A teenage girl enters a carriage in Central Park and disembarks in Victorian, England.
Cursed by her sister Brooke, Alexis Powell arrives in the Victorian Era where she meets Ezra, who was recently murdered by an assassin his brother Amos hired. Now a supernatural creature, Ezra sees into Alexis’ mind with a touch and Intrigued by her memories, offers his help only to be rebuffed for his kindness. Alexis runs away, but Ezra is unable to shake off what he saw. He follows her through the streets of London.
Vulnerable after the death of his Father, his brother’s harassment, and Alexis’ many rejections, Ezra decides to stop following her. Alexis is unable to find work or food. Facing starvation, she steals a tomato and Ezra finds her facing the local magistrate and an angry mob. He pays for her freedom.
Finally accepting the help Ezra offers, Alexis moves into the manor he shares with his brother. Romance blossoms but the bond between Ezra and Amos is worse than Alexis’ relationship with Brooke.
While Ezra and Alexis search for a way to send her home, Amos looks for a way to kill them.

Please welcome The Carriage author Jena Baxter to Diane’s Book Blog.
What is your favorite part of The Carriage?
That’s a difficult decision and I can’t give too much away, but I loved the day after the first night Alexis stayed as a guest in Ezra’s manor. They get into their first fight. It’s a sad moment but there’s a good deal of humor blended into it too.
If you were stranded on a desert island which of your characters do you want by your side?
Definitely Ezra. Who wouldn’t want to be alone on a desert island with such a handsome, level-headed and strong gentleman?
If you could be best friends with one of your characters, who would it be?
I have to say Ezra again. The level-headed side I mentioned would be helpful when I need someone to talk to.
What is your typical day like?
I always check facebook first thing in the morning, then my writing group. After that it’s all about critiquing, writing, blogs, or planning.
How do you overcome writer’s block?
I have a few friends that are excellent plotters. Usually writer’s block is a lack of direction. They always give me more content than I need.
What do you prefer paperback, hardcover, or ebooks?
I love the smell of a new hard or paperback book, touching the crisp pages, getting ticked off if a tear should land and blur the print. But I rarely have time for it so I usually read with my ipad.
Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
Feel free to send questions or thoughts to one of my author sites, Author Central or Goodreads. I appreciate feedback and love hearing from fans.
