Publisher's Summary

Hope: Bride of New Jersey is third in the unprecedented 50-book American Mail-Order Brides series.

In this faithful Jane Eyre retelling, Hope Middleton was all but thrown away by the family that was supposed to care for her. Now on her own, she loses her job when the factory where she worked burned to the ground. With no other alternatives, she answers an advertisement for a mail-order bride and travels to Newark, New Jersey, expecting a simple life in a quiet community. Instead, she is thrown into the middle of the dark mystery that surrounds her enigmatic fiancé, with only the chance of falling in love as her saving grace. 

This retelling brings the drama of a Bronte classic together with the romance of a mail-order bride novella.

What a twist!

I have listened to a lot of mail order bride books, and i have to say this is one of the best! I know, you think it's because it's a Bride of New Jersey, but even me being a Jersey girl did not see the twist in this story coming! Hope answers the letter for a mail order bride and travels to NJ. Here she meets her elusive fiance, Roscoe and his charge, Addie. Addie is such a sweet girl, and Hope takes to her right away. Not so much to Roscoe. As time goes on, they find their rhythm and fall in love. But is love enough? The surprises in this story caught my attention, and honestly, I am not sure what I would have done in Hope's shoes. But I am not going to give anything away here! Give this a listen! If you enjoy historical romances, Amelia C Adams will enchant you. Meghan Kelly brings this one to life like no other I have heard her narrate. I think the emotion and surprises keep the tension high and she rises to the occasion in each voice she performs. I especially love when she does kids, and her voice for Addie is perfection. Another wonderful performance.

Emotional

What a great story! Hope had no hope, until she agreed to become a mail order bride. When she got there to marry him, she got the surprise of her life. Meghan Kelly brought it to life with her narration! A fantastic narrator! What a tangled web we weave, when we first practice to deceive. I loved this adventure!

New Jersey Bride

My review might be different if I hadn't JUST listened to Jane Eyre 3 months ago. I missed that this was a variation of Jane Eyre in the description when I started listening and started to notice similarities early on. Hope has limited options when the mill she worked at closed and so she accepts a mail order bride position. Everything seems to be going on great until it comes out that her intended is not free to wed after all. The story in itself is good, but I wonder why the author recycled a classic plot for this series. Narration by Meghan Kelly was excellent for pacing and character voices and was very easy to listen to. I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Fantastic

I listened to this one on audio. The narrator Meghan Kelly is amazing. She brought the story to life! I loved this book. I loved the mystery/suspense part of this book. It took some twists and turns I didn't see coming. I loved it. It ended perfectly but I wanted more. Well written. The characters were great. They were thought out and all have great personalities that I could relate to. Read or listen to this book. It was great!

A Classic!

What romantic female does not like the brooding, secretive hero? Well as long as the secrets come out ok in the end! This is a more modern retelling of Jane Eyre but it stood on it's on with the words of Amelia C Adams and the vocals of Meghan Kelly it does not get much better! Hope has lost her job at the factory along with many of her friends and they are at loose ends. She does not want to go back to her aunt's house, so answers an ad for a mail order bride. But wow, does she get so much more! The home is really an Estate with a capital E and he betrothed Roscoe, is an enigmatic. It seems he wanted more a governess to his ward than a wife. But things change between them and in the end, the secrets come out! Needless to say it is brilliant and I could listen to Ameilia's stories all day told by Megan!!

Great Series, Great Book

I'm really enjoying this series and this book is the best so far. Beautifully written it's impossible not to care about Addie and want everything to work out for her. There are some great surprises in this story that make it a lot of fun to listen to. Meghan does an excellent job with the narration, particularly the character voices. She is one of my favorite narrators and this book shows why. I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Fun story

This was a fun story to listen to. Twists and turns kept you guessing what was going to happen next. Great narration as well.
