Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy are back. In this episode they come to the rescue of Darcy’s cousin Anne de Bourgh, daughter of Lady Catherine. Elizabeth and Darcy discover Lady Catherine is arranging a marriage for Cousin Anne. And Cousin Anne is acting oddly. She actually accepts a request to dance and in the early waking hours before that, Elizabeth found her in the hallway looking happy and relaxed. Much different from the sickly, unhappy appearance Anne is known for. Within hours Cousin Anne will take her future in her own hands and disappear. The Darcys will travel to Gretna Green, Scotland. The results will have everyone trapped in the small village of Mansfield Park and caught up in a murder mystery. For a small village it’s buzzing with activity, both dire and humorous. Readers can expect characters from Austen’s Mansfield Park as well as new characters—it’s a delightful, interesting combination.
The Matters at Mansfield by Carrie Bebris is another in a series I've come to enjoy greatly. Bebris successfully keeps readers tuned in to the Austen / Regency era. The author takes her time setting the scene, so to speak, so the murder occurs about halfway through the book. Then Bebris offers one surprise after another... The one-liner cliffhangers at the end of some chapters had me going through the rest of the book pretty quickly. A must read for both historical mystery and Austen fans, alike.
Austenesque author Carrie Bebris ventures into her fourth excursion in the Mr. and Mrs. Darcy mysteries series with the recently released, THE MATTERS AT MANSFIELD: OR THE CRAWFORD AFFAIR, continuing the story of Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy after their marriage in Jane Austen's novel PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. Once again we join the famous couple as they investigate crime and murder among the gentry of Regency England involving many familiar characters from Jane Austen's novels.
It has been two summers since the Darcy's marriage in 1803 and the story opens at Riverton Hall in Buckinghamshire, the ancestral home of Mr. Darcy's mother Anne Fitzwilliam. The present Earl is giving a ball in honor of his new fiancé and the Darcy's are house guests along with other family members; sister Georgiana Darcy, cousins Colonel Fitzwilliam and Anne de Bourgh, and her mother the officious and overbearing Lady Catherine de Bourgh still giving unsolicited advice and talking a blue streak.
Lady Catherine's hen pecked and sickly daughter Anne is now 28 years old and being micro-managed by her mother to within an inch of her life. Lady Catherine is determined to secure a prominent match for her daughter since the mate chosen for her since birth, Fitzwilliam Darcy, defied her wishes and married that `gentleman's daughter', Elizabeth Bennet. Unbeknownst to Anne, her mother brokers a marriage to the son of a family friend and neighbor Lord Sennex, of Hawthorn Manor.Read more ›
