1. Patience Is A Virtue

I wouldn’t describe this book as a slow burner but it does require a substantial amount of patience, especially at the beginning when nothing seems to connect, making it a tad hard to follow the different storylines. Fortunately, the intricate plot gets clearer along the way as the author keeps feeding us, slowly but surely, bits and pieces of her cleverly-done-puzzle.

2. Let’s Talk About The Characters

It takes talent to make the reader care about unlikeable characters and the author manages to do just that.

3. Gives Me the Creeps

This is a very dark and twisted psychological thriller with a bunch of vicious characters so needless to say, it’s not for the faint-hearted.

4. Those Twisty-Twists

There is an avalanche of twists and turns in this book, to the point where, on multiple occasions throughout this chilling reading journey, I had to stop and think about what I had just read; it was fun!

5. The Final Verdict

This is a very well-written thriller, creepy and intricate and full of twists and turns that will leave your head spinning, only if you have the patience to get through the first chapters; so read at your own risk 😉

I would like to thank the Publishers, NetGalley, and the Author for sending me a copy of this book.

Book Review: The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins

The Wife Upstairs

Rating: ⭐ ⭐ 


Meet Jane. Newly arrived to Birmingham, Alabama, Jane is a broke dog-walker in Thornfield Estates––a gated community full of McMansions, shiny SUVs, and bored housewives. The kind of place where no one will notice if Jane lifts the discarded tchotchkes and jewelry off the side tables of her well-heeled clients. Where no one will think to ask if Jane is her real name.

But her luck changes when she meets Eddie Rochester. Recently widowed, Eddie is Thornfield Estates’ most mysterious resident. His wife, Bea, drowned in a boating accident with her best friend, their bodies lost to the deep. Jane can’t help but see an opportunity in Eddie––not only is he rich, brooding, and handsome, he could also offer her the kind of protection she’s always yearned for.

Yet as Jane and Eddie fall for each other, Jane is increasingly haunted by the legend of Bea, an ambitious beauty with a rags-to-riches origin story, who launched a wildly successful southern lifestyle brand. How can she, plain Jane, ever measure up? And can she win Eddie’s heart before her past––or his––catches up to her?

With delicious suspense, incisive wit, and a fresh, feminist sensibility, The Wife Upstairs flips the script on a timeless tale of forbidden romance, ill-advised attraction, and a wife who just won’t stay buried. In this vivid reimagining of one of literature’s most twisted love triangles, which Mrs. Rochester will get her happy ending?


1. The Hype is Real

I know this book is hyped for a reason and I know I’m in the minority here and I get it, I get why this book is hitting the mark for so many readers, but these are my reasons why it completely missed it for me…

2. Make me Believe 

Neither the characters nor their actions are believable and usually, I’m ok with this to a certain extent, especially if the book has other qualities to redeem it; this was not the case in this one.

3. Surprise Me

When I pick up a thriller, I look forward to a thrilling ride with twist and turns that keep me on my toes. The main twist of this book is crystal clear from the very beginning and it sets the scene for a series of predictably underwhelming twists.

4. Ridiculous

You know what’s worse than predictable twists? A ridiculous ending and this book managed to have both!

5. The Final Verdict

Not my cup of tea but it’s so many readers’ cup of coffee and as I said before, I get it!

I would like to thank the Publishers, NetGalley, and the Author for sending me a copy of this book.
