JAR OF HEARTS BY JENNIFER HILLIER
Jar of Hearts by Jennifer Hillier is a mystery/thriller about a group of three friends whose lives all took a different turn one fateful night when they were teenagers. At the age of 16, Angela disappeared without a trace only to be found years later buried in a shallow grave. Georgina, a powerful executive, is accused of participanting in and covering up Angela’s grisly murder with her then high school boyfriend Calvin James, now infamously known as the Sweetbay Strangler. Finally, Kaiser, still secretly in love with Geo, became a police detective who can’t seem to let Angela’s murder go and is obsessed with reapprehending the Sweetbay serial murderer who escaped.
This book was unputdownable! Riveting, shocking, and full of twists and turns that will leave you wishing for more. Well written with believable characters, told from Geo and Kai’s differing perspectives interspersed with flashes from the past teasing out the circumstances leading up to Angela’s murder. I highly recommend this novel to lovers of the thriller genre. I rate this novel 5 out of 5 stars.
