“In every story, there’s a hero and a villain. Sometimes one person can be both.”
A murder, a coverup, and a twisted relationship are at the forefront of Jar of Hearts. This book is not only about what happened the night a young girl is murdered, but also about the after effects on the perpetrator of a crime.

Thank you to Minotaur for sending me a copy for my honest review. I have not read anything by Jennifer Hillier before but I am told her Creep/Freak series is legit. I’ll be one clicking on amazon very soon!
Oh my goodness!!! This book was everything! The story is told in 5 parts with alternating POVs between Geo, aka Georgina, and Kaiser, a detective and an old friend. The chapters are mostly in present day but we also have flashbacks of Geo and Kaiser’s high school years.
Right in the first cha ...more
Chills and Thrills Aplenty....
A serial killer is at the "heart" of this one. This is my first book by Jennifer Hillier and I really enjoyed how she unpeeled each part of the story layer by layer. I found myself being drawn in and totally absorbed in the murder mystery.
It is a very dark story with flawed characters and some disturbing and graphic parts I needed skim over (not going to lie)..... BUT I couldn't stop reading it either. Many secrets are revealed as the story progresses and each ...more
This book was all kinds of messed up, and I loved it. I'm not sure what it says about me that I like all kinds of gratuitous nasty in my thrillers. Could it be that I have become so desensitized to violence, gore, and all other forms of disturbing nature that I have to keep "one upping" my reads? Possibly. Deep down, I feel like the gritty, explicit thrillers make me ponder the unsettling aspects of life more. When a book talks about some of the darkest violence you can imagine, it makes me thin ...more
