Pride & Premeditation | June Book Club
The sunshine is poking through the clouds and June is here, which can only mean book club.
While we are on an interim break for the podcast, we are still running the book club, and this month is another corker. For the month of June at the The Island Library Book Club, we are reading a new release, Pride and Premeditation by Tirzah Price.
Blurb: Pride and Premeditation
Perfect for fans of the Lady Janies and Stalking Jack the Ripper, the first book in the Jane Austen Murder Mysteries series is a clever retelling of Pride and Prejudice that reimagines the iconic settings, characters, and romances in a thrilling and high-stakes whodunit.
When a scandalous murder shocks London high society, seventeen-year-old aspiring lawyer Lizzie Bennet seizes the opportunity to prove herself, despite the interference of Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy, the stern young heir to the prestigious firm Pemberley Associates.
Convinced the authorities have imprisoned the wrong person, Lizzie vows to solve the murder on her own. But as the case-and her feelings for Darcy-become more complicated, Lizzie discovers that her dream job could make her happy, but it might also get her killed.
Described as a mystery, thriller meeting historical fiction.
We are so excited to read this book, especially as one host is a fan of Jane Austen and the other (Jo, we can name and shame her) hasn't ever read any of her work. If you're interested in joining the book club, click here to read more.
