Publisher's Summary

It is a truth universally acknowledged that an overly inflated ego must be in want of a spotlight.

When the actor set to play Mr. Darcy is found murdered in his dressing room, Pine Crest's annual AustenFest is derailed. Pepper Brooks must set her pride and prejudice aside to differentiate between rumor and truth as she searches for the killer.

Between running her new bookstore and trying to decide who is a Darcy and who is a Wickham, Pepper quickly finds that her story might not end as happily as those written by Jane Austen.

Austin Fest!! Yes Please!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I have not read the first or second book when I got this and realized it was book 3. But it was still great and a good stand alone story too.
My favorite is the Austinfest!!! Oh my goodness I want to go! But things get shady when the lead actor is not only forced out of his role as Mr Darcy but then suddenly found murdered in the trailer of Thomas King! The man replacing him. So much mystery to find out whole killed him. Pepper is starts getting death threats as she slowly starts to unravel what happened. Them before she knows it... she has been tied up and is being thrown in a lake.
Very good and the Jane Austin book references are awesome!! Just the interesting twist this murder needed.
Anna does an awesome job narrating too. I really felt like I was there at the Austinfest! Such a great performance.

Love Pepper Brooks

Wow! What a great read. I have been reading the Pepper Brooks Literally series and this keeps getting better and better.The mystery part was very intriguing and kept me guessing. I really enjoyed Pepper's thought process in working out the antagonist. I also enjoyed how Pepper was growing within herself, her family, her community, and with Alex.
The Jane Austin theme throughout the book worked very well, in particular the references to Lizzy and Mr Darcy. I loved the quotes.
Eryn Scott has written another enjoyable mystery and I look forward to reading many more. Anna Caputo, a new to me narrator, did a great job at drawing me into the story.

Intriguing Cozy Mystery

I am loving the cozy mysteries written by Eryn Scott that I have read/listened too. The narrator Anna Caputo is new to me and I enjoyed her performance as she brought this cozy mystery to life for me.
This series is set in Pine Crest, Washington and I love that it is a small town. I enjoyed the literary references which I found entertaining as Pepper sifted through the clues. I envy Pepper Brooks owning her own book store, it is something I have always wanted to do.
This was a a book filled with enough danger, suspense secrets and clues to satisfy my detective spirit. The intrigue and suspense kept me on the edge of my seat as I listened to this story. There are several twists, turns and surprises in Literally Gone as Pepper, Olivia and Alex follow the clues and I have to say that I was surprised by the ending.

"Jane Austen in Pinecrest."

Looking for a lightweight, easy read murder mystery set amidst a Jane Austen small town festival with the protagonists clutching volumes of her works to the chest, grinning amicably and quoting well known lines from her stories? Look no further. This is the book for you.
When the husband of the director of the play of Pride and Prejudice, who had been about to star as Mr.D'arcy, is murdered, suspicion falls on several of the recent arrivals, not least the arrogant Tommy, Hollywood star who grew up in the town and had arrived, uninvited, to play D'Arcy himself.
Book shop owner, Pepper Brooks investigates, with a little help from new boyfriend, policeman Alex.

Narrated by bouncy voiced, Valley accented Anna Caputo, with warmth, expression and humour, this is certainly no literary masterpiece, not even a deep and confusing mystery to be solved, but it is enjoyable fun to brighter the empty hours. My thanks to the rights holder of Literally Gone, who, at my request freely gifted me with a complimentary copy via Audiobooks Unleashed.

A quaint and charming mystery

I enjoyed this book. I don't know anything about Jane Austen (other than the name) so was a little bit worried that this book would be over my head with lots of quotes etc that meant nothing to me but I have listened to the rest of the books in this series so thought I would give it a go. Glad I did because it was a fun mystery and despite it being set around the theme of Jane Austen I had no problems following along and didn't find myself bogged down with quotes. The story focused on the mystery and Jane Austen just provided the reason for the gathering, so don't let that put you off. The characters are an interesting and a like able bunch. I liked the fact that for most of the book you were puzzling over who the intended target was and with the twist at the end I didn't guess the killer. It's a nice small town mystery that will have you wanting more.
Pepper has agreed to sell the tickets for the annual AustenFest at her book shop but she had no idea that by doing so she would put her life in danger. A local boy, Thomas, done good in the world of acting returns to star as Mr Darcy in the final performance for the festival but as the character had already been cast, tempers rise as demands are made. Then the original Mr Darcy is found dead in Thomas trailer. Pepper fears the wrong man was killed and the killer could strike again unless someone stops him. But the more she digs into the actor the more she questions if she is right. Yes he is obnoxious and demanding but is that really a reason to kill him? And what about the man that actually did die? Would anybody have a reason to kill him? Finding out means putting her life on the line as the killer tries to cover up there tracks.
I liked the narrator and thought she sounded right for the part of Pepper and her friends.
