Waiting on Wednesday (5)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
I love Jane Austen! Who doesn't, right? I also LOVE Shannon Hale. Really. I'm secretly obsessed with her books. Ever since I read The Goose Girl years ago, I get giddy when I see her name on a book. So, how could I not get excited about her newest book.... 

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?

I have never read any Jane Austen books (A) But that may be because I so far only read YA books. That may change later though :) Great pick!
Thank you for commenting on my WoW. <3 And yeah, agree with your comment about YA shape shifters :)
Love, Carina
