Fans of Jane Austen's book, PRIDE & PREJUDICE, will adore this novel! The author, Carrie Bebris, used the characters from Austen's famous novel.
Elizabeth Bennet had become Elizabeth Darcy. She had a double wedding with her sister, Jane. However, Jane's husband had a jealous sister, Caroline Bingley, who did all she could to steal the spot light from the brides. This included announcing her engagement to a rich American named Frederick Parrish.
Shortly after Caroline's wedding, odd things began to happen, such as her horse suddenly bolted almost injuring Caroline. Of course, everyone was concerned!
Professor Randolph, in archeology, specialized in the culture of North America. He traveled with the Darcys to Netherfield. He took along some American artifacts that he claimed had special powers. Things got sort of eerie when one house guest was murdered and a sudden blizzard trapped everyone in the house. It was up to the Darcys to figure out who-dunnit.
***** Characters we already know and love are in a deadly mystery, possibly involving sorcery! Carrie Bebris has done a masterful job continuing Austen's characters. Even the flavor of writing seemed the same which shows true talent! An extremely well done novel seems to be forming a possible series. Highly recommended reading! *****
