    Just so-so.

    Tries a little too hard to imitate Jame Austen and becomes unnecessarily vetbose. Plot was a bit weak also. Finished it but it was kind of a plod.

    Another fine Jane Austen mystery

    I've enjoyed all of the Jane Austen mysteries by Ms Barron. Although I will miss Lord Trowbridge nearly as much as Jane, this was a very enjoyable mystery. I feel as though I live in Regency England each time I open one of these books. And they always leave me with the desire to reread Austen's books. Truly and enjoyable read.

    gem of a historical amateur sleuth

    Edward Austin, Jane¿s wealthy brother, possesses the freehold of every house in Chawton Village; he gives his sister and their mother the cottage of the late bailiff, dispossessing is wife which made the villagers irate. The female Austins believe the renovated cottage will make a happy home for them, a new beginning of sorts. On their first day in their new home, a lawyer visits Jane with a Bengal trunk that contains the letters, dairies, and miscellaneous papers of Lord Harold Trowbridge, the only man Jane ever loved.--- Realizing that the trunk contains items that people would kill to own, she has it taken to the basement where they find a dead body. That same night while dining at the magistrate¿s house, someone steals the trunk and a laborer is arrested for the crime. A new arrival Justin Thrace arouses gossip and suspicion because he claims to be the Earl of Holbrook¿s heir. He and his half-sister Imogen are riding when she is thrown from her horse and dies because a thorn was placed beneath the saddle. Justin runs from the law after people accuse him of placing the thorn there. Jane learns that the corpse in the cellar was placed there by Mr. Hinton. As she makes inquiries she thinks the real killer has yet to surface.--- Stephanie Barron gives a realistic portrayal of how impoverished genteel folks lived in Regency England. The investigation into the murders enables Jane to temporarily take her mind off the death of her beloved Harold. Though somewhat overly scattered with the motive coming late, the who-done-it is cleverly conceived inside of a fast-paced plot populated by eccentric likable characters making for a gem of a historical amateur sleuth.--- Harriet Klausner
