74. The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins
This book is a modern take off on Jane Eyre. It’s been decades since I’ve read Jane Eyre, so my memory of it was not great. I’m sure there were lots of nods to things that I was just not picking up on because I didn’t have the proper context. This version is set in Birmingham, Alabama in a neighborhood of McMansions known as Thornfield Estates where Jane a young woman with a dark past gets hired a dog walker and meets the mysterious and recently widowed Eddie Rochester. It was an okay book. I probably would have enjoyed it a little more if I had a better connection to Jane Eyre. I give it a 6 out of 10.
