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.

Any additional comments?

Cute

Cute, made it to the end. Didn’t love it. As a Jane Austin fan I did like the “name dropping” of the books and such, but it wasn’t a great story.

What? I missed something....

I felt like it kept me hanging. We never learned about Tyler’s life, what was with his family. We didn’t get closure to her issues with the neighbor girl. How did Mackenzie and Tyler end, what happened.... UGH!!!!
This story left me feeling like someone stole the last three chapters of the book and grew them in the trash then screamed THE END.....

Cute!

One of the cutest short and sweet stories I’ve read/listened to in awhile. While somewhat cliché, I found the heroine very relatable (probably due to the fact that I’m a self-conscious, Montana rancher’s daughter who is obsessed with Jane Austen lol) and therefore enjoyed the predictable story. I will say that this book is probably going to please fans on romantic westerns more that it will Jane Austen junkies, but fun and enjoyable for either crowd.

Delightful, romantic, enjoyable.

Quite simply i enjoyed this book. The story is a short, funny, clean romance that most women can relate to because we all have our insecurities. This is a story about that time in a young woman's life when she is fully grown but has yet to completely shed the mantle of teenage angst and experience. The characters are delight, interesting and complex. I even enjoyed the open-minded interpretation of Christianity that was alluded to in the story. It is interesting how such a short book can be steeped with every day realities but still provide a heavy dose of feel good factor. Kate van de Goor presents a wonderful narration, bringing to life the book in a well matched way.

Please note that this book mentions Jane Austin characters and books but is not actually a modern interpretation of her books (Just in case you were wondering).
