The intriguing title of the book made me choose this book. As a big fan of Jane Austen’s writing, I wanted to know what this book was. This is a Jane Austen inspired comical account of a tale where the protagonist Courtney Stone suddenly wakes to find herself inside the bedchamber of an unknown woman in Regency England after a broken engagement. She is far away from her home in Los Angeles and seems to occupy a body of another woman. Courtney is stuck into another woman’s and is also forced to pretend that she is another woman.

The book has some enchanting anecdotes from the Austen world about chamber pots, the elaborate gowns, dirty coaching inns of those times. There also is the strict code of conduct for single women, chaperones and marriages of convenience.

It has a subtle humour with charming descriptions of the balls in Assembly rooms, journeys to London and Bath and the interactions between Courtney and Mr. Edgeworth.

This is a delightful book for Jane Austen’s fans.
