I wanted to give a higher rating to this audiobook but I couldn't find anything redeeming about it. I know how harsh that sounds. But a Goodreads two stars rating is "It was ok" and this was not. It was not ok. By the time I got to 75% I was ready to launch my phone (reminder: audiobook) across the room and stomp on my headphones.

So what issues did I have with the book? Well, I will do my best to avoid any spoilers but some might get spoiler-adjacent.

Let's start with the narrators. There were three of them. One for each of the female POV characters and one for the male. The male narrator I'd heard before and enjoyed just fine. Eddie has a tiny portion of the book from his POV which was narrated in a pretty much emotionless, excruciatingly slow cadence. The narrator for Bea was meh. The narrator for Jane had that constant "I'm irritated with everything and breathe-too-heavily-and-too-often" thing happening that ended up being super annoying and distracting.

Now lets talk about the story. This is where it might be more information than you want so if you're still interested in maybe reading with your eyeballs to avoid the narration issues, be warned.

I'm usually fine with an unreliable narrator but this book has three of them. Yes, all three POV characters. Which might still be ok except so much of the book had my BS meter screaming off the charts. So many absolutely unbelievable twists that I eventually got to the point where I only wanted it to end.

I know I can be rough on books that push my ability to suspend disbelief too far but the combination of the narration, not being able to trust a single person telling a part of the story, and the total unbelievableness (yes, I'm using a pretend word because I need it) of most everything, I have to go with the one-star review.

I received the audiobook from the publisher and NetGalley. ( )

A twisy tale that kept me guessing. Recommended.

I don’t quite know how I feel about this. I like Jane Eyre, I like adaptations, and I’m always up for a thriller. I guess it felt a little too predictable? No, actually, I didn’t mind that part so much. I don’t mind knowing what’s happening in a mystery so long as it’s fun. My stumbling block was that the Jane in this book was nothing like Jane Eyre. And I get it, it’s a contemporary adaptation, she’s going her own way but honestly you can change basically everything in an adaptation and I’ll still enjoy it if there’s some core element that’s the same and for a book that’s as character-driven as Jane Eyre, I need an adaptation to preserve her fierce, contradictory spirit if I’m going to be on-board. And this Jane didn’t have it. I might be biased because the first-person narration in this book—like the first-person narration in a lot of modern books—didn’t sound particularly distinct to me. Jane here could have been swapped for any of the characters in other thrillers I’ve read recently and she would have sounded the same. TL;DR, Jane Eyre has a distinct voice and this book failed to capture that while not giving me a ton that was new in return. It was fun though. If you’re not a pedant, you’d probably like it more than I did. ( )

This "who-dune-it" was an up-and-down thrill ride to the very end—smart, sassy, and surprising. When Jane Bell, aka Helen Burns, shows up in the exclusive Thornfield Estates, she's running from a sorted past and hoping for a better future. She thinks life would be perfect if she could only be just like the bejeweled, pampered women that hire her to walk their dogs. Then she falls for Eddie. What she doesn't know is Eddie is living the kind of nightmare that could get her killed. I guess this is supposed to be a remake of Jane Eyre, but I enjoyed it as a modern thriller that kept me enthralled to the very end. ( )
