by Rachel Hawkins
I just finished reading “The Wife Upstairs”, by Rachel Hawkins. A book filled with unlikeable people who do unlikeable things to each other and only look out for themselves. You never quite know if these people actually like each other or not, but either way, it was a good read.
This book’s main character is called Jane, and she is the character I like the most. Trying to run from her past and make a better future, she meets Eddie, a widower and they fall in love, but she has to deal with the story of his dead wife Bea, and her best friend Blanche. There are other sub-plots in the story which add to the intrigue for sure.
This boom was filled with twists and turns and the ending was just vague enough that it left me wondering….
Anyway, The Wife Upstairs is well written, with well developed characters and a plot that is interesting and intriguing. Even though I was left with questions at the end of reading this book, it didn’t really matter because that was the essence of the book: How everything we think we know is not really what we know and how people are not who we think they are. Mysterious and full of secrets and bad intentions.
I liked the book and I think others will as well.
