I can't say I liked Helen, the main character, much.
I was a little jealous of Allegra's chance to make as much money as she does right out of school, while living in NYC, and "living the dream." But like anything, once you take a look under the surface, things are anything but a dream.
I love how the couple grows--of course, it's all cliche, he being a reserved, brooding man, and she a friendly, bubbly woman. But there's something about the two of them together that had me reading the book all day long. And of course, there's drama. And the drama really spiced things up a bit.
A fun and flirty retelling of Pride and Prejudice.
This was a fun, quirky, and satirical read. I don't normally go for these sorts of books and don't find "funny" books funny, but this one had me laughing at points.
