I don t often give negative reviews Like, really negative But this book Well, it deserves one from me As a mystery, it s okay, I guess Rather heavy handed and unrealistic.As an homage to Austen, I

one of the good ones My fellow Austen fans, don t waste your time Cute little mystery I picked up between clients at the food pantry Because it s also a thrift store and currently closed, but people keep leaving boxes on the porch stop that, people Shops that aren t open can t sell anything The book is probably of most interest to Janeites and people who enjoy really, really obnoxious characters,

cha Oh happy day The return of Elizabeth Parker Janeite, amateur sleuth, and attendee at this year s Jane Austen Festival in Bath I adore sarcastic and clever Elizabeth Parker I want to be her BFF , and I am so happy to follow my favorite Austen fanatics Elizabeth and Aunt Winnie are definitely fanatics through somemystery and mayhem For those of you who have never read a novel in this series before, they are collection of contemporary cozy mysteries Each one draws some themes and characters from or pays homage to a different Jane Austen novel Murder at Longbourn Pride and Prejudice , Murder on the Bride s Side Sense and Sensibility , Murder Most Persuasive this one may be a little obvious Persuasion , Murder Most Austen Northanger Abbey Our main characters in all four installments are Elizabeth Parker, her boyfriend and former childhood nemesis Peter McGowan , and her feisty and eccentric Aunt Winnie who is a hoot and a half.In the midst of their travels to England and then to Bath, Elizabeth and Aunt Winnie become acquainted with several Jane Austen admirers, festival attendees, and one Austen scholar Professed Austen expert and egomaniac Professor Baines soon becomes a very popular subject amongst all the festival goers One reason is because of his rud theory about how Jane Austen died from a STD ummm what and another reason is because he is soon found dead at the costume ball during the festival Was Professor Baines murdered for his money, his misdeeds, or for his absurd notions about Jane Austen As always with this series, my most favorite aspect of this novel was not the mystery, but all the lovely Jane Austen parallels and allusions Witnessing Aunt Winnie s and Elizabeth s verbal swordplay with Austen quips and quotes never ceases to amaze me Aunt Winnie snorted There is a stubbornness about me that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others My courage always rises with every attempt to intimidate me I was not to be outdone I have had the pleasure of your acquaintance long enough to know That you find great enjoyment in occasionally professing opinions which in fact are not your own, I quoted back True, Aunt Winnie replied with a dip of her red head But, I m resolved on the matter, so keep your breath to cool your porridge Or, in other words, shut your pie hole, she added with a grin page 43In addition, just as I had in her previous novels, I found Tracy Kiely s closed circle of suspects to be intriguing, cleverly drawn, and fully capable of arousing my suspicions They kept me guessing I must admit, I thought I had the mystery figured out this time and alas, I was wrong However, I did wish that the mystery s resolution didn t come about quite so quickly it felt a little rushed and not as fully developed And I must once again submit a request that handsome and sweet Peter McGowan receivepage time Maybe in the next book crosses fingers An excellent blend of mischief, intrigue, humor, and Janeite geekery Murder Most Austen takes readers to a Jane Austen Festival that they will not soon forget I await with great anticipation to see what sort of mystery and murder Elizabeth Parker stumbles onto next I m giving it a three because of the four books I thought the suspects were the most interesting here I understood the logic of the mystery and it ended up being one of the two people I really suspected Overall though I just feel lukewarm towards the book. and the series for that matter There s a repetitiveness to them, and after four books I m not sure it s gonna get any better First off, the person murdered is always a bad guy read they re always better off dead, with a small exceptio I m giving it a three because of the four books I thought the suspects were the most interesting here I understood the logic of the mystery and it ended up being one of the two people I really suspected Overall though I just feel lukewarm towards the book. and the series for that matter There s a repetitiveness to them, and after four books I m not sure it s gonna get any better First off, the person murdered is always a bad guy read they re always better off dead, with a small exception in book three and if there s another bad guy this time just an unlikeable character they will probably end up dead as well, especially if it frees up a handsome good looking, dutiful, cant understand how they ended up with them in the first place, good spouse The police are idiots that miss easy clues and Elizabeth is forever keeping things from them Especially the former in this book, there s no way they could ve missed such a big clue Eliz found at the end I mean come on And if the off chance they had missed it, you d think the murderer would go back and retrieve it The romance is not really there More a problem with the first book, but I just don t feel anything when reading about Elizabeth and Peter Would have been funny if the pesky John had met Peter and had some words between them said, but no That can t happen because And my biggest gripe The book s hardly have any resolution with the side characters plots We heard about that awful paper 1182747 times and we don t hear what becomes of it Was it destroyed What s gonna happen to the money The other suspects The Someone s pregnant So what happened with that And was Izzy just annoyingly weird and friendly What was the point of that characterization if nothing came from it That happened last book with Elizabeth s sister you expect something to develop from that arc but nope. If it has nothing to do with how the murder was done or Elizabeth and Peter s dry relationship, it doesn t need to be wrapped up, and I think that s a serious flaw.Now I did give this book a three, so I ll mention other reason whys I stuck with it Now I m probably one of the few readers that is not a Janeite, and the Austen influences did nothing to entice me.I picked up book one on a whim and ended up finding Elizabeth somewhat enduring despite her obstructing justice tendencies and actually believing They just can t be the murder as a logical reason a cop should let a suspect go I also really like Aunt Winnie and hope she gets featuredThe story taking place in the DMV area is a nice touch, don t read too many books where the characters are from visit DC, Md, and Va and I liked that I recognized a lot of the areas.Also, the books are fairly funny This one actually got a few lol chuckles from me batshit crazy fencing Overall Okay book, decent mystery Just wish it was written a little better Wish the series in general wasn t so predictable too I have been a huge fan of this series, since I picked up the first book month ago That s why I hate to say that this book did not deliver on my high expectations A lot of the subtle Jane Austen quotes that are throughout the other books are obvious in this one this is because there areof them I really think the author could have done without at least half of the quotes I know, I know, there supposed to be at a place that celebrates Jane Austen I just felt like I was constantly bomba I have been a huge fan of this series, since I picked up the first book month ago That s why I hate to say that this book did not deliver on my high expectations A lot of the subtle Jane Austen quotes that are throughout the other books are obvious in this one this is because there areof them I really think the author could have done without at least half of the quotes I know, I know, there supposed to be at a place that celebrates Jane Austen I just felt like I was constantly bombarded by quotes, quotes that didn t seem to have nothing to do with the story I also that Elizabeth Parker really lacks a backbone Screw politeness if someone is because not just rude, but flat out rude they deserve to be told off You get what you give, and in this case she deserved every ounce of hateful remarks she dished out.Also, come ongive me a breakTracy Kiely..Elizabeth was unsure about her relationship with Peter throughout the book..all of sudden they are engaged..and it didn t even happen romantically hello Jane Austen is the epitome of romance.One of the biggest reasons I enjoyed these stories is because Peter was a big part of them..I just don t find the grandmother as likable.I was just disappointed all around and I would suggest just to stop at Murder Most Persuasive.You guysI m aggravated I want my 4 back.P.s The murder mystery was good I Want MORE MURDER Delightful A fun guilty pleasure book that combines my love of Austen and mysteries My favorite of the series so far. Book 4 in this fun series wasof the same story line with Elizabeth landing herself right in the middle of another murder mystery This time she and her beloved Aunt Winnie are at a Jane Austen Festival in Bath, England, which lends the storycharm and a host of other intriguing characters These books are formulaic and predictable, but they are also quick fun reads with lots of Jane Austen quotes and trivia thrown in for pure enjoyment. Not nearly as amusing as I had hoped, mostly just tedious. I absolutely LOVE this series Pride and Prejudice is my favourite book, so when a well written homage series comes along, I m all in, and this has been a wonderful homage to P P.The main character, Elizabeth Parker is just delightful She is clever and funny, and is the perfect heroine for a cozy murder mystery series she is a busy body of the first order, but she is so likable you can t bring yourself to mind or reprimand her.Elizabeth is also a huge Jane Austen fan, so all the books are I absolutely LOVE this series Pride and Prejudice is my favourite book, so when a well written homage series comes along, I m all in, and this has been a wonderful homage to PP.The main character, Elizabeth Parker is just delightful She is clever and funny, and is the perfect heroine for a cozy murder mystery series she is a busy body of the first order, but she is so likable you can t bring yourself to mind or reprimand her.Elizabeth is also a huge Jane Austen fan, so all the books are liberally sprinkled with references to, and quotes from all Austen s books which is a charming and fun side feature While I m not as big a fan of the other Austen books as I am of PP, it s still fun to see the quotes and references get worked in effectively to a modern day story arc.The murder in this book was particularly interesting, as Elizabeth and Aunt Winnie are in Bath for the annual Jane Austen festival, and of course a murder happens, practically right in front of Elizabeth Ergo, she obviously has to put in her oar and help out Needless to say the local constabulary really wish she d butt out, but our Elizabeth is nothing if not determined It s fun This book is so well and cleverly written that it s just really good fun to go along for the ride.I have loved all the books in this series, and think this author has done an excellent job of combining an obvious love for Austen with an original plot set in modern day and with cheeky, entertaining characters you really do like a lot.Highly recommended for fans of Austen looking for an homage set in modern day I have no idea when or where I picked this book up, but I m pretty sure I know why I did I love the works of Jane Austen, and I m also a huge murder mystery lover So, a combination of these things is sure to get added to the to be read pile This is the sort of thing I probably picked up from Goodwill, though I don t know when This book caught me at a good time I was ready for a silly, fluffy cozy mystery, and boy I got one I was in the right mood for this sort of thing, so there were s I have no idea when or where I picked this book up, but I m pretty sure I know why I did I love the works of Jane Austen, and I m also a huge murder mystery lover So, a combination of these things is sure to get added to the to be read pile This is the sort of thing I probably picked up from Goodwill, though I don t know when This book caught me at a good time I was ready for a silly, fluffy cozy mystery, and boy I got one I was in the right mood for this sort of thing, so there were sections that only made my eyes roll, rather than sigh in frustration.There are things that I can t say I like everyone just drops Austen quotations into the text, and even for the attendance at the Austen Festival in Bath where this is set , this seems unnatural and a stretch This is a typical cozy sort of set up, wherein the murder victim is completely unlikable, and while our heroine is keen to figure out who killed him, no one really misses him I understand that this is supposed to be loosely based on Northanger Abby, but I can t say that it shows too well The other trouble is that I accidentally picked up the last book in this series, so we get to see a romantic conclusion, which landed a bit flat to me, as the romantic interest is not really in this book at all Oh well, we ll chalk it up to being my own fault I own one other in this series, and I will read it, but I won t go out of my way for the others
