Can a book about a fictional Jane Austen be enjoyed by people outside the regency/Austenite world? Let me give you Exhibit A- Christopher Lee Deards, a book reviewer who enjoys mostly horror, science fiction, and fantasy. Well, he just read the book and said:
Scott’s novel ate into my precious sleep time…. What hooked me though, and what I think would hook any reader, no matter their genre preference, is the witty, fun and genuine dialogue…. Scott’s Jane is the kind of woman most men would love to meet some day. She is strong, witty, kind and intelligent…. She is one of the more enjoyable characters I have read in literature in some time.
You can read the entire review on his website here.

I hope you will check it out!
Well, I was surprised at how much I liked the story. While at work I thought an thought about how much I’d rather be reading the story. I wanted to see what would happen with Jane.
Looking forward to reading Maximilian Standforth and the Case of the Dangerous Dare
My gut feeling is that Max will be a book people love or hate, I don’t think there will be a middle mark for it. Personally, I love surprising books like that.
