Georgina, known as Geo, is a 30-year-old rising executive when her world comes crashing down. Her high school boyfriend has been identified and arrested for a series of serial murders, including Angela, Geo'sbest friend in high school. Angela disappeared without a trace at 16 and her body has just been found. Now Geo is under arrest for helping her then-boyfriend cover it up. And it's one of her other close friends from high school, Kaiser Brody, who arrests her. While Geo is sent to prison for her part, Calvin escapes from custody and is on the run. Geo, now thirty-five, is about to be released from prison to try and start over. But someone has started killing people and dumping their bodies in her old neighborhood, with some of the markers of the missing Sweetbay Stranglerher old boyfriend Calvin. Is these killings some kind of message from Calvin? Are they some of revenge? Is she herself now in danger? Everything turns on what really happened that tragic night back when Geo and Angela were high schoolers. Everyone thinks they know the truth, but there are dark secrets buried deep within other secrets, and it may be too late for anyone to survive the truth.

I did the audiobook version, and thought it was very good. I especially liked way the book ended, because I didn‘t see it coming. The story was a bit graphic and twisted, which I like. If you like books a little serial killers, you‘ll probably like this one.

Two books down this weekend for #jubilantjuly readathon. I really enjoyed both. Jar of Hearts was creepy and dark with lots of plot twists, I couldn‘t put it down. Long Way Down is beautifully written in verse, I can‘t stop thinking about it. Also unputdownable, read it in one sitting. @Andrew65

I thought that the writing in this book was really good. It kept my interest and had some interesting twists. I personally felt like the story was a bit familiar, like I‘ve read books that came together in a similar way and I figured out the ending pretty quickly. I did like the way that the story was told from different perspectives and places. Definitely a chilling story that came together well in the end.

This is my third Jennifer Hillier book & I cannot get enough. Her thrillers are dark, twisty, & unputdownable. Geo is a corporate executive living the life most people only dream of when her past comes back to haunt her. The disappearance of her best friend Angela 14 years earlier threatens to upend her world again. When new bodies begin to turn up, Geo must decide if she will keep her secrets buried in the past. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This book was pretty good, I definitely enjoyed it. I know a lot of people say this book was pretty sick, but if you like reading stephan king, this is right up your alley. I kinda figured who it was throughout the book and it turned out to be who I thought it was. But I still enjoyed it and think it's worth the read. 4/5

Addictive, dark, and twisted… I loved this book! This was one of the best thrillers I‘ve read in quite some time. I thought it was well written and impossible to put down, but I must warn that it might be too disturbing and graphic for some readers.
CW: multiple rapes, graphic violence

Despite some of its flaws this was very entertaining and fast-paced thriller. It wasn‘t always the most enjoyable listen because the storyline was so dark and it was hard to root for anyone but the narrator (January LaVoy) did an excellent job.

3.5 stars

First Hillier and I have to say, she is twisted! These people are f*cked up! I've been ploughing through audios and each keeps getting more twisted than the last. A part of this one had me gagging a little. TW: besides the obvious murders & graphic post mortem descriptions, rape...multiple.
Well done, I was surprised with the one twist but then it made the final reveal obvious,though I think it's intended for the reader to know that.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I enjoyed this thriller from beginning to end. A fourteen year old murder changes the life of Geo and those around her. Several twists and turns in this book.

(Audiobook)
⭐⭐⭐⭐
This one kept my interest, and kept me guessing for a lot longer than most books of this genre do at this point. The storyline is an original one, and the storytelling was good. The only thing that sort of took me out of it was that the actual 'jar of hearts' felt pretty gimmicky.

Fresh storyline in a familiar trope (woman returns after a long-ago murder). The writer creates a flawed, yet likable, main character and draws on the emotions up until the very end.

This book was a quick read and extremely dark. I loved every minute of it and could not put it down. It was thrilling and had a plot twist at the end, that I did not predict. I‘d highly recommend

Jar of Hearts was dark and disturbing. I liked it.
I plan on reading more of her work.
Maya Angelou is a wonderful poet. She really puts feeling in her work. I highly recommend her poetry. Beautiful.
Both books are enjoyable

Very dark and twisty! I plan on catching up on some of Hillier's previous books, because dark and twisty is pretty much how I like my thrillers.

4.5 STARS - Gripping, gritty and so hard to put down. This book consumed me this past weekend. It has a nice balance of character-focus and compelling suspense read. I cannot wait to read her upcoming Little Secrets (April 2020).

From the minute I started this book I loved it. Great characters, great mystery and plot and well written. I loved the character development and the sinister plot. It's right up my street. However, I can't help but feel like the last chunk of the book was rushed. I don't think it was embedded enough to warrant the speed it finished. The killer was revealed a bit too quickly and not built into the story enough. Loved it but slightly disappointed...

First book of 2020! Holy cheese grits, this book was killer (no pun intended). Didn‘t see the twists at all and the ending was incredible.
High stars read for me 👍

CBee @vkois88 you should!! It‘s not a long read at all and is super twisty!!! I understand about the energy thing, totally 😂 3y
vkois88 I may be lazy and see if it‘s on Scrib‘d... I have what they think is pneumonia and I‘m pretty much sticking to one chair lol... my toddler is wearing me out for sure 3y
