Book Details

Mr. & Mrs. Darcy, the joyous newlyweds from Pride and Prejudice, have not even left for their honeymoon when they find themselves embroiled in a mystery involving one of their wedding guests.
The lovely Caroline Bingley is engaged to marry a rich and charismatic American. Unfortunately, this windswept courtship is marred by many strange events: nocturnal wanderings, spooked horses, carriage accidents, and even an apparent suicide attempt. Soon the whole Bingley family seems the target of a mysterious plot.
Only the Darcys recognize the danger as the Austen genre of Regency romances mixes with the unearthly gothic threats of Ann Radcliffe and the Brontës. Dark forces are afoot and the Darcys must get to the bottom of the plot before the blushing bride descends into madness or worse.
In Pride and Prescience, the Darcys take center stage as the Regency era's answer to the Thin Man's Nick and Nora, in search of the truth, universally acknowledged and otherwise.

Reading Guide

In The News

“Thoroughly `light and bright and sparkling,' in the best Austen tradition with a dollop of murder and mayhem to leaven the whole. A delight.” —Stephanie Barron, author of the Jane Austen Mystery series

“Well crafted …Bebris works her own brand of Austen magic, whetting the reader's appetite for a sequel…Taking a lighter approach than Stephanie Barron's sleuthing Jane Austen series this one should appeal as much to Regency readers as to Austenites.” —Publishers Weekly

“Mannered prose, Regency backdrops, moody country houses, and delightful characterization place this new series high on the to-buy list.” —Library Journal
