Overview


HAPPILY MARRIED for over a year and more in love than ever, Darcy and Elizabeth can’t imagine anything interrupting their bliss-filled days. Then an intense snowstorm strands a group of travelers at Pemberley, and terrifying accidents and mysterious deaths begin to plague the manor. Everyone seems convinced that it is the work of a phan-tom—a Shadow Man who is haunting the Darcy family’s grand estate.

Darcy and Elizabeth believe the truth is much more menacing and that someone is trying to murder them. But Pem-berley is filled with family guests as well as the unexpected travelers—any one of whom could be the culprit—so unraveling the mystery of the murderer’s identity forces the newlyweds to trust each other’s strengths and work together.

Written in the style of the era and including Austen’s romantic playfulness and sardonic humor, this suspense-packed sequel to Pride and Prejudice recasts Darcy and Elizabeth as a husband-and-wife detective team who must solve the mystery at Pemberley and catch the murderer—before it’s too late.

    Darcy & Elizabeth's Phantom

    Beautifully written!! Absolutely a must read! Includes much of the original text without any awkward wording; like some sequels have. It was very exiciting mystery definitly a keeper for your bookshelf. Ann De Bourgh takes a stand against her mother. You have interesting new characters.

    I Also Recommend:

    An exciting mystery involving our favorite couple..Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy.

    Once you get past the mushy mush between Elizabeth and Darcy in the first chapter, this is an joyable book. The Darcy's open Pemberly to a diversified group of family and strangers that are stranded during a severe winter storm. The 'phantom' appears in the very beginning and even though you think, by the middle of the book, that you know what is going on, the mystery and pursuing events continue to take you by surprise. The book is well written, has many interesting characters and holds your interest to the very end. This is the first book I read by Regina Jeffers, but I look forward to reading others.

    Not Exactly Jane Austen

    In concept, this book had a good plot, but it falls short of what it could -- and should -- be. While the author attempts to capture Jane Austen's style, there are too many American and modern anachronisms in her writing. One very quickly realizes this is most certainly NOT a Jane Austen novel. I did not appreciate the detail in which Darcy and Elizabeth's sex life is chronicled. It all but destroyed the romance Jane Austen built for us so long ago. Further, the amount of violence was jarring, and the number of survivals from such horrendous violence was not believable. Couple that with misleading foreshadowing and premises, and at the end I just felt off kilter. Why did I keep reading? Because, as I said, the plot is good, even riveting. The excessive violence occurs at the end, so I didn't know it was coming. I allowed my eyes to miss the sex scenes and finished the book. But I cannot say it was a satisfying read.

    Don't waste your time!

    I received this book as a free download which is a good thing since if I had paid for it I would be asking for my money back. I wish there was some way to get the time I spent reading it back. First off the author completely disregards the time period in which these characters existed and makes them modern. No way half of what is presented would have happened. I might ignore this if it had been a good mystery but the author fails to deliver this. I don't want to spoil the ending for anyone foolish enough to buy this book but I figured out "who dun it" long before it is revealed and the plot device utilized was contrived and ridiculous. Save your money and your time and re-read Pride and Prejudice instead. You will be much happier.

    shocking...and not in a good way

    . jane austen is rolling in her grave! I was immediatly pulled into this book, but then came the vivid, not needed, excesive bedroom scenes! Jane Austens innocent romance that you fell in love with the first time is all but ruined in this book! I. couldn't bring myself to finish the book! It had a great plot, but really, keep it real and pg please. If your looking for Jane Austen, its DEFINITLY NOT HERE!

    boring.

    Come on already. I don't care if you do have a house full of staff - if you got strangers wandering around & people dying - bolt down the doors & check room by room - behind furniture & for drafts. Have a draft - tap on the walls for secret passages. And the old-timer that knew about the passage - speak up! It might be your life next & the excuss to the boss - I thought you already knew doesn't cut it. I'm glad it was free when I downloaded it - not worth paying for.
    ps - I grew up on Barbara Cartland & Victoria Holt - now there's good reading.

    Terrific Cozy!!!

    Jeffers superbly captures the audience in her first cozy mystery. Based on the characters from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Jeffers uses actual Austen quotes to authenicate the characters while creating a tightly woven storyline.

    Hilariously bad book

    I don't remember ever reading anything quite this bad. The author keeps trying to hearken back to the real Pride and Prejudice, while channeling Barbara Cartland. She actually calls the villain odious.
    Free nook books mean lots of really awful stuff.

    Glad it was free

    The concept was very good but basic factors just didn't make sense. This took place in Darcy's ancestral home but he was ignorant of its layout - ??? And I grew very weary of his constant mooning over his wife! All in all a good story was ruined by fawning sentimentality and poorly laid details. Don't recommend it.

    Starts out good but...

    Ultimately falls short. By the 10 th chapter or so, begins to get silly and unrealistic ( characters amusing themselves with reinacting plays, sledding, and even having sex all while bad things are happening in their house). At times, it rambles on with unnecessary events that do no support the plot. Jane Austen would eventually be mortified if she could read the way some of her characters are portrayed( although, the author does stick to the main character traits of Elizabeth and Lady De Bourgh, thankfully). Perhaps my opinion is biased since I teach literature, but I think this novel would be better suited for people who are NOT Austen fans; simply because the antagonist wouldn't seem so silly.

    Anachronisms and Americanisms, oh my!

    The author is not a bad writer, but she needs to stick with contemporary romance. I managed to read 100 pages and finally had to give up because the use of anachronistic language was just too jarring. The characters simply didn't act or sound like anyone in a Jane Austen novel. I can't believe this made it through an editor and got published.

    Enjoyable

    I enjoyed reading this. I got it as a free download and have since purchased another by this author. I judge a book by whether or not it entertained me and this one did.

    Definitely reminded me of the old Victorian style

    If you liked Agatha Christie's "TEN LITTLE INDIANS" you'll love this. If you played the board game "CLUE", and liked it, that another comparison. I have not read this style of mystery since Agatha Christie and even then, she had nothing to compare to this. The PHANTOM of PEMBERLEY has love, romance,jealously, hate, murder, confusion, ghost, floating candles, uncommon footprints and this all takes place in a large old manor unexpectedly hosting many strangers during a massive snowstorm. Wonderful story!
