Elizabeth Darcy is happily anticipating the birth of her first child, and although she is finding it to be a bit of a strain trying to follow in her much admired mother-in-law's (Lady Anne Darcy) footsteps. So that when she finds a long lost letter from Lady Anne, the last thing Elizabeth expected was that the letter would herald a disastrous chain of events that would calumniate with Darcy being accused of theft. As Elizabeth and Darcy try to make sense of what has happened and to clear his name, Elizabeth also finds herself once again crossing swords with Darcy's difficult and arrogant aunt, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, over a missing heirloom that Lady Anne held dear and which Lady Catherine is determined to claim for herself...
I thoroughly enjoyed "North by Northanger" and found it to be an easy, absorbing and quick read. One of the things I liked about it is that of all the Jane Austen pastiches out there, this is one series that truly captures what I think the Darcys' married life and relationship would be like. So, thank you Carrie Bebris for fulfilling my expectations.Read more ›
***** Carrie Bebris has created a wonderful mystery novel in the charming and delightful Jane Austen style. The story is written with such elegant prose that I believe Austen would very much approve. Elizabeth's quick wit in the face of such stuffiness of the upper class manners of the English ton makes this such a wonderful story. The intimacy that Elizabeth and Darcy exhibit toward each other is very refreshing and romantic. North by Northanger is a real treat for Jane Austen fans! *****

There shall be another generation. And obviously since this is only the third of tomes that Ms. Bebris is deconstructing, Elizabeth will survive.
Lady Catherine makes a large appearance but the timing is drawn out and makes some of her appearance beyond belief. And further her rationale for the care of the mystery is greater even than our heroines and perhaps that should have been played up more, with the entirety of religious intolerance. Being of the Roman Catholic faith is no way to have a great political career at the time of the novel.
Where we also see some failing is the voices we hear in the characters. Sometimes they are spot on, and sometimes they have missed entirely, in the same person, to my mind. And then of course we all have our own interpretations of how everything proceeded after Austen closed off P&P. At some point Lady Catherine and Elizabeth must have a relationship and here Ms. Bebris seems to make matters worse, as well as further perverting the character of certain others who once out of the tale, would have best been kept far away. The consequences of failure for them should have been such that a calculating person would not tempt fate, and once again timing of such informations revealed from the South of England is acted on very conveniently by those from the North.Read more ›
