Midnight in Austenland by Shannon Hale: On The Cover

 Charlotte Kinder's husband has just left her for another woman. Another woman called 'Justice.' Charloette is in desperate need of a change of scenery and luckily, her travel agent has just the thing: two weeks at Pembrook Park in England, where it is always 1816, and ladies are wooed by actors dressed as proper gentleman.

 Everyone at Pembrook Park is playing a role, but Charlotte isn't sure where roles end and reality begins. Hears are racing and stomachs fluttering in a tangle of intrigues that's increasingly tough to sort out. It's midnight in Austenland, and Charlotte is about to prove herself a heroine worthy of Austen.

 'A welcome, wittyglimpse of a side of Austen rarely exposed' Publishers Weekly

 'The kind of book to read on those days you just want to wrap up in a blanket and eat three pounds of chocolate' Deseret News
