A Study In Scarlet Women (The Lady Sherlock Series)

A Study In Scarlet Women (The Lady Sherlock Series)

This gender-bending Sherlock Holmes series is completely clever. Charlotte Holmes has never been comfortable with high society's expectations for well-bred women, so she hatches an escape plan. By posing as Sherlock Holmes, Charlotte uses her incredible intellect to solve mysteries and secures the freedom to live as she pleases. When her family falls under suspicion for a series of London murders, Charlotte puts her skills to work to find the real killer and gathers new friends, and enemies, along the way. There's nothing like a British accent to absorb you into a mystery on audio. More info →

Jane and the Unpleasantness at Scargrave Manor: Being the First Jane Austen Mystery (Being a Jane Austen Mystery Book 1)

Jane and the Unpleasantness at Scargrave Manor: Being the First Jane Austen Mystery (Being a Jane Austen Mystery Book 1)

A narrator with the last name of Reading (yes, really) is just too perfect to narrate this Austen-inspired story. The setup is this: the author asserts that she discovered old journals of Jane Austen, in which it is revealed that Austen was once an amateur sleuth (who had a bad habit of stumbling into crime scenes). In this first installment, Jane's dear friend Isobel marries a much older man who tragically dies shortly after their wedding. It is subsequently revealed that his death was not natural, and that his nephew and heir had also engaged the affections of the young widow. I enjoyed encountering familiar Austen themes in this wholly different genre, and the way the author incorporated fragments of her novels in the mystery. I was smitten and entertained by Jane's uncanny ability to observe and judge those around her. The skills that make her an excellent novelist prove to be useful for detective work, too. More info →
