The Season by Jonah Lisa Dyer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I had really high hopes for this. I read it quickly because the writing came across really young. Even though the main character was in her 20s, she came across as 16.
First and foremost I love the Austen's Pride and Prejudice storyline. This one was just too close to the original plot that it fell flat. Anyone can update and move story to Dallas, TX. Editing could've been tighter. Age the character with her language and movements. It was full of promise, but left me with a bad taste in my mouth. One thing Austen was master at was nuance and nuances. Her keen wit is hard to copy and emulate. Probably shouldn't be done.
