I think the author is a fan of Jane Austin and Mr. Darcy. I foresaw almost everything that was going to happen and then waited for the story to catch up. The book was on sale for $5.00. At this price it was a good value for the money.

This was a well written and well thought out story. I enjoyed all of the characters and hate to say goodbye to them. I listened to this as an audible book, but then bought a hardcopy I saw at a secondhand shop. This book has a place on my bookshelf.
