Amazing retelling of Jane Eyre!

I loved this book! It was a really cute retelling of the classic novel "Jane Eyre"! The only things I would note is that the book does contain a couple of uses of h--l, d--n, and b-----d. Also, this book has some violence, but nothing very gory. There are also a couple of kisses, too.

Is It Any Good?

Fans of the literary masterpiece it's based on will get a kick out of this retelling with its humor and supernatural theme. My Plain Jane starts out a bit slow and feels long at times, but the wit and humor carry the story. The authors' fondness for this Gothic time period shines through, and fans of paranormal romances will probably love it.
