Review: What Would Jane Austen Do? by Laurie Brown (New Author Challenge)

austen-do From the back of the book:

SHE GOES BACK IN TIME TO SAVE A MAN’S LIFE…

Eleanor travels to England for a Jane Austen festival and is swept back in time to the glittering Regency era to help a part of ghostly sisters prevent a deadly duel…

BUT SHE MAY HAVE THE WRONG VILLAIN…

Lord Shermont, renowned rake and womanizer, has a ‘Napoleonic spy to capture and a dastardly crime to untangle. The last thing he needs is a scandal too…

THANKFULLY, JANE AUSTEN’S SAGE ADVICE PREVENTS A FATAL MISTAKE…

With Jane Austen’s guidance, Eleanor untangles the international intrigue going on before her eyes. But, which of the dueling gentlemen is the spy, and which is the man of her dreams?

I love all things Austen and WHAT WOULD JANE AUSTEN DO? is no exception. From the very beginning I was hooked. Eleanor is trying to put her life back together after a disastrous engagement and has traveled to England for a Jane Austen festival. After a mix up with her reservation she ends up in a haunted room, then finds herself in Jane Austen’s England with a mission to stop a duel. I loved how Eleanor fit right in with the other regency women, and also taught them a few 21st century ways to stand up for themselves. Lord Shermont is a very interesting character. After an accident takes his memory he has made his way to working for the crown trying to find a traitor. Eleanor and Shermont have a lot of chemistry. From the moment they meet they are drawn to each other. The writing in WHAT WOULD JANE DO? flows fantastically in both the current day and in the past. The descriptions of Eleanor’s adventures are fantastic. My only complaint is that the end seemed a little rushed. I would like to have read more about what Eleanor does when she returns to the present. I can’t wait to read more by Laurie Brown!!
