Review: The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen by Ada Bright and Cass Grafton

Goodreads Review

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!

My Review: Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Such a charming story that gives us the possibility of meeting Jane Austen someday. The thought of being able to time travel with the iconic Jane Austen is truly amazing. She is an idol to so many people, me being one of them. Pride and Prejudice being my favorite novel.
I loved the characters in this story. Morgan being from the US was so much fun. Rose and Morgan were the perfect friends. They were always looking out for each other, which reminding me of the bond between Jane and her sister Cassandra. Their bond was so close their whole life it portrays beautifully on the characters of Morgan and Rose, plus Jane and her interaction with her sister in the past. This story couldn’t run short of romance. Dr. Aiden and James were the perfect guys that you would find in a Austen novel. They were both dreamy, smart, shy but with hidden feelings.
If you love Jane Austen and you want to re-live the Jane Austen Festival, then this book has all those amazing events, costumes, plus meeting Jane Austen and getting lost in another century with her. You will get a little stress with the possibility of not ever having those amazing novels we all have loved, but will you be happily surprised at the quick actions these characters have. This has a continuation so more Jane Austen adventures.

Author Biography from

We are two friends who love to write together!

HP Day
Pasadena – 2005

One of us has lived in California all her life, and the other has lived in three different countries, and our paths would never have crossed if it hadn’t been for a certain boy wizard (thank you J.K. Rowling)!

We’d both been dabbling in writing all our lives, but after we met in 2002 on a Harry Potter forum, it didn’t take long for us to decide we’d love to try our hands at co-writing some fan fiction together – and soon after, we realised we had something special – to us, at least – totally contrasting writing styles and methods which somehow, for some reason, just gelled!

Disapparating from Harry’s world into Regency England, we dabbled with co-writing Austen-inspired fan fiction for a while before real life left us little time (or coherent brain power) for writing.

In early 2015, we picked up our virtual pens again, however, and after a crazy, hilarious and ultimately rewarding few years, we’re finally ready to share the fruits of our labour in a series of uplifting, comedic tales of time travel, love and friendship.

The eBook of The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen was published by Canelo Digital Publishing on 12th September 2019, and the sequel follows on 7th November.

The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen is also available in paperback.

We hope you will enjoy reading our stories as much as we enjoy writing them!
