Jar of Hearts by Jennifer Hillier

I read Jar of Hearts with four of my Traveling Friends and we all frantically raced through this one.   I quietly snuck away with my favorite beverage and locked myself in my room to finish this one.

Norma read this one a while back before it was released with our Traveling Sisters and I have included her review here in this post.

Jar of Hearts is a chilling, intense and compelling story with a horrific and violent crime. The descriptions are disturbing at times and are not for the fainthearted. For us twisted readers who like the darker side of the coulee we couldn’t stop reading.

Jar of Hearts is skillfully paced and well plotted with flashbacks to a violent crime that our main character Geo was involved in and with a crime in the present that seems connected.  The tension rises as the story progresses and the brilliant secrets are revealed at just the right time.  And that ending just so perfectly revealed leaving us feeling so happy with this story.  We highly recommend.

Thank you to my son for purchasing this book for me for my birthday!!

Gripping & Unputdownable Stars to JAR OF HEARTS!

JAR OF HEARTS by JENNIFER HILLIER is an intense, chilling, dark and twisted psychological thriller novel that grabbed my attention very quickly and had me totally invested throughout this whole story.

JENNIFER HILLIER delivers a unique, well-written and very descriptive read here with characters that were not all that likeable but they were definitely compelling to read about though. I found the storyline and some scenes quite disturbing and unsettling but nonetheless, it was a thrilling, entertaining and exciting book for me to read.

I thought that the reveals were perfectly timed and the way that the story developed and was presented to us was quite the impressive storytelling and very appealing to this reader. I think that is one of the reasons why I enjoyed this story so much!

This had me at the edge of my seat the entire time. I wasn’t there because there were frivolous twists or red-herrings thrown in and I was honestly surprised by how engrossed I was despite it missing things that are fairly traditional for these types of novels. The development into the story and it’s writing is was got me. I didn’t want to know the outcome, I needed to and I didn’t want to miss a single detail along the way. For Christina’s full review

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. For Kim’s full review
