Jane Brannen wants nothing more than to become a famous author like Jane Austen — she just needs to figure out the key to literary success! Her chance to uncover the secret arrives when bestselling author J. E. Fairfax visits her tiny town of Whickett Harbor. Unfortunately, a hurricane rolls in and Jane gets stuck with the author's snobbish son, Devon, instead.
But when the skies clear, Jane realizes the wind has blown in something worse than annoying boys: Her mother, Susan, and Susan's new fiancé, Erik, have flown all the way from Hollywood to file for custody and bring Jane back to California. Now she needs to find a mate for her marine biologist father and figure out what's truly important about Whickett Harbor, so she can prove to her mother that this is where she's meant to stay. From award-winning author K. L. Going comes a happily-ever-after story of a girl who discovers the true secret to all good writing — through an unlikely friendship, some well-intentioned matchmaking, and little bit of science.
"Life in this small Maine village is full of drama, enough so that it spurs Jane to deepen her writing, make new friendships, and fortify the strong bond she has with her father. Appropriately for a novel that name-checks Austen, Going succeeds with witty banter and young small-town characters that are both sophisticated and accessible.... This humorous tale is led by a young writer who is, like Jane Austen, quite determined." — Kirkus Reviews
