This book is cute as a button. A light mystery and a self-referential spin-off of Pride and Predjudice.

Apparently the third in a series of Mr and Mrs Darcy Mysteries, this book supposes the Darcys (while awaiting their first child) caught in a scandal with over a man claiming to be Frederick Tilney (a character from another Jane Austen Book called Northanger Abby, and unraveling another mystery dealing with a prized possession of Mr Darcy's late mother.

It gets a little eye-roll-y and impossible toward the end, but most of the book is sweet, fun, and generally authentic to all the characters originally created by Austen in the 19th century. I had a great deal of fun picking out the dialogue and characters from various books that floated around in the background of the story and through individual scenes.

Recommended. If you're in to this sort of thing.
