Murder Most Pemberley by Jessica Berg Great Escapes Tour
Eat a crumpet. Check. Say “bloody hell” in an English pub. Check. Solve three murders and fall in love? Definitely not on the list. But when England dishes up murder, even an American girl knows it’s time to channel her inner Agatha Christie.
American Eliza Darcy travels to Merry Old England to partake in a Darcy/Bennet family reunion for one reason: to solve the estrangement between her father and uncle. Not long after Eliza’s arrival and exploration of the vast estate of her ancestors, a dead body surfaces. Murder and mayhem replace afternoon teas and flirting with her British heartthrob. Eliza has every intention of keeping her snoot out of official Scotland Yard business, but when clues to the murder begin to merge with her investigation into her family’s rift, her inner wannabe sleuth self-activates.
With the help of her batty great-aunt and the sexy Heath Tilney, Eliza hurries to untangle the web of lies and secrets. As corpses start to pile up faster than the clues, Eliza fears the estate’s family graveyard will swallow another body: hers.
And I thought . . .
Another great beginning. This is one of my favorite reasons to be a part of tours. I gat the chance to meet new authors, new characters. And begin brand new series.
I loved the setting. All the Brisish "speak'.
Author Jessica is Berg made me feel like I was there. And a good feeling it was.
Well until all the bodies began to pile up.
With every good Cozy we get a good sleuth and hopefully a bit of Romance or the promise of an eventual Happy Ending for the main character.
Eliza is a fun character. A good daughter and niece. And a fairly decent sleuth.
There were quirky characters with a bit of 'Brittishness'. And a stuffy character or two. And then there was handsome Heath. I wanted to take him home myself!
I turned the pages unable to put my phone down. Following a few twists that kept me guessing and interested.
I enjoyed the beginning of this series and look forward to many more.
