A treat for all Austen fans

The Jane Austen Centre in Bath is a wonderful place. Not only does it combine the words Jane Austen and Bath, but it has recently begun posting its first online novella. There Must be Murder is a mystery set in Regency Bath and it also happens to be a sequel to Northanger Abbey.

A new chapter will be posted each month, and the first one, Winter Pleasures, is available now. It's written by Margaret C. Sullivan, whose book, The Jane Austen Handbook: A Sensible yet Elegant Guide to Her World will be out this spring. The illustrations are by Cassandra Chouinard
