Book review: The Night She Disappeared by Lisa Jewell

Tuesday, July 20, 2021 Permalink

Many of the books I read unfold in dual timelines. Quite often decades apart. The Night She Disappeared by Lisa Jewell offers three separate narratives, though only a year apart. It means secrets and lies haven’t had time to fester, but it means wounds are still fresh and grief is still palpable. Of course it may also mean the story is not yet over.

Book review: The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell

Saturday, August 10, 2019 Permalink

I had planned to only read a little of this book one evening. I should know myself better as it’s rare that I can put a book down once I start, but The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell offered a really strong sense of menace. Or doom. Or maybe just suspense…. so I had to keep reading.

Book review: Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell

Sunday, July 30, 2017 Permalink

In the days I participated in more blog link-ups with US/European book bloggers and reviewers I often heard about books by Lisa Jewell – who I assumed was American, but discovered is English! Her most recent books in particular, sounded to be exactly the sort of books I enjoyed – romantic suspense.

For reasons unknown Jewell’s latest book is my first and I’m glad I finally got around to reading something by the popular author.
