Romantic Adventures in Bath!

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Source: Review Copy from Author

If you haven’t already heard, Jane Odiwe has written three sensational time-slip novels about Jane Austen, the people in her life, and her writing:

In Searching for Captain Wentworth, readers travel back to 1802 to learn more about Jane Austen’s “silent” Bath years and perhaps fall in love with one of her brothers!

In Project Darcy, Ms. Odiwe takes readers to Steventon in 1796, where readers encounter Tom Lefroy and observe a beautifully plausible romance!

And in her latest time-slip tale, Searching for Mr. Tilney, Ms. Odiwe transports readers back to 1788-1789, where we witness both Cassandra and Jane Austen experience their first tastes of love!

NOTE:  Each novel is standalone, and does not need to be read in any particular order.

Our main heroine in this tale, Caroline Heath, is a fashion student with an affinity for Jane Austen. And her story begins in the winter of 1975, when she travels to Bath with family friends and finds an old journal that she concludes must have belonged to Jane Austen! The journal dates from 1788 and tells the important events and exchanges between Jane and Cassandra and their cousins while traveling to Kent and Bath. But in addition to reading this illuminating journal, Caroline experiences moments where she feels herself transported to Jane Austen’s world and in the body of Cassandra Austen! How is this possible?!? Continue reading »

Hi readers!  I’m so excited to welcome back Jane Odiwe to Austenesque Reviews today!  If you are a long-time reader of this blog, then you know I’m a big fan of her writing!  I asked Jane to come visit today to celebrate her new release, Jane Austen Lives Again!  This story takes place in the 1920’s, has Jane Austen as a main character who becomes a governess and sounds completely fabulous!  I hope you enjoy the enticing excerpt share with us today.   Jane Odiwe

Thank you so much for hosting me on your blog today, Meredith, it’s always a pleasure to visit you and tell you a little something about the latest book I’ve been writing. In my new novel, Jane Austen Lives Again, Jane is given another chance to continue with her writing life when a descendant of her doctor brings her back to life. The only problem is that she finds she has returned to a different time and age – it is the 1920s, and she must get a job to support herself. Miss Austen has little opportunity for employment so when her doctor finds her a position as a governess she feels there is little she can do but accept the position. At least she’ll be able to use her free evenings to write all the books she wants… or so she thinks… Continue reading »

Hi readers!  Sorry this monthly update is so brief…but Netherfield has been finished at last!!!!  If all goes well Mr. Bingley and I will sign the papers next week and then move in!

With the busyness of packing, house meetings, and buying some new items (bar stools, bookshelveswasher and dryer!), I’m afraid blogging and reading are pushed aside momentarily. :/

This past month was crazy and exciting, the house made a lot of progress in such a short amount of time!  Here are some of our recent photos!
