This is a P&P Mystery with MURDER in case that wasn't obvious from the title. Over all the story is quite good and the murderer isn't instantly revealed. I literally can't say much more with out spoilers.

It is clean but there is some violence

In this Pride and Prejudice variation, the Bingley family, the Bennet family + Mr Collins, Darcy, Colonel Fitzwilliam, Wickham, Lady Catherine, and Anne are all stuck in Netherfield after the ball due to a once in a lifetime snow storm. All the personalities are stuck as though in a pressure cooker with lots of outbursts and then people start dying (no spoiler since it is the title of the book). Fear and doubt cause some interesting confrontation and conversations. True colors are revealed to ev ...more

From the deepest desires often come the deadliest hate. ~ Socrates

Seventeen people (plus numerous servants) trapped by severe snow in an isolated country house. Seventeen people (plus numerous servants) waiting out the storm … and then there was one person fewer. The countdown begins.

Shades of “Ten Little Indians” – minus the table centerpiece and the poetry (which is not the food of love, after all)!

It's not the bullet with my name on it that worries me. It's the one that says "To whom it may c

A really good mystery

I loved this book, it kept me on the edge of my seat trying to figure out who was the culprit. Another great story by Jann Rowland, thanks.

A really good mystery

I would give this 4.5 stars. It is a very good mystery, with good plot points. It took me awhile to figure out the killer. The romance of Darcy and Elizabeth was written well. I enjoyed this book a lot and even though I know the ending, I will be reading this again.

I enjoyed the mystery and the setting of the events. The characters were well written and the plot was good. I was satisfied, that I figured out the identity of the murderer. It was nice to read, how about the investigation, and how fumbling in their attempts Darcy and Lizzy were. Only colonel Fitzwilliam had some investigative experience and contributed to discovery of important clues. Wickham's character was captured to perfection.
There were some inconsistencies and it moved a bit slow at time

I Highly enjoyed this book. I honestly think that this type of book works great for this author who is good a describing events but not so much of the dripping off the page steam-romance. Thus, this was a perfect who dun it. Though, i did quite easily guess who. Read Rose's review as it's fanstatic. This was a 4.5 read for me. Would have been higher but there were some grammatical issues that this author is perfectly capable of catching before publishing (they were blatantly obvious). Thus, I di ...more
In spite of a few problems I had with this story, which were mostly minor (I spent too long in a job that required me to edit and proofread), I loved this mystery. It's definitely a mystery, as well as a romantic Pride and Prejudice variation, and the mystery puzzle is well crafted, so much so that I didn't figure out who the killer was until just before the main characters did, and even so I didn't feel that any critical details had been withheld from the reader. So in that regard it's a brilli ...more

Mr. Rowland has done it again!

I really enjoy this author 's writing. He's not afraid to be a little dark and sinister with his material, even while telling a love story. Nothing too frightening, but definitely not a light and fluffy romance. The teaming of Darcy and Elizabeth in an informal murder investigation fit well with their individual personalities, being curious, clever and intelligent. The circumstances leading to the presence of so many of the characters from P&P at Netherfield for

Wonderful mystery, lacking any romance

Not a romance, much more a mystery with talk of feelings developing between Darcy and Lizzy but we never saw them really. No chemistry or romantic moments. A very good mystery, had me guessing till the end. Long winded and full of unnecessary details - if cut out it might reduce the length by a quarter. I know from Mr. Rowland's other excellent books that it is just his style. But truly it became tiring. It took me about a week to read because I kept getting

I got through most of the book without a clue as to "whodunit"!

I've enjoyed all Jann Rowland's P&P stories and -- though I'm normally no lover of mysteries -- this was no exception. I was baffled by each of the events and did not suspect the perpetrator until Elizabeth did (although I suspected nearly everyone else! Except Jane, of course.)

Avid Reader

As an ardent supporter of this author, I could not put this book down until I had finished it. The villains met their ends in a 😢 manner. To think that Mr. Bennett was the actual target was surprising. Elizabeth and Darcy worked hard to find the truth. If course Elizabeth encountered the murder first.

Disappointingly dull

The problem with this one is that most of the story was just tedious. I skimmed almost the entire book. I have read and enjoyed many of this author's other variations but this one fell short.

Really enjoyed this mystery variation of P&P. Didn’t realize until close to the end who the murderer was. Thank you for an enjoyable read!

An interesting take on pride and prejudice with plenty of murder to keep you wondering. A good read and easy to follow.

Jann Rowland is a Canadian, born and bred. Other than a two-year span in which he lived in Japan, he has been a resident of the Great White North his entire life, though he professes to still hate the winters.

Though Jann did not start writing until his mid-twenties, writing has grown from a hobby to an all-consuming passion. His interests as a child were almost exclusively centered on the exotic f
