THE INTRIGUE AT HIGHBURY (OR, EMMA'S MATCH)
Jane Austen's Emma meets the
Darcys? That's when murder and matchmaking can get out of hand. Bebris' favorite Regency crime-sleuthing couple are perfect foils
for the ingenuous, and occasionally ingenious, matchmaking of Emma Knightley (nee Woodhouse).
When the groom's uncle suddenly dies, the two couples are stunned to discover a bit of poison was included in the party. In the meantime, Emma is trying to find an appropriate spouse for the village spinster -- and the traveling man just might be the answer, if they can keep him from being charged with murder.
