A book based on people obsessed with Jane Austen was what initially intrigued me about this story, and what ultimately keep me entertained from beginning to end.

One aspect of this story that I really loved was that it followed two developing relationships. You have Katherine and Warwick, and Robyn and Dan. Both relationships were equally as important, and I was happy to see both being played out simultaneously. Katherine and Warwick's relationship begins in deceit no matter how well-meaning the lie, and once you start with deceit it is hard to really build a strong foundation. Robyn and Dan's relationship had one large complication: Jace, Robyn's boyfriend for years. Even if she has grown out of him, can she really leave the man who has been part of her life for so long to follow her heart? Robyn's dilemma is definitely a mind vs. heart, which many of us can relate too and sympathize with.

I'll admit that I am not a huge Jane Austen fan. I think it is important to say this because, while I am not an Austen fan, I absolutely enjoyed this story. It helped me learn more about the famous author and actually intrigued me enough to make me want to read some of Jane Austen's stories.

This story is a based in modern time, but it also has a historical feel to it since it is based around a Jane Austen conference. This was a great way to blend modern with historical in my opinion. I have read both modern and historical stories and some who have attempted to blend the two. I think that this story is one that others can use as a great example on how to accomplish this best. At moment, I felt as if I might have been reading a story that was 200 years old, yet it still felt extremely modern. This is a story I would recommend to anyone who loves a good romance novel.

A Christian's Review

I'm writing this review for Christians or moms who watch out for what their daughters' read. If you're not one of those, you just won't understand. Even us "prudes" are allowed to have an opinion.

I'm writing this review for Christians or moms who watch out for what their daughters' read. If you're not one of those, you just won't understand. Even us "prudes" are allowed to have an opinion.

That being said, I give this book a PG-13 rating. I am a happily married woman, who also loves Jane A's novels. This book was a fun, romantic read. About 1/2 way through a sex scene was introduced, which wasn't explicit, but did go into more detail than I'm comfortable with. I decided at that point to quit the book. :-( My curiousity did make me read the last few pages to see how the story ended. If you like to keep your mind pure, I would skip this one & stick to P&P (or "Mr. Darcy's Diary" which was very enjoyable!).

    Predictable

    Cute story but very cheesy and predictable. It was pretty enjoyable to read but also repetative at some points. I felt like i knew whar would happen in the end by the 3rd chapter. Im glad I only paid a couple dollars for it. It did inspire me to read some actual Jane Austen though!
