I have a confession to make: I¿ve never read Jane Eyre. Howeve
I have a confession to make: I’ve never read Jane Eyre. However, after enjoying The Death of a Dowager, I want to read the classic Charlotte Bronte novel and author Joanna Campbell Slan has accomplished her goal of The Jane Eyre Chronicles series – to introduce more readers to the delightful world of Jane Eyre.
I read The Death of a Dowager (book 2 in the series) without benefit of first reading The Death of a Schoolgirl (book 1) and had little difficulty in acclimating myself. At first, the number of characters was a bit overwhelming, but the primary and secondary characters were quickly sorted out.
I usually prefer novels with contemporary settings, but from the first chapter, I connected with Jane, Edward, Lucy and their world. Being relatively new to the ‘cozy mystery’ genre, I’ve searched for a series with an interesting plot beyond the facts surrounding the obligatory murder. The Jane Eyre Chronicles fits the bill, immersing readers in the life and times of 1800’s England.
I highly recommend The Death of a Dowager and plan to read The Death of a Schoolgirl while waiting for the third book in this interesting series.
The above opinions are my own; thanks to the author for providing a complimentary copy of the novel.
