    A dissapointing read
    A women whose life is out of control flees to an Austen literary festival in England to find herself.

    I'm a big Austen fan so I'm always interested in new takes on Austen, her works and her readers. I usually give these books some leeway as I don't expect them to approach the greatness of the the original works, but this one was a disappointment. The characters and plot were weak and inconsistent. I found myself being more annoyed with protagonist than sympathetic and her journey to find herself was not compelling. The descriptions of the literary festival were interesting, but not enough to make the book work reading. Skip it.

    My Jane Austen Summer by Cindy Jones
    If you have read all of Jane Austen's six completed novels, including Mansfield Park, the title 'My Jane Austen Summer' will tempt you, Resist temptation here, as Jones adds nothing to understanding of Jane. This book is poorly written and its plot line is fourth-rate. If you have not read Austen's novels don't even think of wasting your time and money on My Jane Austen Summer.
