The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen is one of those shaggy dog books that everyone’s written and thought about sending out. The kind of drawer-fic where you and Jane Austen are super best friends and you and your internet pal are totally going to save the world with her help; also the hot professor you have a crush on is totally into you! Letting agent Rosemary Wallace is your average Janeite, trying to rent out a room in the home where Austen once lived while planning to pick up her American friend Morgan at the airport. Morgan and Rosemary have a whole host of weekend plans ahead of them – it’s the annual Austen festival in Bath and they’re planning on seeing the sights, sipping every cup of tea and whirling through the day in empire-waisted dresses - but first Rosemary needs to get through the showing of the flat that lies where Jane’s home once stood. And the viewer happens to be television archeological paranormalist Dr. Aiden Trevellyan – the man on whom she has a massive crush she’s awful at hiding, bless her.
