My take on this book is that it is a "charmer." It is a sweet read and it took my mind off all the stuff going on in the world. It is an easy straight forward read that is a fun and charming modern day Austin spin off. I confess that I have a handful of these spin off's and I have not read them. Except Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (hysterical).
I do like the characters in this read keeping in character with the originals in a modern sense and I feel the essence of them in this book. There is a certain amount of zest and spunk I like to see in characters even ones seemingly demure in times of old. I like the opportunity that modern time has put forward to empower woman to put each of their destiny in their own hands. Especially in love.
This is the book you want to curl up for some instant charm and good old fashioned girl and boy meet romance. It has the classic elements of a budding new relationship and "I wonder if he likes me? and oh no I can't like him what if he truly ends ups being the enemy?" Oh, the misunderstanding standing of it all!
"He stuttered an excuse and dashed out of the room, taking an exceptionally long lunch by himself. When he returned, that weird cold spell engulfed him for the rest of the day, making any conversation robotic and short. Elinor had resolved to never ask him again."Oh how we love to read this right? However, I got a bit tired of Edwards transparency and the cold monster spell popping up several times in a single event. Moody much?
I can't say much more. The book summary below is your guide and I am not going to give away because the book takes you into some twists and you should just have enjoy and anguish over it all as I did with my optimistic romantic heart.
Would I recommend the book? Yes I would. It is not going to solve the worlds' problems or make you think deep or work on your issues. It will provide smiles, and charm and a few hours of classic romance. Lighten up and read something sweet. I was lucky to be gushing over it during Valentine's Day.
