Jane and the Madness of Lord Byron

Jane and the Madness of Lord Byron (Jane Austen Mysteries, #10)Jane and the Madness of Lord Byron by Stephanie Barron
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I'm still on my Jane Austen-inspired reading marathon. This mystery was well-written, though the pace did lag a few times. I enjoyed the descriptions of Regency Brighton and Prinny's less-than-dignified behavior.

Jane joins her grieving brother Henry in a seaside holiday, following the death of his wife Eliza. A sweet, young thing gets herself murdered, her corpse deposited in Lord Byron's bed. Yes, it's a frame-up. The goings-on of the ton make the Kardashians and Beyoncé seem rather uninspired. I've said it before, but there really is nothing new under the sun.

I think I'll go back and read this series from the beginning.
