it was amazing

Excellent! This latest offering in the Jane Austen mystery series was well written, highly entertaining, and kept me guessing. I have read all of the books in this series and have highly enjoyed it and would recommend it. The first couple of books are a bit on the quiet side but once you get caught up in the series and the recurring characters, you can't help but be sucked in. I think Madness had an even more engrossing mystery than usual, not to mention Jane's brother Henry is greatly involved, which is always fun, and a reappearance from an excellent character from Jane's past. I am always intrigued by the lifestyles of the wealthy, highborn, royal classes of England and this story has lots of scandal to fill the pages with intrigue. In this way, I find it similar to Lauren Willig's entertaining Pink Carnation series which are set in similar times.
Knowing that Jane Austen's life is drawing near to its end, I'm glad to read that yet another Jane mystery will be written and I'll look forward to more time with this excellent fictional Jane.
