Summary

Perfect for fans of the Lady Janies and Stalking Jack the Ripper, the first book in the Jane Austen Murder Mysteries series is a clever retelling of Pride and Prejudice that reimagines the iconic settings, characters, and romances in a thrilling and high-stakes whodunit. 

When a scandalous murder shocks London high society, 17-year-old aspiring lawyer Lizzie Bennet seizes the opportunity to prove herself, despite the interference of Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy, the stern young heir to the prestigious firm Pemberley Associates.

Convinced the authorities have imprisoned the wrong person, Lizzie vows to solve the murder on her own. But as the case - and her feelings for Darcy - become more complicated, Lizzie discovers that her dream job could make her happy, but it might also get her killed.

Delightful book

I really enjoyed this audio book. It's a perfect lazy Sunday listen. There was humour, murder, mystery and of course, love in it. It's true that it wasn't historically accurate, but if I were after historical accuracy, then I would be listening to history books. Some people might not like it because it's a rewritten version of Austen's classic, but I personally thought that it was cleverly done. I liked how Lizzie's character developed throughout the book and that she wasn't afraid of admitting it to herself when she was wrong. If you like murder mysteries and headstrong, intelligent heroines, then I hope you'll enjoy this book.

Enjoyable

From a huge Pride and Prejudice fan I can say this book was fun. I enjoyed the spin off version of events with original references sprinkled throughout. A good reimagining of the characters too. I would recommend.
