Jar of Hearts by Jennifer Hillier




Wow! Just wow! I have had this book on my TBR pile for quite some time. I was so sure I would love it. You always worry that the book will not live up to your expectations when you put it that high on a pedestal. Not to worry, this one was what I had anticipated and it even exceeded how good I thought it would be.

Georgina Shaw has two best friends in high school, Angela Wong and Kaiser Brody. They do everything together until Georgina (Geo) acquires a new boyfriend. A much older bad boy named Calvin James.

Flash forward 14 years and Georgina is being charged, along with Calvin with the murder of Angela Wong. What happened that night that Angela went missing? How did things go so wrong? Calvin slips Geo a note during her trial that says you're welcome. What? Is Calvin protecting Geo from something? Is there more to this story than meets the eye?  Georgina does her prison time and gets released with another chance at life. While Calvin James in on the run. Several murders happen around the time of Geo's release from prison. Is Calvin sending her a message? Or is it a copycat murderer?




I flew through this book, reading it was some Traveling Friends, which made it even more enjoyable! This book was quite the page turner for me. I had heard the hype and I am here to say, yes it is all that a bag of chips! I was absolutely shocked at the ending. My mind did not even go there. Hillier spun such a wicked, twisted story and I loved it. This woman knows how to write a book!  This is a must read in my opinion. I have had a lot of favorites reads this year but this is either #1 or #2 on my list. It is just that darn good.

Fantastic, wicked, creepy 5 stars from me!
