    Until the ending seuence the book was 4 stars for me So many bits and pieces of the book reminded me of Pride and Prejudice in a good way I was delighted to relive the joy of reading PP I love a damsel that's not easily taken in by the hero or faints at the first sight of him Arabella though inexperienced and uite innocent had a sharp mind and acute self awareness She guarded her heart well for good reasons agains

But by then it was too late I ha
