If you want a mystery that keeps you entertained and guessing what's going to happen next, then you must read this book. Full of twists, gossiping suburban women, secrets galore, a murder or two makes this my kind of book.
As for the ending; well if you want to be looking over your shoulder for the rest of your life, you may say she got what she deserved.
This book is a twist on the Gothic classic, Jane Eyre.
In this book, Jane is a dog-walker in Thornfield Estates in Birmingham Alabama. She meets Eddie Rochester. Eddie is recently widowed. His wife, Bea, drowned in a boating accident with her best friend, Blanche. Jane and Eddie fall for each other, but Bea haunts Jane. How can Jane measure up to Bea? Can she win Eddie's heart? Why won't Bea just stay buried?
The story is full of suspense, wit and plot twists. It is a love triangle and everyone has secrets. Listening to the audio made the story more of an enjoyable experience. The ending was a complete surprise that I did not see coming. I loved Rachel's writing style and will seek out her next novel. I would recommend this novel for those who love domestic thrillers. Thanks to NetGalley and Macmillian audio for a free copy for an honest review.
