    Highly recommended!

    A witty, engrossing and entertaining novel, it kept me hooked till the end. I liked the mix of fantasy and women's fiction, the fleshed out characters and the descriptions. I look forward to reading other books by this author. Highly recommended! Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

    Austen through time

    I love Jane Austen. The premise of her time travelling and being stuck in the future and the change to the world that would result intrigued me. It took a while to get into but overall it was a very enjoyable read. I loved the friendship between Morgan and Rose and then Rose and Jane. The writing flowed very well and you could not tell it was two authors telling the story. I would have liked more of the Rose and Aidan story though. The ending was a cliffhanger of sorts and I hope there are more adventures to come.

    Enjoyable Read

    How significantly can one person alter the flow of time? How much is our life affected by small moments and new discoveries in our youth? Are good stories capable of changing the world? The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen, co-written by two authors, asks these questions and more, and generally answers them with an enthusiastic, "Yes!" Two women in the present day, fans of Jane Austen who connected online, meet in Bath, England during the Jane Austen Festival. One, Rose, is shy and demure. Morgan, visitor from overseas, is bubbly and outgoing. Their friendship begins to grow as the festival gets underway, and both women feel as if romance might bud during the festival. Yet, fate has another plan as a mysterious stranger changes Rose and Morgan's plans and sends them on an unforgettable journey. Stretching across time and asking questions about the impact of stories on our lives, these two women, as well as the mysterious stranger, must come to grips with their changed surroundings. For us as readers, we are also asked to pause and reflect on our own lives, and how they might be different if we were placed in the shoes of the characters. I enjoyed that this book became more than just a story, and asked me to think about my own past, even as the characters grappled with their own. The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen is a delight, one that bridges the now, the then, and the maybe in our friendships, and our hearts.

    Enjoyable

    3.5 stars I would classify this as a romance novel, a genre I don't normally read, but I got sucked in on the Jane Austen and the time travel twist and I am glad I did. It was a cheery fun book even if I had to keep reminding myself that the two main characters in the book were in their early 20's and just starting life and that's why they were so silly about men. And they were silly- blushing when a man looked at them type of thing. This is set in Bath during the Jane Austen festival and I enjoyed it. I have been to Bath and seen many of the sites mentioned in the book so that was fun. I have even been to Chawton and vividly remember the cafe with all the teacups hanging from the ceiling. I loved the description of the festival and all the participants dressed in costume. Rose works as a holiday home rental agent with a niche in Jane Austen related rentals. Her best friend, Morgan, has come from the States to visit. This is the first time they have met in person. Their contact is an on-line Jane Austen forum. They both fall madly in love with two men and the story chronicles their struggle to establish a relationship (in a week mind you) with them. Jane Austen has done some time traveling and ends up living upstairs from Rose. She makes a living selling her belongings because they are now Jane Austen related antiques. I found this very funny. There is a horrible mistake and suddenly the world has never heard of Jane Austen. It's amazing to read about just what an impact Austen has had on every day life. It's not only books and movies like I thought. The scramble to make things right is downright funny. In fact I enjoyed this book. It was humorous and clever. It won't change your life but it will make you smile.

    The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen

    I loved this book. I really enjoy Jane Austen's work and the different variations on her books, but this one was a bit different. And it kept me guessing. Would highly recommend it. About to start the next book...
