I liked the love story between Griff and Freddy. Very nicely done. Romantic and enjoyable. The idea of 'the Austen Playbook', both app and live show, was a good one and worked well.
Unfortunately the secondary plot was overly complicated and contained several slightly ridiculous, unbelievable coincidences and clunky plot devices. There was also a confusingly large cast of secondary characters who at times were a distraction to me.
But overall, it was an enjoyable read. I just had to ignore the little voice saying 'yeah, right, as if.....', and go with the flow. If you can do that, you'll probably enjoy this book too.
The first two books of the series are still my favourites, but I did like this one better than the previous one (Leo & Trix). I am a fan of this author’s dialogue and humour. There’s been a significant price increase from the last book to this one, I almost didn’t buy it. I’m glad I read it, but I’m not sure it was worth the price.
