Stephanie Barron's 'Jane' series features Jane Austen as a Miss Marple type investigator. It's a fun idea, and I've really enjoyed her series over the years. This one was no exception, although I still miss a character who was in many of the previous books - Lord Harold Trowbridge, who's a very Scarlet Pimpernel-y chap.

While I did (as it turned out) guess who the murderer would be quite early on, the twists and turns and red herrings had me going "Huh. Maybe it's NOT who I thought it was!" throughout.

All in all, a fun read.
