Jane has always been logical and self controlled. Now, with her guardians moving on Jane makes the logical decision to marry. From a list she compiled, Jane has chosen to ask Dr. Augustine Lawrence to enter into what she considers a business arrangement. She will keep his books and reside at his surgery while he resides at Lindridge Hall. Despite their differences, an attraction forms. Dr. Augustine agrees to the match with the caveat Jane must never enter Lindridge. However, on the first night of their marriage, a mistake places the pair at Lindridge and Augustine becomes unhinged as the night progresses. With each night Jane stays at Lindridge she watches Augustine change. Jane also uncovers a bevy of secrets that open doubts in her union and begins to believe in the secrets of Lindridge herself. As Augustine succumbs to the terrors surrounding him, he believes Jane is an apparition and he attempts to kill her. In a desperate attempt for her life, Jane unleashes something she never believed she could do; but the consequences of her actions might be her undoing.

The Death of Jane Lawrence is a highly atmospheric gothic romance. From the beginning, I was transported into the alternate history of Great Beltraine where magic is possible. Jane and Augustine fill the trope of a marriage for convenience. I loved Jane's character with her persistent logic, pursuit of knowledge and willingness to open herself up to emotions and the supernatural. Augustine is a curious character from the beginning. I enjoyed the care he took in his surgery, it was obvious that he truly cared for his patients and was skilled at his job; however, it was also clear that he was hiding something big. Jane and Augustine seem to fit together perfectly, even though they shouldn't. Lindridge Hall is the biggest character, with locked rooms, mysterious shadows and plenty of secrets to uncover, Lindridge is the quintessential gothic setting. With the addition of magic a whole new world of suspense and possibilities opens up to Jane. I was amazed at how well Jane took to magic her mind opened up to it. With more magic, Lindridge opens more doors to Jane. The writing took me on a wild ride and thoroughly explored LIndridge and the effects of magic. With the creation of a truly unique setting and an even more interesting romance, The Death of Jane Lawrence is the perfect mind-bending gothic horror.

This is a perfect book to spooky reading season! Set in a time and place only slightly different than our own, Jane Shorefield proposes a marriage of convenience to the town doctor, Augustine Lawrence, after learning that her guardians are moving. He agrees but with the stipulation that she never enter his inherited family residence, Lindridge Hall, at night. But of course, within hours of their marriage that stipulation is broken and a series of events are set motion. The setting reminded me of Crimson Peak with the gothic touches of Jane Eyre and a dash of macabre Frankenstein-esque medical procedures. This book was very different than Starling’s last one (The Luminous Dead), but it still had the same isolated and chilling tone. Fabulous! Thank you to NetGalley for the chance to read and review this book! ( )

The Death of Jane Lawrence is an unusual story about a young girl who arranges a marriage of convenience with the local doctor. She has an extremely mathematical/logical mind and a lack of skill with social situations. She would probably be considered on the spectrum where this a modern day tale.
His only requirement to this agreement is that she never visit Lindridge Hall. His decrepit family estate outside of the city. A storm on their wedding day causes her to be stuck at the home she had promised not to ever visit. She finds her new husband a changed man. He is frightened and paranoid. Not at all like he was before they were married. Inside Lindridge Hall, Jane finds that the good doctor has many secrets and that she may have arranged for much more than she bargained for.
Definitely a good spooky story. I didn't find it particularly frightening or gory. The only part that felt to dragged out was Jane's seven day journey into learning magic. The ending was a bit chaotic and somewhat confusing but it wrapped up pretty nicely. Overall a good book for a fan of gothic mystery. ( )

One for gothic horror fans. Perfectly paced as it ups the creep factor! ( )

I'll say up front that this is going to be a brief review. The Death of Jane Lawrence is the kind of Gothic novel that one should come to without prior knowledge. It's haunting, surprising, twisting, heart-pulling, and frightening—everything a good Gothic should be. If you like that kind of fiction. You'll love this book. If you've never read that kind of fiction, this would be a great time to try it. ( )
