I introduced the Extreme Book Nerd Challenge I am participating in this year earlier this week and was going to share this on Wednesday but I couldn’t wait to get started. I am sharing my first book review of the challenge today!

Any Pride and Prejudice Fans out there? If you loved the original story this will be a fun read. Bonus points if you love a little bit of intrigue and mystery. The book picks up about 6 years after the original book. At this time the Darcy’s are in the midst of planning a big party when unexpected guests. Jack and Lydia Wickham show up along with one of their friends being murdered on the Darcy property. An investigation ensues to find out what exactly happened!
This book kept me interested and while I am not normally a murder mystery reader It wasn’t like an episode of CSI or anything like a serial killer. I loved checking in with Elizabeth and Jane (my old friends). P.D. James did a fantastic job.
I would recommend this book to any mystery lovers or fans of Jane Austen. Has anyone else read it? What did you think?
