Based on Northanger Abby by Jane Austen. It's a modern version with Christian Perspective. LOVE IT.

Kathy Moore owns a book shop in Colorado. She loves mystery books of any kind - leads to a very over active imagination that leads her into some crazy situations.

All of the books in this series I would recommended for sure....I re-read this one a lot.

I love Northanger Abbey, so was looking forward to this story. However, the book doesn't stick very closely to the heart of the Jane Austen story.

In Northanger Abbey, our heroine is naive and sheltered, longing for adventure and her idea of what adventure is has been formed by the thrill and horror novels she loves. Her instincts warn her against those who only wish to use her, yet she doesn't pay attention and is duped in some of her friendships. In Northanger Abbey, our hero is well-educated,

Based on Austen's semi-gothic novel Northanger Abbey, Northpointe Chalet offers intrigue, mystery, and romance from the happy-go-lucky heroine, Kathy.

I liked this book and loved the fact that Kathy was a strong brave girl for her age of taking off and starting a career away from home and owning her own business. Book store I could just imagine myself running a bookstore and thinking how much fun it would be and that it was in an old building and the friendships she found in this little town. She was funny and was a believable likeable character. Recommend it for a fun easy read. Enjoy

I really love Debra White Smith but I have come to realize I need to stop reading modern adaptations on Northanger Abbey. No one understand Catherine like Jane. I just love the original so much. Sorry :(

This was a fun book to read. Not real deep - one of those for when you just want to relax, read a good book and not have to think too hard! :) The girl's imagination was way overactive and that drove me crazy but overall the book was good.

The stories in this Christian series re-telling Austen's books generally work for me, but this one did not. The lead character was just too unbelievable with her attitudes, and I felt the author was trying too hard.

Hmmm...this was definitely one of my least favorites in the series. Just because, in my opinion, the main girl was quite immature. But Debra Smith did a good job modernizing this story.

ANother jane Austen series based on Northanger Abbey. Apparently I'm not too familiar with the original, because the story line was so not familiar, but it was a good clean romance.

A clean read but very cheesy. One dimensional characters and predictable plot lines.

Supposed to be a modern version of Northanger Abbey. Not great, okay, easy read.
