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.

A twisty, snarky, entertaining riff on classic Gothic tales set in modern day Alabama with some barbed social commentary. Secretive (sometimes unlikeable) narrators add to the suspense. I found the coarse language grew rather tiresome without adding much to the story or atmosphere although this may not bother most readers. The audio version was well produced and engaging even though some of the southern accents felt jarringly forced. Overall, a fast, entertaining, and satisfying read for those who enjoy modern re-tellings, domestic thrillers, suspense, and Gothic fiction.
