Sanditon, by Jane Austen and Another Lady

Well, Jane Austen wrote 11 chapters before she died, but she did leave notes on how it was supposed to end, so supposedly an ambitious Australian writer stepped in to finish it in 1975.
That was pretty seamless, actually- if I hadn't known to be looking for the switch, I wouldn't have noticed. Sweet story, with a surprising (and not very Austen-ish!) twist at the end.
