" This book left me feeling cheated. Slow to gain momentum, I trudged slowly through the first half. Once all of the characters were fully realized, things got interesting. Then at the end, all of the loose ends were tied together, packaged up, and cinched up with a bow of a happy ending in the last 12 pages. Though I respect Jane Austen as an author, this novel was a disappointment. "
