Fun for Austen Addicts. The Jane Austen Mysteries by Stephanie Barron place Jane at the role of detective in a well-imitated Austen voice. The books are annotated--most of which place accurate historical context, some of which are fabircated in order to secure the author's story. Jane and the Man of the Cloth finds Jane in Lyme, amidst covert business practices, misplaced affections, and even murder. Barron has done her historical research while providing a fun page-turner of what might have been.
Decent enough mysteries (if not terribly sophisticated). Very good attempt at replicating Austen's style, and also good scholarship and background to support the conceit that these are "lost works."
