In My Mailbox (7)

In My Mailbox was started by The Story Siren and inspired by Pop Culture Junkie. This week's summary comes from goodreads.

Jane by April Lindner
Forced to drop out of an esteemed East Coast college after the sudden death of her parents, Jane Moore takes a nanny job at Thornfield Park, the estate of Nico Rathburn, an iconic rock star on the brink of a huge comeback. Practical and independent, Jane reluctantly becomes entranced by her magnetic and brooding employer, and finds herself in the midst of a forbidden romance. But there's a mystery at Thornfield, and Jane's much-envied relationship with Nico is tested by a torturous secret from his past.

Part irresistible romance and part darkly engrossing mystery, this contemporary retelling of the beloved classic Jane Eyre promises to enchant a new generation of readers.

Jane Eyre is one of my favorites, so I've been tempted to buy this one, but am afraid it might "ruin" my JE for me.

I received Jane a week or two ago and it's very high on my tbr pile. Looking forward to reading your review.

This one sounds interesting! I just read your review for Jellicoe Road. Like you, it's one of my favorite books ever. I'm a new follower. Looks like we read a lot of the same books.
