Murder Most Austen

A Mystery
Tracy Kiely

A murder at a Jane Austen Festival piques amateur detective Elizabeth Parker's interest in the quick-witted latest from Kiely (Murder Most Persuasive, 2011). In Bath to attend the festival with her Aunt Winnie, Elizabeth, a fervent Janeite, is offended by comments made by a Professor Baines about the "true cause" of Jane's death. When Baines is found stabbed to death during a costume ball, it appears that his outlandish theories have finally pushed one Jane Austen fan too far. Or could it be one of his disgruntled family members? It's up to Elizabeth to find out. A charming read for cozy fans.
