Publisher's Description

"Know your own happiness. You want nothing but patience - or give it a more fascinating name, call it hope." 
― Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility


Just a few years after their father’s business scandal shatters their lives, Jane and Celia Woodward find themselves forced out of their San Francisco tea shop. The last thing Jane wants is to leave their beloved shop on Valencia Street, but when Celia insists on a move to Austin, Texas, the sisters pack up their kid sister Margot and Jane’s tea plants, determined to start over yet again.

But life in Austin isn’t all sweet tea and breakfast tacos. Their unusual living situation is challenging and unspoken words begin to fester between Jane and Celia. When Jane meets and falls for up-and-coming musician Sean Willis, the chasm grows deeper.

While Sean seems to charm everyone in his path, one person is immune – retired Marine Captain Callum Beckett. Callum never meant to leave the military, but the twin losses of his father and his left leg have returned him to the place he least expected—Texas. 

In this modern spin on the Austen classic, Sense and Sensibility, the Woodward sisters must contend with new ingredients in unfamiliar kitchens, a dash of heartbreak, and the fragile hope that maybe home isn't so far away.

Editorial Reviews

"Packed with charm, wit, and a thoroughly satisfying romance, Jane of Austin made me want to pick up and move myself down to Texas. Dear reader, put the kettle on, mix up some scones, and be the heroine of your book club by bringing Jane to this month’s meeting."
—Kimberly Stuart, author of the Heidi Elliott series and Sugar: A Novel

"Jane of Austin offers readers a fresh and contemporary take on a beloved classic. What a delight to enjoy Austen in this new modern way and find the characters and story as approachable, relevant, and engaging as the classic that has captured our hearts and sensibility for more than two hundred years. Heroine Jane’s quirky brightness brings this rich tale of love, life, music, and tea to life—and leaves you yearning for more!"
—Katherine Reay, author of Dear Mr. Knightley and A Portrait of Emily Price

"Quirky and charming, Jane of Austin goes down like a perfect cuppa. I was enchanted!"
—Teri Wilson, author of Unleashing Mr. Darcy, now a Hallmark Channel original movie

"I love a story that I can savor, and this delicious charmer has it all—a swoon-worthy hero, unrequited love, quirky and loveable secondary characters, and a heroine you want to root for! (Not to mention many delicious recipes!) When tea-shop owner Jane and her sisters move to Austin looking for a new future, she has no idea that love is waiting for her too. The only problem is, she’ll have to get her heart broken to find it. Beautifully written, a keeper of a story, and the perfect beach read!"
—Susan May Warren, USA Today best-selling, RITA Award–winning author of the Montana Rescue series

"Tea and Texas make for a delicious reading recipe in Hillary Manton Lodge’s Jane of Austin! Hillary’s writing is seamless and sophisticated. I was charmed by everything I learned through this story about tea and tea making. And I was invested in the lives and loves of Jane and her sisters. I thoroughly enjoyed this tale of new beginnings, sisterhood, and healing."
—Becky Wade, author of True to You

"Hillary Manton Lodge’s modern twist on Sense and Sensibility will delight Jane Austen fans and contemporary romance fans alike. Jane of Austin is filled with warmth, wit, charm, and the kinds of unforgettable characters that will have you cheering some on and ready to wring the necks of others. I’m telling my friends to make it one of their summer must-reads!"
