My first 5* review book of 2022 is being published today by Soho Press, and I am thrilled to be part of the Book Tour.
Jane and the Year Without a Summer by Stephanie Barron is the 14th book in the Being a Jane Austen Mystery Series – though the first I have read. This wonderful historical fiction is a mix of fascinating information about current world events of that time, a great mystery and historical facts about Jane Austen. I loved every moment!
