I won this book through First Reads and am glad I gave it a shot.

This is a light read about Jane Austen as a vampire running a small bookstore in a small New York town. We follow Jane as she tries to maneuver around men who are interested in her, getting a novel published and a rival who wants to destroy her.

Ford pokes fun at the current Austen craze, the current vampire craze, and fandom in this charming, doesn't-take-itself-too-serious tale.

The pacing was pretty good, with enough tension in each chapter to make me want to continue reading.

In compliance with FTC guidelines, I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads.
