If Jane Austen had the choice between the heart and the pen, what do you think she would do?

At age twenty-eight, Jane Austen should be seeking a suitable husband, but all she wants to do is write. She is forced to take extreme measures in her quest to find true love – which lands her in the most extraordinary of circumstances.

Magically, she finds herself in modern-day England, where horseless steel carriages line the streets and people wear very little clothing. She forms a new best friend in fading film star Sofia Wentworth, and a genuine love interest in Sofia’s brother Fred, who has the audacity to be handsome, clever and kind-hearted.

She is also delighted to discover that she is now a famous writer, a published author of six novels and beloved around the globe. But as Jane’s romance with Fred blossoms, her presence in the literary world starts to waver. She must find a way to stop herself disappearing from history before it’s too late.

A modern-day reimagining of the life of one of the world’s most celebrated writers, this wonderfully witty romantic comedy offers a new side to Jane’s story, which sees her having to choose between true love in the present and her career as a writer in the past.

My review:

I thought Jane in Love had a really interesting plot idea! I really liked how Jane Austen time traveled and how the book focused on that. I thought that was different from other romance books. It made me almost want to try Jane Austen books sometime.

I didn’t really feel a connection with the romance, I was more interested with the other things that were going on in the book. I liked the focus on the friends in the story. It was still a good story!

Overall this was a three star rating. Thank you Netgalley and publishers for giving me the chance to read and review this book! My thoughts and onions are my own.

Thank you for reading!
