Book Review – Searching for Captain Wentworth

Searching for Captain WentworthSearching for Captain Wentworth by Jane Odiwe

Review: This novel takes place both in Regency and modern-day Bath. The heroine, Sophie Elliot, finds herself transported back into the body of her ancestor living in Regency Bath next door to Jane Austen’s family. Overall, I’d give it an okay.  Interestingly, I found myself more drawn to the story when it was in the modern time period. You’d think with my love for Jane Austen and especially “Persuasion,” which plays a role in the story, that I would have liked the Regency angle more. I’m not sure exactly why but the sections in Regency time seemed, maybe, long-winded. And I liked the love interest from modern-day Bath more than the one from Regency Bath. I suppose that probably has something to do with my feelings on the matter. *sheepish grin*

Okay, I admit, my first reaction when I read this was “WTF?” but upon further reflection I’m curious to see how it turns out. What do you think? Hit the comments to discuss.
