of tequila and karaoke. I promptly swore off karaoke the next afternoon. This time my late night was due to relentless questioning by a humorless detective. All things considered, I preferred the tequila/karaoke debacle, even with all its nasty aftereffects. The detective who’d been put in charge of the case was a burly man by the name of Stewart

This book scored a double delight for me. I am a mystery novel nut and a Jane Austen nut and this book got it right on both counts. It is a very hard chore for an author to write an interesting and complicated mystery and still combine it with just enough Pride and Prejudice references to keep any Austen fan content. Tracy Kiely has hit exactly the right note for me with this book.

Elizabeth (Lizzy to her friends) Parker is invited to a Murder Mystery Dinner at the B & B recently opened by her Aunt Winifred on Cape Cod. During that New Year's Eve party there was a murder, but a real murder, not a scene performed by actors. Lizzy wants to make sure the police don't focus any of their suspicions on her Aunt so she tolerates the presence of her childhood adversary Peter McGowan. Lizzy doesn't call Peter "spawn of Satan" because she likes him. Oh no, just the opposite in fact.

This was wonderfully amusing and I thoroughly enjoyed watching this author recreate many of the major characters from Pride and Prejudice and place them in this modern setting. It's really fun to try to recognize Mr. Darcy, Willoughby, Mr. and Mrs. Collins, and Jane and Bingley. Lizzy and Aunt Winnie quote lines from Pride and Prejudice at every opportunity, but this very talented author has managed to get all of this incorporated into her mystery novel without being either heavy handed or silly. Quite a remarkable accomplishment from my standpoint because I don't enjoy seeing my Austen characters ridiculed. This mystery alone would make the book a worthwhile reading experience. Ms Kiely did a very good job with the plot and the details of the mystery itself. And if I wasn't surprised by the outcome it was only because I have been reading mysteries for a long time. I would love to read other books along this line by Tracy Kiely.

While mystery stories are not high on my list of books to read I decided to order "Murder at Longbourn" because I am a huge fan of everything P&P and because of the many positive reviews this book has received. I have not regretted that decision. It was a delightful change of pace story with many interesting characters and lots (and I mean lots) of laugh out loud moments. The story is told in the first person which is always a treat because you basically know the heroine will live to see another day. It was also nice to see the occasional quote from my favorite Jane Austen works. There is no point in my outlining the story as it has already been done by others and everything you need to know is in the editorial reviews provided by Amazon. What you do need to know is that this is truly a unique story and very readable. I find myself eagerly looking forward to Ms. Kiely's next book. In the mean time I highly recommend this one.

This murder mystery is wonderful and keeps you guessing who dun it right til the end. The main character Elizabeth gets invited to her aunt Whinny's inn on the cape. It's called Longbourne Inn. Both her and her aunt are jane Austen fans. Anyway the inn is hosting a murder mystery dinner, which turns out to be a real murder. The murder of the towns most despied man. There are a few characters similar to the book "pride and Prejudice". But the mystery is done perfectly "Agatha Christie" style. The story has wonderful quotes from Elizabeth and her Aunt during situations that called for it. The hero is a little Darcyesk and like all good books we find out all the info in the end to solve the murder and the heros and heroines go home happy. Definitly worth reading I enjoyed myself trmendously!!!

I am probably the only person reading this book without having read Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice.' So, I went into the story with an innocence and am leaving with knowing I need to read Ms. Austen's works.

Elizabeth goes to help her Auntie with a special New Year's celebration at her Bed and Breakfast. The theme will be dinner with a killer. Or, Dinner theater. Too her dismay, a childhood friend (sounds like a real terror in the day, Peter McGowan is there to help as well or is he? Could he be Mr. Darcy?

The dinner comes along with many memorable characters and there is the planned death, oops, perhaps not so planned indeed.

I enjoyed the dialog, jokes, references to the above-mentioned book, and the style surrounding the novel. I eagerly await reading her next book.

I thoroughly enjoy this Elizabeth Parker murder mystery series. Likable characters, good story flow, great humor. My only complaint is that there aren't more of them.

This is a clever mystery in the style of Murder, She Wrote and the town of Cabot Cove. Elizabeth Parker is vising her Aunt Winnie on Cape Cod when a very unpopular guest is murdered. Because Elizabeth's aunt is a suspect, Elizabeth starts investigating the crime on her own. If you are a fan of Pride and Prejudice, you will enjoy all the quotes from the novel that Ms. Kiely has seamlessly worked into the story. A quick, fun read.

Enjoyed the book. I liked the references from Pride and Prejudice, and enjoyed the twists and turns of the murder mystery.
Elizabeth Park is spending New Year's Eve at her Aunt Winnie's newly opened B&B on Cape Cod. "How to Host a Murder Party," is the theme, and a local acting group has been hired to stage a murder mystery dinner New Year's Eve.

Not surprisingly, a wealthy local businessman who wanted the B&B for himself, becomes the unplanned murder victim. When suspicion falls on Aunt Winnie because of her acrimonious exchanges with the victim, Elizabeth decides to help find the murderer.

Amateur sleuths in novels tend to be tiresome and irritating to both readers and the local law enforcement agency. This novel is mostly saved from that fate by the entertaining personalities of the main suspects and by the quotes from various authors, most frequently Jane Austen, at the beginning of each chapter.

This is a fast-reading and entertaining first mystery. Hopefully, there are more on the way from author, Tracy Kiely.
