  • Entertaining Mystery

    A P&P sequel where not many months after Darcy's marriage to Elizabeth Bennet he is informed of his father's cousins death - Samuel Darcy and of a share in the inheritance of the estate. They travel to Dorset to find that Samuel Darcy's body has disappeared and another body found on the grave. But then more bodies are found, and some of Samuel's treasures are lost and found. With the help of Colonel Fitzwilliam can the mystery be solved. An enjoyable read of this mystery made more delightful as the Colonel was more than a supporting role.

  • Caught Up in a Cousin’s Murder

    If you enjoy Jane Austen fanfiction as much as I do, your heart probably gave an erratic beat when you read the title of this book. Surely, this renowned JAFF author would not do that!! But, hopefully, you read the book's description, so you know that it is not our dear Mr. Darcy who has died but his cousin, a contemporary of Fitzwilliam’s father and dear fellow. Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam are young newlyweds at the start of the book, and they immediately learn of this beloved relative's death. This sends the Darcys to his estate to help get his paperwork in order as well as await the reading of the will. Fitzwilliam, Georgiana, and another cousin will inherit from this eccentric, globe-trotting, treasure-hunting relative. But once the Darcys arrive in Dorset, they are informed that the death was not by natural causes; he is believed to have been murdered. That sends the plot in a suspenseful direction, with darker elements than are typically seen in Jane Austen fanfiction. I have read a number of this author’s JAFF, and I usually appreciate her attention to historical detail and excellent storytelling. I wasn't as enamored with this book, however. The story itself fell flat for me in places. One thing that bothered me was the language. The author tried too hard to do the elevated language that we readers like to see in historical romantic fiction. She made it so elevated that I actually found it hard to read and even mildly unpleasant to do so. Elevated language is wonderful and helps give a sense of time and place, but for us modern readers, there is a level that should not be exceeded. I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.

  • Intriguing And Delightful

    Regina Jeffers is a new author to me and I look forward to enjoying more of her stories in the future. I was initially intrigued by the title and cover of the book. She wouldn’t, would she?!? I admit to being relieved when I discovered it was his father’s cousin who had died, leaving him part heir of his estate, filled with ancient antiquities and not the beloved Fitzwilliam Darcy. This was a wonderful tail of mystery filled with intrigue and romance. I was thankful the author thoughtfully included a cast of characters at the beginning because there were so many she kept you on your toes as the story progressed and bodies piled up. Newlyweds, Elizabeth and Darcy head to Dorset to make sure the estate of his late and dear relative within order and await the reading of the will. The mysterious death of Samuel Darcy was ruled a murder. Amidst the strange happenings and sinister goings on at the estate the Darcy’s become involved in trying to solve the mystery. I loved the romance between Elizabeth and Darcy, they were newlyweds after all and their love for one another was so delightful. I enjoyed this creative, well written and original storyline, I was thoroughly engaged throughout. All in all this was an entertaining though somewhat convoluted story. Thank you so much Miss Jeffers for such a wonderfully delightful reading experience.

    Thanks for your feedback!
