Jane Austen turns sleuth in this delightful murder
mystery set over the twelve days of a Regency-Era Christmas
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 Janeâ€™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?
