My latest novel ‘Murder and Mr Rochester’


My name is Jeanette Sears and I am a freelance writer and speaker.  As you look at this website you will be able to read more about my work.  It’s great to be able to share a mix of both fiction and non-fiction and I hope you will enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoyed writing them.  I will also share news about my speaking events that may interest you, plus there are blog posts, past and present, to read and share with others.

Here is the blurb for my new novel Murder and Mr Rochester:

“Emma-Jane Austin and her book club friends are in love with Mr Rochester, Mr Darcy, Heathcliff, and all the other heroes of great romantic literature. But when a fatal ‘accident’ happens at E-J’s place of work – literally a body in the library – she has to turn instead to her love of murder mysteries to help her solve the puzzle. Although, perhaps her passion for romantic heroes won’t be wasted after all, as the Detective in charge of the case starts to look remarkably like a real-life Mr Rochester…”

  1. I’ve spent a happy time browsing this attractive and comprehensive website and enjoying the photos. I know I’m one of many people much looking forward to further novels!

  2. Dear Jeanette,
    Do you remember when we met in Oxford in 2010? I told you that you were born to be a writer. Congratulations on your success. Merry Christmas. Love, Kate Brian and Samuel (California, USA)

  3. Murder and Mr. Rochester was thoroughly absorbing and suspenseful—I loved it, and hope to spend more time inside the world you have created with these characters! The dénouement was chilling, rather terrifying there for a few moments. I don’t want to give anything away, but I hope it’s not a spoiler if I say I was yelling in my mind, “Run! Run!”

    (No relation to the author at all; just a delightful coincidence!)

  4. Hello Jeanette – my husband and I attended your excellent and stimulating talk on Dorothy L Sayers today. Thank you so much. We both felt inspired to re-read the works we know and to explore the many that we haven’t yet read. Yours, Heather and George Coombs

  5. Jeanette, I remember with gratitude your lectures at Trinity. Just started using your notes on Jeremiah from Reflections for Daily Prayer…..really useful. Thanks Robert
