Waiting On Wednesday #65 – Jar Of Hearts by Jennifer Hillier

Wednesday, March 21, 2018
is a weekly event that was originally hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place that spotlights upcoming releases that we´re eagerly anticipating with pure joy.

There are a lot of new books coming out each year and some of them catch my attention and will get a spotlight in my Waiting on Wednesday post. While some of them will finally end up here at my place, others won´t.

I am joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can´t-Wait Wednesday.

I am not sure, if it was a Canadian author who brought this book to my attention on her Twitter feed or if I saw it elsewhere on social media. But the cover caught my attention and after reading its blurb I thought wowza, that sounds thrilling. The author is totally new to me so this could become a real adventure to read.

Jar Of Hearts
Author Jennifer Hillier
Publishing Date June 12, 2018
Publisher Minotaur Books 
Format Hardcover

When she was sixteen years old, Angela Wong – one of the most popular girls in school – disappeared without a trace. Nobody ever suspected that her best friend, Georgina Shaw, now an executive and rising star at her Seattle pharmaceutical company, was involved in any way. Certainly not Kaiser Brody, who was close with both girls back in high school.
But fourteen years later, Angela Wong´s remains are discovered in the woods near Geos childhood home. And Kaiser – now a detective with Seattle PD – finally learns the truth: Angela was a victim of Calvin James. The same Calvin James who murdered at least three other women.
To the Authorities, Calvin is a serial killer. But to Geo, he´s something else entirely. Back in high school, Calvin was Geo´s first love. Turbulent and often volatile, their relationship bordered on obsession from the moment they met right up until the night Angela was killed.
For fourteen years, Geo knew what happened to Angela and told no one. For fourteen years she carried the secret of Angela´s death until Geo was arrested and sent to prison. While everyone thinks they finally know the truth, there are dark secrets buried deep. And what happened that fateful night is more complex and more chilling than anyone really knows.
Now the obsessive past catches up with the deadly present when new bodies begin to turn up, killed in the exact same manner as Angela Wong. How far will someone go to bury her secrets and hide her grief? How long can you get away with a lie? How long can you live with it? 

Happy reading & waiting on
