10 posts | 5 read | 4 to read
In Jane Austens revered Pride and Prejudice, Mary, the middle sister, is often passed over. Until now Upon the death of her father, Mary Bennets life is thrown into turmoil. With no fortune or marriage prospects, Mary must rely on the kindness of her relatives. When a mysterious late-night visit by an unknown relativea Lady Trafford from Castle Durringtonleads to an extended stay and the chance for an education, Mary gratefully accepts the opportunity. But even as she arrives at the castle, shes faced with one mystery after another. Who is Lady Trafford really and what is she hiding? Do her secrets and manipulations place the small seaside community at risk of an invasion by Napoleon Bonaparte? Always curious, Mary sets out to discover the truth. But when she discovers the dead body of a would-be thief she outed prior to her fathers funeral, Mary jeopardizes her position at the castle and her familys good name in her quest for the truth. Never underestimate the observation skills of a woman who hides in the background.

Mr Bennet has died and Mr Collins comes to claim the house, displacing Mrs Bennet, Kitty, and Mary. During the funeral process, a mysterious distant relation appears and offers Mary an opportunity. This leads into a mystery after a body is found washed up. I really enjoyed this! I found it charming and have discovered there are two more books in the series that I very much look forward to reading.

#Pemberlittens I'm so onboard for Mary Bennet being a spy! It's always the quiet ones like The Wallflower in Gail Carriger's books. Little slow in the middle. There was a lot to set up but worth it for the Ending. I look forward to the next book. 😊

Crinoline_Laphroaig Audiobook Note: This is not a critique of Book or Author strictly the Narrator. She mispronounced Maria Lucas's name repeatedly. I looked her up. She done a ton of Austen. She should know better. Fortunately Maria only features in a few scenes. And after the first one I had switched to Kindle. 2y

This has been making my commute much better for the past little while. I really enjoyed getting to spend more time in the world of P&P with one of the Bennett sisters. Very well done! #audio #audiocommute

I loved everything about this except Mary. However, she did improve at the very end, so let‘s see how she does next book!
