“It is settled between us already, that we are to be the happiest couple in the world.” —Jane Austen, Pride & Prejudice

Charlie Haywood is a London-based private investigator who has made his own fortune—on his own terms. Charming, cynical, and promiscuous, he never expected to be attracted to Evie Pemberton, an emerging and independent-minded artist living with the aftermath of tragedy. But when he is hired to investigate her claims to a one hundred and fifty year old trust belonging to the eminent Darcy family, he is captivated.

Together they become entwined in a tale of love, loss, and mystery tracing back to the grand estate of Pemberley, home to Evie’s nineteenth century ancestors, Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth Darcy.

How could Evie know that in 1817 Elizabeth Darcy began a secret journal? What started as an account of a blissful life came to reflect a growing unease. Was the Darcy marriage perfect or was there betrayal and deception at its heart?

Can Evie and Charlie unearth the truth in the letters of Fitzwilliam Darcy or within the walls of present-day Pemberley? What are the elusive Elizabeth papers and why did Elizabeth herself want them destroyed?


WOW. I am so happy with the story Jenetta James gives us in The Elizabeth Papers.  This is one of the best books I have ever had the pleasure of reading…EVER!  I don’t think I can sing its praises enough!  I want everyone who loves Pride and Prejudice to read it as well as anyone who loves a book so wonderfully written they can’t get it out of their head to read it. I keep playing parts over and over in my mind, I LOVED IT!  It is the best of both worlds for Janeites like me who love our regency romance as well as our modern day adaptions.  Alternating from the past to the present, we get to see our favorite couple through the intimacy of letters. Letters that were so beautiful, it reinforces why we love The Darcy’s. The suspense keeps you glued to the pages but the romance in this book makes you swoon! I still can’t get over the originality of it all and how much I adored it!

The Elizabeth Papers is incredibly ingenuous! I want to read it again and again and again!!  hearts5
