Firstly, this felt like two books rather than one, since it follows two love stories. They were interrelated, in that the characters knew each other and it took place at the same location, but it really almost felt like two books, since one story line didn't ever truly effect the other.The ending was meh. It wasn't that satisfactory for me, but it could also be because I felt like this book was too long. By the time I got over half way I started skimming the descriptions of a lot of the Austen stuff (like when they visit her house or her grave, etc.) to get to the parts where the characters are interacting again. I kind of feel like the girl characters were stupid. They overreacted to things, they didn't think things through and they just did whatever basically because the author needed to add some tension. Content advisory: There is sex in this book, but it's all the "fade-to-black" type of scenes, where nothing is really described but you know they did it.
