My Particular Friend

“Elementary, my dear Jane …”
… is never spoken in My Particular Friend, but it would be appropriate because in this book the worlds of Jane Austen and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle collide in the persons of Miss Charlotte House, who has the intellect of Sherlock Holmes, and Miss Jane Woodsen, who has the good sense of Miss Elizabeth Bennet.

Together they ensure that every woman’s honour remains intact and that love, not advantage, shall be the reward of marriage.

The book is a work in progress and can be read here.
