Murder Most Austen by Tracy Kiely (Minotaur)
You don't have to be a Jane Austen fan to enjoy this delightful mystery set in Bath at an Austen conference—but you probably will be when you finish. Elizabeth Parker and her aunt are dedicated Janeites who plan to make the most of their opportunity with like-minded folks. Enjoyment is shoved to the back burner, however, when murder rears its ugly head. There are plenty of suspects who would have liked to do away with the obnoxious Professor Baines who claims to expose sordid hidden meanings in the Austen novels. Amateur sleuth Elizabeth has her work cut out for her.
