Jar of Hearts – Jennifer Hillier




Oh boy!! This story was all kinds of twisty and unpredictable. 

I loved this audiobook. I pretty much listened to it non-stop for the last couple days. Wherever I went, I listened to Jar of Hearts. I loved the premise and the superbly plotted story – it kept me wanting to know more. The urge to know what really happened was always present.

Through flashbacks the listener/reader gradually found out what actually transpired so many years ago. Chilling, nerve-racking, and heart wrenchingly emotional, the story of Jar of Hearts had my fullest attention. I was 100% entranced by the twisty plot that kept me on the edge of my chair literally and figuratively.

There were twists in this plot that I never saw coming. And the chilling depiction of a women’s prison was only one aspect that gave me goosebumps. Not knowing who did what kept me guessing throughout the book, and I had a hard time concentrating on anything else.

I’m not going into details, reading the blurb gives the reader a really good idea of what it’s all about. But the one thing I will say is, read it!!! If you love mysteries and thrillers, grab this book right now.

The hype is real!!!

I genuinely liked the main character Geo, her past as well as her present self. She was such a typical teenager, self conscious, easily manipulated, and utterly alone at times. What she had to go through was horrible and broke my heart. It was amazing that she ended up as such a strong and resilient woman.

Kaiser, the police detective responsible for the case was another character I loved and rooted for. Especially after finding out about his past friendship with Geo, and his unrequited crush. I truly hoped for a HEA for both of them. It shouldn’t be a surprise that I love at least a little bit of romance in my books, even in the most chilling and darkest books – it gives me hope. 😀

The story in itself was beautifully written. There was not once when I thought the back and forth was confusing or jarring. The plot wove perfectly and with ease between past and future and it made for an excellent reading experience. I must admit that the author hooked me with her excellent writing and storytelling. I won’t think twice about picking up any of her other books and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.

Jar of Hearts – Jennifer Hillier


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? lHow long can you get away with a lie? How long can you live with it?
