Review quote

On ""North by Northanger"" "An utter delight . . . every aspect is pitch-perfect."--"Romantic Times BOOKreviews "(Top Pick)"Bebris captures Austen's style and the Regency period perfectly, drawing her characters with a sure hand. Her plot is poignant and gentle and will appeal to readers who prefer their mysteries without murder or violence."--"Library Journal" (starred review)On ""Suspense & Sensibility: """Jane Austen fans who regret the author wrote only six full length novels have reason to rejoice: Bebris' second Mr. and Mrs. Darcy mystery is even better than her strong debut...The author smoothly combines characters from"" Pride & Prejudice"" and ""Sense & Sensibility"" while remaining true to Austen's originals."--""Publishers Weekly"""No evil is a match for the witty and happily married Darcys."--""Kirkus Reviews"" On ""Pride & Prescience"" "Thoroughly 'light and bright and sparkling, ' in the best Austen tradition with a dollop of murder and mayhem to leaven the whole. A delight."--Stephanie Barron, author of the ""Jane Austen Mystery Series""show more
