Austen Revisited

After I posted my new CHALLENGE last week, I decided I needed to reevaluate my Everything Austen Challenge. I'm not a quitter or an abondoner -- and I really want to accomplish this challenge -- but with the holidays looming, I realized trying to read Persuasion at nearly 400pgs and Jane Austen: A Life at 400+pgs before the New Year's deadline, well, it just wasn't going to happen. So, I've substituted this (I bought it used for $3):

Jane and His Lordship's Legacy (Jane Austen Mysteries (Paperback))
Jane and His Lordship's Legacy is historical suspense writing at its very finest, graced with insight, perception, and uncommon intelligence of its singular heroine in a mystery that will test the mettle of her mind and heart.

At only 280pgs -- I think I can manage it. Also, I've been intrigued by this series since I first spotted it on the shelf above M.C. Beaton mysteries. It's not the 1st in the series -- I hope I'm not spoiling anything.
