    I'm loving this series. The Orient Express, the beautiful countrysides, adventure, sweet romance, the mysterious Nicholas, family, finding oneself, gaining different perspectives, learning to trust others, finding love. I loved Julia's tenacious character. She wanted so badly to prove that she could manage on her own. But I loved her journey of growth as she realized that she didn't always know best and needed to be patient and learn as well as being willing to listen to others.

The Orient Express, the beautiful countrysides, adventure, sweet romance, the mysterious Nicholas, family, finding oneself, gaining different perspectives, learning to trust others, finding love. I loved Julia's tenacious character. She wanted so badly to prove that she could manage on her own. But I loved her journey of growth as she realized that she didn't always know best and needed to be patient and learn as well as being willing to listen to others. I loved her sweet, giving nature. She was so happy to see a need a help to fulfill it. Sometimes with unexpected consequences but I loved how she learned lessons from the unexpected consequences. I was transported to the beautiful countryside in Provence in France. I felt like I was right there with the characters through the author's beautiful writing. I want to go visit this area and just breathe in the air and feel the draw that Julia felt while being there. And Luc...oh Luc. How to describe him without giving away any spoilers? Hmmmm... He's definitely a character that is quiet and unassuming but has so much depth to him. His interactions with Julia from the beginning, sigh. And their different adventures were so fun to be along with them on while reading. I loved them together. The tender looks. The sweet friendship that grew even through the misunderstandings. The ending...oh my heart. I loved it so much! Honestly, if you love feeling like you are completely immersed in a story and setting, this book was that kind of book for me. I have loved Jennifer Moore's books since her first book was published. I have been hooked ever since and love them so much! So I might be a little biased because she is a favorite author, but even then, this book just reaffirmed to me why I love her books so much! This series has been fun. I definitely recommend it. The next two books will be released soon and I can't wait to dive into them as well. The four authors who are writing them are all authors that I love, so that adds to my excitement to read the rest of the series. They can be read as stand alone books. I did like the sneak peek for the third book that was at the end of this book. I can't wait to read it. It's going to weave in characters from the previous book and this book. Yay! But, as I say that, I'm pretty sure you'll be able to read it as a stand alone as well. Content: Squeaky clean! I received a copy from the publisher, Covenant Communications, via NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions in the review are my own. Happy Reading!!!

The content was clean, so of course I appreciated that a whole lot! In conclusion, I think if you enjoy historical fiction and romance, you’d enjoy this one.😊 *Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC. All opinions are my own.

    I fell in love with this series with the first book, It Started in Budapest, and this one didn't disappoint.

Wanting to prove she doesn't a companion, she leaves the train during one of the stops and gets back on wrong train. She ends up in a remote French village where the next train won't be back until the following week. Fortunately, she meets a young farmer who introduces her to his aunt and Julie is invited to stay there until the train comes. I liked how Julia dove right in to help and work, and she learned to not judge the people around her. There are certain funny occurrences and some sober ones, and she becomes more and more used to the countryside and the genuineness of the others. I was very impressed with the correct use of French and the French sentence structure in English. I speak French and it was very well done. Can't wait for the next one in the series! I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley and this his my honest opinion.

    I'm ready to go to France! The whole concept of finding love on the intriguing Orient Express caught me from the very start and this installment delivers more of the same.

The whole concept of finding love on the intriguing Orient Express caught me from the very start and this installment delivers more of the same. I've noticed one common character--a mysterious man by the name of Nicholas, whose pipe smells differently for different people. In this story, Julia is on her way to Paris in 1900 and while trying to prove her independence, finds herself in the middle of the French countryside. The farm life and simpler times brought up wistful, sweet feelings. Julia is adventuresome and proper, and while Luc is charming, he is all about duty and honor, which is very admirable. I loved the adventures Luc and Julia embarked on, while trying to help her reach her father in Paris. I enjoyed the setting immensely and I was especially fond of the animals. Moore does a great job of taking the reader along on this escapade with her engaging writing style. If I have one piece of advice, it's this: DON'T get off the train and DON'T listen to a man with an interesting smelling pipe! Okay, fine. What's interesting is that love wouldn't have been found without this mistake and sometimes veering off the path is exactly where you're meant to be. Content: mild romance

    This was such a sweet cute story! I liked it the more I read. I was a little irritated at Julia then I remembered she is 19 and on her own for the first time after being watched over by an overprotective father. Everything she did fit so well with a young woman learning and growing and on her own for the first time. The more I read the more I loved Julia and her well meaning mistakes.

    A sweet, sweet story that will sweep you away to turn-of-the-century Provençal France! I felt like I was there. The descriptions, the French language, the delicious side characters! Though I did suffer through some secondhand embarrassment on Julia’s behalf, I couldn’t help but enjoy her character, as I’ve always had a soft spot for the well-meaning, heedless heroine (Anne Shirley, for example).

Julia is 19 and traveling with a chaperone to join her family in Paris at the World's Fair. Like most 19 year olds, she feels she's an adult and grown up enough that she shouldn't have a chaperone. While at a stop, she sneaks off the train to buy a cake that she and her father always shared, but she ends up getting on a train to Provence instead of back on the Orient Express! Luckily for her, she sees Luc who gives her a ride to his aunt's home in a small village. While Julia waits for another train to come to the small town she tries to make herself useful to Luc's aunt. Julie does a wonderful job organizing the woman's kitchen, and so, with her confidence buoyed she offers to help Luc in his gardening shed. She's helpful until Luc leaves her alone to tend to something and her reorganization messed everything up and costs him precious time in getting his seedlings ready. Julia makes another costly mistake while trying to be helpful and it forces her and Luc to go on a trip where they begin to see each other in a different light. I am a Jennifer Moore fan and I'm thoroughly enjoying this series--the descriptions about the Orient Express, the different countries the books are set in, and the characters--especially Nicholas who's so mysterious. I could identify with Julia--thinking I knew what I was doing and trying to be helpful by organizing things only to find out I should've asked because I wasn't being helpful at all. I loved the descriptions of the countryside, the food (it made me want cheese), Luc's paintings, and the hubbub of the World's Fair in Paris. I liked that the story wasn't just about Julia and Luc, they also had secondary characters like the neighbors that lived next door to Luc's aunt and all those Julia and Luc interacted with on their journey to buy a goat. Jennifer Moore does slow-burn romances really well and this was no exception. I'm looking forward to the upcoming books in this series. Each book can be read alone but I think once you read one of them, you'll want to read them all. I received a complimentary copy from the publisher, Covenant Communications but bought an ebook for my personal library. All opinions expressed in my review are my own.

    The whole idea of this series is so fun! Four romances connected to the Orient Express. This one was connected to the first, It Started in Budapest, in fun little ways. I’m sure I didn’t even notice all the ways, but I did notice a few. I liked Julia. Julia wants to be on her own, not be watched over by a traveling companion. I laughed when she snuck off the train to buy cake. And then got on the completely wrong train, with the help of Nicholas.

I suspect we’ll see him in all of the other books as well. And that makes me happy. He’s a bit of a mystery that would be fun to see solved. It was fun to read about Julia’s adventures in the French countryside, as Juliette. I loved the way she was able to learn a little about how other people live. And also a little about herself. We all need to take stock of just who we are, and see if there’s something we can or should change about ourselves to be a little better. I am loving this series. Hoping for the next one soon!

Her first thing she does to prove this maturity turns out to be a huge flub. She's prepared to travel to Paris with an approved older woman chaperone. She leaves the train for a quick errand and finds herself exhausted from train travel . She'll just sleep away the exhaustion on the Orient Express when she re boards. There's just a slight problem with that when she awakens she realizes she had boarded the wrong train after her errand the night before after asking the mysterious Nicholas which train to board. She has now traveled all night hundreds of miles in the wrong direction away from Paris. Feeling overwhelmed she sees a man she had met on the platform the night before and reluctantly accepts help from him. She is rich and pampered, he's wearing worn clothing and shabby shoes. How could they possibly have anything in common? After spending time with him and his aunt she comes to realizes the heart doesn't see material things but kindness and things of the heart. Very much enjoyed! I need to read the others in this inspirational series. Pub Date 01 Dec 2020 I was given a complimentary copy of this book. Thank you. All opinions expressed are my own.

Whenever they travel together, they stop and get a certain cake and she decides to do that on her own---but gets back on the wrong train! She's ended up in Provence and the only person for miles is a man she met briefly at a train station stop. Luc is so good-hearted and takes her to his aunt's home to wait for the next train---and that's when their bumpy journey to love begins. Maybe the wrong train has led to the right man! I loved the lush descriptions of Provence and things that make that part of the world unique like the cheese. I loved all the references to the beautiful art of the period as well. But Ms. Moore shines in the slow burn romance and how tender the moments are between Luc and Julia. Luc is so sweet and his reactions to Julia's mistakes are endearing. Such a great hero in the understanding and kindness department! Julia tries so hard, but makes a lot of bad decisions. Poor Fleur! But her heart is in the right place. I loved that she was so relatable in her approach to fixing the things that have gone wrong. I also enjoyed the secondary characters of the aunt and neighbors and thought they really added a nice depth to the story. This one will definitely be going on my rainy day shelf. A sweet, tender read with a sigh-worthy ending.

    I’ve always loved France, especially the French countryside, a love that only deepened when I had the pleasure of living there for six weeks during some of my university studies.

Julia had a kind heart and vivacious spirit, always seeking to help but needing to learn that her way of doing things wasn’t always best. I thoroughly enjoyed both this journey of growth and how her experiences living in the French Provence changed her as she slows down and comes to love the simple yet charming pleasures to be found all around her. Luc was a wonderful hero, hard to read at first, but with a good heart, not to mention he’s a talented painter, which I always find sexy in a man. I loved learning more about him and watching his relationship with Julia blossom, as well as his journey in pursuing his dreams as an artist. His Aunt Gabi was another delightful and humorous character whom I thoroughly enjoyed. Although the story itself was delightful and charming, with beautiful descriptions that transported me directly to France at the turn-of-the-century, this story also touched me on a deeper level, reminding me that the true pleasures found in life are often the most simple, and one must take the time to slow down and savor all life has to offer. So not only was this story a lovely and gentle romance and a pleasant reading journey, but I felt I immersed from it inspired.

I especially loved the scene that involved a lot of rain and some goats. It's funny how the scenes with the most action and mayhem in this instance, can make you smile the most. The romance is a slow burn which I truly appreciated. It made the story more fulfilling in the long run. The wonderful descriptions of the countryside transported you there as if you could see the luscious grass and smell the beautiful flowers. This book is the second book in the Romance on the Orient Express series but it can be read all on its own. So far the first two books have been great. I can't wait to read the last two books in the series next. Author Jennifer Moore, we are so fortunate to have yet another great book from you. Don't miss out on this short novel. This clean romance can be read by all ages.

    This was such a fun escape, which was exactly what I needed. I loved the characters and the setting. I love how Jennifer Moore used the French language, but I always understood what was being said. Gabi was awesome- she made me laugh out loud several times with her nonfiltered comments. Just a lovely, sweet book.

    Julia Weston is determined to prove to her father that she is capable of looking out for herself. At nineteen years of age, she doesn't feel she needs a chaperone on the Orient Express. She decides to get off the train at their traditional stop and get a cake, the only problem is it's in the middle of the night and she has to wait for her chaperone to fall asleep.

Once she is at the train station it takes her longer than it should to find the vendor, and then the train isn't where she remembered it being. Once she finds a fellow passenger who guides her to the train, she returns to her cabin and falls asleep. Upon awakening, she realizes she is on the wrong train, many miles from Paris. She gets off the train at the next stop and realizes too late that she is stuck for a while. She tries to make the best of everything that happens, but only seems to make a mess of everything. Luc, the kind stranger that helped her in her time of need gets frustrated when she does things incorrectly in his nursery, possibly ruining olive seeds and saplings. Then they are stuck together in a wagon while they go to find a goat for Luc's neighbor. During the five days they are together they learn a lot about one another, and themselves. This is a sweet story of trust, self-discovery and finding love. It is the second book in the Romance on the Orient Express series, but they do not have to be read in order. This is a fun book that takes the reader to different areas of Europe and transports them back in time.

    An understated masterpiece of provincial romance! This absolutely lovely, sweet story is about a young woman who is determined to prove her readiness for independence & instead proves that she's got a bit to learn yet. The story is relatively simple, or understated would be more accurate, but no less engaging for that. Julia encounters Luc during her travels, & mainly because she feels judged, has some very snobbish, citified ideas about Luc who doesn't particularly care. However, when she ends up An understated masterpiece of provincial romance! This absolutely lovely, sweet story is about a young woman who is determined to prove her readiness for independence & instead proves that she's got a bit to learn yet. The story is relatively simple, or understated would be more accurate, but no less engaging for that. Julia encounters Luc during her travels, & mainly because she feels judged, has some very snobbish, citified ideas about Luc who doesn't particularly care. However, when she ends up misdirected & in the middle of nowhere, Luc reluctantly rescues her. She struggles with the humiliation of it, but she's not a brat & realizes her ingratitude. She eventually apologizes. Luc's Aunt Gabi is a bit earthy & funny, and helps to smooth things out between the two - in more ways than one. Luc is a good guy, even if he's not always happy about it, lol. And Julia is good, too, even if she's painfully clumsy about it at times. The way the two begin to see each other differently and develop a relationship seems totally believable despite the short time in which it happens. This is one of those stories that I liked even more than I expected, and know that I will be re-reading over & over again - worth every penny! *Romance level: passionate kisses, nothing graphic

    My Review: I enjoyed reading this sweet romance with its intriguing settings of the Orient Express luxury train and the beautiful French countryside of Provence.

Julia Weston is a delightful young woman who is full of confidence and lacking in experience. She makes impulsive decisions that are always well-intentioned, but don’t always work out the way she hopes they would. One of these well-intentioned decisions leads Julia to board the wrong train and she’s stuck in Provence with Luc and his great aunt until another train arrives later in the week. Julia’s experiences in the countryside are heart-warming and sometimes amusing. (I loved the episode with the goats.) Although she and Luc do not hit it off at first, they both gradually come to see how their lives could be better together. Even though she’s not a snob, Julia has to decide if she can trade her life of luxury and standing in society for a life in the country. Luc has to decide if he has the courage to claim Julia’s love and heart. However, one last impulsive act by Julia throws a barrier between them that may be insurmountable. This is one of those books that even though I wanted to know how the story ends, I was reluctant to finish it and let these characters go. I’m glad I’ll be able to read this one again. I received a copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

    Wrong Train to Paris by Jennifer Moore is a wonderful historical fiction romance that is the second book in the amazing series: Romance on the Orient Express. I loved the first book, It Started in Budapest, so I knew I had to read the newest addition. This second book most certainly lived up to all of my expectations.

I loved the first book, It Started in Budapest, so I knew I had to read the newest addition. This second book most certainly lived up to all of my expectations. This book takes place in France between rural Provence and city center Paris during the spring of 1900. Julia Weston is a young woman that is itching to prove to her father, and to herself, that she is more independent, responsible, and grown up then she has been treated by her family. While traveling to meet her father to see The World’s Fair and stay at her Grandmother’s for summer break, she tries to slip away momentarily from her elderly escort to purchase a cake at a stop, becomes lost, bumps into the elusive Nicholas from her train, and he ends up guiding her to another railway, destination, and eventual future in Provence. I love that through a simple mistake of boarding a different train, Julia’s destiny is changed. I loved it when Luc rescues her, introduces her to the wonderful, relaxed, and picturesque landscapes and pace of life at his home. Gabi is a sweet and welcoming hostess, knowing just what Julia needs: a purpose, home, and love. I love the transformation of both Luc and Julia throughout this story. Both have their faults, both seem to bring out the best in one another, and both have amazing chemistry. It was such a sweet and romantic journey. I also love the surprises at the end, and that both characters find their happiness and purpose in life. So sweet! The overarching theme of the OE, the mystical Nicholas, and his ability to be able to help deliver these lost passengers to a future that they secretly were hoping for, is so ingenious. I loved every minute of it! I cannot wait until the next book comes out! 5/5 stars Thank you EW and Covenant Communications for this wonderful ARC and in return I am submitting my unbiased and voluntary review and opinion. I am posting this review to my GR, Instagram, and Bookbub accounts immediately and will post it to my Amazon, Instagram, and B&N accounts upon publication on 12/1/20.

    Wrong Train to Paris is a pretty good, clean story that was a good read. It's a little unrealistic to think two can fall deeply in love in only five days, but other than that it is an enjoyable story. Poor Julia is trying to be mature and all grown up by leaving the train, buying a cake, then returning to the train to Paris. But she returns to the wrong train that takes her far out of the way. She sees a man she has only briefly met once, She really has no choice but to trust him. Luc takes her Wrong Train to Paris is a pretty good, clean story that was a good read.

During this time, their friendship develops, and grows deeper. She also discovers his great talent for art, and she develops a plan to showcase his beautiful pictures, which at first. angers him. He forgives her, and is surprised how well his art is received. Beautiful story I enjoyed.

    I love Provence! It is my favorite region of France and I was so excited it was highlighted in this book. Oh, I miss the fields of lavender and poppies. I am so glad Julia got herself lost in Provence. I loved her story of discovery. She had several mishaps along the way, but she was so sweet and earnest in her desire to help. Luc seems rather surly in the beginning, but you see that start to change. I wish these two every happiness. This was a sweet and touching story. This is part of a series, I love Provence!

    This is a delightful read. Main character Julia Weston is easy to root for--she's courageous, determined, and warm-hearted. She's also prone to missteps and mistakes that she does her best to remedy; I enjoyed the balance in her character. The setting of Provence is vibrant and vivid; Moore paints lovely pictures with her words. The development of the romance is skillfully done, and the ending left me with happy warm fuzzies.

Release date 12/01/2020 Publisher Covenant Communications 𝗕𝗹𝘂𝗿𝗯 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. 𝗠𝘆 𝗿𝗲𝘃𝗶𝗲𝘄 Will her need to help turn against her ... I did not pay much attention in the first book to some of the characters the heroine met, but while reading this one, everything came back. This person, Nicholas, is a very peculiar matchmaker. The story is told from Julia’s point of view. Like in the previous book, she is young and in need of acknowledgment, that she can be trusted with a bit more freedom than she is actually. But her first act of autonomy leads her to the wrong train, far away from her destination, with complete strangers. She is no silly girl, just a little spoiled by a loving parent, alas when she tries to prove she is efficient, her stubbornness changes her many acts of kindness in a mess, she takes matter in hand without second thought, which leads to some chaos. But she is not bad at heart, just gullible to not understand the scope of her actions. But with Luc, she will grow to make amends, all the while discovering a different life. He will introduce her to a world of patience, hard work and quietness. It was fun to see the south of France during this area, still favoring the ancient world with a dash of modernity. 4.5 stars I was granted an advance copy by the publisher, here is my true and unbiased opinion. https://www.facebook.com/429830134272...

At times I did get frustrated with both Julia and Luc, although I did understand where they were coming from. Julia was a little spoiled coming from a well to do family but throughout the story she grew and learned that everything can't go her way. (view spoiler)[ I loved the part with her and the goats! :) (hide spoiler)] Luc is a quiet man that makes you wonder what he is thinking. I enjoyed seeing glimpses of his history as the book progressed. I loved Gabi! She was just a fun loving character that you couldn't help but love. Altogether, This was a fun and enjoyable read. Content: Kisses. *I received this book from NetGalley in return for my honest review*

    What a fun, even magical book. This is the second book in a multi author series. The premise of this one, a girl is travelling with her companion on the Orient Express. She gets off at a specific station to go and get a cake for her father. Someone she met on the train "helps" her when she finds herself disoriented at the train station. She finds herself on the wrong train but doesn't realize it until she gets off the train and doesn't have any hope of getting to Paris in the next few days. Juli What a fun, even magical book.

She finds herself on the wrong train but doesn't realize it until she gets off the train and doesn't have any hope of getting to Paris in the next few days. Julia is a force of nature with a good heart. She likes to keep busy and she likes to help. While these are good traits, they tend to contribute to chaos around her on her adventure. She is helped by Luc when she finds herself in an unfamiliar area. Oddly enough she is introduced to Luc by the same person that "helps" her find the wrong train. This is where I think a little magic happens. I love this book. The story is fun and with a heroine who is a force of nature, the unexpected happens. We catch a glimpse of our heroine from It Started in Budapest once Julia makes it to Paris. I love the characters, I love the story, I love its heart. The story has a lot of heart and I could spend more time in this world. I will definitely be purchasing a hard copy and be reading it again. I was given an electronic copy and this is my honest review.

    A short but sweet story! I enjoyed the premise of a series set around the Orient Express. My favorite part of the book was Julia! I completely reacted to her character and her penchant for muddling things up even though she has good intentions! Luc was a bit of a mystery to me and I wish we could have seen part of the story through his eyes. The country setting was charming, the side characters were endearing, and the romance was slow burn and sweet. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and am looking A short but sweet story!
