Emma everyone's favorite meddling matchmaker turns detective in this cozy mystery. You get to see all the characters from Austen's Emma from the chatty good humored Miss Bates, the sweet and simple Harriet, everyone's favorite hypochondriac Mr.Woodhouse, the detestable Eltons and even Mrs. Jane Churchill and Frank Churchill. I really loved this book and read it in one sitting. I really loved the writing and how the author kept all the characters true to JA's creations. This is one of the best JAFF authors I have ever read when it comes to keeping the characters true to the originals even with the murders. You don't need to read Emma to enjoy this book but reading Emma before will maximize your enjoyment of the story and characters. I loved seeing all the characters for Emma again. Everything the author had the characters do and say fit the original characters even with this being a mystery. I found this book laugh out loud funny. Mr. Woodhouse has some of the best lines. He was one of my favorite characters in the original book and he was in this one too. I enjoyed the mystery and thought it was very well done. I was shocked at who committed the crime. I loved Emma in this book and think that marriage and motherhood have matured her. But her imagination is as strong and fanciful as ever. I loved seeing Emma and Knightley happy in their marriage as well has all the other couples well of course not the horrible Eltons. Mr. Knighley's thoughtfulness and love for Emma is so sweet.I love the note at the end where the author tells how she was inspired to write this story. Overall if you love Emma Jane Austen, and murder I highly recommend this book. Rating: 5 out of 5 Content: PG Heat Rating: Clean
