5.0 out of 5 stars Full of historical charm... 4 Aug. 2011
Format:Hardcover
Jane Austen Stole My Boyfriend is a charming historical tale which tells the story of Jenny Cooper - who was very possibly Jane's best friend. This novel follows on from the romantic endeavours of I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend. I recommend you read the books in the correct order so that you can fully appreciate the sheer delights of this imagining of Jane's life. This review has spoilers for the first book. So be warned...

Jenny and Jane are very excited at the beginning of the novel. The handsome and gallant Captain Thomas Williams has proposed marriage and Jenny has accepted. But this would not be a truly romantic story if the tale ended there. A true story of love must involve many obstacles. The hero and the heroine must conquer all the trials in order to be rewarded with love.

Jenny's brother, Edward-John, is a stuffy and weak-spined man. He is far too influenced by his wife Augusta (what a perfect name for a hideous old witch) and she encourages him to prevent the engagement. As her legal guardian, Edward-John has the final say over who may marry young Jenny. Heartbreak and much sobbing ensue but of course the wonderful Captain Williams does not take no for an answer. Let's hear a young for the naval hero!

This story is told through Jenny's journal. Her jotting about entertaining conversations, events and Jane's stories move the plot along. There are also the letters she exchanges with her beaux. But perhaps this is a little more Jane's story than Jenny's. We know that Jenny has found an eligible man who will make his fortune. The same cannot be said of Jane. She, as one might imagine, is a flighty and rather intoxicating girl to be around.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brill and a real thrill :) 17 Jun. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow! I was absolutely thrilled by the book!!! After reading the first I thought the second would be rubbish but it was really entertaining and a enjoyable read. The book made me laugh and cry and it was soooooo romantic in some bits.

I love the relationship between Jane and Jenny (who is really called Jane to but if you had two janes' in a story it would become confusing!). Cora Harrison portrays the characters very well and you feel as if you are almost in the book! I absolutely love Eliza who is the French Cousin. She's so flirty!!!

I love it when a book makes you extend thoughts about what happens after the end of a book. This certainly did! I do wish Cora would do a squeal. I absolutely love the diary format as well. This book kept me up till twelve a couple of nights and so did the first.

It will be easier to read no.1 first and then book no.2 so you can completely understand and enjoy both stories.

Recommended read for 9+ enjoy :)

Loved the first book, and this one too!!! I love the mix between facts and the way the author tweaks them to make the whole story that bit more interesting. I love the friendship between Jane and Jenny; it truly warms my heart. I story line of Captain Thomas and Jenny is truly endearing and romantic, pleas continue to write these type of books. A very huge fan!xxx

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely 13 Jan. 2013
By Henners
Format:Kindle Edition
Not as good as the previous book, but charming and enjoyable just the same. What makes it worth reading is Jenny's clearly portrayed voice and details such as the subtle references to Jane's later novels, not the actual plot. A light girly read, more appealing to the imagination than mist "literature" aimed at my demographic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Romantic and Reflective 17 Mar. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like the detailed explanations around the buildings and streets of Bath as I can visit and relate to them. The buying, fitting and wearing of the Ball Gowns is fun as is also the talk in and about the Balls which happen on a regular basis

5.0 out of 5 stars Could not put down 31 Aug. 2012
By Lisa
Format:Paperback
11 year old daughter bought this after reading the previous book. She thoroughly enjoyed it, simply could not put it down & had it finished in two days. She is now reading 'Emma' by Jane Austen & whilst very different, she is hooked!
