Even better than the first! The characters really grow up you and the heroine takes a journey of self discovery that is natural and feels like one that anyone would or could go through. it was also really funny, but also deep and sometimes serious. And by the time I was done, I really did fall in love with Raymond Fitzwilliam as well, who is a really cool modern take of Colonel Fitzwilliam. I hate to sound like a girl, but that's exactly what I felt by the time that I was done.
While reading this book i felt so much joy just from reading the first page. It felt like the book was reading to me. when reading i have taken a liking to Katie Bennet after being in her sisters shadow for so long she became independent and a strong role model for girls who act like she did . i just really loved the book.
Unique, funny but also it was very deep and moving. While I have a love for Pride and Prejudice sequels, this novel was interesting because it felt both like a P&P sequel but it also felt like it's own entity. Katie Bennet's journey and her falling in love is an interesting modern fairy tale but it's also done in a very realistic way that could also happen in reality, so there is this perfect blend of fantasy love meets the everyday habits of people. And it's a very good follow up to the first book in the saga. Susie and Curby were very fun characters, and I kind of admit to falling in love with Raymond Fitzwilliam by the end. But Katie's growth as a character was the best part of the story.
