Book Summary:
Two hundred years after her death, Jane Austen is still surrounded by the literature she loves—but now it's because she's the owner of Flyleaf Books in a sleepy college town in Upstate New York. Every day she watches her novels fly off the shelves—along with dozens of unauthorized sequels, spin-offs, and adaptations. Jane may be undead, but her books have taken on a life of their own.
To make matters worse, the manuscript she finished just before being turned into a vampire has been rejected by publishers—116 times. Jane longs to let the world know who she is, but when a sudden twist of fate thrusts her back into the spotlight, she must hide her real identity—and fend off a dark man from her past while juggling two modern suitors.
Will the inimitable Jane Austen be able to keep her cool in this comedy of manners, or will she show everyone what a woman with a sharp wit and an even sharper set of fangs can do?

  1. I read this one last month and loved it. I think Jane Austen made a great vampire. :) I've tried to stay away from the mashup of the classic works, but this one caught my interest. I'm glad I picked it up in the end. There is suppose to be a second book to come out.

  2. I thought it was just OK. It was funny, but I just couldn't see the Jane in the book as Jane Austen. I kept thinking that Jane Austen was so much wittier than Jane Fairfax (which is what she calls herself in this book). That said, I'm planning to read the next book. LOL
