To Tick off another box ("the main character was a real person") in my challenge, I'm reading "Jane and the Man of The Cloth" by Stephanie Barron. It's the second in her series featuring Jane Austen solving mysteries set in the locations of her now-famous novels. It's written in diary format, in the rather florid style of of the times and concerns the Austen family (Mom, Pop, Jane and her sister, Caroline, going to stay for a time in Lyme. On the way, they suffer a carriage accident, Caroline is injured and the family spends the night at the nearby Grange. The Grange's owner is a solitary, mysterious and somewhat sinister gentleman who both fascinates and repels our gentle Jane. I'm not far enough into it to know what the actual mystery is but the gothic touches are amusing and I'll see where it goes.
