The overall mystery was good. Ms. Swan does a good job of hiding the true poisoner and slowly revealing the truth. The characters are refreshingly modern (not as stiff and boring as other P&P redux) but they do have a bit of a caricature feel to them (Mr. Collins is TOO stupid, Anne is TOO browbeaten and timid)
This book would have been quite good if it weren't for the addition of the forensic toxicologist. Ms. Swan slips a few too many modern characteristics and terms into her books but they're usually easy to overlook. This one was so snort-worthy obvious that it took me right out of the story. While she tries to camouflage him as an 1805 gentleman science enthusiast, he's running around with a laboratory and tests to extract poisons from tea. I'm sure the science was getting its start at this historical period, but Mr. Darcy collecting samples of all the tea things was pretty far-fetched.
Elizabeth and Darcy continue to sneak around, hide the truth from each other, get mad, flounce off and then get all hot and bothered for each other, just to begin the cycle all over again.
