North by Northanger or, the Shades of Pemberley
Following the occult unpleasantries of the incident related in "Suspense and Sensibility", Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy are looking forward to enjoying life at the family estate, Pemberley, as they await the birth of their first child. However, all is not restful. Secrets of the past and intrigues of the present threaten their peacefulness, solitude, and possibly even their security. First a mysterious letter arrives. Then Darcy is called to attend to certain challenges to the family fortune and worse yet, his aunt arrives to bedevil the household with her own brand of imperial helpfulness. All matters converge when a family heirloom is found to hold the key to a family secret, a secret that years of conspiracy have tried to keep hidden.

On "Pride & Prescience" " Well crafted ...Bebris works her own brand of Austen magic, whetting the reader's appetite for a sequel...Taking a lighter approach than Stephanie Barron's sleuthing Jane Austen series this one should appeal as much to Regency readers as to Austenites."--"Publishers Weekly""Mannered prose, Regency backdrops, moody country houses, and delightful characterization place this new series high on the to-buy list."--"Library Journal"
