The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer that I am linking my Sunday Sum-Ups with. Stop by and say hello!
It has been a bitter-sweet week here at the BVT homestead. On one hand, some heartbreaking news and med increases have kept me torn, but on the other, I had two welcomed opportunities to sit and catch up with a few dear friends (something I do not do enough). Life has a way of handing us some hard reminders, and we must not lose sight of what we have. With that said, please know I deeply value each of you. You have made a lasting impression in my life that cannot be erased.

I am actively trying to reduce the number of posts I am scheduling. The goal is to get down to about 3 to 4 a week. I am officially caught up on tours and guest posts and hoping to focus more on 1 to 2 reviews with an occasional discussion and the usual Friday or Sunday post. I feel like 6 and 7 posts a week is too much. I want to be able to give each the appropriate amount of time in the “spotlight” and be able to properly respond to comments. Thoughts on this? How many posts do you like to see from blogs you follow?
Jar of Hearts
By Jennifer Hillier
This is the story of three best friends: one who was murdered, one who went to prison, and one who’s been searching for the truth all these years . . .
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 Geo’s 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?
