Midnight in Austenland is a companion novel to the popular Austenland novel. I finished that novel this week as well, and while I found many things to criticize in that story, overall I thought that that story was super cute ... cute enough to overlook the problems with the story. In this story the cuteness was just not there. Unfortunately when you take out the cuteness factor it REALLY harms the overall story. I think the author was TRYING to be cute, but when you stick cuteness in the middle of murder and attempted murder scenes it just seems utterly ridiculous. A person has been murdered. Shouldn't the police be called right away? Wouldn't that be an excellent reason to abandon your fake Austen experience for a day or so? And yet everyone just keeps up their fantasy play time. Sometimes they discuss what happened. Most of the time they do not. It ended up seeming very weird.
Once again, I think that the big problem with this story is the confusion between what is real and what is make believe. Everyone in the story is playing a role. The couples are scripted out from the very beginning. From Austenland we know that even the "unscripted" relationships can end up as having been scripted without one person's knowledge. I never felt like I could place my loyalty with any particular person because I had no idea who was acting a part and who was just being themselves. That harmed my experience as a reader and made it hard to root for any particular romantic alliances. The cuteness of the first book in the series allowed me to overlook this problem. This story chooses to take a darker and more serious tone, and that made this struggle to know what was reality a bigger problem.
I thought that the idea for this book sounded intriguing. Unfortunately, the execution failed on this one. I can only give this story two stars ... it was okay.
Enjoyed the little mystery of Mary and the dead nuns, the reversal with Eddie, and meeting Miss Charming again even if the waning is a little abrupt. Still... It ends how we all wish our own personal fairy tales would end and there's no shame in enjoying the romantic, happily ever after Charlotte gets.
