Good installment in the Jane Austen mystery series. Not as instantly-immersive as some of the past entries in the series but still a good read. The ending actually had me in tears.
This novel is part of a series,altho it can stand alone), where the author blends Jane Austen's novels and historical novels into detective stories. Fun!
Excellent addition to Stephanie Barron's Jane Austen series. Jane gets involved in another adventure with Sir Harold, which involves duels, the gentry, an old friend and the haunted ruins of an abbey. Again, Barron writes so well you would truly believe Jane was writing the story herself.
These books are based on letters found writen by Jane Austen and are mixed with her letters to her sister and brother and the authors rich imaigination. Jane Austion is very much alive as a frustrated author, a crime solver and as a spinster with very little money.
Historial Fiction and Crime Novel at it's best. You do not have have to be a Austin book fan to love these books. They mix English Cozy with Historial Fiction.
