    The latest Jane Austen mystery (see Jane and the Madness of Lord Byron) is a great entry

    In 1813 Jane Austen stays at the estate of her brother First Magistrate Edward in Kent. At the same time, Widow Adelaide Fiske marries Wellington's staff member Captain Andrew MacAllister. However, on Pilgrim's Way in Canterbury, the corpse of Adelaide's first husband Curzson Fiske is found; the problem is he allegedly died several years ago.

    Edward leads the investigation into the murder of a "dead man". However, it is Jane who finds clues while pondering why the first spouse came to the wedding of his wife to another man, but said nothing but he left something behind for his widow. While Edward frets one of his friends is the killer, the culprit observes Jane getting close to solving the Canterbury Tale homicide.

    The latest Jane Austen mystery (see Jane and the Madness of Lord Byron) is a great entry that combines a strong amateur sleuth with insight into the relationships between the extended Austen family members. Part of the fun in this wonderful series is trying to match up the support characters with the novels. The story line is fast-paced from the moment a stunned bride learns of a strange commoner visiting her nuptials and never slows down until Jane and the killer confront one another.

    Another winner by Stephanie Barron!

    Another Jane Austen with great period detail. It is nice to see familiar characters as they have grown and a delight to see that Ms. Barron keeps as much as possible to the accuracy of Jane, her history and her family. My only regret is that the books are now being published/printed in paperback. I do miss the hardcovers, but that will not stop me from reading them!
    I certainly recommend this book for people who are interested in history, Jane Austen, cozy mysteries, and satisfactory endings!
