Yes…this is a Pride and Prejudiceinspired novel that takes place on a soap opera set. Yes…there is plenty of melodrama, but it isn’t overdone or cheesy. And, yes…even if you aren’t really into daytime dramas and over-the-top romance novels (I’m not a fan of either myself) you will find much pleasure and enjoyment in this clever and inventive adaptation! I sure did!
