 75% of the book for it I felt some of the scenes were repetitive especially with respect to Caroline Less than halfway through the book I guessed at the culprit It simply couldn't have been anyone elseAnd finally it is shocking that Caroline married a stranger unknown to any of the English society families Even shocking that her brother didn't even bother to check up on prospective grooms This seems to be a massive oversight on the part of the author Austen families were over cautious in their choice of a spouse for their wards This bit rang a bit untrue to meI think the rest of the series should be better but I can't be bothered recommending this one to anyone When I am promised a mystery I want a mystery not some supernatural solution that isn't even scary or interesting

    Since first reading Pride and Prejudice many years ago I've always had a vague hankering to read a good continuation But the operative word here is good I've skimmed many a seuel in a Barnes Noble only to be horrified by awful writing and ridiculous characterizationAnyway I enjoyed the first chapter of this one when I read it online so I decided to commit to the whole book Unfortunately the first chapter was by far the bestOverall the writing was tolerable but not handsome enough to tempt me There were a bunch of words and phrases that didn't seem true to the period like when Elizabeth tells Darcy You must admit it's a really shiny stick A really shiny stick? Are we in Regency England or Buffy the Vampire Slayer?Some of the characterization was uestionable also Caroline Bingley is a major character in this book and she was unrecognizable But the worst the worst the absolute worst thing was the plot Everything just seemed so implausible The resolution of the mystery was a joke view spoilerHello You can't explain the crazy things that have been happening by asserting that voodoo magic is real and that's caused everything hide spoiler

    I'd like to give this book 5 stars because much of it is delightful The whole idea of following Elizabeth and Darcy through their marriage and into their new life together was a joy The way the story of their new life unfolded into a mystery was beautifully executed So often the event that begins the mystery is abrupt shocking out of proportion with what has come before And sometime this is very effective But having spent many hours in Jane Austen's version of this world it would not have been in this case and the author did not make that mistakeShe is however a very good example of just how brilliant Georgette Heyer is Was No is Her work still lives and will foreverGeorgette Heyer managed to write books in the Regency period using Regency slang and Regency idioms and yet never becoming obscure or prescious Bebris uses modern slang unconsciously throughout the book I figured all right inside information sure is you're sure right now There's hardly a page in the book without a glaring example One of the delights of good historical fiction is to sink oneself in the period and this includes the language To use modern phraseology seems well lazy on the part of the writer But that wouldn't lose the book two whole stars That was just a disappointment The relationship between all the various characters is true to the source The relationship between Elizabeth and Darcy after they are married is a delightNo the problem with the book is where the author takes it at the ending I've already indicated that this review contains spoilers but let me reiterate I'm now going to spoil the ending of the book Read no further unless you don't careElizabeth Darcy is one of the most clever and witty women in literature But in this book she doesn't solve the mystery because she is smart She solves the mystery because she is psychic Yup We discover at the end that Elizabeth Darcy has the Gift and I gather that is going to fuel the subseuent novels in the series probababy right into the Darcys' old ageWhy does Elizabeth Darcy Jane Austen's Elizabeth Darcy need to be psychic to figure out a puzzle?The puzzle was what is wrong with Caroline Bingley whose behavior after her marriage goes from odd to demonstrably insane So wouldn't the first guess be it's probably something about her marriage? Even Mr Collins ought to be able to get that far The uncanny power that Caroline's husband turns out to possess over her is because of an enchanted ring And there we are right out of the bounds of Regency story telling The ring's power is abated at the touch of Elizabeth; she intuits that it is an item of power and thus solves the crime Well no the crime is solved as is traditional in British mysteries with the bad guy's confessionAnd the fact is if someone seemed to have an uncanny power over another in Regency England sorcery is NOT the first thing anyone would think of This is after all the Age of Enlightenment and educated men and these are all educated men scorned such superstitions And at this time Dr Mesmer was the talk of Europe Dr Mesmer's techniues were used in an attempt to cure King George III of his madness Demonstrations of Mesmerism were seen in every capitol and every knowledgable person would have heard of him And yet no one brings it up in this story Which means the author never heard of him Which means the author's research seems to have been let us say less than optimal for the writing of this book She does mention the War of 1812 as a reason why the American is stuck in England but doesn't carry that further; one of the characters is corresponding with someone in the United States throughout the story And who would be carrying these letters? The Redcoats on their way to attack New Orleans?The lack of research was a disappointment But stepping off into the world of fantasy giving Elizabeth Darcy whose character is firmly set by her creator a significant power not in the original well that took the book out of the delightful category and into the Huh what the heck?And here's the thing A psychic power in storytelling is an external plot point An external plot point is an event that is completely in the control of the writer that comes and goes at any point Captain The Dilithium Crystals are melting No wait they're fine The child is dying No he's better Oh wait he's dead Nope he's up again An internal plot point events driven by previous events or by character behavior are much satisfying A Deus ex machina after all is an external plot point at the climax of a story Most annoyingAn example of an internal plot point would be Darcy writing Elizabeth a long letter to explain their misunderstandings and reveal his family history and then not staying around while she reads it An internal plot point would be Elizabeth's friend choosing to marry Mr Collins because she doesn't want to be an old maid or Lydia running off with Wickham because she is a flibbertigibbetGiving Elizabeth Darcy psychic powers just means the Dilithium Crystals will always be there to help her solve the problem And isn't that lazy storytelling as well?

    The first in the series of mysteries with Mr Mrs Darcy and other beloved Austen characters This story follows up on Pride and Prejudice At the double wedding of Elizabeth and Darcy and Jane and Bingley Caroline Bingley announces her engagement to a charming American and their wedding is the sensation of the season in London When Caroline starts acting very strangely beginning on her wedding night the Darcys investigate It's fun reading for Austen fans and or mystery fans You don't necessarily need to be thoroughly familiar with Pride and Prejudice to enjoy it

  6. CJ says:

    Have I mentioned how much I love Pride and Prejudice? I do without apology My daughter and I sit down to watch the BBC version at least every other month I've seen all the movies Matthew McFadden is my favorite Darcy Naturally I would gravitate towards anything even remotely related to the story except those stupid zombie ones a girl has to have some standardsI liked this book Yes it was silly and didn't uite get the feel of the time period but Bebris put on a good show The story begins only days after the double wedding Caroline Bingley has announced her engagement to an American at the reception What follows is a mystery with a supernatural flair I loved the interaction between the Darcys but felt what went on between Jane and Bingley fell a little flat I could not find any sympathy for Caroline Bingley at all She's just too awful a character to garner any delicate feelingsIt was a fun read I think I'll be picking up Bebris' other Mr Mrs Darcy mysteries in the near future

  7. Leslie says:

    I must admit to having achieved the mid century mark without having read Pride and Prejudice; this book may compel me to correct that failing Further I have never seen any of the movies made from the book I truly enjoyed Pride and Prescience and I plan to read of the series It was great fun even for a Pride and Prejudice newbie

  8. ❂ Murder by Death says:

    I had put off reading these for ages because I normally don't like a new author taking a beloved set of characters from the classics and 'extending' their stories But this was recently recommended to me by a GR friend who felt that the author did a credible job with the characters I must say I agree I love the original Pride and Prejudice and was relieved to find that Ms Bebris did a fantastic job of respecting Ms Austen and the characters themselvesThe mystery itself was clever I don't often vacillate between suspects but reading this I at once knew who the culprit was only to change my mind several times in the course of just a few chapters In the end ultimately the villain is not a shocker but I have to say I just wasn't sure until the denouement There was also a paranormal element to all of it that I hadn't expected and enjoyed uite a bitA fabulous read I'm happy to say I discovered when there are a whole raft of additional books in the series just waiting to be bought and read I look forward to being happily entertained by one of my favorite all time fictional couples for uite a while to come

    This is a great books for Jane Austen fans Although not strictly a cozy by today's formula it does feature a mystery with Elizabeth now Mrs Darcy trying to figure out is behind it It eventually features a murder about page 225 but the murder does tie into all the mysterious accidents that have been occurring throughout the book The characters are delightful very much the beloved Jane Austen characters we already know The settings are old English estates with the staircases and drawing rooms and vast parks for walking paths About 23 of the way through I began to suspect who the perpetrator is but it's not completely obvious A little sluggish reading than most cozies because of the Austen era resemblance but easier English to read Good book and I will continue this series

  10. Lollyletsgo says:

    It was really of a 35 while I enjoyed the blissful afterglow of Darcy Elizabeth's and for that matter Bingley and Jane's nuptials the introduction of voodoo esue touches left me feeling meh The mystery itself was enjoyable and I thought the victim was deserving enough without having to add that additional layer Having read one or two of the others I get that Ms Bebris is going for a Gothic feel to these tomes so if you are interested in the injection of the supernatural added to Jane Austen's characters and time period EnjoyAnd yes I'm going to read them all just to see if I'm correct about the supernatural aspect flowing throughout the series
