Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The follow up to Jane Austen Ruined My Life (2009) finds recently unemployed Claire Prescott heading to England to give a paper for her sister at a Jane Austen seminar. Not an Austen scholar by any means, Claire feels out of place at Oxford among the learned Austenites until she’s approached by elderly Harriet Dalrymple, who claims to be in possession of a partial manuscript of First Impressions, an early version of Pride and Prejudice. When she shows Claire the manuscript bit by bit, Claire is surprised to find a very different love story for Elizabeth Bennet unfolding on the page. Claire is questioning her own relationship with her stable but sports-obsessed boyfriend, Neil, while engaging in a serious flirtation with James, a handsome, inscrutable publisher. When Claire presents her sister’s paper and finds some startling parallels to her own life in it, she realizes she has some serious reevaluating to do. Readers who enjoyed Pattillo’s debut will find many similarities (and one familiar character) here, while Claire’s journey of self-discovery is undeniably enjoyable. --Kristine Huntley


“Smart chick lit that’s an absolute pleasure to read.” —BookPage

“Filled with whimsy and romantic literary fun... Pattillo’s novel is a rewarding read.”


“Fun for Anglophiles and Austenites alike.”

—Library Journal
