A novel by

 
 
A JANE AUSTEN ENCOUNTER is Book Three in The Elizabeth and Richard Mystery Series. BOOK DESCRIPTION English professors Elizabeth and Richard are celebrating twenty years of marriage with their dream vacation - visiting all Jane Austen's homes in England. But not even the overpowering personality of their Oxford guide or the careful attentions of their new friends can keep the tour free from lurking alarms. When a box of old documents is donated to the Jane Austen Centre in Bath, Richard volunteers to help sort through it. Later that night, however, he finds the Centre's director bleeding on her office floor. Could the valuable letter that has gone missing really lead them to new revelations about Jane Austen's unfinished manuscript The Watsons? Encounter Jane Austen with Elizabeth and Richard on their tour. Visit all the sites so redolent of Jane Austen and her characters in the beautiful city of Bath. Stay in the Chawton House Library and visit the charming Chawton cottage where Jane's writing flowered, and the nearby Steventon church where her father was rector and her own faith developed. Stand by her grave in Winchester Cathedral and enjoy your time at the lovely country estate of Godmersham. But don't let your guard down. Evil lurks even in the genteel world of Jane Austen. REVIEW "I've always been a fan of the traditional cozy murder mystery such as Agatha Christie wrote, or Dorothy L. Sayers, or Margery Allingham - the sort of story portrayed on A & E or PBS Mystery Theatre. So I was excited to discover a modern-day voice that has captured that fast-paced and snappy dialogue that you would find in a Tommy & Tuppence whodunit. That voice is Donna Fletcher Crow, award-winning novelist." - Christine Lindsay, Twilight of the British Raj Series
