Summary

Narrated by Ivonne Coll and Anthony Mendez from TV's Jane the Virgin!

It's been a lifetime (and three seasons) in the making, but Jane Gloriana Villanueva is finally ready to make her much-anticipated literary debut!

Jane the Virgin, the Golden Globe, AFI, and Peabody Award-winning dramedy, has followed Jane's telenovela-esque life - from her accidental artificial insemination and virgin birth to the infant kidnapping and murderous games of the villainous Sin Rostro to an enthralling who-will-she-choose love triangle. With these tumultuous events as inspiration, Jane's breathtaking first novel adapts her story for a truly epic romance that captures the hope and the heartbreak that have made the television drama so beloved.

Snow Falling is a sweeping historical romance set in 1902 Miami - a time of railroad tycoons, hotel booms, and exciting expansion for the Magic City. Working at the lavish Regal Sol hotel and newly engaged to Pinkerton Detective Martin Cadden, Josephine Galena Valencia has big dreams for her future. Then, a figure from her past reemerges to change her life forever: the hotel's dapper owner, railroad tycoon Rake Solvino.

The captivating robber baron sets her heart aflame once more, leading to a champagne-fueled night together. But when their indiscretion results in an unexpected complication, Josephine struggles to decide whether her heart truly belongs with heroic Martin or dashing Rake.

Meanwhile, in an effort to capture an elusive crime lord terrorizing the city, Detective Cadden scours the back alleys of the Magic City, tracking the nefarious villain to the Regal Sol and discovering a surprising connection to the Solvino family.

However, just when it looks like Josephine's true heart's desire is clear, danger strikes. Will her dreams for the future dissolve like so much falling snow, or might Josephine finally get the happy ever after she's been dreaming of for so long?

Perfect for Jane the Virgin fans!

I LOVED this book!
After being a fan of Jane the virgin from the first episode, this book was amazing. I could picture every single scene as though it was playing in an episode. Amazing!

A fun twist on a Jane the Virgin

Ivonne's reading is fantastic. This book was written for fans of the show. Keeping that in mind I would not recommend it as a great read, but it was fun.

Great book however...the narration..

I loved the story the only thing is i thing that it could be better if the narration was from a younger voice it felt as if my abuela was reading it for me which is not necessarily bad but as it is a romance novel it felt out of place. But i liked the side narration from anthony mendez.

Snow Falling: As good as the show?

Honestly this book took my mind out of the reality and brought me into Jane aka Josephine's life. The twists and turns although it was predictable since it was based off of Jane The Virgin. That's what the book is supposed to be though since it is based off the novel Jane wrote in the Tv show. The only part is disliked was how Jane became pregnant in the show she is artificially inseminated which holds true to the name Jane The Virgin. If you like romance novels this book should definitely be added to your list.

A wonderful companion ...

For lovers of Jane the Virgin, I was thrilled to learn of the printing of Janes first novel. It was a delightful book. Loved the actors who read the story and gave it life.
I laughed, I cried and smiled many times through work.
Thank you, Jane, for sharing your work. Hope to read more in the years ahead.

just as expected

Narrations were well done, however I really recommend reading before watching Jane the Virgin so it leaves you a little more unknowing of what will happen.

Jane the Virgin- modified

There are obviously differences between the TV show and the book that “Jane wrote”. It is a sweet story, not as complicated as the TV show, and I felt like most of the characters were better versions of themselves… More understanding, less dramatic… I think that’s just how it goes in the difference between TV show and book.

Fun companion book!

If you love Jane the Virgin then you will enjoy this. There isn’t anything new per say that you didn’t see already in the series, but it helps prolong the sadness of JTV ending. Especially for those of us who felt like Michael got a horrible ending off in the finale. I will agree with other reviewers though that the narration should have been by someone younger. I appreciate that they tapped Alba for the role as a nod to JTV, but she is the wrong age/tone for the story as a whole

I see why Rogelio sponsored this book

I love Jane the Virgin. I'm #TeamMichael. My friends and I had a finale watch party with JTV themed food and T-shirts. I also know that this is book is supposed to be for fun, but it's some of the worst writing I've listened to in a long time. Ivonne Coll is wonderful as Alba on JTV, and she didn't abandon that tone for this audio book which I didn't feel was appropriate for this book. I was also hoping we'd get extra tidbits (since it's basically retelling the first 3 seasons) about Jane and Michael (Josephine and Martin), but it was all superficial. On a positive note, they added in LLN (Anthony Mendez) who doesn't appear in the printed copy. Overall, I was underwhelmed

good but

um this book is good except for the people who are narrating this book not to be mean or anything with someone who doesn't sound like my grandmother should be narrating this book to me. it just feels a little bit weird hearing some of those words
