Jane Steele: Reader, I murdered him.

We loves us some Lyndsay Faye here on Mutterings. Her Timothy Wilde trilogy has been one of my favorite worlds to explore in recent years, while the author herself has become one of my favorite people.

Lyndsay now has a new world, publishing next April: a deliciously wicked tale that starts as a riff on Jane Eyre and ends up redefining Victorian England as a whole. And since Lyndsay knows how much I love her books, she sent me two copies of the book, so I could share one.  Lyndsay describes Jane Steele as Jane Eyre meets Darkly Dreaming Dexter.

    I loved the Timothy Wilde series, and was sad to see it end. Great writing, and I’m excited and happy to hear Lyndsay Faye is bringing us some more fabulous stories!

  10. Rita Fernando says:

    I loved her take on Sherlock Holmes, so it would be interesting to see what she does with Jane Eyre. I loved her Timothy Wilde serie, so I’m sure she won’t disappoint!

  11. Diana Torres-Koss says:

    I have known Lindsay since she was a young(er) actress here in the Bay Area, and have been a HUGE fan of her books!!

  18. Stephen Hilton says:

    Just finished the Timothy WIlde trilogy and I’m in a Lindsay Faye induced mind vaccuum. I need Jane Steele to get me through the long, lonely Oklahoma winter. I’m not sure I’ll make it to April otherwise.

  19. Pick me! Pick me!

  20. Kiwi Carlisle says:

    I’m always up for a new take on Jane Eyre!

  21. Barbara Gibson says:

    I have thoroughly enjoyed the Timothy Wilde trilogy and only wish there were to be more than three. I am looking forward to the new series. Jane Eyre was the first “adult” novel I read, and I have reread it numerous times. It will be interesting to see what Jane will be like in Lindsay’s hands!

  22. Would love to read this! Thanks!

  23. Frances Kern says:

    If Laurie loves this author, that is good enough for me!

  24. Michael Dorenzo says:

    I can’t wait to read this great sounding recommendation.

  25. Thanks for calling my attention to another talented writer. Am looking forward to checking out Faye’s Wilde series.

  26. This sounds fantastic.

  27. This sounds delightful! I’d love a copy.

  28. I’ve really enjoyed the Timothy Wilde trilogy, excited to check out a new series!

  29. I have loved each of the Timothy Wilde novels, but especially the first. Each time I meet a new favorite character, I want to tell everyone I know!

  30. I’m always interested in good books

  31. Pat Hathaway says:

    Is it too late to enter the drawing? Book sound really interesting.

  32. Windy Sabin says:

    The only way to make the combination of Lyndsay Faye and Jane Eyre better would be to include Laurie. Victorian England? New twist on classic literature? Dexter? And my own maiden name (Steele)? You made my day. Can’t wait!!!!

  33. I loved all Faye’s other novels! I recommend her to all my library patrons who love historical mysteries. Very excited about her latest book. Can’t wait to read it!
