  1. I agree with you that this is a good read and I also liked the good level of details P. D. James provides in her books specifically this one; I also reviewed the book here: http://www.mysterytribune.com/2012/02/11/read-death-pemberley-read/

    However, don’t know if you fully agree with me or not; I think in spite of all the notable things, this book had too much fluff in it and also the recaps to Pride and Prejudice were to some extent excessive
