My Plain Jane By Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows & Brodi Ashton

If there was something strange in your neighborhood, you could, um, write the Society a letter, and they would promptly send an agent to take care of it.

Ok so here is the deal, I absolutely loved My Lady Jane it was a five star read for me so I was beyond excited for this one as it is a retelling of Jane Eyre which is one of my favorite classics and take that, add in ghosts and the paranormal, I was all in! So I had very extremely high hopes for it. And maybe it was due to my love of My Lady Jane and Jane Eyre and that my expectations were too high, but it just fell short for me. However w I did still enjoy the story and it was entertaining it just didn’t live up to the humor that was My Lady Jane and the source material behind the story. I was hoping for a story centered around Jane when I actually felt Charlotte Brontë was the star in this story, and my favorite character ended up being a ghost named Helen!

“Do not eat anything she whips up in a cauldron,” Helen whispered.

Jane of course is a penniless orphan just as we all know her to be but she is special in the sense that she can see and speak to ghosts. She becomes the governess at Thornfield Hall. There, she meets the mysterious and brooding Mr. Rochester. And I bet you can imagine that she falls in love with him despite the fact he is old enough to be her father and has some major baggage, which she may or may not end up marrying…

Charlotte Brontë a dear friend of Jane and you guessed it an aspiring author who never goes anywhere without her notebook jotting down anything and everything collecting tidbits for her future novels. Charlotte finds herself alongside the top paranormal investigator Alexander Blackwood and on a journey in trying to sway her good friend Jane in becoming an agent for the Society for the  Relocation of Wayward, solving some mysteries and hunting down some ghosts along the way.
