Lady Jayne Disappears Review


 About the Book

When Aurelie Harcourt's father dies in debtor's prison, he leaves her just two things: his wealthy family, whom she has never met, and his famous pen name, Nathaniel Droll. Her new family greets her with apathy and even resentment. Only the quiet houseguest, Silas Rotherham, welcomes her company.

When Aurelie decides to complete her father's unfinished serial novel, writing the family into the story as unflattering characters, she must keep her identity as Nathaniel Droll hidden while searching for the truth about her mother's disappearance--and perhaps even her father's death.

Author Joanna Davidson Politano's stunning debut set in Victorian England will delight readers with its highly original plot, lush setting, vibrant characters, and reluctant romance. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

I am completely unsure on how to review this book. There were things I really liked and there were times when I couldn't get into the story. I like the mystery part of things and trying to figure out Lady Jayne. I wasn't shocked by the ending or the grand finale but I was okay with that. Aurelie is such a unique character, I never knew what she would say next. At times it was difficult to follow her thought process. For a debut novel this book really was quite good. I give it four stars because at times it was a bit slow. I do look forward to more books by the author!

Four stars.
