Alexandra Potter

Yet another Jane Austen-inspired book (there are quite a few). In this one, Emily Albright works in a New York bookstore and takes a Jane Austen tour/vacation as an escape from disastrous dating.

Of course, she meets this guy that she can’t stand (you can guess what happens) but she also meets the fictional Mr. Darcy himself.

It’s a fun book, but I wish Ms. Potter had done more with the whole fictional P&P book overlapping real world. Although Jasper Fforde covered that so well (and hysterically) in the Thursday Next books that it might be redundant if someone else tried it as well.
