In Walter Satterthwait's Beaumont and Turner Mystery series, Jane Turner is the paid companion of Marjorie Allardyce, by virtue of which she is a houseguest at Maplewhite. She does not like her employer, but she needs the money. Jane is perhaps twenty-three and has a horsy English handsomeness that can seem elegant or stiff, and she usually appears stiff. He hair is pale brown and usually worn in a tight bun. She has extremely beautiful blue eyes behind her wire-rim glasses. With her hair down and in a relaxed mood, she is very attractive. Her letters to her friend Evangeline provide some of the narration: the bulk is from Phil Beaumont.
