Jane and the Man of the Cloth, the second book in the Jane Austen Mysteries, went off on a slow start, but once Jane made up her mind to find out the identity of the Reverend (leader of a group of smugglers) things got infinitely more interesting. Barron skilfully brings the early 1900s to life with her vivid desriptions. The editor's notes help readers understand allusions to Lyme or events of the time. Smugglers, French royalists, murder, betrayal; it's all to be found in this book. The sharp wit and intelligence the main character portrays are what we expect of the great Jane Austen. And when a person of her intellect and shrewd understanding of people and human nature bends her will to solve a mystery, the question is not if, but rather when she will succeed.

I quite enjoyed Jane and the Man of the Cloth, so I will definitely be reading Jane and the Wandering Eye!
