Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict – Laurie Viera Rigler

Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict

As I read this book on a plane, I’m not sure that I have done it justice!

It was an interesting premise – 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 – there is some talk of a gypsy at a fair and time not being linear etc.


The culture shock of a modern girl living in  Regency England is fabulous – 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 – what happens to Courtney? Does she ‘get with’ Wes? How exactly does Jane come back? Where was Jane when Courtney was in her body? (Was she in Courtney’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.

Next to be read … Lost in Austen
