Death takes a Holiday at Pemberley by Kelly Miller with a Giveaway

Kindle Edition, 258 pages
Published June 14th 2019 by Meryton Press
Pride and Prejudice variation
In exchange for an honest review

My thoughts:
Death takes a holiday at Pemberley, well that had me a bit scared. Don't you dare touch Darcy!

Death in the shape of Graham comes calling when Darcy almost dies. Graham wants to see why Darcy is so happy and decides to stay for a week.

What we have is a happy Lizzy and Darcy. But a Darcy who is fearful since death is near.

We also meet other characters that are dear to us, and not so dear. Lady Catherine is still angry and wants to cause mayhem, ugh, I despise her.

Other characters have their own troubles, one person made me disappointed, one made me happy.

I can't really say a lot other than yes Death is visiting. I also appreciated that the author never really spelled it out what he was and where he came from, the more religious side of it all if you catch my drift.

I always like my PP stories, because they can always take another turn, and this one was different for sure. You never know what will happen. They are always amusing.

I have a giveaway for you all! I know, it has been ages.

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?
