A little over the top at times, but super cute. In comparison with her Pride and Popularity, this one didn't seem to have as many references to the Austen book, but there were enough there to make me laugh. Like Northanger Abbey, this book is also pretty tongue in cheek about people who are a little too serious about their fiction. While she's immature at first, Claire does grow up and learns that living a real life is better than what's in a book. Fun read!
