Jane Austen Goes to Hollywood

By Abby McDonald

“Fans of the original will enjoy exploring the reimagined characters, relationships, and dramas, while readers uninitiated in Austen can still appreciate the spirited romantic ride.”— Publishers Wee

Hallie and Grace Weston have never exactly seen eye to eye. So when they are suddenly uprooted from San Francisco, the two sisters take to life in shiny Beverly Hills in typically different styles. Shy, responsible Grace still yearns for her old life — and the maybe-almost-crush she left behind. Meanwhile, drama queen Hallie is throwing herself headlong into life —and love — in LA. But is Hallie blinded by the stars in her eyes? And is Grace doomed to forever hug the sidelines? Abby McDonald gives LA the Jane Austen treatment in this contemporary take on Sense and Sensibility.

  • Now in paperback, a smart, funny, and fast-paced read.
  • Great for Austen-philes and fans of Prom & Prejudice, Clueless, Lost in Austen, and the like.
