Shortly she meets a rich smart hunk Edward “Eddie” Rocher, who lives in the same place at Thornfield Estate, and very soon Jane and Eddie started dating. After a couple of months, they get intimate and sleep together and after 2 weeks they got engaged.
Eddie was already married and his wife Bea has been considered dead for the last six months. Bea was found dead in a boating accident with her friend, Blanche. At that time Eddie and Bea were just a married couple only for some little time prior to this accident. Bea and Eddie met on a vacation a year ago and got quickly engaged and married soon after.
However, the climax of the book strikes here as Bea was not dead actually. She has been locked in the panic room of their home, where she wrote her side of the story that how Eddie killed her childhood best friend Blanche at midnight after joining them. And she found herself locked in a panic room on the third floor of their house after waking up the next day. Eddie time to time provides her food and while doing this Bea secretly puts her journal in Eddie’s pocket in a hope that Jane gets that and saves her.
The relationship between Bea and Blanche was quite complicated. Bea’s mother was an alcoholic on other hand her father was abusive. They both met in their school time in boarding school. And then they got separated after school and finally when they reunited their relationship got changes positively.
Bea was now rich and successful and it turn competitive but Bea always put Blanche as her priority. After Bea meets Eddie, Blanche comes on to Eddie, and Bea sleeps with Blanche’s husband Tripp to get back at them (though it’s later uncovered that Eddie actually rejected Blanche’s advances).
Back to the story, Blanche’s dead body is finally found in the lake, and Tripp got arrested for her murder. On another side, Jane hears some awkward noises in her house (which was Bea). She shares this thing with Eddie, who was acting strangely.

The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins Review
This book The Wife Upstairs By Rachel Hawkins is considered to be a thriller and mystery and it went true so far but as the title of the book is quite exciting, I expected more about the wife upstairs but it was not that bad actually I found many twists in the story which are still to figure out and of course the mysteries so many mysteries that are still untangled.
This book consists of many accounts of violence like the murder of 2 people is considered and domestic violence, a woman is locked in a panic room for a long, a woman attacked a man so hard who left with blood and broken teeth, and many more.
Nevertheless, the book is full of suspense that adults will find interesting, and maybe for young age, it will be unsuitable in my perspective.
