A thrilling literary mystery costarring Jane Austen from the New York Times bestselling author of The Bookman’s Tale Charlie Lovett first delighted readers with his New York Times bestselling debut, The Bookman’s Tale. Now, Lovett weaves another brilliantly imagined mystery, this time featuring one of English literature’s most popular and beloved authors: Jane Austen. Book lover and Austen enthusiast Sophie Collingwood has recently taken a job at an antiquarian bookshop in London when two different customers request a copy of the same obscure book: the second edition of Little Book of Allegories by Richard Mansfield. Their queries draw Sophie into a mystery that will cast doubt on the true authorship of Pride and Prejudice—and ultimately threaten Sophie’s life. In a dual narrative that alternates between Sophie’s quest to uncover the truth—while choosing between two suitors—and a young Jane Austen’s touching friendship with the aging cleric Richard Mansfield, Lovett weaves a romantic, suspenseful, and utterly compelling novel about love in all its forms and the joys of a life lived in books.

*I received this in a Goodreads “First Reads” giveaway*Sophie Collingwood grew up in a house where the library door was usually locked and the room itself was used to impress guests. No one ever read the books. Sophie never understood this, as she was an avid reader who would have loved nothing mo...

Sophie is a twit. One of the biggest twits I've read recently. Just no. So much emphasis on the sex? Taking everything Winston says at face value? Zero questioning of anyone around her other than Smedley? Instalove at the end? SO MUCH FAINTING? And the Americanisations (math instead of maths, pant...

5.0 First Impressions: Or, A Cautionary Tale of Pride and Prejudice
One of my favorite reads of 2014. The two story lines, moving between the past and current, was masterful. Kept me reading and guessing right until the end.

1.0 This just wasn't very good
I was intrigued, although not overly impressed after reading Lovett's debut, The Bookman's Tale. Books about people who love, work with, use books daily? Works for me! After seeing Lovett would come out with another book, I thought to see if maybe his writing would get better as time went on. Soph...
