It is a truth universally acknowledged that every good mystery is in need of a brilliant sleuth... A Jane Austen-inspired murder mystery for fans of Richard Osman and Janice Hallett

Welcome to Hampshire, 1795, where a young Jane Austen has her sights set on securing a marriage proposal from the dashing Tom Lefroy at a local ball.

But when a shocking discovery is made - a milliner's lifeless body tucked away in a linen closet - Jane finds herself embroiled in an unexpected murder mystery.

As she races against the clock to clear her beloved brother Georgy's name, Jane uses her sharp wits to navigate the treacherous waters of society, unmasking secrets and unearthing hidden motives along the way.

With every twist and turn, Jane's determination to solve the case deepens.

Because if she fails, her brother will face the ultimate punishment - the hangman's noose...

Jessica Bull grew up in South East London, where she still lives with her husband, two daughters, and far too many pets. She's addicted to stories and studied English Literature at Bristol University, and Information Science at City University, London. She began work as a librarian (under the false impression she could sit and read all day), before becoming a communications consultant. Miss Austen Investigates is her debut novel.

Reviews for Miss Austen Investigates

Richly imagined and wonderfully plotted - a great read -- S.J. Bennett Such a clever idea, pulled off with considerable deftness. The result is a sparkling treat of a read -- Elizabeth Buchan I absolutely adored Miss Austen Investigates! It perfectly captures the world of Jane Austen, and the character of Jane is everything you'd want her to be. Also a wonderfully twisty plot! -- Theresa Howes Such a delight! Highly recommend -- Stacey Thomas I adored it. Miss Austen Investigates is fresh, fiendish and funny. Much like Jane herself -- Jennie Godfrey Jessica Bull has managed to perfectly entwine a classic golden era whodunnit with the life and society of one of our greatest ever writers. -- Kate Wells From the first page it sparkles with wit and warmth -- Jane Dunn Funny, charming, clever and utterly absorbing. I am enchanted -- Ericka Waller
