Murder at Mansfield Park: A Novel

Murder at Mansfield Park: A Novel - Lynn Shepherd Hard to say if this is 3 or 4 stars. Why no half stars in this system? Okay, so maybe it is 4 stars, but that might be on the high side. There is so much to say about this book, but in a few lines: Enjoyable, but I did find it hard to accept the changes she makes in the characters in Mansfield Park, especially because it implies something about the relationships in Mansfield Park itself. Once I got past that, I enjoyed reading the book.
