Crossover Covers: The Mr. and Mrs. Darcy Mysteries
Win included the first five books in Carrie Bebris' Mr. and Mrs. Darcy Mysteries, which feature Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth Darcy from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice alongside characters from Austen's other novels, in the AU section of the original Crossovers volumes, as the chronology of Bebris' series does not fit with CU continuity, where the events of Pride and Prejudice must take place before 1795 due to Darcy and Elizabeth being married (and Elizabeth pregnant) when they were exposed to the radiation of the Wold Newton meteor. Two more books have appeared since then, and I will be including them in the AU section of the new volumes. The Deception at Lyme (Or, The Peril of Persuasion) features characters from Persuasion, while The Suspicion at Sanditon (Or, The Disappearance of Lady Denham) has the Darcys meeting characters from Austen's unfinished novel Sanditon.
