] The Tennant books are bad - bad! Pemberley Shades is slightly better, but not by that much. I don't know the author - found it at a research library. Good luck!
Just offering a different opinion here on PEMBERLEY SHADES. I'm almost all the way through it now, and I have found it utterly delightful. By far, it's the best sequel of any of them, and in my humble opinion, A. D. Bonavia-Hunt captures the tone, feel, and rhythm of the language of the era with a very skilled hand. Though not JA by any means, Bonavia-Hunt does seem to me to wield a similar cutting wit and a distinct appreciation for the peculiarities and absurdities of particular characters.
I recommend this read. ;-)
