Jar of Hearts.
by Jennifer Hillier
Published: June 12, 2018
This is the story of three best friends: one who was murdered, one who went to prison, and one who’s been searching for the truth all these years . . .
When she was sixteen years old, Angela Wong—one of the most popular girls in school—disappeared without a trace. Nobody ever suspected that her best friend, Georgina Shaw, now an executive and rising star at her Seattle pharmaceutical company, was involved in any way. Certainly not Kaiser Brody, who was close with both girls back in high school.
But fourteen years later, Angela Wong’s remains are discovered in the woods near Geo’s childhood home. And Kaiser—now a detective with Seattle PD—finally learns the truth: Angela was a victim of Calvin James. The same Calvin James who murdered at least three other women.
To the authorities, Calvin is a serial killer. But to Geo, he’s something else entirely. Back in high school, Calvin was Geo’s first love. Turbulent and often volatile, their relationship bordered on obsession from the moment they met right up until the night Angela was killed.
For fourteen years, Geo knew what happened to Angela and told no one. For fourteen years, she carried the secret of Angela’s death until Geo was arrested and sent to prison.
While everyone thinks they finally know the truth, there are dark secrets buried deep. And what happened that fateful night is more complex and more chilling than anyone really knows. Now the obsessive past catches up with the deadly present when new bodies begin to turn up, killed in the exact same manner as Angela Wong.
How far will someone go to bury her secrets and hide her grief? How long can you get away with a lie? How long can you live with it?
💻 MY THOUGHTS 💻
Jar of Hearts – Spell-bounding… Thriller… Gripping… Amazing
I said this before and I will say it again. I flipping loved this book. It gave me goosebumps. I also loved the title not just because it is also the title to one of favorite songs.
The book is divided into the four parts, with two POV’s Kaiser and Geo. I enjoyed how the storyline goes back and forth between past and present. This enables the reader to get a better background and sets the stage to all the things that is happening now.
Jennifer does a great job connecting both POV’s and is able to captivate the reader in such a way that you just want to devour more and more and more. I found myself being entwined in the story.
This physiological thriller left me on the edge with every turn of the page. You can never predict whats coming next. I love how Jennifer put all the puzzles pieces together to reveal a masterpiece.
I was a little baffled with Geo not really sure what to think of her. At first I felt sorry for her but then has more is revealed I became conflicted. There is a darkness to Geo.
Overall I loved this one. This was my first book I have read by Jennifer it was well done. Get ready to be spellbound by all the characters.
