Jane and the Unpleasantness at Scargrave Manor
by Stephanie Barron
This is the first in a series of mysteries in which the heroine is our much loved and admired, Jane Austen. Jane tells us of her visit to Scargrave Manor where she intends to spend the Christmas holiday with her friend, Isobel. Isobel is recently married and a lovely ball ends in the murder of her beloved Lord Scargrave. Jane must now search for the truth in order to save her friend. This was a truly engaging story and although I believed I knew who did it, I was still quite surprised by the twist in the end. I had such fun reading this story. I will definitely be purchasing and reading the others in the series.
