I really have enjoyed this series! Each book is so different than the last but I highly recommend reading the one before in order to know what is going on. The author takes care to do her research on the customs and does footnotes to let you know what the custom was for certain things like postage stamps, etc. Has made me seriously think of moving to England just so I can be near all of this lol. Enjoy!!!

It took me a little bit to get into the flow of this language pattern again but I ultimately enjoyed the plot, the twists and getting an inside view of what motivated Jane Austen during her life. I especially enjoyed reading about the lost manuscripts of hers that were discovered and are now the basis of this series of books.

A most delightful read.

Barron again features Jane Austen as the protagonist in this historical mystery set by the English seaside. When the Austen's carriage tips over on the road to Lyme, Jane is forced to seek help from Geoffrey Sidmouth, the master at High Down Grange, to aid her injured sister. With sister Cassandra now on her way back to London, Jane is left to wander the town of Lyme on her own. Inevitably, she finds a mystery. It seems that someone is smuggling luxury goods from France in the midst of a war between the two countries, and all signs point toward Jane's rescuer, Geoffrey, and his mysterious French cousin, Seraphine.

I love this book series! Stepahnie Barron does a great job portraying Austen and keeping everything believable. It's hard to tell where actual events end and fiction begins.

I liked Barron's first book better but want to read them all. A little slower developing.

Very good; highly recommend if you like mysteries that are well written and clean. It's not written by Jane Austen but written like she would have written.

It was a touch slow for me and seemed to take a while to get to the gist of the story, lots of socializing at first which I thought was odd.
