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 an English 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?

    " Very easy read. Not my favorite plot, but it was clean. "

    " A lot like Austenland but with a mystery thrown in. It keeps you guessing what is staged and what is real. I ended up being disappointed because I anticipated a twist at the end which wasn't there. "

    " A fun read, though it did take me about a third of the way in to get into it. I was expecting the sequel to be really similar to the first book so I liked that the author had the mystery twist in it. I'm tempted to give it 4 stars because I found myself really enjoying it toward the end, but then there were a few things here and there that bothered me. Like some of the main character's reactions to situations she found herself in and some situations that were pretty unbelievable (some of the things previous reviewers mentioned). I like Shannon Hale's writing style in general and I liked the main character, so i'm kind of torn. I realize it's not meant to be some serious murder story, so in the end those things didn't bother me too much. Anyway, cute book. "

    " I finally got my copy after waiting in line for over 2 months. I read the book in a day. I honestly liked the first book better, but that's because I'm not really into the whole "who dunnit" type plot. That being said, I obviously enjoyed myself enough to lose track of time...as I have just finished reading the book and am writing this review at 4 in the morning. "
