P&P Variation with Mystery ;-)

I didn't start with book one in this series and I don't think I absolutely had to. But, now that I finished book 2 I'm definitely going to get book 1 to see what I've missed. I'm also going to check out other books the author has written. :-)

This is a well written and delightful romantic mystery. The characters are written with respect to the original (P&P) book. The story kept my attention throughout and the mystery did not disappoint. As always, Nancy Peterson narrates beautifully. Her narration is always a treat to my ears.

I was given a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

What Else Could Go Wrong?

After clearing his name of Wickham's murder in the first novel, Darcy and Elizabeth still have a long way to go before their happily ever after. The story begins with Mrs. Bennett and her five daughters shopping in Meryton. Lizzy meets Darcy as he enters the town, and perpetual matchmaker Mrs. Bennett convinces Darcy to escort Lizzy home. Lizzy hasn't seen Darcy in over two weeks and things are still uncertain between them. While Lizzy hasn't allowed herself to give her whole heart to Darcy, she has given him permission to court her. Darcy walks her home, and their wonderful flirtation over books gives him hope.

Returning to Meryton, Darcy and Col Fitzwilliam are dismayed to see Lady Catherine de Bourgh and Anne arrive to stay at the local inn. Anne is overtaken by a shocking illness, and the family struggles to keep it quiet. During the militia's parade a few days later, Elizabeth discovers the body of a person very dear to her. Overwhelmed with grief, she determines to find the murderer and bring them to justice.


Rather than being a rehash of the same events from the original Pride and Prejudice, this is a completely fresh plot. The introduction of new shopkeepers and other residents of Meryton expand the familiar circle of characters and keep the story fresh. There are a few characters introduced in the first book that appear in this one but it's easy to infer what their relationships are without lengthy explanations. This can truly be read as a standalone novel without spoiling the ending of the first book.

Darcy and Lizzy are portrayed perfectly in this version, and their interactions and conversations are so sweet. We get a glimpse of a new side to Mr. Bennett that I loved. A new father figure for Darcy is introduced, and I hope we see more of him in future novels.

Good luck guessing the identity of the killer! The murder plot is nicely done and there are well placed red herrings and clues throughout. There are a few twists and reveals that had me gasping and hitting the rewind button to make sure that I heard right. The mystery and the romance are given equal weight in the story and they don't detract from each other.

Nancy Peterson was the perfect narrator for this book. From the beginning I loved her voices for each character, especially Mrs. Bennett and Lady Catherine. They just seemed so authentic and sounded exactly like I pictured them. The narrator read the humorous bits with a pleasant smile in her voice like she's sharing the joke with us. She didn't overact or make the narration too dramatic, and her pace was perfect. It was the perfect combination of author and narrator.
