The Intrigue at Highbury by Carrie Bebris

The Intrigue at HighburyThis is the fifth novel in Bebris’ “Mr. and Mrs. Darcy Mystery” series which, as the name implies, follows Elizabeth Darcy, née Bennet, and her husband as they become unlikely detectives in various mysteries that take place through Austen’s other novels. While I cannot argue that Bebris is the greatest writer in the world, she does a very good job of recreating Austen’s settings and characters.

In The Intrigue at Highbury, or Emma’s Match, the Darcys find themselves trying to help Emma and Mr. Knightly solve a murder at Highbury. While I have enjoyed all the novels in this series, this one has been my favorite. I absolutely loved the interactions between these characters and I think that any fan of Austen will enjoy seeing how Bebris plays with these classic novels and puts you in the place of the characters of Elizabeth, Emma, Mr. Knightly, and Mr. Darcy. This is a very quick and light read and one that I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys the original stories.
