Jane Austen in Scarsdale

At first I was totally embarrassed to admit I was even reading this. I rarely pick something up at the library on a whim (usually I just trust my handy list). But, it looked cute and I saw it on a display of all things Jane Austen. Turns out, the book is a total rip-off of Persuasion. So, it was a little disappointing to know from the get-go exactly how it was going to turn out. Then again, last week my brain was in no mood for thinking, so it turned out rather nicely. It's funny, cute, fluffy, and brainless...and if you haven't read Persuasion, you might even be surprised.
