Sacramento Book Review – October 23, 2009
“Jane is confused and completely out of her element, acting as a constant reminder of the long-gone days of Austen, with the consummate charm, reminding Austen fans why we love her masterpieces so dearly.
A cute, albeit unlikely book, Rigler’s freshman effort deserves to be applauded and enjoyed by fellow Austen addicts!

Historical Novels Review – August 1, 2009
“…this is the highly anticipated sequel to Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict… Blending humor, love, and exploration of identity and destiny, Rude Awakenings is a colorful look at this genre. The ultimate question is answered: can a 19th-century girl survive in a morally confused world? This bubbly take on literary time travel will appeal to Jane Austen and chick lit fans alike. It will be interesting to see what Rigler comes up with next.
