Hello PemberLittens! It's time for #JaneandtheExcellentReadalong discussion. I love this fits in with my #SeptemberbytheSea and Fictional Hangover Book Club Challenge - #YoHoHoAhoyMateys. While technically they were smugglers, but we love a #TenuousLink. Anywhoozle if you haven't finished reading and don't want be Spoiled come back later.

There be Spoilers in the Comments ‼️☠️

Crinoline_Laphroaig 1. Jane going out to investigate in the middle of the the night. Playing the hapless hysterical female with Mr. Crawford and then stealthy maken her way to the beach.

And of course anytime Lord Harold shows up.

2. "The only consolation in foul weather is to turn one‘s lock upon the street, and settle in by the fire with tea and a good book -"

Crinoline_Laphroaig 3. Jane's Father: “Are you intending to pay a call, my dear? And in the middle of the night?” How he respects her judgment and just lets her get on with things.

4. Jane falling asleep in the cave. Also I'd forgotten how active she was in this book - Ducking through neighbors yards, following men through a cavern, knocking out the murderer.

5. Lyme's Fossils. It was interesting to Google and see pictures.

6. Still contemplating this one.

Crinoline_Laphroaig 7. Depends - are there snakes in England? If so I'm not going in the creepy cave. Someone else will have to solve the mystery. I'll just take a nice gentle stroll on the beach and look for Fossils.

BarkingMadRead I‘ll come back to this later, I started late so I‘m not done yet! 2mo
Ruthiella 1. That kiss in the jail! 2. No quote 3. Sidmouth was my fav. 4. The resolution of the mystery surprised me! 5. It was interesting to learn about British support for anti-Napoleon espionage. 6. Jane is a constant month-maybe May? 7. I would definitely prefer to collect fossils over exploring a dark cave! 😂 Thanks for hosting! 🙏 2mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @Ruthiella I love how we know Jane's story but author manages to fit in this little flirtations. 2mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig Iteresting Blog post on Author's Website. It's about someone who tried to steal ths story & make movie. http://francinemathews.blogspot.com/2018/10/bookbub-special-jane-and-man-of-clot... the sum of it was: She-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named informed me self-righteously that I did not own Jane Austen! I did not own history! I did not own the private journals Austen had penned two hundred years ago... ⬇️

Crinoline_Laphroaig "At which I tumbled to the appalling truth: She-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named thought Jane's diaries recording her detective adventures, which I invented purely as a framing device for a series of mystery novels, actually existed.

She'd never seen them, of course. She had no idea where said journals might be archived. She'd just read a paperback edition of Jane and the Man of the Cloth and assumed it was all true." ?

i.besteph Hi can you please remove me from the tag list? I‘ll have to read this some other time 😅 2mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @i.besteph will do! 2mo
MoonWitch94 I loved the month comparison. I think it‘s pretty valid. I would classify Jane as a Spring month….perhaps May like @Ruthiella suggested! 2mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @MoonWitch94 May yes! My friend Claire on Instagram said April because it contains multitudes and she felt Jane has them to. 2mo
MoonWitch94 @Crinoline_Laphroaig OH!! That‘s a good point, too! 2mo
mollyrotondo 1. Loved Jane exploring the cave. It was so tense! 2. I unfortunately returned my book to the library already so I don‘t have a quote to pull 3. My favorite character when she pops up is Eliza. She just as strong as Jane and is such a good influence! 4. I was surprised that the captain died in the middle of the book. I thought he was the Reverend lol. 5. I learned so much about smuggling and how those towns were set up that way forever ago. 2mo
mollyrotondo 6. I agree that Jane seems like an April. 7. I would want to dig for fossils. Running around in caves seems too dangerous for me. I‘ll leave that to someone more brave like Jane lol 2mo
mollyrotondo That story is crazy lol but Barron does write with a convincing tone that makes you second guess if you knew nothing about Jane Austen lol 2mo

Happy#TalkLikeAPirateDay‼️ I had sooo much fun recently getting my Pirate on to join Fictional Hangover Podcast in discussion of September's Book Club Challenge Theme of #YoHoHoAhoyMateys.

If you'd like to listen you can find it here:

And just because you couldn't see the boots doesn't mean you don't need to wear them. 🏴‍☠️

I've been listening and loving. When I unexpectedly had couple of hours of quiet time during this busy Holiday weekend I poured a glass of wine and set down with my print copy.

Just loved it! Will finish listening to audio as well. 🏴‍☠️

Crinoline_Laphroaig Fictional Hangover Book Challenge Theme for September 🏴‍☠️ 3mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig Some how I missed this MKA when it came out. 3mo
marleed I read a Fortnight in September last September and loved it so much that I bought copies for books. I actually think it adds to the reading experience if you read about when/how the book was written and edited beforehand. 3mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @marleed this makes me want to read it even more. 3mo
marleed Oh and this song playing in the background! https://youtu.be/v1pD1WihY3g 3mo
