Pride And Prescience (Or, A Truth Universally Acknowledged) by Carrie Bebris

(From Inside Cover)

Mr. & Mrs. Darcy, the joyous newlyweds from Pride and Prejudice, have not even left for their honeymoon when they find themselves embroiled in a mystery involving one of their wedding guests.

The lovely Caroline Bingley is engaged to marry a rich and charismatic American. Unfortunately, this whirlwind courtship is marred by many strange events: nocturnal wanderings, spooked horses, carriage accidents, and even an apparent suicide attempt. Soon the whole Bingley family seems the target of a mysterious plot.

Only the Darcys recognize the danger as the Austen genre of Regency romances mixes with the unearthly gothic threats of Ann Radcliffe and the Brontes. Dark forces are afoot and the Darcys must get to the bottom of the plot before the blushing bride descends into madness or worse.

In Pride and Prescience, the Darcys take center stage as the Regency era's answer to The Thin Man's Nick & Nora, in search of the truth, universally acknowledged and otherwise.

I give this book ★ ★ ★ ★

Once I began to read "Pride and Prescience" I couldn't put it down. The story was interesting and I loved how even though Elizabeth and Darcy differed on the reasons for what was happening, they still worked together to solve the mystery.  I enjoyed reading this book and can't wait to start reading the next book in the series. My only objection is about the supernatural aspects but I still would recommend "Pride And Prescience". If not for the supernatural aspects I would've given it 5 stars.

This book  is the first book in "A Mr. & Mrs. Darcy Mystery" series.
