About the Book:
Rose Wallace thought her time-travelling adventures were over. Jane Austen is about to prove her wrong. After becoming trapped in present-day Bath due to a mishap with her time-travelling charm, Jane Austen is safe and sound back in the 1800s thanks to Rose’s help. Now, Rose is ready to focus on her fledgling romance with dreamy Dr Aiden Trevellyan. But when Jane reappears in the present, it looks like Rose and Aiden have no choice but to follow her back to 1813. Staying in the Austen household, Rose and Aiden are introduced to a number of interesting figures from the past, including Jane’s eccentric – and surprisingly modern – neighbour. Suddenly Rose’s life is in need of a re-write as she discovers some unexpected ties to Jane Austen's world and her past.
It was wonderful to revisit this series. I love Jane Austen and read the first book so this was a no-brainer for me. I was completely absorbed in this tale from the first page. The characters are so well developed, I honestly feel like I could be best friends with all the women in this book...especially Jane and Cass Austen.
This book shows us what is really important in life such as love, family and friendships. The story flows effortlessly and moves along at a comfortable pace. I loved the weaving together of the different lives, time frames and the little surprises that I never saw coming.
The beautifully worded descriptions of time and place will make you feel in the moment, with realistic conversations, descriptions of food and drink that make you laugh and a story-line that brings everything together. An enjoyable read.
Thank you NetGalley, Ada Bright, Cass Grafton, Canelo and Escape for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
