I thought this was going to be a cute story about sister bonding and family and it turned out to be pretty cliche and predictable. The story went quickly but that's because the dialogue is redundant and the characters are shallow. The plot is totally predictable and the sister bonding isn't even very good. The only interesting thing about this story is the random bits of Jane Austen trivia. The romantic love is forced and unbelievable - who really falls in love in a week anyway? Well, I mean some stories do, but those characters are driven by lust and passion. These characters are just looking to settle. Also, the sister rivalry is never settled and the "new start" for both of them is based on nothing of substance! Seriously, this book had no depth and no inspirational or touching moments.
