Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Katherine Reay has enjoyed a life-long affair with the works of Jane Austen and her contemporaries -- who provide constant inspiration both for writing and for life. Katherine’s first novel, Dear Mr. Knightley, was a 2014 Christy Award Finalist and winner of the 2014 INSPY Award for Best Debut as well as Carol Awards for both Best Debut and Best Contemporary. She is also the writer behind Lizzy & Jane and the The Bronte Plot – all contemporary stories with a bit of "classics" flair. Katherine holds a BA and MS from Northwestern University and is a wife, mother, runner, former marketer, avid chocolate consumer and, randomly, a tae kwon do black belt. After living all across the country and a few stops in Europe, Katherine and her family recently moved back to Chicago.



RITA-nominated author Colleen Thompson first cut her teeth writing historical romances under the pseudonym Gwyneth Atlee. But she couldn’t resist the draw of intrigue and neither could her readers. Together they’ve traveled the twists and turns through her more than fifteen tales of romantic suspense. A native of New Jersey, Thompson now calls Texas home. When she’s not out and about exploring the Lone Star State with her husband, she’s at home writing or playing with her two rescue dogs.

Review

'Dripping with period detail but fundamentally a modern story, The Austen Escape is a clever, warmhearted homage to Austen and her fans.' (Shelf Awareness)

'Reay handles. . .scenes with tenderness and a light touch, allowing the drama to come as much from internal conflict as external, rom-com--type misunderstandings. . .Thoughtful escapism.' (Kirkus)

'Unlike many books written in homage to Austen, this is not a modern retelling of any of her stories, but rather a romp among contemporary Austen fanatics. Readers eager for anything Austen-related will enjoy this clean romance that explores the concept of escapism and what it may reveal about our real lives.' (Publishers Weekly)

'Reay's exquisite phrasing will resonate with readers and provide much fodder for pondering. . .this is a beautifully written novel and one to be savored and enjoyed.' (RT Book Reviews, 4 stars)

'Reay has written so many Austen-tangential novels, they almost make a genre. While three adapt Mansfield Park, Pride and Prejudice, and Emma, The Austen Escape stands alone . . . What's interesting about Reay is the way she tests how far from canon new stories can get. Where Flynn's Jane Austen Project gave us time travel; Reay offers an Austen-triggered psychotic break. Such storylines reveal something Janites already know: Austen is infinitely adaptable.' (Vulture) --This text refers to the paperback edition.
