The first book in a new series, Jane Austen Society and a new author for me. I will read the next story. Erin Coleridge owns a used book store in Kirkbymoorside, North Yorkshire, England. She admires forensic science and knows a great deal about it. Erin often quotes from Jane Austin’s books throughout the book.There were numerous quotes and I felt it was overdone. We are introduced to Detective Inspector Peter Hadley and his friendly, easy-going Sergeant Rashid Jarral who are charged to find Saliva Pemberthy killer.

The Jane Austen Society is in a turmoil as no one likes the current President, Silvia Pemberthy. Matters come to light and the next meeting all members are there. During the Tea break, Silvia is found dead, poison by rat poison. The clues all point to Farnsworth, Erin friend. She decided to look for the murderer so her friend is not convicted. I highly recommend this book.
