The Jane Austen Marriage Manual is definitely one of the must-read, buzzy books of summer and we’re thrilled that HarperCollins has provided us with a few copies to give away to three lucky readers. We’ve just finished this delightful and delicious book, written by Kim Izzo, a Canadian girl who also just happens to be a good friend of Weddingbells and an engaged lady herself. As the title denotes, the story is absolutely Austen-influenced and chronicles the love, life and times of Kate Shaw, a single freelance writer between magazine gigs, on the verge of the big 4-0. Kate ultimately lands an interesting assignment that changes the course of her life—answering the question is it possible, in these modern times—and at a certain age—to marry well? Trust us, you will love where Kate’s adventures take her and the book is the perfect escape from wedding planning.
To win, you need to tap into your own creative juices and tell us who your favourite Jane Austen heroine is and why. We’ll pick our favourite two answers. Contest closes May 30 and is open to residents of Canada only.
UPDATE: Congratulations to our contest winners Robin and Melanie! Enjoy your books.
