Open Your Eyes

Cover: 'Open Your Eyes'

Staff Review: "Open Your Eyes" by Paula Daly


Jane leads a relatively normal life, taking care of two children and teaching a creative writing class (while she not-so-patiently waits for the day she is an officially published author). Her husband, Leon, is already an accomplished novelist and the main breadwinner of the family. When he's brutally attacked in their own driveway while Jane is only steps away inside, Jane's life crumbles around her. What makes it even worse? She suddenly becomes the main suspect. In an effort to clear her name and find out what truly happened, Jane is forced to delve into the secrets her husband kept, even though she is threatened along the way. I loved this new novel by one of my favorite authors. It was an enticing, fast-paced read about jealousy and secrets, and the twist at the end was fantastic!
