Christmas Eve, 1814: Jane Austen has been invited to spend the holiday with family and friends at the Vyne, the gorgeous ancestral home of the wealthy Chute family. In this 12th adventure (after Jane and the Canterbury Tale), however, Jane discovers that holiday cheer is fleeting. One of the Yuletide revelers dies in a tragic accident, but Jane suspects it was murder—and the killer is one of her fellow snow-bound guests. With clues scattered amidst cleverly crafted charades, dark secrets coming to light during parlor games, and old friendships returning to haunt the Christmas parties, whom can Jane trust to help her discover the truth and stop the killer from striking again?
