Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict

Confessions of a Jane Austen AddictConfessions of a Jane Austen Addict
Author:  Laurie Viera Rigler
Publisher: Penguin Plume
Publication date:  June 2009

Donated by: Penguin Plume

After nursing a broken engagement with Jane Austen novels and Absolut, Courtney Stone wakes up and finds herself not in her Los Angeles bedroom or even in her own body, but inside the bedchamber of a woman in Regency England. Who but an Austen addict like herself could concoct such a fantasy? Not only is Courtney stuck in another woman’s life, she is forced to pretend she actually is that woman; and despite knowing nothing about her, she manages to fool even the most astute observer. But not even her level of Austen mania has prepared Courtney for the chamber pots and filthy coaching inns of nineteenth-century England, let alone the realities of being a single woman who must fend off suffocating chaperones, condom-less seducers, and marriages of convenience. This looking-glass Austen world is not without its charms, however. There are journeys to Bath and London, balls in the Assembly Rooms, and the enigmatic Mr. Edgeworth, who may not be a familiar species of philanderer after all. But when Courtney’s borrowed brain serves up memories that are not her own, the ultimate identity crisis ensues. Will she ever get her real life back, and does she even want to?

I posted my review on Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict just now, and will be sending out the book tomorrow morning (I'll post the DC at that time as well).

I mailed it out Friday to the next recipient -- I used UPS because of recent bad luck going through the USPS, so here's the UPS tracking number: 1ZE513W80206949336.

It should be there on Thursday or Friday, thanks!
