Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict (2007) by Laurie Viera Rigler is a time-travel story. I usually avoid time travel and other tricks of fantasy and science fiction, but for the sake of getting a 21st century character back into the time of our Jane it seemed worth it to take a chance on this book.
I'm glad I did. This is Rigler's first novel, but it reads like the work of an old pro. We begin with a young woman awakening from what was apparently a coma to find herself in 18th century England with the people around her believing she is Jane Mansfield (yes, I know), the daughter of a comfortably-off county family. The last she knew, Courtney Stone was living in LA and breaking up with her two-timing boyfriend and seething with anger for his friend who covered up for him.
But no matter, our heroine makes the most of her new situation, fending off a suitor who is believed to be a bit of a rake and making friends with a young woman who was a friend of the real Jane Mansfield. We never learn what happened to that woman except that at the end of the book . . .
Best I not tell you. If you like Austen, if you don't mind a little silliness in the frame of the story, and if you want a pleasant book to while away a few summer hours, Confessions is for you.
