Jane and the Twelve Days of Christmas:
Being a Jane Austen Mystery
by Stephanie Barron
Amazon | Goodreads

Jane Austen turns sleuth in this delightful murder mystery set over the twelve days of a Regency-Era Christmas party.

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 Jane’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?


Mr Darcy's Christmas Calendar
by Jane Odiwe
Amazon | Goodreads

A novella for the Christmas holidays - Lizzy Benson visits Jane Austen’s house in Chawton, and buys a special advent calendar in the gift shop, but strange things start to happen when she opens up the first door and finds herself back in time with all the beloved characters from her favourite book, Pride and Prejudice. As she finds herself increasingly drawn into an alternate reality, Lizzy discovers not only is Mr Darcy missing from the plot, but Jane Austen has never heard of him. All Lizzy can hope is that she can help to get the story and her own complicated love life back on track before Christmas is over!

  1. Is there another TV mini-series of P&P that I'm not aware of? From the picture of Mr Darcy, I click on IMDB and found that it was released in UK in January of this year. I didn't hear of anyone talking about it on FB and blogs.

    1. Yes, there is yet another rendition. I don't know why it has been low on everyone's radar.

    2. Have you watched it yet, Lady Vee?

      Anyway, thanks for hosting a wonderful Pemberley Ball, Lady Vee. I love the interaction I had with you and your charming guests. I'll be sure to stop by next month to celebrate Miss Austen's birthday. :)
