“Fun for Anglophiles and Austenites alike.”
I felt like it had a lot of potential but it just needed to be more fully developed.
Claire, knowing very little about Jane Austen initially, is transported into a a modern-day Pride and Prejudice of sorts.

This book is extremely well written with good character development. It's romance, but grown-up romance. I recommend this as a good read.Published 6 months ago by ruth cherry
Not nearly as good as "Jane Austen ruined my life," it was still worth reading. I was not impressed with the ending but I suppose it could not have happened any other way.Published 9 months ago by Wendy
