Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen.  This book/movie is very light-hearted, though not as witty as some of Austen's other works. Henry Tilney, however is a much more agreeable person than, dare I say it,  Mr. Darcy?  Also, Tilney understands muslin. : )

In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you. - Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
