I thought that this was pretty good, but I wouldn’t say that it was my favourite. I liked that it was a spin-off of Bridget Jones’s Diary (a spin-off of Pride and Prejudice), and I thought that it made it more interesting. I’m really happy that Liz chose Wes in the end, but I was also rooting for Michael. As far as rom-cons go, this was really good and I found it to be quite enjoyable. I don’t think I’ll read anymore from Lynn Painter, but this was still good.
