In the first installment of Stephanie Barron's Being Jane Austen historical mystery series, Jane and the Unpleasantness of Scargrave Manor, we do get to see things from Jane's eyes during her time period. When Jane visited an estate of her close friend Isobel, she learned her husband had died to a mysterious ailment, since they were newly married. As Isobel was grieving, that was the start of her misfortune, when she received hateful missives that claimed she committed adultery and murder. Afraid of the letter might cause her a scandal, she asked for Jane's help. For Jane, she found herself embroiled into a perilous investigation and a trial of clues that lead her to Newgate Prison and the House of Lords trail that might place her in danger.
