Editor reviews

Author Jane Gloriana Villanueva doesn’t actually exist, but as fans of the television smash hit Jane the Virgin can attest, she certainly has a story to tell. In this historical romance that title character Jane has been toiling away on for several seasons, young dreamer Josephine Galena Valencia is engaged to a heroic detective. But everything changes when she meets the dashing owner of the Regal Sol hotel where she works, kindling a saga of intertwined lives and unearthing hidden pasts. 

Fans of the show will delight in knowing that Jane’s 1902-set Snow Falling can now be experienced in real life; and even better, it’s performed by Alba herself, actress Ivonne Coll, who pairs brilliantly with narrator Anthony Mendez. An epic romance that is both therapeutic, bittersweet and a little bit raunchy, Snow Falling captures the same hope and heartbreak that has left the show’s viewers mesmerised. 

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!

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.

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.

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.
