Book Review: Pride and Prescience by Carrie Bebris
The whole name of the book is: Pride and Prescience (Or, A Truth Universally Acknowledged) A Mr. and Mrs. Darcy Mystery
Darcy and Elizabeth & Jane and Bingley are married and at their wedding breakfast Ms. Bingley tells that she is to marry Mr. Frederick Parrish, American gentlemen, after a week. Darcy and Elizabeth has planned to leave to Pemberley right after the wedding, but the wedding of Ms. Bingley postpones their leave and they go to London. At their wedding night at London they are coming back from a dinner when they see Ms. Bingley walking alone in dark, unsafety street. This evening starts a course of weird happenings in the life of Caroline Bingley, and also in the lifes of her family and Darcy's.
Caroline tries to kill herself and the whole party leaves to Netherfield (party including Jane, Bingley, Elizabeth, Darcy, Mr. Hurst, Mrs. Hurst, Caroline and Mr. Parrish and american archeologist Mr. Randolph.) At Netherfield even weirder things starts to happen; Jane and Bingley almost die two times and there is also a murder in the house. Elizabeth and Darcy has their own thoughts about the situation, but there is some thoughts in Elizabeth's head that Darcy does not believe.
The end of this book is really suprising, and the whole book is exciting. I read the whole book in two days, because it was easy to read and I couldn't put it down.
This book was really different from the other P&P sequels I have read, but this was one of the best ones I have read so far.
