This is a bit of a slow read, with a somewhat less satisfying payoff than a story written by Austen. Overall, it's a skillfully written sequel to Pride & Prejudice, though Mr. Darcy has perhaps become here TOO perfect (and his perspective seems the most nuanced). This book is not quite a murder mystery and not quite a romance, which makes it difficult to either describe or recommend. I can only suggest that if the concept sounds interesting to you, then yes, go ahead and read it! But I would not, perhaps, put it at the top of your list (particularly in the summer; this one goes much better with a hot cuppa).

If you are a fan of Jane Austen's Pride and Predjudice, I think you will enjoy this book, a continuation of a short space of Mr. & Mrs. Darcy's married life. I did enjoy it, very much so. Though written by a modern author in the murder mystery genre, the sensibilities of the style, dialog, etc. feel true to Austen form while adding a modern edge - a bit of humorous subtextual comment on the social strictures of that era - to the story. A fine and fast read, highly recommend.
