Description

Pride and Prescience embroils the joyous newlyweds from Pride & Prejudice in a mystery involving one of their wedding guests, the lovely Caroline Bingley, who is engaged to marry a rich and charismatic American. Unfortunately this windswept courtship is marred by many strange events such as nocturnal wanderings, spooked horses, carriage accidents, and even an apparent suicide attempt. Soon the whole Bingley family seems to be the target of a sinister plot, with only the Darcys recognizing the danger. The Austen genre of regency romances mixes with the gothic unearthly threats of Radcliffe and the Brontes where sinister forces are afoot and the Darcys must get to the bottom before the blushing bride descends into madness or worse.show more

Review quote

"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 "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"show more
