    1. I've truly enjoyed each of the Darcy's adventures into crime solving as, along the way, they encounter Austen's characters from each of her novels. However, this was the one I was waiting for with baited breath. Persuasion is my favorite of Austen's works so I couldn't wait to see what happened when Bebris combined a mystery with a sequel in The Deception at Lyme.This is book six in a series that works best in order as it follows the Darcy's adventures, but can also standalone just fine as it on [...]

    2. I purchased this book in 2011, and for some reason I have never gotten around to reading it. I don't know why this happens, and sometimes, when I finally read the book I have put off, I discover I really was missing something. I loved this book. I will only make one complaint which will be at the end of the review, and think it might make this book actually a 4 1/2 star, but I will leave it at 5 for the official rating.Carrie Bebris has written a series of books with Elizabeth and Darcy as sleut [...]

    3. The Deception at Lyme: Or, the Peril of Persuasion is the sixth installment in Carrie Bebris’s critically acclaimed Mr. and Mrs. Darcy Mystery series. This magnificent and long-running series is a collection of sequels to Pride and Prejudice, that place our dear Mr. and Mrs. and many situations of mystery, murder, and mayhem. After the first of the book in the series, Pride and Prescience, Carrie Bebris begins to combine characters from different Jane Austen novels. It is such enormous fun to [...]

    4. Another great one in the series. Not as entertaining and wonderful to me as #5, but still great. In this we meet "the last" of the Austen's major novels' characters. And as "Persuasion" is my favorite work by Austen, I was glad to see these people--wonderful and despicable in their own ways. What a plot and intrigue Bebris had left to work with from the original novel!My suspicions from the beginning were completely correct, though the background to how they came to be was still a mystery to me. [...]

    5. I’ve read a few books based on Pride and Prejudice but they were mainly romances and this was my first mystery. I think Lizzy and Darcy are well suited as detectives! They both use their social connections and wits to ferret out the miscreants and bring them to justice. The fun for me in this book was the mash-up of characters. Lizzy and Darcy travel to Lyme with their daughter and Georgianna, where a portion of the story Persuasion takes place. There, they meet and befriend Capt. Wentworth an [...]

    6. I've enjoyed this entire series, though I think I preferred this one over the others. But in all of this series, Ms. Bebris manages to capture the style of my favorite author, without descending into bodice-ripper excesses as have many other pretenders to Miss Austen's succession. The storyline in this book was less paranormal and more normal, which I quite liked. And --as always-- it was interesting to see how Ms. Bebris furthered the adventures of the side characters from the original Austen n [...]

    7. A Lyme Regis con Mr e Mrs DarcyImmaginate che un giorno Elizabeth Bennet incontri Sir Walter Elliot, più vanesio e stupido che mai, Mary Musgrove, con tutte le sue egoistiche paturnie, e Mrs Clay… in punto di morte? Facciamo marcia indietro: siamo a Lyme Regis, dove Lizzy e Darcy hanno portato Georgiana e la loro figlioletta Lily-Anne in vacanza a respirare l’aria salmastra, ma non solo. Darcy ha infatti l’incarico di ritirare il baule con gli ultimi effetti del cugino Gerard Fitzwilliam [...]

    8. Obviously, not quite as good as an actual Austen novel, but one of the best sequels I've read. I definitely want to go back and read this entire series. I was a bit disappointed in the end for one character, but overall I enjoyed it immensely!

    9. In Jane Austen’s Persuasion, the famed seawall of Lyme is perilous to the heedless, callow Miss Louisa Musgrove. But in award winning author Carrie Bebris’ The Deception at Lyme (or, The Peril of Persuasion) the Cobb is lethal. In this sixth installment of the critically acclaimed Mr. & Mrs. Darcy mystery series, Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth Darcy, their toddler Lily Anne, as well as Miss Georgianna Darcy, retreat to this seaside village, following their intrigue at Highbury. While in Lyme, [...]

    10. This is the sixth in the Mr and Mrs Darcy series. Bebris takes the married Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and sets them down before various settings and characters of Jane Austen's other novels, involving them in various mysteries for them to investigate and solve. And since no Austen novel is second in my affection to Persuasion, you can imagine my anticipation knowing The Deception at Lyme would deal with those characters. It was delightful to meet [...]

    11. Ms. Bebris completes the published Canon with this tale. It is based upon my favorite of the original six. Persuasion. Here we see shades of Louisa Musgrave and her fall from the Cobb leading to all sorts of Intrigue and murder as we have come to know in the series.As with previous volumes you must put aside your own interpretation of what the characters that Jane gave us would do, for amongst each set of the originals, Ms Bebris always finds one or more who have had a trait change so much that [...]

    12. Ormai Mr e Mrs Darcy sono diventati due personaggi stereotipati, battutine scontate sulla prole e niente più. Mi auguro che, conclusosi il "giro" dei romanzi della Austen, sia terminata anche l'opera della Bebris. Visto il successo commerciale prevedo però che ci sia un Ritorno a o qualcosa di simile escogitato per continuare a mandare in giro la più celebre coppia di Miss Austen che, un po' come Jessica Fletcher o Miss Marple, inizieranno ad aessere accusati di portare iella, come minimo.

    13. I was so excited when Ms. Bebris announced that she was finally writing her Persuasion novel (having written mysteries to tie in with Miss Austen's five other published works already). Mr. and Mrs. Darcy, accidental detectives, were finally going to meet the Wentworths. At Lyme (I love Lyme).The Deception at Lyme had all the things I loved about the previous books in the series - fun characters, complicated mystery, a bit of danger, a bit of humor and, especially in this case, romance. One thing [...]

    14. another definite winner from Carrie Bebris~ time well spent digging into the mysteries and cleverly plotted clues of favourite Jane Austen characters. Carrie is a master of accurate dialogue and realities of the era, making her stories ring true and plausible for this mystery buff! i enjoy the connections between various JA novels as Carrie brings the Wentworths and Harvilles of Lyme together with Darcy, Elizabeth and Georgiana, then adds in the Crofts, Elliots and Mrs. Clay for an extra measure [...]

    15. Interesting, fun to read, well-plotted mystery with the enjoyable surprise of Jane Austen's characters from different novels occupying the same world. I think Bebris has done an admirable job in recreating Austen's worlds while providing a well-written mystery. I very much enjoy the Jane Austen mysteries by Stephanie Barron, and these were similarly enjoyable, if not more so by utilizing a wider cast of scoundrels and heroines than simply Jane herself.

    16. I am really loving this book! It is so captivating that I cannot wait to see what else unfolds within the story. I picked it up as I am planning to see the author at a library event. Finally my two favorite characters meet: The incomparable Fitzwilliam Darcy and the magnificent Captain Frederick Wenworth! I'm in heaven!

    17. I've read several others of this Austenesque mystery series with Mrand Mrs Darcy as the detecting couple.These novels get better and better, andthis latest one is definitely my favorite.The Lyme setting, the use of Austencharacters from Persuasion, the murder itself are all very well done.

    18. A 3.5 which I enjoyed but would not particularly follow this author. Maybe she tried to hard to be true to the period and Jane Austen.

    19. This wasn't my favorite in this series, but Persuasion isn't my favorite Jane Austen novel. Still enjoyable, just not the quickest read.

    20. I've been looking forward to this book for years, since Persuasion is my favorite Austen novel, and the Mr. and Mrs. Darcy mysteries are some of the best Austen spin-offs I've read. Bebris definitely didn't disappoint with this novel. The beach wall at Lyme was a brilliant addition, and while some of the plot twists (especially regarding Anne Wentworth's friend, Mrs. Smith) felt a bit forced, the book as a whole left me wanting more. This was especially true since the Darcys were plotting a tour [...]

    21. This one was such a good book. From beginning to end I didn't know what would happen at the end; I had my suspicions of course but wasn't able to actually deduce the ending. And I loved Georgiana's story arc in this! I'm so happy about how that turned out. Until now it kind of felt like she wasn't even really in the books. She finally felt like a character in the series. So ready to read the next one.

    22. This is a fan fiction book based on my-not-favorite Jane Austen book, so it is no wonder I didn't quite love it. I did enjoy it, but it went on and on a bit.

    23. This is the first book in this series I have read. It captured my attention immediately, so I find it a promising series.

    24. In an earlier post I mentioned my guilt at devouring this Austen pastiche, especially considering how slowly I read Jane Austen’s actual novels, and it is with further shame that I report that I finished Carrie Bebris’ The Deception at Lyme (Or, The Peril of Persuasion) in record time.As penance I must go back to work reading my chest crushing annotated Pride and Prejudice, but first let me tell you about the the death of Lady Elliot (formerly Mrs. Clay) after she falls (or was she pushed?) [...]

    25. Estate del 1815, Lyme Regis. Elizabeth Bennet Darcy posa lo sguardo sul Cobb, l’antico frangiflutti della città, eppure uno spettacolo ancora più grande riesce ben presto a rapirla. Naturalmente, è il mare stesso. Quel tratto di costa è davvero suggestivo, e il signor Darcy è lieto di essere arrivato fin lì per contemplarlo insieme alla moglie e in compagnia della sorella Georgiana. Nel cuore della giovane e affascinante gentildonna si sta facendo strada il desiderio di un grande amore e [...]

    26. I really enjoy the Mr. & Mrs. Darcy mysteries by Carrie Bebris. These stories do a really wonderful job of taking characters I love and expanding their world by putting Lizzy and Darcy in the position of becoming sleuths - and successful sleuths at that!When Darcy, Elizabeth, Georgiana and baby Lily-Anne visit the seaside town of Lyme it is partially a vacation and partially family business. A cousin of Darcy's, a former navel officer killed in battle has left his sea-chest in the charge of [...]

    27. The Deception at Lyme is the sixth book in the Mr. & Mrs. Darcy Mystery series. One would think that by the sixth book the story would become routine and maybe dull, but that is definitely not the case. I find myself enjoying each installment more than the last, and hope that there will be many more to come!In The Deception at Lyme we see the Darcys on holiday in Lyme. No "Mr. & Mrs. Darcy Mystery" would be complete without a mystery - and this is no exception! They discover a woman who [...]
