  • Far fetched.

    Rounded to 3 stars. This is such a bizarre and far fetched book. Well, perhaps not so bizarre. Those unlikable characters really deserved each other. The writing was a bit amateurish, but not so bad, as it got me hooked, so that means something. It is a fast read and somewhat entertaining, but I did find it extremely shallow. The fact that none of the characters are likeable did not bother me. I did not see anything that makes this book falls into gothic category. And to be compared to Jane Erie? Give me a break. Anyways... don’t mind me. Happy reading!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Twists and turns!

    If you are looking for a great read with lots of twists, turns and surprises, grab a copy of this page turner. I absolutely loved this book. Jane had a terrible family life and ended up in the foster system. She is now a young woman trying to support herself and rooming with someone she met at a half-way house. She walks dogs in a rich, snobbish subdivision where she happens to meet Eddie Rochester. Eddie's wife, Bea and her best friend, Blanche, disappear one night from a pontoon ride after they had both been drinking. Bea is a rich woman with her own company and both women are presumed dead. Eddie is handsome and Jane sees an opportunity here to get the lifestyle she has always yearned for. Thank you NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for the ARC of this book that kept me captivated from start to finish. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good thriller.

  • The Wife Upstairs

    The Wife Upstairs (Rachel Hawkins) is told to us by three of the main characters. Lots of twists, turns, and surprises in this thriller. I feel Ms Hawkins also had a good time writing this tale considering the names she gave some of her characters :) The Wife Upstairs is a page turner and I want to thank NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for giving me an early copy to review.

  • Twisty mystery that kept me in suspense

    This was a wild ride, and didn't go where I was expecting it to. I've never read Jane Eyre, so as far as a retelling, I can't say how it was. But as a mystery/thriller with romance vibes, it was good. The changing perspectives were interesting, and the narration on the audio was well done. This follows a trio of terrible people doing terrible things to each other, and I kept changing my mind on who I felt bad for or was worried about. There is Jane, not her real name, who is determined to wife herself to the rich widower in the community where she dog walks, whilst keeping her sordid past a secret, even as it tries to catch up with her. Eddie, the widower, who is keeping his wife captive, when everyone else thinks she and her best-friend died the same night. And Bea, the trapped wife, who through flashbacks we learn wasn’t so honest about her what her past was like, either. Definitely twisty, for fans of Verity, The Family Upstairs, and If We Were Villains this is a family drama with a love triangle, rich socialites, and some past perspectives to fill in the gaps as we go. You never quite know who is the victim and who is the villain, but you can't put it down until you find out.
