From the Inside Flap

In her seventh captivating adventure, Jane Austen finds her crime-solving mettle put to the test in a confounding case of intrigue, murder, and high treason. Among the haunted ruins of an ancient abbey, Jane is drawn into a shadow world of dangerous secrets and traitorous hearts where not only her life is at stake--but the fate of England.
Jane and the Ghosts of Netley
As Jane Austen stands before the abandoned ruins of Netley Abbey, she imagines that ghosts really do haunt the centuries-old monastery. But the green-cloaked figure who startles her is all too human and he bears an unexpected missive from Lord Harold Trowbridge, one of the British government's most trusted advisers--and a man who holds a high place in Jane's life.Trowbridge tells Jane about a suspected traitor in their midst--and the disastrous consequences if she succeeds. But is Sophia Challoner, a beautiful widow with rumored ties to Emperor Bonaparte, really an agent of the enemy?
Dispatched to Netley Lodge, Jane sets about gaining the confidence of the mysterious and intriguing lady even as Trowbridge's grim prediction bears fruit: a British frigate is set afire and its shipwright found with his throat cut.It's clear that someone is waging a clandestine war of terror and murder. But before Jane can follow the trail of conspiracy to its source and unmask a calculating killer, the cold hand of murder will fall mercilessly yet again--and suddenly Jane may find herself dying for her country.
Elegantly intriguing, Jane and the Ghosts of Netley is a beautifully crafted novel of wit, character, and suspense that transports Jane and her many fans into a mystery of truly historical proportions--and a case thatwill test the amateur sleuth's true colors under fire.

I can hardly believe this series is distributed only in America and is barely known in the UK. The Jane Austen mystery books are great - rattling good fun. The aspiring Regency lady novelist turns amateur sleuth.

In 'The Ghosts of Netley' the Napoleonic War is raging and Jane's own brother is a captain on a ship of the line caught up in the hostilities. A shipbuilder is found with his throat cut in the burned out wreckage of the vessel which was under construction in his Southampton shipyard. Our modest heroine, country parson's daughter,becomes embroiled in the dangerous arena of murder and espionage.

Barron has captured Jane Austen's character and voice and the zeitgeist of Regency England splendidly. Jane is brave but vulnerable, eternally disappointed in love and under the thumb of a domineering mother like so many of her fictional heroines. Barron has also succeeded in crafting a very good mystery with red herrings which keeps the reader guessing until the final page.

I shall certainly be reading more.

This is the seventh book in the Jane Austen Mystery Series by Stephanie Barron.

In a newly discovered secret journal, Jane Austen documents her adventures as an amateur sleuth. In the fall of 1808, shortly after the untimely death of her beloved sister in law Elizabeth, Jane has her two young nephews staying with her at her temporary residence, Castle Square in Southampton. In an attempt to entertain the two teenagers, she takes them to explore the ruins of an English abbey, where a mysterious man gives her a message from her most trusted friend, Lord Harold Trowbridge. Once again Lord Harold asks for her help, this time to spy on the new owner of Netley Lodge, the beautiful and dangerous Sophia Challoner. When a British frigate is set afire and a man is found murdered, Lord Harold suspects Sophia, but Jane has her doubts, so together they begin to investigate. The stakes are too high, as the future of the war depends upon finding the traitor responsible for the crimes and stopping Napoleon's invasion. Although extremely dangerous, the investigation brings them closer and Jane realises that the Gentleman Rogue may return her affections and happiness can be within her reach.

This series is excellent and this seventh novel is one of the best so far. Stephanie Barron has, once again, created a gripping mystery plot, brilliantly set in Austen's time, with a very convincing Jane as its heroine. The descriptions of the haunted ruins of Netley Abbey are beautiful and the atmosphere fantastic. As in all the novels of the series, the everyday life of the time is excellent, drawn with beautiful imagery and historical detail. The well developed characters are based on the types of characters created by Austen herself, and thus are very convincing and typical of their time.

Found this and other titles by chance. Attracted to this title due to it's local connection to me. That said it was a very enjoyable read, faultlessly researched and although it is a style of literature I have avoided all my life I have very much enjoyed reading it.

This is the sixth book in Stephanie Barron's series featuring a sleuthing Jane Austen. Obviously the stories are fictional, but they are woven cleverly into the story we know of Jane Austen's life. Phrases appear throughout the book, which will seem familiar to anyone with a good knowledge of Austen's work and I think Barron often has Mrs Bennet in mind when writing Mrs Austen! The mystery plot is quite good, if a little gruesome, and I love the character of Lord Harold - The Gentleman Rouge - who has appeared in previous stories. Barron also provides us with a strong cast of supporting characters, which make this an enjoyable way to while away a few hours.
