Reviewing Murder in Abbot's Folly reminds me of the funeral of an exemplary person passing. No matter how much one rejoices in a life well lived, there must be sadness; after all, I have read all eight of the extant Marsh and Daughter. With author Amy Myers concentrating so fiercely on her Jack Colby car mysteries, who knows how long it will be before No. 9 comes to the States? Who could read the last sentences without a pang?

Didn't hold my interest.
Peter Marsh and his daughter Georgia find themselves at a Jane Austen festival nearby, and determine to investigate a fairly recent murder (less than three decades old).

There's a murder at the festival, and Peter wonders if it's connected with the historical crime they're investigating. The people concerned seem to have a secret about a valuable collection of Jane Aus ...more

I was irritated by the dryness of the style before I'd read very far and, although Myers is a new author to me, I didn't really become more used it as the pages passed. I thought there was a wonderful story about self-delusion lurking here, but she didn't bring it out. I also read and re-read the denouement and it still makes no sense to me.

Really more like 3 1/2 stars on this one. I have read the other books in this series and this one just wasn't as appealing. Still an enjoyable read - especially for Jane Austen fans - but characters seemed a little flat. And there were too many nicely timed phone calls from just the right people with just the right information. However, I will continue reading the series.

It's a shame, Amy can do much better than this. So don't judge her on this work alone.
