Seeking Mansfield by Kate Watson
(Seeking Mansfield #1)
Publication Date: May 16, 2017
Why Am I Excited For This Book?
Sixteen-year-old Finley Price has perfected two things: how to direct a world-class production, and how to fly way, way under the radar. The only person who ever seems to notice Finley is her best friend, the Bertram's son Oliver. If she could just take Oliver's constant encouragement to heart and step out of the shadows, she'd finally chase her dream of joining the prestigious Mansfield Theater.
When teen movie stars Emma and Harlan Crawford move next door to the Bertram's, they immediately set their sights on Oliver and his cunning sister, Juliette, shaking up Finley and Oliver's stable friendship. As Emma and Oliver grow closer, Harlan finds his attention shifting from Juliette to the quiet, enigmatic, and thoroughly unimpressed Finley. Out of boredom, Harlan decides to make her fall in love with him. Problem is, the harder he seeks to win her, the harder he falls for her.
But Finley doesn't want to be won, and she doesn't want to see Oliver with anyone else. To claim Oliver's heart—and keep her own—she'll have to find the courage to do what she fears most: step into the spotlight.
I am really excited about this book for a couple of reasons. I really enjoy reading books that have to do with theater. Which is part of the plot of Seeking Mansfield. The other reason is I LOVE retellings. And Seeking Mansfield is a retelling of Jane Austen's Mansfield Park. I can't wait to read this one. I think I am going to love it!
