Lizzy Bennet Ghost Hunter is inspired by Jane Austen’s beloved novel Pride and Prejudice, and by the sort of tall tales best heard among the shadows and wavering glow that surrounds a campfire. This is a boxed set of five previously published stories: The Netherfield Phantom, Spectres at Longbourn, Rosings and the Wraith, Ghost of a Pemberley Bride, and Shades of Prejudice Past. Together, the five stories read as a novel and follow the story arc of Pride and Prejudice. In these stories, Lizzy grapples with her strange abilities and even stranger relations…and an unwelcome but growing fondness for a certain gentleman. The Netherfield Phantom A mystery at Netherfield Park…and Lizzy Bennet is going to unravel it. Lizzy Bennet first chased ghosts as a lark. A merry pursuit to enliven her carefree days. Her sister Jane is less sanguine; she’s the one the spirits appear to, the sister unhappily gifted with the sight. But with the Netherfield phantom, all of that will change. Spectres at Longbourn A haunting in Lizzy Bennet’s family home…and the arrival of a long-anticipated visitor. Spirits and spectres crowd Lizzy Bennet’s thoughts after her adventure at Netherfield – maybe that’s why she begins to notice the odd occurrences her first night back at Longbourn. But she has other concerns to contend with. Jane’s growing friendship with Mr. Bingley leaves Lizzy as the target for their visiting cousin’s ambition. Mr. Collins will inherit Longbourn, and he is seeking a wife. Lizzy is determined not to become that unhappy woman. And she’s equally determined to help the spirit haunting Longbourn leave the Bennets for good. Rosings and the Wraith A wealthy heiress in the grip of a suspicious malady…and the increasingly curious behavior of Mr. Darcy. Lizzy Bennet has her hands full. The implications of marriage, or the lack thereof, have never been more on Lizzy Bennet’s mind. With her sister Jane pining for Bingley in London, Lizzy visits Charlotte at her new home in Kent and finds her friend both settled and settling. But her first glimpse of the reclusive heiress Anne de Bourgh brings mystery crashing delightfully into what might otherwise be a quiet trip. When Mr. Darcy and his cousin Colonel Fitzwilliam arrive at Rosings Park, lighthearted Lizzy must begin to face the largest mystery of all – what is it that she really wants? Ghost of a Pemberley Bride Lizzy Bennet’s visit to the grand house of Pemberley reveals another side of the man who loves her. Summer travels with her favorite relatives should have been exactly what Lizzy Bennet needed. Yet the “passenger” spirit she carries is growing heavier by the day. When their trip is cut short and the Gardiners suggest staying near the estate of Pemberley, Lizzy is of two minds. She wants to see the house and is curious to find out what she can about its master, yet she’s sure humiliation will rapidly follow should Mr. Darcy find her there. But upon her arrival, an unsettled spirit seeks her out and Lizzy sees a side of Darcy she never anticipated. Shades of Prejudice Past In this final Lizzy Bennet Ghost Hunter story, Lizzy must learn to make her own choices…in life and in love. The discovery of Lydia’s elopement with Wickham throws the Bennet family into chaos. Her feelings for Darcy awakened after her visit to Pemberley, Lizzy must now admit there’s no possible future for them with her family’s reputation in tatters. She has choices to make. Will she let her ancestor’s whispered prejudices or her social obligations decide her path? Or will she reach for what she wants most in this world, even if it breaks her heart?

"This enjoyable book delivers a lesson, and its playful drawings invite the young reader into a wonderful place somewhere between fantasy and reality." --New York Times Book Review "A girl frustrated with her parents' rules fires them and hires a dragon to take their place." --Publishers Weekly, Included in Fall 2018 Announcements "While mystery writer Laura Lippmann's debut picture book, Liza Jane and the Dragon (Akashic, Oct.), illustrated by Kate Samworth, actually is being marketed towards children, it's also an allegory for the 2016 election. Liza Jane is a little girl who fires her parents and hires as her new parent a fire-belching dragon that drives away her friends and looks suspiciously like Trump." --Publishers Weekly, Included in Roundup of Political Books related to Donald Trump "Laura Lippman, who is best known for her gritty thrillers for adult readers, has written her debut picture book, Liza Jane and the Dragon, illustrated by Kate Samworth, definitely for children. Adult readers, however, will likely recognize that this isn't simply a tale about a girl and her dragon; it's also an allegory of the 2016 election: Liza Jane fires her parents and hires a dragon with an orange mane to be her new parent." --Publishers Weekly, Included in feature on Trumpian Political Humor "This appealing debut picture book is enriched by the strategic use of color in Samworth's dreamy illustrations, and kids will roar at the dragon's outrageous antics. This delightfully quirky read deserves a place in most collections." --School Library Journal "Written with an impressive originality by Laura Lippman and illustrated with the exceptionally artwork of Kate Samworth, Liza Jane & the Dragon is unreservedly recommended." --Midwest Book Review Included in the Bay Area Reporter's Fall 2018 Reading Guide "Bestselling crime fiction author Lippman's picture book debut tells the story of what happens when Liza Jane fires her mom and dad and hires the first applicant who comes to the door to be her new parent. The only problem is that the dragon has only one response to all problems: opening his mouth and belching fire. No one wants to play with Liza Jane. And all that fire is bad for the furniture." --Publishers Weekly, Included in The Big Indie Books of Fall 2018 "Silly, funny and a joy to read. The illustrations are great, too. Get a copy for your little one, they'll read it more than once!" --Journey of a Bookseller Liza Jane believed she could find better parents. So she fired her mom and dad and hired the first applicant who came to the door--what could possibly go wrong? And at first everything was fun. The dragon did whatever Liza Jane wanted him to do. But it turned out the dragon had only one response to all problems--opening his mouth and belching fire. Suddenly, people were scared of Liza Jane. The pizza delivery man didn't want to come to her house. No one wanted to play with her. And all that fire was very bad for the furniture.

Who can ever get enough of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice? Who doesn’t dream of strolling through stately shrubberies? Of reveling in Regency lore—where luxury is silken, manners are refined, and the language reflects exquisite sensitivities and a decorum whose bonds we have managed to escape, yet we still find charmingly quaint? Dreaming Pemberley is a mini-saga composed of four “dreams” that carry the Bennets, Darcys, Collins, and their friends forward in their lives through two generations. Their journeys are fraught with painful detours and misunderstandings, and they are forced to grapple with character flaws as well as dastardly acquaintances. At one point, a member of the Collins household is deemed a witch! In the fourth dream, the famed equanimity of Pemberley is threatened by a disruptive cat. However, felicity and redemption are persistent threads, and we rejoice when Anne de Bourgh’s personhood is allowed to blossom, even though Lady Catherine de Bourgh feels strongly abused. Mystery and surprise are found at various twists and turns. Georgiana’s fate is beyond belief. And the late Mrs. Darcy’s long-locked tea room engenders a renown that spreads as far as London—much to Mr. Darcy’s chagrin. Over all, the gracious gentility that pervades Pemberley is a force for good and does much to soothe hearts and hurts.
