I'm no spring chicken (far from it) and this is not the kind of book I'd normally read -- and yes, I agree with one post; it could have done with a little tweak here and there at editing stage -- but I love the heroine and want to know what happens to her. (Dare I admit it? -- she reminds me, in a way, of a modern Jane Austen character!) I really did enjoy the first day's excerpt and have eagerly been turning to this book first thing each day. This book is fun, light-hearted, readable. I will probably buy it.
