Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

The Matters at Mansfield: Or, The Crawford Affair (Mr. & Mrs. Darcy Mysteries #4)

The Matters at Mansfield: Or, The Crawford Affair - Carrie Bebris

Excellent read.

 

This is the first book in this series that did not have a supernatural/paranormal element to the plot line and was instead a straightforward murder mystery - although there was nothing straight forward about this murder! LOTS of twists and turns, with a runaway ending, this book might be my favorite one yet. I like the way the author incorporates characters from Jane Austen's other books and I love the respect she shows for Jane Austen's characters as a whole. Nobody is going to be able to write Elizabeth and Darcy like Ms. Austen, but Ms. Bebris comes close - I always feel like I'm reading about Ms. Austen's characters - not someone else's interpretation of them.

 

Looking forward to the next one.
