Amusing Diversion submitted by yugure on September 25, 2012, 2:33pm An entertaining, light read for anyone who enjoys fiction set during the Regency era, though I found the relationship between the two main characters to be rather blatantly derivative of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice. I also found it distracting that the narrator occasionally over-explains things, as if aware that the reader is from 2012, not the 1800's. But overall, it was worth reading once.
