I loved the idea of this book! The story follow Charlotte Kinder after her husband divorced her. She decides to go away on a vacation and after reading a slew of Jane Austen novels, she decides to visit "Austenland" : an all inclusive vacay with costumes, actors, scripted love interests, authentic cuisine....the whole nine yards. There was mystery, murder, romance, everything wrapped into one fun package. I loved the fact that you were always guessing what was "real" and what was "scripted". The only rock I could throw was the ending left me a little unsatified. Will definitely read this author again!
