Just received this yesterday and loving it - the relationship between Payne and Jones is great...you get straight into the story - trying not to read it too fast! Highly recommend all of Chris's books they're funny, interesting, action packed, fast moving and entertaining.
I thought this was quite interesting until Blake 'fell in love' after only 2 weeks with the girlie - I hate inappropriate sex scenes there's just no need for them - unless the author is hoping for a movie to be made.
I've been a Jane Austen fan for over 40 years and I constantly wish she had written more books. I visited the Jane Austen Centre in Bath and saw this book - I had re-read (for the 100th time!) Persuasion on my way to Bath and thought I'd give this a try - not really expecting much because I have found follow ups and imitations of Jane very poor - but I really enjoyed this - he sounded just like Captain Wentworth - I read it all in the 4 hour journey home and I'm now tempted to try Mr Darcy and Colonel Brandon's diaries. My favourite male character is Edward Ferrers from Sense and Sensibility so fingers crossed Amanda will write his too.
