When a time travelling Jane Austen gets stuck in modern-day Bath it’s up to avid Janeite Rose Wallace to save her… because she’s the only one who knows that Jane exists!
Rose Wallace’s world revolves around all things Austen, and with the annual festival in Bath – and the arrival of dishy archaeologist, Dr Aiden Trevellyan – just around the corner, all is well with the world…
But then a mysterious woman who bears more than a passing resemblance to the great author moves in upstairs, and things take a disastrous turn. Rose’s new neighbour is Jane Austen, whose time travel adventure has been sabotaged by a mischievous dog, trapping her in the twenty-first century.
Rose’s life is instantly changed – new home, new job, new friends – but she’s the only one who seems to have noticed! To right the world around her, she will have to do whatever it takes to help Jane get back home to write Rose’s beloved novels. Because a world without Mr Darcy? It’s not worth living in!
I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes
I really enjoyed reading this story written by Ada Bright and Cass Grafton. A contemporary romance that had an other worldly feel to it with a historical time slip of a difference coupled with a romance to set any readers heart to beat faster. A glorious story that is enchanting and has little moments of emotion running through it.
Rose is an obsessed Jane Austen fan and is excited for this years annual Jane Austen Festival as she is set to meet her online friend and fellow Austenite for the first time. Living and working in the city of Bath is any Jane Austen fan’s dream and Rose feels very privileged to have access to snippets of the famed author’s life close to home. However, when Rose notices a tenant of a property that Jane Austen herself once resided acting suspiciously and displaying rather uncanny characteristics to the author Rose feels like she may have met the biggest super fan ever or is there more to Jenny’s eye than we can see?
Rose is set to go on an adventure of a lifetime but fears for her life and the significance of the repercussions for the literacy world.
A gem of a read for Jane Austen fans and fans of romance novels alike. I can’t wait to read more from these two authors and I’m so excited to learn there is a follow up to this great novel.
A proud bookworm since childhood, Cass writes the sort of stories she loves to read – heart-warming, character driven and strong on location. Having moved around extensively and lived in three countries, she finds places inspiring and the setting of her novels often becomes as much a part of the story as her characters.
She has an over-active imagination, is prone to crying with happiness as much as she is at sadness, but when it comes to her writing she leans heavily towards the upbeat and insists on a happy ever after. As one of her favourite authors, Jane Austen, once wrote, ‘let other pens dwell on guilt and misery’.
Cass loves travelling, words, cats and wine, and enjoys them in any combination. She currently splits her time between Switzerland, where she lives with her husband, and England, where she lives with her characters.
Ada has lived all her life in Southern California, which makes her intolerant to any weather above or below 72 degrees Fahrenheit. She grew up much more fond of reading than sports or socializing and still tends to ignore everyone she loves, all her responsibilities and basic life needs when she’s in the middle of a book.
She is luckily married to a handsome and funny man who doesn’t mind that the laundry never gets put away and she has three amazing children. Ada spent over a decade as a photographer before dedicating herself to writing, though she still believes that life should be documented well and often.
There is nothing she loves more than a good, subtle love story whether it be in real life, tv, movie, theatre or book form… well, except cake. She also really loves cake.
