Jar of Hearts is one of my all time favorite thrillers. In my opinion it is severely underated and deserves a lot more attention then it received. When I learned that Jennifer Hillier had a new book on the way, I requested it immediately. I was so excited to be granted this ARC I read it within 24 hours of receiving it.
To be honest when I read the synopisis I was less excited about reading ...more

Four hundred and eighty seconds is all it took for Marin’s life to be forever changed. That’s also about the length of time that it took to completely and utterly pull me in to this book. I lived every single word through Marin’s eyes. I identified with the characters. I either loved or hated them and was shocked by the conclusion when I learned that I had the opportunity to change my mind on a few.
Little Secrets, by Jennifer Hiller is easily going to be a best seller for 2020. It’s impossible ...more

Wow. It is not an easy feat, to write a story with so many storylines that are woven together perfectly. I’m a little speechless, after finishing this book mere seconds ago. I am a new mother, my son is just under two months old. I started reading this book with him in my arms, and I couldn’t imagine the horror of losing your child. It was a very real experience for me, something I had never really thought about before I had a ...more

Secrets always reveal themselves in the end.
I did something I rarely do with a novel. I read LITTLE SECRETS by Jennifer Hillier cover to cover in one day.
What parent can't relate to having their child stolen from them? What horrors must the parents go through? How do they cope? But this isn't a tale just about that. This goes much deeper and becomes much more horrific about people and the secrets they keep.
There are no little secrets. And secrets always reveal themselves in the end. ...more
