    Two stars is harsh, but, I think, necessary This was a quick read, so there s that But, but, but the writing was juvenile and frequently anachronistic I m not a geek about that stuff usually, but the book does have to absorb me for the anachronisms not to stick out like screams on the page, this one did...

    I just wanted to say, this is the first book in by this author I have every read the review for this book will not be compared to the rest of the series because I have had no exposure to the other books It fully works as a standalone There are some regency books that use modern speech where the only hint of time is the imagery and rules of society That is so not the case with this novel And the characters right from the beginning, Jane s character pulled me in She enjoyed theater and mu I just wanted to say, this is the first book in by this author I have every read the review for this book will not be compared to the rest of the series because I have had no exposure to the other books It fully works as a standalone There are some regency books that use modern speech where the only hint of time is the imagery and rules of society That is so not the case with this novel And the characters right from the beginning, Jane s character pulled me in She enjoyed theater and music so much like it was made only for her but had her own reasons for disliking being out in society Her brilliance was apparent right from the start right until the moment she threw herself at the Captain In someways it seemed like Jane had two personalities the brilliant recluse and a smitten girl prior to her first season I was in shock how she declared her intentions so sudden...

    The best of the series so far I particularly liked the disease of Janenesia and wished there had beenscenes with Jane saying outrageous things only for them to go ignored I also would have liked to hear about her coming out and why it was nothing, and to see her brother s reaction to her suitor.However, I very much liked the story that we did get Jane has been on the shelf her entire life Everyone who meets her has to be reintroduced each time, as they consistentl...
