An ok read. Very similar to the Pink Carnation series, but not really as well written. The 'manuscript', while entertaining, contained far too much anachronistic language to be believable as Austen, and the plot was closer to Heyer.

Didn't pass the 50 page test for me.

I enjoy most things that remind me of Jane Austen's work. The story within the story was a bit of a cheesefest and it was the ultimate far fetched fantasty find (missing manuscript) but I did like the characters and the adventure of it.

This was better than I thought it might be. Most books that dare to emulate Jane Austen are not very good. But this one (or two, should I say) kept my attention. I actually liked the book within the book best. Great fun!
