Avid Jane Austen fan here - and this is a follow-up that I can definitely place next to the original. The language, the plot - all very characteristic, the pace very good. I somewhat doubt that Ms. Austen would have used "totally" in her text, but anyways. While in the end I was a tiny little bit let down by the end - talk about "Deus ex machina" - I so much enjoyed the book that I finished it in 2 days.

Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book, ever! Because of this I am very wary of books where authors jump on the Jane Austen band wagon as they ultimately fail. P.D James’ attempt is no exception.

“The library at Pemberley was as freely open to her as it was to Darcy, and with his tactful and loving encouragement she had read more widely and with greater enjoyment and comprehension in the last six years than in all the past fifteen, augmenting an education which, she now understood, had never been other than rudimentary.”
― P.D. James, Death Comes to Pemberley

The book follows on from Pride and Prejudice six years later. Mr and Mrs Darcy now have two children and even Mary Bennet is married. The colorful Mr Wickham (to quote Jane Austen), barges his way back into their lives by getting caught up in the death of his friend on Pemberley grounds. Jane Austen will be quite literally turning in her grave I suspect.

“If this were fiction, could even the most brilliant novelist contrive to make credible so short a period in which pride had been subdued and prejudice overcome?”
― P.D. James, Death Comes to Pemberley

P.D James writes in a modern style, which is just plain weird. Mr Darcy does not speak like that nor would any of the other characters for that matter! There is no suspense but there is a reasonable attempt at a twist.

“One of her parlour borders, Miss Harriet Smith, married a local farmer, Robert Martin, and is very happily settled. They have three daughters and a son, but the doctor has told her it is unlikely that further children can be expected and she and her husband are anxious to have another son as playmate to their own.

On time entertained my daughter. This combined the two types of books that she loves. It also arrived on time.
