    Absolutely Wonderful! Aston has not dissapointed

    Third book from an excellant series and this does not fall short! The plot is good, characters even better, and I was glad to find the language much better than the second. Easy to get into and tough to put down, a definately read if not buy!

    Ok, But Not Fantastic

    I have read many of sequels and this one was no different. I enjoyed the book and the characters, but I knew what was going to happen before anything happened. That was disappointing to me. I enjoy being suprised and the romantic side of this era. I would say, not a must read, but just a good book. I will continue to read the series, however.

    It was an easy read but...

    I didn't find this one as enjoyable as the previous 2 novels (Darcy's Daughters & Exploits Etc. of Alethea). It felt as if she cheated us out of something, skipping to where the two lovers (the Darcy cousins) end up happily ever after. I found it hard to accept that either one would be able to simply lay aside such deeply held perceived offences by the other. It would be more interesting to read of how they worked through their perceptions of one another.

    I wanted to like this book!

    I really did want to like this book. I'm a huge Jane Austen fan, the biggest I know, so it's always fun to read the 'what if stories' of characters I love. I put this book down after seven chapters. Aston just doesn't give you what Austen does--those scenes that are full of subtle tension, passion, and intellect. In this book she has the main character, Cassandra, falling in love, but doesn't give you the conversation that made it happen. Austen would never have left that out. Aston's style is easy to read, her characters approach believability, but she misses the mark for true Austen whit and drama. Original dialogue supported by credible narrative is essential, but lacking in Aston's work. Still, it may be enjoyable as light vacation reading.
