Product Description
For everyone who loves Jane Austen...a marvelously entertaining new series that turns the incomparable author into an extraordinary sleuth!

On a visit to the estate of her friend, the young and beautiful Isobel Payne, Countess of Scargrave, Jane bears witness to a tragedy. Isobel's husband--a
gentleman of mature years--is felled by a mysterious and agonizing ailment. The Earl's death seems a cruel blow of fate for the newly married Isobel. Yet the
bereaved widow soon finds that it's only the beginning of her misfortune...as she receives a sinister missive accusing her and the Earl's nephew of adultery--and murder. Desperately afraid that the letter will expose her to the worst sort of scandal, Isobel begs Jane for help. And Jane finds herself embroiled in a perilous investigation that will soon have her following a trail of clues that leads all the way to Newgate Prison and the House of Lords--a
trail that may well place Jane's own person in the gravest jeopardy.

What a lovely book to read during my holidays! It took some time to get used to the oldish language but after couple of chapters I didn't have to think about it anymore and the reading became quite fluent. This was fashinating book, interesting story, very enjoyable!

I do have to get the second part on my hands too :)

Oh, thank you for this wonderful surprise, Chania! And what is more, I happen to read Jane Austin (in Finnish) by Carol Shields just now. So I'll read this book very soon, I think.

Oh no, it was not very soon at all that I read the book! Too many books and too little time even after my retirement.

This was a pleasant reading in spite of the oldish language and partly just because of it! Life was not easy then but for a few.

This is my book #87 in the Reduce Mount TBR 2018 -challence by Dove-i-libri.

What do I see? Three of my favourite bookcrossers have already read this book - can't be a bad one. Greetings, everybody, and thanks for sharing it. I visited the Jane Austen Centre in Bath this May. Will try to read the book a bit sooner than Annelis did...
