The following is a honest review of Pride and Premeditation by Tirzah Price and my suggested age rating.
When seventeen year old Lizzie Bennet, a girl who aspires to have a career in law, finds out that in order to do so she must be in want of a case, she finds out about a society murder. This case Lizzie decides would serve as an excellent case to prove herself to her father’s law firm. There is just one problem. The man who is accused of the murder already has a lawyer: Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy, the handsome heir and snob of Pemberley Associates Law Firm. If proving to her father that she would make a good lawyer wasn’t enough, she now has to prove the accused man’s innocence in a man’s world. Darcy and Lizzie quickly learn that if they want to solve this case, they must set aside their differences and work together.
Review of Pride and Premeditation
I loved this Pride and Prejudice retelling! It was everything I hoped it would be. Along with the original, I love the dynamic between Lizzie and her parents. Also, once again I loved Darcy and Lizzie together! Them working together on a murder case is everything I could have wanted. Their banter was just as amazing to read in this retelling along with their sweeter moments.
Tirzah Price did such a good job with Lizzie’s character. She still proves to be the quick witted and independent young woman as she is in the original. The only thing I wish there was more of was conversations between Lizzie and Charlotte. But other than that, there’s nothing I would change!
The setting was also something I really enjoyed. In the original we are in a small countryside town whereas now we are in London with booming businesses and competition at every corner. Also I just can’t resist a London setting with the rain and coziness of walking to work every morning with your tea.
I would give Pride and Premeditation a rating of 4/5 stars. I would highly recommend this to any Jane Austen fan!
This book is appropriate for anyone ages 13 and up. It has some gore and detail of the murder that occurred.
