Suspense and Sensibility or First Impressions Revisited Ebook ï 301 pages Download » Eyltransferservices ↠ ✻ [EPUB] ✰ Suspense and Sensibility or First Impressions Revisited By Carrie Bebris ❅ – Fresh from the cuFresh from the curious and unsettling matter of Caroline Bingley as related in Pride and Prescience Mr and Mrs Darcy have every intention of enjoying their still newlywed status at Pemberly until they are confronted with another mysterious situation one of Suspense and SensibilityElizabeth Darcy and her beloved husband Fitzwilliam are taking on the responsibility of finding a suit 375 StarsIt happens to me so often that you guys are probably as sick of reading about it as I am of experiencing it I fall in love with the first half of a book only to fall rapidly OUT of love with the second In this case though it wasn't because the plot themes and characterizations became tiresomely repetitive or because the pacing became either frustratingly slow or alarmingly erratic It's because the charming witty wonderfully written romantic comedylight mystery of the first half gave way to an utterly bizarre paranormal supernatural 'thriller' The change was both jarring and poorly executed I'm an Austen fanatic but I'm in no way an Austen purist I'm open to a variety of seuels and spin offs and I neither expect nor even want them to be slavishly faithful to Austen's original work As a mystery lover I loved the idea of a whodunnit featuring Elizabeth and Darcy as sleuths More importantly I found this book was written in a delightful and sneakily sharp style that while different from Austen's managed to capture a lot of the same wit insight and spirit of which Jane would have approved And Sense and Sensibility was my second favorite of Austen's novels and one of my favorite books of all time so I leaped at a chance to catch up with some of those characters In theory I wouldn't have even minded a paranormal element but here it just swallowed the book whole overshadowing all the elements of the book that worked in favor of forcing a plot and tone that really DIDN'T work at all The novel was no longer even a whodunnit the only 'mystery' was when Darcy would acknowledge that something supernatural was at play and whether I'd throw my poor Kindle across the room in frustration ;The first half was a solid 45 stars for me filled with charm and wit and subtly brilliant turns of phrase The second half was closer to two starsand that's being excessively generous ; I've heard that Bebris' later mysteries are mysteries with the paranormal element mercifully minimized I'm hopeful that those will get a spot on my 'keeper' shelf that this one didn't uite manage to earn

Kindle Ç Suspense and Sensibility or First Impressions Revisited Ú Carrie Bebris

Able suitor for Elizabeth's younger sister Kitty thereby assuring her a proper place in societyThe angels smile on the young and a perfect match is found and wedding plans are soon under way Suddenly a change in personality occurs in Kitty's soon to be model husband a change so striking as to jeopardize not just the Darcys' social standing but their lives as wellA mysterious mirro Okay so I guess I'm going to have to read all of Carrie Bebris's mysteries written around Jane Austen books I don't know why The gothic supernatural elements that get thrown in always seem a touch on the ridiculous side I'm sure young girls 200 years ago would have LOVED them but she's so faithful to the characters I like them anywayThe second in the series explores Sense and Sensibility She's set the happenings of Sense Sensibility a few years earlier than they actually happened so that John and Fanny Dashwood's son Harry is the right age to fall in love with Kitty Bennet The thing I like most about these books is the way Carrie Bebris remains faithful to the original characters Some of the situations seem a little ridiculous Gothic to the extreme but the characters act like Jane Austen wrote them I was very happy to encounter Elinor and Edward Ferrars who have three children in this book; Marianne and Col Brandon have five and Margaret is married with three of her own Of course I was less than thrilled to see Fanny Dashwood and Lucy Steele Ferrars but one can't have any drama without conflict caused by ridiculous people like the two of them I shan't give away the supernatural Gothic twist although it made my eyes roll a bit Suspension of disbelief is vital to the plot of any of these I'm sure I'll be reviewing of these books in the future I like them despite the Gothic eye roll inducing twists

Book Suspense and Sensibility or First Impressions Revisited

Suspense and Sensibility or First Impressions RevisitedR an insidious reprobate from the past and matters far beyond the social circles around Pemberly all come into play in a dangerous puzzle where the conseuences may be the exchange of a soul for a soulOnce again the Darcys take center stage as the Regency era's answer to The Thin Man's Nick and Nora searching for truth between tea times amid the social whirl of Jane Austen's Englan Woohoo The SS characters meet the Darcys How fun I had never thought about how far apart the two books were set It was a bit sad to have Elinor 15 years older than Elizabeth but it all still worked And it was nice to see Kitty a bit mature and find her happiness and in the way that Austen dictated after PP was published I had a little trouble liking Harry at the beginning I felt the Darcys were enamoured with him a little too easily but I suspect that was to drive the plot along so we could get to the shocking changes later on And they were indeed shocking Bebris was right to put that in Austen's world? Major GASP But it was intriguing And with they mystery I again had my immediate suspicions which were mostly correct I was a bit ready for the paranormalmagic aspect this time though it still felt slightly disjointed Oh well Another light fun enjoyable read Perfect for what my mind can handle And I feel definitely assured in my recommendations of this book to Austen and Austen spin off fans
