Jane and the Twelve Days of Christmas: Being a Jane Austen Mystery
by Stephanie Barron
“Jane, her sister Cassandra, and her mother are spending Christmas with her brother’s family at Steventon Parsonage. They’re invited to visit the Vyne, where the weather and then a murder (or two) keep them houseguests. Jane’s personality and all of those around her shine throughout this story. I’m now planning to start back at the beginning of the series.”—Kim Storbeck, Timberland Regional Library, Tumwater, WA
Also a pick for our colleagues at Penguin:
The Ship of Brides: A Novel
by Jojo Moyes
“Moyes presents a different take on the war bride novel, telling the story of four Australian women who must travel to their husbands in England at the end of World War II. It is a difficult journey under the best circumstances, but for the 650 brides making the trip, it is almost unbearable. These four are the last of the brides to be shipped out on an aircraft carrier.” —Ilene Lefkowitz, Denville Public Library, Denville, NJ
