Short story but the length was perfect; not rushed, not slow. Stories that are narrated through letters can be tricky, but here it works excellent. I like how different this little book is from her other books, yet when you are reading it, it is obvious it is Jane Austen. Her MC is a villain, a very charming yet cunning one. I almost was rooting for her during the whole story, because the characters that surrounded her were nice, but very weak (Frederica) and silly (Reginald... and well, basically all the other men).
