Location scout and Jane Austen aficionado, Kate Sharp, is thrilled when the company she works for lands the job of finding locations for a new film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, but then her boss, Kevin, fails to return from a scouting trip to England. Afraid that Kevin has slipped back into some destructive personal habits he struggles with, Kate travels to England to salvage Kevins and the companys reputation before word gets out that he is missing. Things go from bad to worse when Kate arrives in Nether Woodsmoor, a quaint village of golden stone cottages and rolling green hills, only to find no trace of Kevin except his abandoned luggage. Even the rumpled, easygoing local scout they consulted, Alex, doesnt know where Kevin might be. Increasingly worried about Kevin and with an antsy director waiting for updates about the preproduction details, Kate embarks on a search that includes a pub-crawl and cozy cottages as well as stately country manors. But Kevin remains missing, and she begins to suspect that the picturesque village and beautiful countryside may not be as idyllic as they seem....

I’m always pleased to find a new mystery series! I liked Kate, loved the Jane Austen references, and was surprised by a couple of twists.
BB-EB-IB-$.99. A very good read. I would have given it 3 1/2 stars.
I received this book for free courtesy of Patchwork Press-Cooperative via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review of the book.
Sara Rosett sets this tidy mystery between Los Angeles and Nether Woodsmoor, England. Film location scout, Kate Sharpe, is tasked with locating her missing boss, Kevin. Kevin was on location scouting potential sites for the filming of a Jane Austen movie. The small production company she works for cannot afford to have a missing owner who may have slipped into his b ...more
I didn't think this was a bad start to a new series. The Jane Austen theme didn't take over the entire book and it wasn't another attempt to rewrite P&P again, so I was willing to give it a chance.

Sara Rosett has taken the classic English country cozy and made it her own in this first book in her new series. From the beautiful cover to the last word, the reader feels as if he/she is with Kate as she works to discover where her boss, Kev ...more
