Release Date: December 1, 2020
At nineteen years of age, Julia Weston fancies herself a capable woman, far too old to require a traveling companion. But at the insistence of her overprotective father, Julia finds herself aboard the Orient Express in the care of an approved escort. In an ill-advised demonstration of independence, Julia leaves the train on a quick errand and then re-boards and sleeps away her exhaustion. Upon awakening, however, she realizes her plan went terribly awry: she boarded the wrong train and is now stranded alone in the French countryside of Provence.
Now she must rely on the help of Luc Paquet, a young French farmer who offers her accommodations with his aunt while Julia awaits the next train to Paris in five days’ time. As she settles into the rhythms of the household alongside Luc and his aunt, Julia learns more than she ever dreamed she would about France, farm life, and her handsome rescuer. There is more to Luc than meets the eye, and their chemistry is undeniable. But Julia and Luc are from different worlds, and all too soon, the train will bear Julia back to a life that suddenly feels incomplete.

When I saw the cover of Wrong Train to Paris and read the description, I was intrigued. So I took a chance on new to me author, Jennifer Moore, and I'm delighted I did!
Julia Weston thinks she knows best. She resents having a chaperone accompany her to Paris on the Orient Express, for she is convinced she is perfectly capable of travelling alone. But after boarding the wrong train after disembarking to run an errand, she ends up in the middle of nowhere and learns the hard way why she needed a chaperone.
After finding Julia alone at a deserted train station, Luc Paquet has mercy on her and brings Julia home to his Aunt Gabi, who welcomes her with open arms. Julia must wait five days before the next train arrives and decides that Aunt Gabi and Luc need help organizing their lives.
Never stick your nose where it isn't needed.
Julia's good intentions soon go awry, and in the process of trying to rectify her mistakes, her relationship with Luc grows. I love how both characters were able to grow and learn from each other. Their love story is one I will miss.
My only disappointment with this book is that it is listed as Christian fiction, yet God is not mentioned (except for grace at a meal). Hence the four stars.
If you like historical romance and a clean read, you will enjoy this book!
