My first taste of author Scott Southard was through his book “A Jane Austen Daydream”, which I loved, so I don’t know what I was really expecting from this book. Not at all like Jane Austen. This book proved to me the writing skill of Mr. Southard! I believe the man has quiet the imagination, albeit a twisted one. Maximilian Standforth is a mystery in the likes of Sherlock Holms, but with a case that, possibly, even he couldn’t solve. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and give it 5 stars.
I was given a copy of this book by the author, Scott Southard, who is a new author for me. I happen to be a Jane Austen fan, but her own true life story was a little sad. “Jane Austen Daydream” gives an alternate version of what her life may have been like, written in a similar way to her own works. Nice clean romance! Good writing, great characters and I would definately read more from this author. This book was well done and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I recommend this to all Jane Austen fans. I give it 5 stars.
