New in Paperback!

I enjoyed this fun, quick read and I know you will too. Laurie Viera Rigler's novel is now in paperback which means when you grab your latte at Barnes and Noble, you can pick up this book too. If you love Jane Austen, want to escape to another time and place and/or are a book addict, then this novel is for you.

Here is the official write up:
CONFESSIONS OF A JANE AUSTEN ADDICT is the comical tale of a modern Los Angeles woman, Courtney Stone, who’s trying to heal a broken heart with Jane Austen novels and Absolut. One morning, she wakes to find herself in early nineteenth-century England, in another woman’s body. Nothing can prepare 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, condomless 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?”

Here's a homage to all Jane Austen movies I found on YouTube. It puts me in the mood for renting Jane Austen movies for days on end. Ahhhh, I love romance.
