This is a superb retelling of the Jane Austen novel in which the house at Mansfield Park becomes the scene of one murder after another. Here is a new and surprising Fanny Price: forthright, ambitious, scheming and downright untrustworthy. What could possibly happen to a character like that? And how will the fortunes of the inhabitants of Mansfield Park be changed with the discovery of a dead body early one morning?
The folks at Beautiful Books Ltd sent me a review copy for Jane in June (thanks to author Lynn Shepherd for hooking me up via BBL, and for doing an awesome interview and Dear Jane letter!), and I thoroughly enjoyed myself reading it. I hadn't intended to offer this book as a giveaway, since I liked it (and since my copy has seen some beach days by now), but I couldn't resist offering someone a copy to tie in with Velvet's Mansfield Park Murder Mystery weekend. (How could I pass that up?)
So since I want my copy, I'm just going to buy someone theirs... Want? Just fill out this form and you're in. INTERNATIONAL. Ends July 5th.
