They have Jane Austen as the protagonist and are 'said to be based on a series of recently discovered letters written by Jane detailing some of the more exciting events of her life that didn't make it to her novels' (hehehhehe). They are very well done and most enjoyable. I haven't read "Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman" yet although I have read a few of the sequels by others including 'Eliza" which disappointed me greatly.
I love both Jane Austen and Stephanie Barron, too! I've read several of the Jane Austen mysteries, and really loved them. Haven't heard of the other books mentioned.
I just finished Angels and Demons and The DaVinci Code, both brilliant. I feel like the last person on earth to read DaVinci.
Currently reading Superfoods RX and Sorcery and Cecilia, juvenile fiction involving magic and 2 girls in 19th century England.
