Sure she has a crush on Jeff.  However, I must say that I do not know exactly at what point she starts to feel that way.  I do not think that she starts to like him as soon as they meet.  She acts too aloof for that.

My guess is that she starts to like him when he proves to her that he is really thoughtful and humane.  By that, I mean that I think she starts to like him when he goes out of his way (and even endangers himself) to get her brother's body back to their family after her brother gets executed.
