I actually really enjoyed this book. I found it to be a quick enjoyable read. I thought the characters were just quirky enough to make them real. My only complaint is the seemingly dropped ending. There are some plot points that aren't wrapped up well enough for my taste. I still enjoyed it though and plan on reading the authors' other works.

Emily Do you like this? Why did Jane Austen ruin her life? I've looked at this book so many times, but I love Jane Austen (I swear, I'd have her and Johnny Depp's love babies, lol) so I am afraid of reading it!

Natalie I did. Jane ruined Emma's life because she taught that marriage was a happy ending and Emma's marriage did not tend that way. She is determined to expose Austen as a fraud, but things don't always turn out the way you planned. It is a cute fun read and I walked away still loving Austen
