  • Great author has written a witty romantic mystery

    Jessica Berg has an enormous amount of talent. She is great at introducing characters with distinctive personalities and plotlines that are intriguing but it is her dialogue that is so very engaging and entertaining! Murder Most Pemberley gives honour to the Agatha Christie style of murder and mystery in England with a dash of Jane Austen’s irreverent romantic writings in an English setting with pubs and biscuits and balls and a beautiful family estate with secret passageways and large gardens. I was pulled in right from the first paragraph to the last page. Berg’s main character, Eliza Darcy is a great blend of adventurous spirit and clever reasoning with heart. Really, Berg has created a list of characters that are either endearing or just plain fun to have around that could easily lead to a series if she wanted. As a reader, I’m hoping to see more books with these characters! • I received an ARC for an objective review.

  • Great book!

    The characters in this book are so endearing! They each have their quirks, but they work together just beautifully to take us through a tale of intrigue. There were so many layers that gave this story depth. It tied together the past and present with the location and characters tying back to the classic Jane Austen story. There were several big surprises along the way that kept me guessing right up until the end. I rate books on their ability to the following things- evokes emotion, great twists, and speed I read the book. This book hit all three! I received an ARC for an objective review**

  • Entertaining, mysterious, and romantic

    In Murder Most Pemberley, Eliza Darcy (the great-great-great-great-great granddaughter of Elizabeth Darcy) travels from her home in South Dakota to the estate of Pemberley in England for a family reunion. Excited and nervous to meet the family her father left behind when he abandoned England, Eliza is anxious to do some sleuthing into why her father left and why he won’t talk about it. Little does she know that the web of secrets, deceit, and murder that will ensnare her will threaten to take away the new family she has come to love, her heritage, and even her life. With a little help from Great Aunt Iris, her cousin Joy, and her handsome new friend Heath, maybe Eliza can solve the case. I found Murder Most Pemberley to be full of entertainment, mystery, and romance. The characters are witty and quirky. I found Eliza and Heath to be likable and their chemistry is tangible. Great Aunt Iris and Uncle Fitzwilliam are endearing and lovable. The mystery is unpredictable and kept me guessing. The story moves along and doesn’t drag or stall out, and even though it is a murder mystery, it’s still fun and flirty. I really enjoyed reading Murder Most Pemberley, and I look forward to more adventures with Eliza Darcy in the future. ***I received a copy of this book via the author, and I’m reviewing it voluntarily.

  • Well written and fun

    Book reviewers often say, “I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.” This title falls in that category. 100%. Murder Most Pemberley is a fantastic Jane Austen fan fiction/spin-off novel. This isn’t a reimagining of Pride and Prejudice. It is a cleaver link: American born, school teacher Eliza Jane Darcy is a descendant of Elizabeth and Mr Darcy. In fact, all of the characters in this modern story are Darcys, Bennetts, Wickhams, and Bingleys. The family has gathered at the Pemberley estate for a family reunion. Love that!! There are many mysteries in this book. Lots of things for the amateur sleuth, Eliza to figure out. Some involve family secrets, some much more sinister and deadly. I didn’t guess the ending. There are many characters which kept me changing my mind as to who the main criminal was. You’ll fall in love with the author’s characters: Great Aunt Iris is a HOOT! Tash the butler, Mrs. Bankcroft the cook, squishy, lovable Uncle Fitzwillian etc, etc. I’m so glad there will be more books in this series. I had to take away a star for one nit-picky reason. Sorry. The author included characters with the last names of Wentworth (Persuasion), Tilney (Northanger Abbey), and Willoughby (Sense and Sensibility). Maybe you have other thoughts, but I wish she would have stay in the P&P world. It could have been fun to visit descendants of those characters in other books. Jessica Berg writes for Red Adept Publishing. I also recommend you try titles from that publisher. Always well written books. Amber Waves of Grace is written by Berg and is available now.
