#53 - Suspense and Sensibility by Carrie Bebris

After reading the first Mr & Mrs Darcy mystery by Carrie Bebris, I jumped right in and read the 2nd one! Suspense and Sensibility was an enjoyable story overall.

The Darcys decide to give Elizabeth's younger sister Kitty a season in London, in the hopes she will find a suitable husband. She meets Harry Dashwood, and they become engaged. But soon after the engagement, things go mysteriously wrong.

If you read the books as a lighthearted mix of mystery and a homage to Pride & Prejudice, this book series is an enjoyable read. But don't look for realistic plots, or for the characters to behave exactly as you would expect from P&P. Bebris adds in the mystery, and the characters' actions change accordingly.

All in all, a very enjoyable, quick read. :)
