NewsDio recommends Daphne Du Maurier's Rebecca (well, not exactly, you'll see) for 'rainy autumn evenings' if you love Jane Eyre.

Love Charlotte Brontë’s, Jane Eyre? Then definitely don’t pass it by! This story is so similar to the famous classic novel that many have accused the writer of plagiarism, although the plot here is even more mysterious, so much so that the book could fall into the “thriller” category.
Our protagonist, penniless as a church mouse, meets and marries a wealthy aristocrat. And if that’s where most books end, our story just begins! Because the main character keeps feeling the looming shadow of his ex-wife Rebecca, even though she’s long gone. It is depressing and frightening, and it is up to her to solve the mystery of this overbearing and missing woman. (Danish)
Similarly, if you like the works of Charlotte Brontë, Tribune Occitanie (France) recommends the film The Remains of the Day. John C Adams Reviews and  El Salto (Spain) have articles on Jean Rhys and Wide Sargasso Sea.
