Jane and the Twelve Days of Christmas by Stephanie Barron

Jane Austen turns sleuth in this delightful murder mystery set over the twelve days of a Regency-Era Christmas party.

Christmas Eve, 1814: Jane Austen has been invited to spend the holiday with family and friends at The Vyne, the gorgeous ancestral home of the wealthy and politically prominent Chute family. As the year fades and friends begin to gather beneath the mistletoe for the twelve days of Christmas festivities, Jane and her circle are in a celebratory mood: Mansfield Park is selling nicely; Napoleon has been banished to Elba; British forces have seized Washington, DC; and on Christmas Eve, John Quincy Adams signs the Treaty of Ghent, which will end a war nobody in England really wanted.
 
Jane, however, discovers holiday cheer is fleeting. One of the Yuletide revelers dies in a tragic accident, which Jane immediately views with suspicion. If the accident was in fact murder, the killer is one of Jane’s fellow snow-bound guests. With clues scattered amidst cleverly crafted charades, dark secrets coming to light during parlor games, and old friendships returning to haunt the Christmas parties, whom can Jane trust to help her discover the truth and stop the killer from striking again?

Jane and the Twelve Days of Christmas

Of course, I was wrong. Along with writing a splendid novel in the style of Jane Austen, Stephanie Barron has crafted a fine mystery that defies even the cleverest reader from solving it. Barron, who is really Denver novelist Francine Matthews, has not lost her touch, and this novel sings with not just a good plot but courtly language and an engaging group of characters worthy of the famed novelist herself. Jane and her family are invited to spend Christmas and its aftermath at an English country home, The Tyne. Despite the pall cast by James and Mary, Jane is determined to have a good time.
