Julia Allen is a waitress by day, painter by night, and…a famous 1800s authoress on weekends?
Moonlighting as Jane Austen for a historical open house is a strange hobby for a contemporary artist, but Julia loves the role–until she falls asleep and gets locked inside after all the visitors are gone! Rushing home from the dark, historical mansion, she collides with a stranger in the snowy park, and discovers later her shortcut cost her the rare copy of Austen’s Northanger Abbey borrowed from a friend’s treasured collection.
Book historian Eliot Weston thinks he imagined the Regency-era figure, but the book he finds in her wake proves otherwise. The first edition of Jane Austen’s novel is authentic and incredibly rare, but he fails to find any trace of its owner. Reminders of the unusual encounter keep popping up, however, like the pretty modern artist eager to buy an identical volume. Coincidence? Or Divine intervention making it clear this is anything but an ordinary Christmas for these two hearts?

This is one of those stories that’s a crossover from bygone days to contemporary (without time travel). I can well imagine lovers of historical
titles would enjoy this as much as contemporary fans (of which I am one).rnrnJulia Allen is a women of many talents and interests. Waitress by day,
artist by night, and historical actress on weekends, what a combination! But somehow, this strange mix suits her as we get to know Julia with all her
quirky leanings and insecurities. What an interesting character to delve into! Thank goodness most of the story is through her eyes! I probably never
would have figured out what was going on otherwise!rnrnAnd poor Doctor Weston, trying his best to do what’s right, and being misunderstood because
of it. They’ll make the perfect mismatched pair if they can ever get on the same page!rnrnLoved the story!
