The Wife Upstairs
If you enjoyed Jane Eyre, then you’ll love The Wife Upstairs.
“A contemporary twist on Jane Eyre, The Wife Upstairs is a thriller with more than one unreliable narrator. I loved that this book is set in my hometown of Birmingham, Alabama, and that I knew of many of the places mentioned in the book.”Jamie, Bookmarks
“The Wife Upstairs is a thriller that updates Jane Eyre. Jane is a dog walker who catches the eye of Eddie, a wealthy architect. He’s a recent widow and ready to find love again. Jane wants to believe that Eddie has fallen for her but she’s too smart to not notice the inconsistencies in his story about his late wife and the stories that the women in the neighborhood have about the couple. Jane doesn’t mean to go snooping but it’s lucky that she has since she could have suffered the same fate as Eddie’s first wife. The audiobook is narrated by Emily Shaffer, Kirby Heyborne & Lauren Fortgang; they kept the book moving until that final explosive confrontation.”Caren, Jackson Heights Books
“The Wife Upstairs is a spine-tingling domestic thriller that will keep the reader guessing until the bitter end. The story begins with a woman named Jane, who is a dog walker in an elite neighborhood. She resents the women she works for and takes her frustrations out by pocketing some of their jewelry. One evening, her path crosses Eddie's, who just happens to be a handsome, charming widower. Immediately sparks fly. In a matter of weeks, Jane is living with Eddie, and she is best buddies with the neighborhood women that she used to despise. As Jane settles into her new life, she begins to hear strange sounds coming from the attic. I think that you can pretty much figure out who is making the sounds. The story is fast-paced, and I kept thinking that I had things figured out and then would change my mind. The narration was very well done. ”Melinda, Buttonwood Books and Toys
