No matter the plot, no matter if the word “romance” makes you cringe, I think I mentioned at the end of my quirky little interview with Alyssa that this book is perfect for those looking for a good time. Publication New York, Kensington, It would be nice to revisit Cate and Ethan’s characters in the next ordnary of the series. I so hope she writes more.

Our heroine uses these gleaners, and abruptly her ordinary life is no more. I honestly really wanted to like this book for a couple of reasons. Sex with him since she has already taken the nice guy for a test drive? Austensibly Ordinary loosely retells Emma, using the matchmaking subplots to full comedic effect. austennsibly
In all honestly, I could have stopped reading halfway through the book. Nov 07, Chelsey Wolford rated it really liked it.
I loved the passion that the two shared and honestly wanted to give Cate a beat down for hurting Ethan. Feb 11, Austensiblh. I hope she writes one based on Sense and Sensibility Don’t hold a grudge longer than it takes to work your way through a pan of brownies all by yourself, and don’t begrudge someone an apology if they deserve it.
I made to page 60, but never cared at all for the main character. It is a refreshing departure from the typical girl-gets-trapped-in-Jane-Austen’s-England.
I could not believe Cate would call another guy I forget his name after sleeping with Ethan. And she grabs on with both hands. Cate Kendall was an excellent and inspiring heroine.
I don’t get her motivation and I was very bothered by that.
Like Emma, I questioned Cate a austenibly and enjoyed watching her come into her own and really discover her inner beauty and stop sweating the small stuff. Unless you like brooding. So when Cate decides to stir things up a bit, she gets more than she bargained for. And she grabs on with both hands… Before she knows it, Cate has invented an alter ego with an attitude, attended some seriously chic soirees, and gotten tangled up with a delicious mystery man.
Austensibly Ordinary is really a fun, light romp into the world of Jane Austen and romance. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
Cate believing the clues were about matchmaking was clunky and awkward as the clues were so obviously about her and nothing else. Basically, she’s confused and a lot of things change that austensbly was in no way prepared to handle.

I loved her banter and austensinly. After two years of playing this game every Sunday with her best friend Ethan, she decides she needs excitement in her ordinary life. And Cate totally took them to heart and she started to step outside of her shell. Before she knows it, Cate has invented an alter ego with an attitude, attended some seriously chic soirees, and gotten tangled up with a delicious mystery man.
It’s up to your imagination. Jan 16, Ssawyer rated it did not like it Shelves: Paperbackpages. I started xustensibly because I knew from the very first chapter who she would end up austenslbly and was just curious to see how that relationship panned out.
Even Gypsy Jane herself who makes a few spectral appearances in the bathroom of a swanky hotel gets a few good jokes in.
I like my heroines proactive.
