Death Takes a Holiday at Pemberley by Kelly Miller #book #review

What will the master of Pemberley do when confronted with the mercurial whims of an all-powerful angel?

Fitzwilliam Darcy’s well-ordered life is about to become a chaotic nightmare. A man of fortune, property, and social prominence, he has everything he could desire. Blissfully married to his wife, Elizabeth, they have a two-year-old son. With so much to live for, Darcy is shaken by a near-fatal riding accident. After a miraculous escape, he is visited by an otherworldly being: an angel of death named Graham. Threatening dire consequences, Graham compels Darcy to guide him on a sojourn in the world of mortals.

Darcy immediately questions the angel’s motives when he demands to be a guest at Pemberley. Can he trust Graham’s assurance that no harm will come to his wife and child? And why does Graham insist on spending time with Elizabeth? How can Darcy possibly protect his family from an angel with power over life and death?

In this romantic fantasy, the beloved couple from Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice must contend with both human and unearthly challenges. Are the fates against them? Or will their extraordinary love conquer all?

My thoughts:

I really like JA variations and some are good and some are way off. Death Takes a Holiday at Pemberley is really good.

Darcy is out on his horse and enjoying life with Elizabeth and their son Bennet. When is horse is spooked, Darcy has a near death episode.

Mr. Graham knows as the angle of death visits Darcy the day after and explains why he is there he wants to know and see why Darcy is so happy. In exchange for watching Darcy for a little but he will delay Darcy’s death. Darcy doesn’t really trust Graham, he has no choice but to agree.

Instead of spending time with Darcy as planned, Graham seems more interested in Elizabeth.

We also learn things from other characters that things are not as they seem.

The author did an excellent job with the characters and plot. You will not want to put the book down.
