This was an interesting twist on the Jane Eyre storyline! I really liked that this was a contemporary timeline, and I enjoyed the addition of the rich neighborhood, not a secluded mansion.
Jane is the dog-walker for a rich neighborhood. This area is full of women with nothing better to do than sit around and gossip about everyone else. When Jane bumps into Eddie, the two hit it off, and Jane becomes a kept woman, trying to fit in with these suburban housewives. As the mysterious accident of Eddie’s previous wife and friend turns into a murder, Jane begins to suspect that she is in more danger than she can handle.
I liked Jane’s personality in this one. She’s sneaky and has a ton of secrets she’s trying to balance. I loved the way she handles situations, and I found her to be conniving and quite observant. Everything about her worked really well in this story!
The plot was a solid thriller storyline. It was interesting, and had some twists and turns that kept me intrigued. I found it to be somewhat predictable, but I still enjoyed it!
I listened to the audio version of this book, and I thought it was really well-done. There are multiple narrators, which created a great story! The narrator for Jane did an excellent job. She had a great cadence and her inflection and emotion while reading was perfect.
Overall, I really enjoyed this one. It was a fun twist on a classic story, and I didn’t want to put it down!
