Northanger Parks

Northanger Parks book cover

21st Century Austen Book 4

Welcome to the most wonderful place in the universe! A place for joy, friendship, and maybe love.

Katie Merton is a graduate student with an impulsive streak. When her aunt and uncle invite her to join them on a last-minute, all-expense-paid trip to the Northanger Parks California theme park and resort, she jumps at the chance to visit her favorite place! Who cares that she’s just started her final semester of graduate school and has a temporary job as a project manager starting in a few weeks?

Katie knows she’s made the right decision to take this trip when she meets popular YouTube personality Ethan Thornton and his sister. Spending time with them makes the trip even more magical, and Katie finds herself unexpectedly carried away by the possibility of a new relationship.  

She’s convinced she’s right about Ethan’s feelings from her when the Thornton’s invite her to extend her vacation by joining them for a week at the Northanger Parks in Florida. Once there, Katie struggles with the Thornton’s domineering father, who sends her packing when Katie brashly kisses Ethan. Heartbroken, Katie returns home seeing all the ways her assumptions and misjudgments led to her banishment.  She has to learn to accept Ethan’s needs and make sure they fit with hers if she’s ever going to find her happily ever after.

This is book 4 in my 21st Century Austen Chick Lit series, inspired by Northanger Abbey. The ebook, paperback, and audiobook are all on sale now. The ebook is included in Kindle Unlimited!
