Jones’ characters are hysterical. From a Royal Shakespearean actor who wants to steal every show, to a woman named Magda who runs the festival as if she were a prison guard, each person is extremely colorful and makes this a fun, charming read.

One day, as her world completely crashes down around her, Lily signs up to be part of a Jane Austen re-enactment festival. This is perfect for her — not only does she get to run away from her problems, but she gets to do it with the one person who has never let her down: Jane Austen.

Lily’s journey of self-discovery includes “Janeites,” the most obsessed fans in the world, and a man named Willis Somerford, who lives in the attic of the huge manor. But as Lily begins a courtship that will mimic the beauty of an Austen novel, she soon realizes that men in books bear little resemblance to real people. (MORROW, Mar., 324 pp., $14.99)
