Publisher's Summary

Mackenzie Grant, daughter of a rich Wyoming cattle rancher, is an ugly duckling. She's never been in love and never had a boyfriend. Heck, she's never had a date! As a result, she finds comfort in her favorite world - the world of Jane Austen. After all, who wouldn't dream of being the independent Elizabeth Bennett or of being wooed by the aristocratic Mr. Darcy?

But when tragic news calls away their longtime friend and ranch hand, he's replaced by a handsome stranger. Mackenzie soon finds herself swooning over Tyler Anderson. There are just two small problems: he hates Jane Austen, and his ex-girlfriend is the very person responsible for making Mackenzie's school years miserable.

Will she find love and a fairytale ending, or is she doomed for her story to end in tragedy?

    "Love This Title"

    I have to admit, being a Jane Austen fan, the title of this book drew me in. This book is just under 4 hours long so I was pleasantly surprised that this clean YA listen had a good story that was cute, light, fun, with elements of faith.

    The main character, Mackenzie, is a Jane Austen enthusiast that has self esteem issues. She considers herself an ugly duckling because shes never had admirers or even a boyfriend. This is a story of overcoming insecurities and dealing with the pressures of life.

    I thought the narration was great. Each character was unique and spoken clearly. 😊

    I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys clean YA listens.

    "Love it"
    Would you listen to Jane Austen in Blue Jeans again? Why?

    I might listen to this book again. It was a great book that hit on some very real emotions for a lot of people.


    What other book might you compare Jane Austen in Blue Jeans to and why?

    I am not sure. I know it's like a couple i have listed to, but didn't like nearly as much as i liked this one.


    What does Kate van de Goor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I don't know, she did a good job though.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I about cried a few times just knowing how this girl felt when feeling like she wasn't attractive, although i am not as attractive as her in the book, but i know the feelings she was going through. I also about cried at the end up in the treehouse.

    "A Little Drama and Some Humor..."
    Any additional comments?


    The story starts off with McKenzie, the female lead, who has no love life,
    low self-esteem, and was taught to believe that Intelligence has a greater worth than Beauty.

    Her beliefs are challenged when she meets Tyler, the male lead who is the the ranch hand covering for McKenzie and her father while they wait for their own worker to return.

    McKenzie and Tyler develop a true friendship and she grows to love him more than a friend but then she has this idea that he's too good for her because she's ugly and he's gorgeous, which makes no sense considering her earlier views.

    Overall, The story is written well, it's a quick read, that has a little drama and some humor.


    Kate van de Goor did well with the narration.

    "Entertaining new adult romance story!"
    Any additional comments?

    Jane Austen in Blue Jeans is an entertaining clean romance by Emma Caufield. [What else do you expect from a book with "Jane Austen" in the title?] While some may classify this story as young adult, I think it is more of a "new adult" book because the main characters are in their mid-to-late 20's.

    The story centers around "Mac" who is the Porsche driving daughter of a rich Wyoming cattle rancher. She delayed attending college for several years when her mother died and she's been helping out her father around the ranch ever since then. She's sensible, independent, and dateless - much like the characters in the Jane Austen novels she admires so much. About the only thing Mac is not sensible about is her looks, which ultimately threatens her chance of finding true happiness. Case in point, temporary ranch manager Tyler comes to live on the ranch when the current estate manager leaves to care for an ailing brother. Mac and Tyler have an instant connection with each another and they can talk openly about just about anything. But, Mac's constant insecurities sabatogue their friendship from developing into anything more meaningful. She believes that she doesn't deserve Tyler because he is "so much better" than she. In all honesty, this poor self image got tedious because it was so contrary to the person Mac really was - and not like Lizzy Bennett at all. Plus, she was pretty - both inside and outside!

    I listened to the Audible version of this story narrated by Kate van de Goor who did a great job. Her narration flows naturally and she is easy to listen to. She also has differing voices for all characters, male and female. I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest unbiased review.

    "Confused?"

    Confused?

    A review of the Audiobook version.

    I have mixed feelings about this book and, I'm strangely hesitant to place this book in my favourites shelf. Whilst it was a beautiful story told- if you don't read too much into the pages, it presented heavily confused messages.

    The only thing I'd say I don't have mixed feelings about is the narration produced by Kate van de Goor. She had a strong voice and it worked with the story. Speaking of the story, it was about a young intelligent woman, McKenzie, who has no love life, and has never had a love life. She was raised believing intelligence is of a greater worth to beauty. A message I would personally instil in my own children. Well for me, maybe not so much 'intelligence' but, definitely goood character.

    But this message comes with ramifications, she also grows up with very low self-esteem and the belief that she is not beautiful. Not that she regards beauty as that important, she'd much rather be intelligent. I guess I should also mention that she's a Jane Austen fan. But anyway, her opinion on beauty is tested when she meets Tyler, the ranch hand covering for McKenzie and her father whilst they wait for their own worker to return.

    McKenzie and Tyler develop an easy friendship, she grows to love him more than a friend. But she has this idea that he's too perfect, and 'out of her league'. In other words, not for her. Because she's ugly and he's gorgeous. So up to this point I liked the story. I guess I had this idea that Tyler liked her, I wasn't wrong, but I thought Tyler liked her despite her ugliness. But it just so happens that McKenzie actually wasn't ugly at all, she just believed it. And this was realised after she asked her father and her friend. At this point my reaction was"why couldn't she actually be ugly?" Why couldn't it be a Beauty and the (forever, no transformation) Beast variation? Is it so bad that she was ugly?

    Throughout the story there was another message revealed: that beautiful people can be put on a high pedestal. That they will always be perfect. I've never agreed with this. It's always stupid, and for someone who claimed to not value beauty, it was unbelievable for her to fall into this trap. Tyler was intelligent, and charming. I understood that but it wasn't his charm that won his seat atop the pedestal, she had placed him there within moments of locking eyes with him.

    There were other reasons for why I didn't like this book too much. But I do think it is worth mentioning that it was written well, characters were developed, ending was reasonable, and there was good description of the setting. If you look on the surface, rather than delve deeply into the story as I am accustomed to doing, I'm sure you'll love this story. And it is for that reason I gave this book a three star rating.

    I received this book through Audiobook Boom.

    “This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.”

    A sweet clean romance, that is a quick listen. Wyoming raised Mackenzie has never seen herself as beautiful. Tyler a temporary ranch hand sees her beauty. Add in a former classmate of Mac's also ex of Tyler and the story evolves. I'd like to hear a sequel to this book.

    The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed.
