Editorial Reviews

Laurel Ann Nattress
Northanger Abbey sequels are as scarce as a comely heiress. I can count them on one hand. There Must Be Murder, by Margaret C. Sullivan is a welcome addition to the slim collection. Sullivan has captured the charm and endearing delight of Austen’s characters beautifully, added new ones rich in folly and nonsense, and a Newfoundland dog named MacGuffin who steals every scene. The numerous illustrations by Cassandra Chouinard are enchanting.
Janite Deb
The illustrations by Cassandra Chouinard are a perfect accompaniment to this fun read – who can resist a few hours with Henry Tilney! ~ highly recommended.
Jane Greensmith
The illustrations by Cassandra Chouinard are absolutely charming. A quick read, There Must Be Murder, is a treat for Janeites and a must for those of us who are consider themselves players on Team Tilney.
Vic Sanborn
Fans of Jane Austen will recognize Margaret as the editrix of Austenblog, the longest surviving Jane Austen blog on the blogosphere, and as one whose knowledge of Jane and the Regency period is that of an expert. And thus the details set down in this tale are accurate and true to the time, including the use of arsenic in beauty potions. Margaret’s humor also shines through, and I found myself turning page after page until I had finished the story in one sitting.
Meredith Esparza
5 out of 5 stars. It is my sincerest wish that this charming novella is the start of a wonderful series about the many adventures, misadventures, mysteries that befall Henry, Catherine MacGuffin, and Matthews!

    A Northanger Abbey sequel that is much more than "nice"

    NORTHANGER ABBEY sequels are as scarce as a comely heiress. I can count them on one hand. THERE MUST BE MURDER, by Margaret C. Sullivan is a welcome addition to the slim collection. At 118 pages and twelve chapters it qualifies as a novella. I am not complaining. At all. I will take a Jane Austen sequel continuing the story after the wedding of our heroine in the making Catherine Morland and Austen's most underrated hero Henry Tilney without hesitation, but with a wary eye. The story has a promising beginning. The tone is pleasing and the reverence to canon characters a relief. We find Catherine and Henry comfortably settled as newlyweds at Woodston parsonage in Gloucestershire. Ever the thoughtful romantic, Henry proposes that they celebrate the anniversary of their first meeting in Bath with a visit to the city. Once there they are reunited with Henry's sister Eleanor and introduced to her new husband Lord Whiting. Also in attendance at the Lower Rooms is Henry's father the dour autocrat General Tilney, his recently widowed wealthy neighbor Lady Beauclerk, her twenty-seven year-old unmarried daughter Judith, and her husband's nephew and heir Sir Philip Beauclerk. Catherine is happy to dance the night away, while family differences bubble and stew. As Henry and Catherine continue to enjoy the delights of Bath attractions, they begin to learn that there are suspicious circumstances involving the death of General Tilney's neighbor Sir Arthur Beauclerk brought forward by his widowed sister Fanny Findlay. She believes his death had not been natural - and it appears that many in this unhappy family would benefit from his early demise. The suspects stack up like winter cord-wood ready for the fire. Is it the wife, Lady Beauclerk, eager to be free of his miserly pocketbook? The daughter, Miss Judith, squashed by parental oppression? The dissipated nephew, Sir Philip, prohibiting his uncle from changing the will? Or the sister, Mrs. Findlay, ready to bump off all the heirs in line before her to regain the family fortune? Catherine's Gothic inspired imagination may serve her well as a detective, if Henry can temper her impulses and guide them to a logical conclusion. THERE MUST BE MURDER had me hooked at Henry reading UDOLPHO, Anne Radcliffe's classic Gothic novel, to his young bride in bed. Brilliant. It is exactly how I envisioned their marriage would continue: Henry romantically feeding his wife's passion for a horrid novel and Catherine finding new insights from the text from his patient and humorous explanations. The story cleverly builds, slowly layering in new characters, revealing family conflicts, planting evidence. Along the way we revisit Milsom-street, Beechen Cliff, the Pump-room, Laura Place and all the highlights of Catherine's first adventure in the beautiful Georgian-era city. Sullivan has captured the charm and endearing delight of Austen's characters beautifully, added new ones rich in folly and nonsense, and a Newfoundland dog named MacGuffin who steals every scene. The numerous illustrations by Cassandra Chouinard are enchanting. My only disappointment was in the length. It was over much too quickly. Austen's Henry Tilney would have been annoyed, claiming this shortcoming was "nice." We will agree. Laurel Ann, Austenprose

    A fun read to help survive the real world

    This is a fun read, espcially for anyone looking for JAFF. The young Tilneys read Udolpho every night before blowing out the candle. But when they go to Bath for their anniversary it becomes a struggle for Catherine to hold her imagination at bay. This is a book to read when the world makes sleep unattainable and the rest of the house is quiet and dark.

    This is one fun, short read. Nothing too complicated. Friends of Jane Austen cannot disapprove.
