REVIEW of Murder and Matchmaking by Debbie Cowens

What if Mr Darcy is not more Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy but Mr Sherlock Darcy?

As you are reading, our Darcy is not more a “simple” gentleman, he is the most famous detective in London. He is not on his own, he has Doctor Bingley to help him (wink wink).

They are, as in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, friends and here also colleagues.

Darcy will solve a mystery, that the reader knows the solution from the very first paragraph. However, Mr Sherlock Darcy will have thegreat help of an amateur detective, Miss Elizabeth Bennet.

At this point, you may think that everything will be clear soon and that maybe it is not so intriguing. However, you are not right! The story is not as foreseeable as one may think. We have other famous characters from Jane Austen’s books and we have an extremely important character during the whole book: Lydia. In Pride and Prejudice, Lydia is a character that may have you as a enemy or as a friend, you may like her or hate her (depends on your mood as well while reading). In Murder and Matchmaking, you do not know what you feel for her, but Lydia does not leave you indifferent…

I hope you like this book. I am looking forward to reading Mansfield  with monsters, Debbie Cowens co-authored this book and as far as I have been checking, it is a bestseller. (As Debbie Cowens has corrected me, Mansfield with monsters is not about Mansfield Park. My mind was too busy thinking of Jane Austen that I assumed things that were not right. I do apologise.
