Jane Austen is enjoying August, 1806, among Derbyshire’s craggy peaks, sparkling streams, and cavernous gorges. That is, until she discovers the corpse of a young gentleman whose blond curls and delicate features suggest the face of an angel.

More shocking still is the coroner’s revelation: the deceased is no man but a maidservant—clad in the garb of her master, Mr. Charles Danforth of Penfolds Hall. Tess Arnold had ruled the stillroom at Penfolds for many years—until she was labeled a witch and dismissed for indiscretion. Was Tess the prey of a madman loose in the hills, or perchance the cast-off impediment to a gentleman’s marriage?

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Victory Wong | 2/8/2014

    " Very amusing, if you like mysteries with a theme and Austen appeals then you'll like this. It's not to be taken overly seriously but for it's genre it's an easy and amusing read and I found it just right for what I was looking for-- a bit of brain candy to amuse. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Heather | 2/7/2014

    " Not the best book of the series, but it was nice to have the Gentleman Rogue in this one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Joanne Stohl | 2/6/2014

    " I found all the characters rather confusing. Also missed the great number of footnotes. Felt there could have been more. On the plus side Lord Harold is present for most of the book and the ending is a surprise. "
