Unlike everyone else I am longing to be back in Italy (my trip last year at this time). Here is a look at the kind of vacation I wish I was on right now!

Midnight in Austenland
by Shannon Hale

Book Jacket Summary
When Charlotte Kinder treats herself to a two-week vacation at Austenland, she happily leaves behind her ex-husband and his delightful new wife, her ever-grateful children, and all the rest of her real life in America. She dons a bonnet and stays at a country manor house that provides an immersive Austen experience, complete with gentleman actors who cater to the guests' Austen fantasies.

Everyone at Pembrook Park is playing a role, but increasingly, Charlotte isn't sure where roles end and reality begins. And as the parlor games turn a little bit menacing, she finds she needs more than a good corset to keep herself safe. Is the brooding Mr. Mallery as sinister as he seems? What is Miss Gardenside's mysterious ailment? Was that an actual dead body in the secret attic room? And-perhaps of the most lasting importance-could the stirrings in Charlotte's heart be a sign of real-life love?

The follow-up to reader favorite Austenland provides the same perfectly plotted pleasures, with a feisty new heroine, plenty of fresh and frightening twists, and the possibility of a romance that might just go beyond the proper bounds of Austen's world. How could it not turn out right in the end?

  9. My first Jane Austen read was "Sense & Sensibility", and I absolutely loved it and thought I'd found my "one", but then I read "Pride & Prejudice" and knew it could not be topped. So, simply put, "Pride & Prejudice" is my favorite Austen novel :D

    Thank you for being part of this giveaway hop, and for your immense generosity. Have a wonderful summer and let freedom ring!
