As I read this book on a plane, Iâ€™m not sure that I have done it justice!
It was an interesting premise â€“ a modern L.A. girl is transported into the body of a regency era woman. It is not clear, or at least to me, how Courtney turns into Jane Mansfield â€“ there is some talk of a gypsy at a fair and time not being linear etc.
The culture shock of a modern girl living inÂ Regency England is fabulous â€“ particularly the blood letting and the overnight stay in a road side inn.
The ending (well the place where the novel ends) left me confused â€“ what happens to Courtney? Does she â€˜get withâ€™ Wes? How exactly does Jane come back? Where was Jane when Courtney was in her body? (Was she in Courtneyâ€™s?)
Despite the ending, I liked this book and I recommend it to other keenAusten fans. Also, if you like the Regency era at all (like Georgette Heyer) you might like to read Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict.
