I thought the book was not up to the previous books of Jane Austen. It was a slow read and never really kept my attention.

From the back cover:
"Sanditon - an 11 chapter fragment left at Jane Austen's death completed with seamless artistry by an Austen aficionado and novelist - is a delightful addition to Austen's beloved books about England's upper-crust world and the deception, snobbery, and unexpected romances that animate it. When Charlotte Heywood accepts an invitation to vistit the newly fashionable seaside resort of Sanditon, she is introduced to a full range of polite society, from the reigning local dowager Lady Denham to her impoverished ward Clara, and from the handsome, feckless Sidney Parker to his amusing, if hypochondriacal, sisters. A heroine whose clear-sighted common sense is often at war with romance, Charlotte cannot help observing around her both folly and passion in many guises. But can the levelheaded Charlotte resist the attractions of the heart?"
