Another wonderful collaboration between Ms. Bright and Ms. Grafton in the adventures of a time traveling Jane Austen! I was completely charmed by this second novel and don't tell anyone, but I think they have outdone themselves with this one! I loved it! I strongly recommend that you read the first book, 'The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen', as 'The Unexpected Past' picks up immediately after it.

I really like the writing style and characters and general storyline of both this book and The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen. It's really cute and clever, and both books were quick, easy reads. I liked the first one more because I felt like it had more of a plot though. I think this one started off with a good idea, there was just less places for it to go than the first one. The "mystery" of Jane's ...more

This book has all the charm of the first one, only this time around, some of the characters travel to the past at Jane Austen’s request. I enjoyed seeing the Austen family brought to life, and it was particularly interesting for me as I lived in Alton (very close to Chawton) for most of my life. The various people were all ...more
I received an ARC (advance reader copy) and would like to let other readers know how I perceived it.
For me it was super easy to get friendly with all the characters again, and particularly agreeable to meet new characters, especially those whom I have been almost acquainted with for such a long time.
This time travel novel ...more
This book, however, tried to send the heroine back to the past, and while the Chawton setting felt meticulously researched, neither the language nor the behavior of the Austens or their modern guests felt accurate. Although we saw Jane in her own turf, she stayed pretty ...more
One thing that bothers me about these books is the unnatural latch that Rose and Morgan have. While Rose is in the past all she can think about is getting word to Morgan, it's almost obsessive at times. Then while the girls are separated they are constantly writing pretty worthless letters misusing ...more

It's an excellent read, I look forward to reading other books by this ...more
Rose, Aidan find themselves well and truly in the Austen circle of friends. Jane has brought Rose back to meet a neighbour of hers. How will Rose feel about meeting this stranger?
Whilst I loved reading about the Austen family, their surroundings etc I did feel this book dragged on in certain places and it didn't grab me as much as the previous book.
A light easy read.
I was very much wrapped up in the world building. The authors bring the world to life what and help
the reader to imagine what it would be like to slip back in time to the regency period. I learned a few ...more
