The author did a great job of alluding to certain ideas without giving away too much. However, there was one point where something was hinted at, that I thought for sure would later be confirmed or denied and never was. So if I had one issue with the book, it would be that it left a little too much unanswered—at least to my liking. Though Janes clearly wanted to let readers decide on a few things themselves, I have to admit when I reached the end of the story I craved resolution.
This is a well-written story filled with compelling personalities. If you enjoy character-driven novels as I do, WHAT JENNIFER KNOWS is a welcome read.
When Jennifer meets Freya at the grocery store, she soon is listening to Freya’s plan to propose to her boyfriend, Oliver. Jennifer and Freya soon fall into an easy friendship, and Jennifer wonders why she and Blythe can’t have the same kind of relationship.
Jennifer’s longtime friend Abi can’t make up her mind whether or not to ask her boyfriend Ed to move in with her. Jennifer supports Abi in her decision.
But when Jennifer discovers what Freya and Abi don’t know, can she tell them?
Will Jennifer and Blythe ever find common ground? What role does Jennifer’s grandson Tim play in keeping Jennifer and Blythe at odds or helping them reconcile whatever differences are keeping their relationship on rocky ground?
I relished reading What Jennifer Knows. Wendy Janes did an excellent job crafting the story and developing the characters. It is a quick read but contained all the necessary details needed to keep my interest. Jennifer must deal with the issues of morality and loyalty and leaves the reader wondering, “what would I do?” I recommend this to all readers of women’s fiction. I look forward to reading more from this author.
I was given a copy of What Jennifer Knows by author Wendy Janes in exchange for an honest review.
Jennifer struggles with her relationship with her daughter as well as her friendships with Freya and Abi. The main question of morality comes down to whether a friend should share the truth about something they know or withhold it and wait. There is never a right answer or reaction to this and each can have different ends. A trial of relationships, both on the personal front as well as with friends raises a dilemma in Jennifer's mind which forms the crux of this story. The author's style of writing is simple and flows well.
The supporting characters are nice and developed to some extent. I believe that there could have been more depth added to the story and the characters, making it a bit more complex. However, on the whole the story works. It is a decent read and a different kind of plot that ultimately forces the reader to think about certain moral ideas.
