Description

Perfect for fans of Laura Levine and Stephanie Barron, Elizabeth Blake's Jane Austen Society mystery debut is a mirthfully morbid merger of manners and murder.

In this Austen-tatious debut, antiquarian bookstore proprietor Erin Coleridge uses her sense and sensibility to deduce who killed the president of the local Jane Austen Society.

Erin Coleridge's used bookstore in Kirkbymoorside, North Yorkshire, England, is a meeting place for the villagers and, in particular, for the local Jane Austen Society. At the Society's monthly meeting, matters come to a head between the old guard and its young turks. After the meeting breaks for tea, persuasion gives way to murder with extreme prejudice when president Sylvia Pemberthy falls dead to the floor. Poisoned? Presumably, but by whom? And was Sylvia the only target?

Handsome but shy Detective Inspector Peter Hemming and charismatic Sergeant Rashid Jarral arrive at the scene. The long suspect list includes Sylvia's lover Kurt Becker and his tightly wound wife Suzanne. Or, perhaps, the killer was Sylviaâ's own cuckolded husband, Jerome. Among the many Society members who may have had her in their sights is dashing Jonathan Alder, who was heard having a royal battle of words with the late president the night before.

Then, when Jonathan Alder narrowly avoids becoming the next victim, Farnsworth (the town's cat lady) persuades a seriously time-crunched Erin to help DI Hemming. But the killer is more devious than anyone imagines.

Fun & entertaining, but not P&P

I enjoyed listening to this book. I originally purchased thinking it would be a modern retelling of Pride & Prejudice based on the title but that is not the case. The P&P characters are mentioned throughout but it is a completely different story. At first I was disappointed, but it began to grow on me. I enjoyed the story & the characters and the mystery. The narrator did a good job too.

Ok but...

This is an ok book. The characters are engaging and the story is interesting. Erin makes novice mistakes several times. I'll get the next one in the series to see if it gets better.

Very fun cozy mystery

I enjoy mysteries that engage without over sensationalizing or sex. That element is for a different genre. This ticked all the boxes of suspense, empathy, good and strong feminine characters with friendship at the center. Yes. Well done. The only challenge is the narrators substantial increase in volume when giving voice to a character. It required frequent adjustment of the volume on my older device.
