Publisher's Summary

It is July 1809, and Jane is just beginning to emerge from her grief over her lost love, Lord Harold Trowbridge. When, moving with her mother and sister into a cottage on her brother's estate in Chawton, Hampshire, she begins to revise one of her first manuscripts, determined to honor Lord Trowbridge's confidence in her work, a corpse is suddenly discovered in the cellar. Who killed Henry French? And what does his death have to do with the stolen Chawton Emeralds? Jane can't keep her mind off the mystery, even though someone who will stop at nothing to secure a fortune is lurking just out of sight.


What the Critics Say

"As usual, Barron has masterfully imitated Austen's voice." (Publishers Weekly)
"Barron's latest, featuring plenty of drawing-room intrigue and long-buried family secrets, will continue to please both historical-mystery readers and the ever-going Austen fan club." (Booklist)

OK, Good, and Great.

It's OK with me if a good book is the step child of a great one. The Jane series is very satisfying. Although I'm not crazy about the narrator, I love the pace and language, and I will be delighted when another comes along.
