RUDE AWAKENINGS OF A JANE AUSTEN ADDICT

Image of Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict

This sequel to last year's Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict had the potential to be excessively cheesy. Instead, the humor, the compelling ridiculousness of modern life and the absolutely charming characters keep
the reader intrigued and delighted.

One morning, Jane Mansfield wakes up in modern-day Los Angeles, instead of her simple Austen-era village. Worse yet, she's inside another woman's body, living that woman's life. As Jane tries to navigate the world around her, she meets all of her "host body's" friends, including gentle, sweet Wes. Making her way through traffic and computer screens, Jane must find out why she's here, what she's meant to do and who she is meant to be. (DUTTON, Jul., 336 pp., $25.95)
