A great love. A perplexing murder. Netherfield Park — a house of secrets.

Fitzwilliam Darcy is in a tangle. Captivated by Miss Elizabeth Bennet, a girl of no fortune and few connections. Embroiled in an infamous murder in the home of his friend, Charles Bingley. He is being tested in every way. Fearing for Elizabeth’s safety, Darcy moves to protect her in the only way he knows but is thwarted. Thus, he is forced to turn detective. Can he overcome his pride for the sake of Elizabeth? Can he, with a broken heart, fathom the villainy that has invaded their lives? Is there even a chance for love born of such strife?

Lover’s Knot is a romantic Pride & Prejudice variation, with a bit of mystery thrown in.

When Miss Elizabeth Bennet arrived at Netherfield Park to help care for her sister she never expected it to be such a turning point in her life.

Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy thought he'd help his friend when he accompanied him to Hertfordshire but when he meets the beguiling Miss Elizabeth Bennet, his world will get turned upside down in more way than one.

Misunderstandings, murders, and intrigue have everyone bewildered. Can they solve the mystery before the demise of anyone else? And when all is said and done, will Darcy and Elizabeth be able to resolve their past issues and come to a welcome understanding?

Lover's Knot is a fascinating, thrilling, engaging read that will keep the reader seating on the edge of their seat guessing what will happen next.

I really love how Jenetta was able to take the beloved story of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and added some new twists and turns that make this a captivating read. I seriously didn't see that person being the culprit, talk about a plot twist!

Getting Darcy's POV in this book makes for a very entertaining read. I especially loved getting to know his thoughts, wishes, and dreams was superb.

I found Lover's Knot an engrossing read and couldn't put it down. It's a compelling storyline added to a timeless love story.

I highly recommend you pick up Lover's Knot if you like a little whodunit with your romance set against the backdrop of the Regency Era.
