Overview

A thrilling story of murder and betrayal filled with the scandal, wit, and intrigue characteristic of Austen’s classic novels

Fitzwilliam Darcy is devastated. The joy of his recent wedding has been cut short by the news of the sudden death of his father’s beloved cousin, Samuel Darcy. Elizabeth and Darcy travel to Dorset, a popular Regency resort area, to pay their respects to the well-traveled and eccentric Samuel. But this is no summer holiday. Danger bubbles beneath Dorset’s peaceful surface as strange and foreboding events begin to occur. Several of Samuel’s ancient treasures go missing, and then his body itself disappears. As Darcy and Elizabeth investigate this mystery and unravel its tangled ties to the haunting legends of Dark Dorset, the legendary couple’s love is put to the test when sinister forces strike close to home. Some secrets should remain secrets, but Darcy will do all he can to find answers—even if it means meeting his own end in the damp depths of a newly dug grave.
With malicious villains, dramatic revelations and heroic gestures, The Mysterious Death of Mr. Darcy will keep Austen fans turning the pages right up until its dramatic conclusion.

This cozy mystery has it all. Our favorite Jane Austen characters are at it again. Darcy takes His Elizabeth on a journey to settle his cousin's estate and hopes for a little honeymoon time. When they arrive it turns grim quickly and Darcy and Lizzie must be strong to survive it. As usual Regina spins a complex story while staying true to the essence of these characters. Nothing is ever straight forward and if you think you've solved this half way through you would be wrong. Nothing is ever, ever as it seems.

Ms. Jeffers has done it again. Every time I read one of her books, I think it's my favorite. The Mysterious Death of Mr. Darcy has suspence, drama, and lots of tender moments. I couldn't put this one down. It is a great continuation of the Darcy and Elizabeth love story.
