    The Dashwood family is thrown into disarray when Mr. Dashwood passes away while working in his study late at night. An outdated will means that his wife and daughters, Elinor, Marianne, and Margaret, must vacate the family home and turn it over to their half-brother and his unsympathetic wife, and Mr. Dashwood's successful private investigative practice is shut down, leaving the Dashwoods without an income and Marianne, her father's protégé, without her passion. Everything changes when Elinor, an aspiring chemist, discovers a potential poison in her father's final cup of tea, leading the Dashwoods to follow an ever-deepening mystery and expose his assassin. This second installment in the Jane Austen Murder Mysteries is an absolute treat—though the original plot, characters, and time period remain mostly intact, the added elements of a classic murder mystery feel surprisingly organic, and Price's affection for the source material is obvious. There are still balls and gowns and longing looks, but there are also lock picking and opium dens, bullet wounds and big reveals. A thrilling Regency romp worth investigating. Grades 9-12.
