Well let’s see what the book is all about and make sure to check out the giveaway at the end of the post!
About Henry Tilney’s Diary by Amanda Grange
Amanda Grange’s lovely novel HENRY TILNEY’S DIARY retells Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey from the perspective of Henry Tilney.
Henry Tilney is quite content with his life as a clergyman and is happy to see his older brother Frederick inherit Northanger Abbey. However, Henry’s father General Tilney has other plans. He wishes to increase his family’s means and standing by seeing that each of this three children marries a wealthy partner.
During a trip to Bath , Henry meets the charming Miss Catherine Morland, a fellow Gothic novel aficionado, and believes he has found the perfect wife, though she possesses no great fortune. Henry’s father seems to take a surprising liking to Catherine and invites her to visit the Abbey. But as in the Gothic novels both enjoy, not everything is as it seems.
About Amanda Grange (from her website)

Woman said of Mr Darcy’s Diary: “Lots of fun, this is the tale behind the alpha male,” whilst The Washington Post called Mr Knightley’s Diary “affectionate”. The Historical Novels Review made Captain Wentworth’s Diary an Editors’ Choice, remarking, “Amanda Grange has hit upon a winning formula.” Austenblog declared that Colonel Brandon’s Diary was “the best book yet in her series of heroes’ diaries.” Her paranormal sequel to Pride and Prejudice, Mr Darcy, Vampyre, was nominated for the Jane Austen Awards.
