I tried to like this book, I really did. Good concept, compelling (at least at first glance) lead character. Followed by--as soon as you've read past the requisite few chapters required for a book proposal, I would swear--an unbelievably rapid decline into banality, unpleasantness, and sheer boredom. I found myself skipping 50, 80 pages at a time, desperately trying to get to the end. Which, when I arrived, turned out to be exactly what I thought. Superficial dialogue, one-dimensional characters, and a main character "Lady Kate" who continually lies about stupid things for apparently the sole reason of putting herself into cringingly and completely unfunny situations makes 2 stars a generous rating for this book.

(2 1/2 stars) Predictable, harmless easy read about a woman who decides that maybe Jane Austen knew best. Find someone who can give you financial security first, then worry about affection later. After suffering through some financial set backs, Kate is on a mission to find a wealth husband who can finally give her a reversal of fortune. But for someone who is supposed to be a super Austen fan, she forgets even in Austen's time, money can't buy you happiness. While reading it I kept thinking which of today's actress will play "Lady Kate" as this is bound to be another predictable Rom-com.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
