Fun, quick read! If you’re a Pride and Prejudice fan and like light drama and romance, you will enjoy this!

A very fun and diverting read about an American woman who unwittingly signs up for a reality show in England to win a hundred thousand dollars. Funny and informative for all things Regency. There are serious undertones too about life in 1812, so this wasn't a completely fluff read. I happened to read Jo Baker's novel Longbourn recently which is a more serious take on the time period, but it paired perfectly with this novel. Both are highly recommended!

Cute story with the twist of a reality show.

This book is a delightful read, taking a modern educated US woman and placing her in a British reality TV show set in Jane Austen's time. Sounds ludicrous but it works with its historical color, game show hunt for a big cash prize, AND romance. The words flow and it is a well written romantic romp.

Interesting premise for a book, but fell totally flat for me. The main character, Chloe, is thoroughly immature and irritating and many parts of the story were just too far fetched for me to enjoy. If it weren't for the interesting tidbits about life in Regency times, I would have never made it to the end.

I love chick lit, and this book definitely had all the elements to keep me interested through till the end. It's very innocent in language and content, so I would be comfortable recommending this book to my teenaged daughter as well as to my mother and grandmother. Those of you that are fans of "The Bachelor" TV series will find the storyline charming.
