Kindle offer on Carrie Bebris books

I've received an email from new UK publisher, South Downs Crime & Mystery, and they have picked up the Carrie Benris series which features Austen's Mr and Mrs Darcy with the first three titles being 99p on Kindle for a brief time.

When Caroline Bingley marries a rich, charismatic American, her future should be secure. But strange incidents soon follow: nocturnal wanderings, spooked horses, carriage accidents, an apparent suicide attempt. Soon the whole Bingley family seems to be the target of a sinister plot, with only their friends the Darcys recognizing the danger. A jilted lover, an estranged business partner, a financially desperate in-law, an eccentric supernaturalist — who is behind these events? Perhaps it is Caroline herself, who appears to be slowly sinking into madness…

Pride and Prescience is the first novel in a series of romantic mysteries featuring Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice as reluctant sleuths who become embroiled in intrigues surrounding their friends and family. The newlywed Darcys' courtship hasn't ended, and their adventures have just begun.

The publisher describes themselves thus: South Downs Crime & Mystery is a new independent publisher of cosy, historical and golden age mysteries. We believe crime doesn't always have to be bloody and that great characters, settings and plot are what make mysteries so satisfying.

And they have a Facebook page.

I really enjoyed this series, although I feel that the first two novels in the series are more supernaturally based, whereas the later ones are much more securely crime fiction novels. Elizabeth and Darcy do make a great detecting team and I like how they manage to dip into other Austen novels.
