Is this some sort of sequel?

Allison Judging by the title, it sounds like Actor and the Housewife *could* be a sequel to Austenland, but I'm pretty sure it's a standalone. Has anybody got a plot summary? I haven't been able to find one.


Heather No it isn't. If you read Shannon Hale's blog and website (http://www.squeetus.com) she mentions that it is actually the story of a Utah housewife and an actor. I think she also mentioned that it is going to be the same type of humor as Austenland though ... I'm so excited! It comes out in June!


Allison I do read her blog from time to time, but I haven't checked it recently....and it seems I always miss the juicy entries!

Anyway, thanks for the heads up. I am so psyched!

Kelsey It's not a sequel. It's about a Mormon housewife who meets a Colin-Firth (as described by Shannon Hale in the author's note)- type actor and they become best friends. Her husband is okay with it, but neighbors and family members wonder how a friendship with such a popular actor can remain platonic.

I got ahold of an advanced reader copy, and it really surprised me. I really enjoyed it.

Oh that sounds awesome! I'm psyched to read it! Thanks for the plot summary, Kelsey!
