Jane and the Twelve Days of Christmas: being a Jane Austen Mystery by Stephanie Barron

Jane and the Twelve Days of Christmas by Stephanie Barron features a charming but feisty heroine, a mysterious Rochester-like hero, and a clever murder mystery. Jane and her family are portrayed in a realistic way, and Barron even manages to write in a 19th-century style without ruining it by using jarring modern expressions.

There are also interesting snippets of information about Jane and her family and times, such as information about the game of billiards. I didn't like this book as much as the first one that I read by this author, but I hope to read the whole series soon.
