    In this second entry in a series featuring Jane Austen as a detective, following Jane and the Unpleasantness at Scargrave Manor , Barron has delivered another rousing adventure, this time set in one of Austen's favorite locations, the seacoast town of Lyme. After the Austen family's carriage is overturned in foul weather, they're forced to rely on the hospitality of the mysterious Mr. Sidmouth. When settled at last in their vacation cottage, Jane is quickly drawn into the strange affairs of the town's citizens. Because its secluded location, Lyme has become a hotbed for smugglers, particularly a notorious robber dubbed the Man of the Cloth for his propensity for smuggling high-quality silk. Jane sets out to determine the smuggler's identity, and high on her list of suspects is the attractive if irritable Mr. Sidmouth. Barron's winning combination of romance and intrigue is well nigh irresistible. Strong plots and stylish writing are quickly becoming the hallmarks of this well-crafted series. Excellent entertainment. ((Reviewed January 1 & 15, 1997)) Copyright 2000 Booklist Reviews
