This is a mystery series whose protagonist is a Jane Austen fanatic. There are lots of quotes and references to the grand dame, so beware. I really liked it; it has a bit of a literary air wrapped in a cozy mystery cape. ( )

Good things--surprise ending and great literary quotes.

Bad things--will someone PLEASE tell me why there have to be these women who are so convinced that they know more than the police do and have to do their jobs for them? And then there are the police who decide to discuss murders in a nice cosy little teashop with all of the residents of the town listening in?

Yes--the heroine of this one was worse than others, but still....No more of this series for me! ( )

A cute mystery. Elizabeth goes to her Aunt Winnie's B&B for a New Year's Eve murder mystery party, but instead of an actor "dying" there is a real murder. Everyone at the event is a suspect and Elizabeth begins to investigate. ( )

Fall is coming, and with it crackling fireplaces, hot mugs steaming with comfort, a favorite chair and good books for long reads through dark and stormy nights. Murder at Longbourn by Tracy Kiely is the perfect companion to this scene: a mystery that cleverly combines the best of Jane Austen and the English cozy.

Murder at Longbourn is a well-crafted murder mystery at a Cape Cod inn, where a theatrical murder mystery weekend becomes the real thing.

Epigraph
"The whole of this unfortunate business," said Doctor Lystor, "has been the result of Pride and Prejudice."
-- Frances Burney, Cecelia
Dedication
For my mother, Elizabeth
First words
It would be dramatic to say that as soon as I saw Aunt Winnie's letter I had a premonition of danger -- a shiver of apprehension, perhaps, or even a sudden feeling of dread.
