What did you love best about Death Comes to Pemberley?
I thought it was well-written and quite Austen-like in its wit and portrayal of the manners of the time. There were some charming little surprise references to Austen characters from other novels which I loved.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I agree with one reviewer that the women characters were overall a little pale and retiring in this story. I would have to say Darcy is the most central person, and his self-reflections are interesting.
What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?
The narrator was easy to listen to, and I loved her working class Brittish accents.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Old family scandals breed fresh problems for Elizabeth and Darcy.
Any additional comments?
This was a very enjoyable listen. Don't let the critical reviews dissuade you from giving it a try!

I've read many (not all) continuations of Pride & Prejudice. Generally, one of the Bennett daughters has an active role in plot development and story line. Elizabeth does not play an active role in this tale. I suppose this reflects reality for women in the earlier 19th century. The suspense, mystery is pretty trivial and the solution smacks of deus ex machina.
If you want a good story, a mystery, and Jane Austin, stick with Stephanie Barron's series.
I enjoyed the reader. She is speaks clearly and told the story well.
