Mrs. Rochester's Ghost
Mrs. Rochester's Ghost | Lindsay Marcott
14 posts | 14 read | 13 to read
In a modern and twisty retelling of Jane Eyre, a young woman must question everything she thinks she knows about love, loyalty, and murder. Jane has lost everything: job, mother, relationship, even her home. A friend calls to offer an unusual deal--a cottage above the crashing surf of Big Sur on the estate of his employer, Evan Rochester. In return, Jane will tutor his teenage daughter. She accepts. But nothing is quite as it seems at the Rochester estate. Though he's been accused of murdering his glamorous and troubled wife, Evan Rochester insists she drowned herself. Jane is skeptical, but she still finds herself falling for the brilliant and secretive entrepreneur and growing close to his daughter. And yet her deepening feelings for Evan can't disguise dark suspicions aroused when a ghostly presence repeatedly appears in the night's mist and fog. Jane embarks on an intense search for answers and uncovers evidence that soon puts Evan's innocence into question. She's determined to discover what really happened that fateful night, but what will the truth cost her?

This book did a good job of modernizing a classic story.

This was a fun, modern retelling of Jane Eyre with some twists. A good way to escape for a few hours which I‘ve needed recently!

Well if you liked Jane Eyre you‘ll probably enjoy this one. It‘s basically a modern retelling of the classic. Some compare it to fan fiction and in a way they aren‘t wrong. Still a great escape for a few hours. And I may go and revisit the original.

Also reviewed this week for a blog tour, I enjoyed this dark & modern Jane Eyre retelling set in Big Sur. I love a good adaptation--preferably when the author doesn't just pick up the novel and put it in a different time or setting & instead reaches out to give another angle to explore. If you like retellings of classics or a just good twisty thriller you should enjoy it. It kept me turning the pages. My bookish dish pairing is a Shrimp Cobb ⬇️

DebinHawaii …Salad purchased from a local brew pub but I included a recipe for a favorite blog cheese dressing on my post with the review. You can find it here: http://kahakaikitchen.blogspot.com/2021/08/the-book-tour-stops-here-review-of-mr... 5mo
Bookzombie This also looks delicious! 🤤 5mo

Yes, it‘s past 2 PM here & I‘m just eating lunch at my desk. Tuesday feels like Monday.😬1.5 days of orientation yesterday & today, up late making donut-fried apples for a book event (posting later), couldn‘t sleep & I did the reading & started my haikus but my #chapteraday summary for the #PemberLittens will be late today.😔

But lunch is good😋(poke & furikake salmon bowl) enjoyed while trying to finish this book up for a book tour on Thursday.

After running Saturday errands I grabbed an early lunch at a new sandwich place in my ‘hood. Tried their shrimp salad sandwich with a plantation iced tea, enjoyed on the patio overlooking the Marina. It was ‘ono. 😋

While lunching, I read a couple of chapters of one of my current reads for a book tour next week. I‘m really enjoying this Jane Eyre retelling so far.🤗

umbrellagirl I got that one as my Amazon prime choice this month. I liked it. 5mo
DebinHawaii @umbrellagirl Me too—I forgot I was getting a review copy! 🤣 I am really liking it so far though! 5mo

#ConflictedWorlds #PersonVsGhost

About to start this modern Jane Eyre retelling for a book tour review later this month. I think that seeing the #ghost or ghostly presence of the dead wife of the man you are falling for (& who is accused of killing her) would leave a person quite conflicted. 🤭👻😱

Eggs Would have me high-tailing it out of there 😂💔🙌🏻 6mo

When the Tuesday after a holiday feels like an extra Monday-ish Monday, it‘s nice to come home to some #bookmail. These two beauties arrived today: The Ocean in Winter is for a book tour review in a couple of weeks & the tagged book is for a book tour next month.
I am excited for both. 💙📚📪💙

I received a digital copy of this book from Netgally in exchange for an honest review. This books was a spooky and modern retelling set on the California Coastline and I could not put it down. Jane was wonderful, Mr Rochester is brooding and intimidating and the late Beatrice Rochester is compelling and sympathetic. #netgalley #MrsRochestersGhost
