3.0 out of 5 stars Reader, there are other thrillers.
By Tanya on January 6, 2021
Convaluted! This thriller drew me in for its Jane Eyre inspiration; what a clever basis for a thriller to draw on one of my favorite literary novels. However, Ms. Hawkins, while brilliant at her crafting Bronte's characters here and there, failed to deliver a solid thriller, IMO.

Jane is 23. She works part time at a coffee shop and part time as a dog walker in a lush, suburbian neighborhood. She's got baggage.

Eddie Rochester is a widow. His wife, Bea, aka Bertha, is dead. As is her best friend, in a not so distant boating accident.

Jane and Eddie come together; each for a purpose. The reader is dragged along their toxic journey as well as mired into the lives of their neighbors/relationships.

This thriller was a disappointment. Hawkins had a great idea going with the JANE EYRE foundation but I felt it fell flat and the ending ... seriously? A bigger climax could've saved this book a bit or given it at least 1/2 more star.
