Review: Murder Most Pemberley

Murder Most Pemberley

Eliza Darcy Mysteries Book 1

by Jessica Berg

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.


5 out of 5

I fell in love with this book in the first few pages. Eliza’s love of mysteries doesn’t leave her entirely prepared for one to drop into her lap, but she can’t help but follow the clues when it does. With a unique cast of characters, some of whom will find their way into your heart (looking at you, great aunt Iris). A cozy mystery that keeps you turning pages with a love interest that will keep you warm during this arctic blast we’re riding out right now. Highly recommend!



About the Author

I’ve been writing ever since I can remember. And don’t worry, I will NEVER share those with the world, but even though I can’t read them without rolling my eyes, the stories I made up years ago served their purpose. They ignited a passion inside me to write and to entertain.

I have many passions, and most of them either inspire my writing or play a central part in my stories. These are just a few of my favorite things: the prairie, the Midwest, my family, reading, Jane Austen, vintage treasures, old houses and windmills, gardening, flowers, and farming.

When I’m not writing, I’m a high school English teacher, a wife, a mother to four children and a dog, and always and forever a simple farm girl from the middle of nowhere South Dakota.
