This pleasing story bears some resemblance to Northanger Abbey, with the heroine’s love of bodice rippers parallelling Austen’s heroine’s love of gothic literature. Telling the same story from two characters’ perspectives doesnt always work, but Cassandra’s daydreams are amusing and light, the characters are well drawn and the romance is familiar without becoming cliched.
Being compared to Jane Austen? WOOT!!!! Thank you, Michelle W.!
