From goodreads.com:First thoughts:
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.
The cover is so captivating! I found it beautiful and mysterious. I've always loved classic remakes of stories too. There was no way I could pass reading this one.
The characters in this book weren't very interesting. I found Jane to be a bit bland and Nico odd. I thought that the character Brenda was pretty good, for her purpose. The relationships between characters seemed forced and very unreal too.
April Lindner wanted to re-create Jane Eyre and I can't say if she did it right or not because I have never read the book. I found the plot to be extremely strange though. Things happened randomly and out of nowhere. Not in a good, SURPRISE way either.
I thought that I would love this book, but it ended up falling short for me. I've never read Jane Eyre and I don't plan to after reading this.
Overall this book wasn't good. I found it weird and uninteresting.
