Will it make sense? Death and Sensibility

A Jane Austen Society Mystery

by Elizabeth Blake

#DeathandSensibility #NetGalley.

Death and Sensibility follows on this author’s first in the series which was Pride, Prejudice and Poison. I somehow missed that one but will go back and read it. It was no problem to begin with the second book however.

As can easily be deduced from the books’ titles, Jane Austen references feature in the stories. I enjoyed these. I also liked that the book’s protagonist, Erin Coleridge, shares a last name with a poet and owns a bookstore. Additionally, I was delighted to spend time in York.

Erin and several of her friends are visiting in order to attend a Jane Austen convention. When the disliked keynote speaker is murdered, Erin cannot resist sleuthing even though her police officer boyfriend asks her not to. There are a good number of suspects.

On the romance side, there is a schoolteacher who is also interested in Erin. Which of these two men is the Austen like man who might be best for her?

This is a novel that cozy lovers who enjoy a bit of romance are sure to enjoy! It was an easy and fun read.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
