participants running rampant throughout, the mystery found in deciphering which of the watchers watched are in fact driven by dark motives.Is it the headmaster, Tom Fitzwilliam, a man that garners way too much attention Or maybe it s his young newlywed neighbor, a woman with a crush who tends to put herself in precarious situations.Is there some modicum of truth to the nonsense the crazy mother of one of Mr Fitzwilliam s students is constantly spewing outside of the painted houses of Melville Heights And what about Freddie, Mr Fitzwilliam s teenage son is it possible he s guilty of than just watching all of his neighbors and chronicling their every move One thing I ve come to expect from Lisa Jewell, an oddball cast my thoughts and feelings for said characters typically running the gamut This time, not so much Instead, I wallowed in neutral territory where this nosey bunch was concerned not particularly enad or filled with disdain finding them just interesting enough to keep me engaged.Naturally, as the majority of suspense novels tend to, Watching You starts off with a dead body A lifeless corpse strewn across a kitchen floor, accompanied by one piece of pivotal evidence lying in a pool of blood Something not easily explained away by the owner, yet in hindsight, maybe too obvious For those readers that fancy themselves part time literary sleuths, this is one sure to keep you guessing Lisa Jewell and just about the entire cast put in quite a bit of work, the goal being to throw readers off the scent Unfortunately, I figured things out earlier than I would have hoped to Don t worry, the answer is not blatantly obvious and in no way did figuring things out hinder my experience In fact, of the four Jewell novels I ve read to date, this is the one I struggled the most to set down for any length of time Meaning, I had to force myself to put it aside to play pretend at being a functioning adult Oh, and did I mention the short chapters Creepy vibe murder plot short chapters reading frenzy Thanks to Atria for providing a review copy in exchange for my honest thoughts. flag 309 likesLike see review View all 58 comments Nov 20, 2018 Debra rated it it was

book I grew up in a community where neighbors kept an eye out for others They also knew your business and you knew theirs at least you thought you did So, what happens when a new family moves into your quiet, safe neighborhood What is their story What are they up to Tom Fitzwilliam is an educator who frequently moves his family from town to town as his job involves coming into troubled schools and fixing them His wife, Nicola, is a frequent runner and his son, Freddie, enjoys taking pictures of his neighbors and watching them from his room When they move into the tight community of Melville Heights, Bristol, all eyes are on them Joey and her husband, Alfie, recently moved in with her brother, Jack and wife, Rebecca, who reside two doors down from the Fitzwilliam family Joey quickly develops a crush on Tom Fitzwilliam He has confidence and swagger which intrigues both men and women Jenna, who lives in the neighborhood, is a student at Tom s school and she is not impressed with Tom Fitzwilliam at all He is a little too friendly with her best friend, Bess, who also has a crush on Mr Fitzwilliam Complicating things for Jenna is the fact that her mother is also obsessed with Mr Fitzwilliam So, what is Tom Fitzwilliam s story Could the rumors about him be true Is he the victim of vicious rumors What is it about him that makes him so appealing to others This book starts strong and immediately drew me in Someone has been murdered in the beginning and the reader does not know who or the motive behind the murder I love when I get to put on my super sleuth hat and attempt to figure out what is going on in a book Jewell did not disappoint She provided interesting characters some likable than others and presents us with information and rumors which kept me guessing and turning the pages This book is told through various POV s and through police transcripts This really worked for me and I was determined to figure out just whodunit and why I found this book to be well thought out and going back to the police transcripts I found them to be a very nice touch Adding them was very clever and I enjoyed the book even due to them I did figure out the ending, but it did not hamper my enjoyment of the book at all There are a lot of characters in this book, but I found it was easy to keep track of them Each has his her own purpose in this book I enjoyed how this book looked at obsession, attraction and how our personal thoughts emotions perceptions shape how we think, react, and the interpretations we make based upon what we see and hear I was captivated by the story and enjoyed how the plot unfolded at a nice pace I found this book to be a fast read, with its revelations, twists, turns and aha moments Thank you to Atria Books and NetGalley who provided me

blessed backlist I believe my first of her books was The Girls in the Garden, but I ve also enjoyed I Found You, And Then She Was Gone, The Third Wife, etc Well, you get the picture To say that this latest book was my most anticipated 2018 release would be an understatement I would say I m relieved that it delivered, but there was never a doubt in my mind that I would enjoy Watching YouIn typical Jewell fashion, this book begins with a bang, and questions are immediately arisen in the readers mind A large cast of seemingly unrelated characters doing seemingly unimportant things follows, but as expected, these individuals are drawn into a sinister web of lies, trauma, and murder The chapters alternate between various POVs mainly Joey, Freddie, and Jenna , interspersed with police transcripts of varying interviews for the murder described in the prologue While the first 2 3 of the book is a slow burn, it is far from boring or dull the tension slowly ramps up to the point where I had sparks coming from my finger tips turning the pages so fast in the final countdown err 100 pages that is The letter written just prior to the epilogue was a truly wonderful touch it answered many questions I had throughout and added an emotional touch that gave credibility to a certain character s actions As always, Lisa Jewell has provided a satisfying character study into the darker side of human nature There are lots of twists and turns, and some that are easier to spot than others, but it is such a satisfying read Can I humbly recommend this as a post Christmas holiday purchase for my North American friends It comes out on December 26th and would be THE best use of those gift cards that you know you ll be receiving 3 Thank you Atria Books for providing a review copy. flag 201 likesLike

here and there I started to forget who was doing what So you definitely need to pay attention I am excited to say that I did not guess the outcome of this novel, which makes me want to do a happy dance As described in the blurb, there is a set of estates called called Melville Heights and there is lots of watching going on between these houses Tom Fitzwiiliam is the headmaster at the local school and just about everyone seems to love him He is positive, sensitive, good natured, great with the kids and parents and even handsome, sound too good to be true Maybe His wife Nicola spends a lot of time trying to keep in shape by running and going to the gym and wearing the right clothes etc after all I told you her husband was handsome, ha Their son Freddie is quite a very different sort of boy, he goes to a private school and likes to spend a lot of time on his computer and using his new high powered, extra special binoculars to spy on his neighbors, well at the beginning he claims he was just writing about what was happening in his neighborhood How much does he know about the crime Two doors down live a well to do heart surgeon and his wife He is a busy doctor who doesn t spend a lot of time at home, his wife Rebecca doesn t seem to mind, she spends most of her time working on the computer, her door is seldom open We soon find out that she is pregnant and she doesn t seem to be particularly happy about it.Into their lives comes Tom s sister, Joey and her new husband Alfie, you all are going to love Alfie They have just come back from living abroad and are happy when Tom invites them to stay with them as long as they want, they sure do take advantage of that, in a big way Jenna Tripp lives in the lower area of the Heights her mom has been known to think that there are spies everywhere and that they are watching her and Jenna and filming them Her reasons are confusing, you will have to read for yourself.OK that should be enough to interest you This is the second book this month that I have read which starts at the end of the story and is then written in reverse order telling us the characters thoughts and actions leading up to the day of the crime The other book is A Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult, I wonder if this is a new trend So there is your last clue, you will know at the beginning that a crime has been committed and you are given some clues but the rest is for you to try and unravel.I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who enjoys a well written, character driven thriller This novel will be published in December 2018 I

picturesque closed doors of these painted beauty houses lies dark, ugly and sinister secrets The kind of secrets that inevitably make it to the light of day through MURDER The book opens with a murder scene We know someone was killed now we have to figure out who and why Jewell is skilled at diverting our attention and making us question everyone As we begin to meet the inhabitants of this community we realize the killer could literally be anyone There is so much going on here and nothing is quite what it seems from the outside looking in.Each home and family has so much going on beyond it s surface There were many themes touched on within this book obsession, attraction, abuse, trust, infidelity, marriage and parenting Jewell is certainly a master craftsman at spinning her tale into an intricately layered web While there were some things that I was able to figure out, there were others that left me absolutely gobsmacked I loved how perspective played such a huge part in the storyline Everyone seemed to be watching everyone else for one reason or another Characters see things from their own vantage points, take things out of context and make assumptions based on their own beliefs At times these collide with another character s view and sometimes things seem to perfectly align causing us as reader s to form and reform our own beliefs as we read I changed my mind so many times while reading, it felt like reader whiplash This is only my second Lisa Jewell book and each one has been an amazing reading experience I can say with certainty that I will be reading from her

fix a school on the brink of failure, Tom has charmed both the locals and the students Women throw themselves at him and men want to be him In spite of those who admire Tom, there are those who see right through his polished veneer They wonder if he is too close to his students They wonder if he cheats on his wife His own son questions whether or not his father is a good man.Alternating POVs make up the narrative Joey, a married woman infatuated with Tom, Jenna, a student at Tom s school, and Freddie, Tom s son Police interviews with various witnesses and suspects are also woven in, as well as brief POV s from the head detective I didn t love the characters Joey was a bit whiny and Freddie was an oddball I did like Jenna s character While I don t always enjoy multiple POV s, in this case, they serve a purpose as they both cast doubt and exonerate Tom Watching You is really about perspective What one character might see, another does not The narratives people build from watching one another lead to discovering truths but also to great inaccuracies.What I liked about Watching You was that with every narrative shift, my perspective on Tom changed I made up my mind about him early on, which made this even interesting to read once the truth was revealed I did find the pacing a bit slow in the beginning and the narrative to be a bit disconnected, but everything came together eventually As always, Lisa Jewell changes her style from book to book so I am never really sure what to expect, which is one of the things I enjoy about reading her novels I figured out one of the twists, but it didn t detract from my enjoyment Overall, I enjoyed watching these characters watch each other I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and Atria Books in exchange for an

the recorded police interviews that are dispersed throughout the book, giving clues to who is suspected and where the investigation is focusing I kept trying to figure out Tom and figure out if he was misunderstood or just another cagey predator.I was able to figure out the first twist, but that was due to the clever hints that Jewell laid out in the previous chapters This was an intriguing

perspective, but we get that of those around him, we learn about him and form our opinions of him through their eyes The three primary narrators in the story see Tom in very different ways Joey the newlywed who has just moved in twohouses away from him is seriously infatuated almost borderline obsessed with him Freddy, Tom s son and a kind of lovable oddball is sometimes frightened and sometimes not by him Jana the teenager down the street and a student at Tom s school is very creeped out by him, convinced he is acting inappropriately towards her BFF we also get treated to the police transcripts of the investigation peppered in throughout the book, I thought this added an additional layer to the story.Throughout the story there is a lot of watching going on Freddie is watching the entire neighborhood let me just add in my opinion here, getting your teenage son high power binoculars, probably not a great idea, just sayingWe also had Jenna s mother convinced crazy shenanigans are going on, watching Tom Jenna is watching and watching out for her BFF Joey is watching the comings and goings of Tom and his wife and so on, made me wonder what is going on in my own neighborhood This book was really all about perception and assumption, my opinion of each and every character in this book change from beginning to end made you realize you never really get the entire picture a wonderful book about the darker side of what goes on behind closed doorsAbsolutely recommend to anyone who enjoys an addictive dark twisted story with fantastically developed characters and a mystery that will keep you guessing many thanks to Random House Cornerstone for my copy of this book flag 122 likesLike see review View all 26 comments Dec 01, 2018 Christina Traveling Sister rated it really

Recipe a Read Lisa Jewell s Watching You starts out with an immediate hook there s a dead body laying on the floor and Detective Rose Pelham as she examines the crime scene to try to solve the mystery Following this shocking first chapter, we fall right into the story, told mostly through one of three major POVs Josephine Joey Mullen Joey is speaking to her late mother at her grave, updating her on her life and the choices she s made As the younger sister of an esteemed elder brother, she has always felt wayward, lesser and essentially like a hot mess comparatively.At it s heart, this book is much like the title a story about interwoven lives and how in a neighborhood like Melville Heights, someone is always watching Meet Tom Fitzwilliam he s a new hot shot teacher in town, cleaning up a troubled school and making the ladies swoon as he walks down the street For some reason his charm, wit and fairly run of the mill dad looks are making everyone male and female alike weak at the knees Everyone that is, except Jenna Tripps mother who knows Tom Fitzwilliam is up to no good Jenna s best friend Bess however, is another story and obsession is putting her feelings towards Mr Fitzwilliam lightly He s not old, Bess replied He s mature Like wine Like Cheese I love him I actually love him As the story progressed, for me I was struck with a little bit of Big Little Lies vibes along with this feeling a bit like the mystery thriller version of one of those cheesy movies with too many celebrities The original of course being Love Actually, eventually followed by lesser movies such as Valentines Day and the like While this didn t feel like there were too many characters, this was certainly a character driven psychological thriller There are quite a few story lines going on here and it was a bit difficult for me to grasp at first While the overall development of each character was done really well, I found their individuality to fall just short for me at a few points throughout this read.And then the word came to her, the elusive word she d been chasing through her thoughts The look that Mr Fitzwilliam had given It has been predatory.I ve said it before and I m sure I ll say it again I m a pretty garbage detective for the most part but I did see the ending to this one coming from about the halfway mark While I don t think it necessarily detracted from my overall enjoyment of this read because I gobbled this baby up in almost one sitting I do wish there had been a few surprises for the reader However, that being said this is definitely on the psychological side of thrillers and the shock value tends to be in the progression of the story instead of the a ha moment at the end.Overall, I really enjoyed this quick, fun and fast paced story Jewell has an incredible story telling skill and the ability to create really well rounded, character driven novels This is only my second novel by her but I have a few I ve picked up in the past year that I m excited to read Her popularity is definitely earned I completed this as a Traveling Sisters read and it was a real joy to read and discuss with others flag 120 likesLike see review View all 8 comments Dec 15, 2018

crush on her neighbor, the headmaster of the local school, named Tom Fitzwilliam Tom appears to be happily married, with a teenaged son, named Freddie The community heaps high praise on Tom and the great job he is doing as headmaster However, Freddie, unbeknownst to his parents, and most everyone else, is an accomplished little neighborhood spy His observations reveal a host of little intricate insights into the lives of his neighbors and about his own father But he may not be the only one keeping an eye on things The question is whether or not these watchers are drawing the right conclusions based on what they have witnessed It seems that no two Lisa Jewell novels are exactly the same, but that s a good thing, in my opinion This one was not exactly what I was expecting after Then She Was Gone The atmosphere in here is dark, but mildly quirky, as well It s creepy, and some of the implications about the characters made me squirm a little While the cast is moderately large, the author did a great job of minimizing the chore of keeping up with all of them individually Jewell, adeptly withholds key information from readers, keeping them completely in the dark, until just the right moment Then Jewell lowers the hammer Boom Very clever Looking back on it now, I can see the trap, but as I was reading the book, I blindly stepped right into it So, the author managed to pull one over on me, which endears me to her all the I m glad to see Lisa Jewell exercising her writing prowess, as her novels always surprise me Smart move on her part, too, since it keeps readers on

requested the book via NetGalley and was awarded it overnight I was super excited and planned it for my October schedule so I could have a little scary psychological stuff to read as the temperature got chillier and the sun set earlier Overall, I was pleased with the book and would recommend it, but there were a few things that needed some additional attention before the final version was released to readers.The story takes place in current times in an English village where several of the neighbors have a penchant for watching one another through binoculars, cameras, or even just between the separation of curtains in a window There are 20 important cast members lives we read about and try to understand who s connected to who when they say things using generic names like she or he to keep us in suspense There s a newlywed couple, a couple with a baby on the way, a couple fighting, a mother and daughter who act weird, young teen friends who are hooking up with boys they shouldn t be, a teen boy who is a bit peculiar at first then we learn why all in all, it s a fine cast with lots of potential but no one was superb or lovable or hate able my new word of the day As we understand the connections and who s misbehaving, we begin to see how everything unravels until the big twist at about 90% in the book.Unfortunately, I thought it was too easy to guess That doesn t mean it wasn t good, but I believe it could have used some mystery, red herrings, and darker tones Additionally, several characters were manipulated to create red herrings which I m totally cool with but the end of their story and the root cause of why it happened wasn t really sewn back together I don t believe it was purposeful either, just not enough focus on total symmetry across the entire novel Because of this and a few characters who weren t as fleshed out as I thought they should be Rebecca, mother of girl who took lots of photos, the group that met at the house , I couldn t give it 5 stars.The plot was strong, the characters were passionate The dialog and descriptions were vivid and consistent Rarely did I find myself tempted to skim skip a few paragraphs It was just missing something to make it really really pop This is a genre I really love diving into, so it certainly met a lot of my go to features but fell shy of where Jewell s books normally take me It has a few difficult stories to handle I m okay with them, but others might be alarmed such as child abuse, spouse abuse, possible rape, affairs, teacher student relationships being crossed It s almost as if the book wanted to cross a heavy line into being stark and scary, but it stopped too short to be a total dark psychological thriller and went too far to just say it gently handled these situations We were in the middle and uncertain which way to gravitate on whether a character was black or white several were muted grey in their tendencies and behaviors.For me, in a book, it wavered too much It s probably very reminiscent of reality, but I wanted a bigger gut punch or a lighter hint at misbehavior An example is the spouse abuse One says nothing is happening and the other says yes, we occasionally hurt one another I m paraphrasing We never get a real answer, so I m uncertain why it was left that way when it was 1 not critical to the plot and 2 made us waffle on how we were supposed to interpret what was going on Given the actual people involved were critical to the murder that happened, I felt we needed something transparent.That said, it s still a very strong book I will keep reading from Jewell And if you can accept these things, and still enjoy a great story, you ll be fine with this one flag 77 likesLike see review View 2 comments Sep 27, 2018 Felicia rated it really

Again, a tired premise for this genre but what s a reader to do Next, we are introduced to a plethora of characters, and while I m all for complicated plots with a lot of players, I found myself confused often than not It took me well over half of the book to be able to start a chapter without thinking hhhmmmmmwhich one is this again For me, the characters lacked their own unique voice which is necessary to pull off this type of storyline.Now for the good stuff I very much enjoyed the plot, I love how all of these characters in the neighborhood are linked together with invisible, twisty, tied in a knot silly string It s a slow build with just the exact amount of mystery to keep you turning the pages I only had one omg what is happening moment around the 85% mark and was never, at any time, sure of what was actually going on until it was revealed Oh but alas the author chose to end things with a futile and hurried attempt at wrapping up the story with an epilogue that went and ruined it for me Overall it was a quick read with an intriguing plot, despite the slow crawling pace Would I read another book by this author Heck yeah I would.I received an ARC from NetGalley in

everything you would expect from a mystery thriller Lisa Jewell s writing is always above average and in this book she s exceptional.Sometimes it makes me cringe when I am reading thrillers with sloppy writing, where characters constantly bit their lips, have pounding hearts, having goosebumps in a maddeningly repetitive way and this book has none of it There aren t any unnecessary, cringing paragraphs but it s all tidy and good quality writing The characters are solid and real maybe except the villain Surprise ending is delivered nicely, tension didn t drop until the end for me A 5 star in mystery thriller category.I also think Jewell really writes her teenagers much better than her adults The Girls and this book are my favourites from her and they both have groups of teens which are brilliantly portrayed Thanks to NetGalley and publisher for the free copy in exchange for an honest review. flag 76 likesLike see review View all 10 comments Dec 04, 2018 Carrie rated it really liked

Lisa Jewell novel but with enjoying both of the ones I have read I do see why reviewers are usually raving about her stories This is another great psychological thriller that is easy to become captivated by once you pick it up The story is told from multiple points of view but still became easy to follow once getting started.The book begins with a short diary entry from a young girl in love with her teacher in 1996 before jumping ahead twenty years with a prologue of a murder investigation You may at this point think what in the world Who s murdered What is going on But then we get into the meat of the story which jumps back about two and a half months before the murder.What Lisa Jewell has then done is take us back to this neighborhood before the murder ever happened and slowly introduce all the cast of characters that each have their own secrets and lies to follow At the center of the story is Tom Fitzwilliam who is a teacher who seems to have a sort of charismatic way of drawing in those around him Then between the story building up to the murder date we have flashes of the investigation after the murder.I will admit it took a a few chapters to settle in and get used to the set up with this one but it was hard to put down once I found that groove This is a bit of a slow build story but that pace complimented the amount of characters and situations happening to give the reader time to familiarize with it all and I didn t find it to drag the book down the way a lot of slower paced reads are By the time the ending of the book came around I had guessed this or that and the other but still ended up surprised at how it turned out so I definitely recommend checking this one out.I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.For reviews please

first experience reading the incredible Lisa Jewell blew my mind There are times when an author is hyped up for good reason , but I feel a small sense of disappointment when I finally join in on their work Perhaps because I don t have the history with the author, or because the book I came in on wasn t their most ground breaking work NONE of that can be said about my first experience with Lisa Jewell If anything, all of the amazing things I ve heard fellow readers say about Jewell pale in comparison with the journey I just took through Watching You There s not a moment of this book that I d change Outstanding ReflectionFirst I want to talk about the narrative structure We begin with a murder and see bits of evidence at the scene Then we travel back a few months, to the moment Joey Mullen first arrives to Melville Heights, living in one of the storied painted houses she admired so much From here, many characters begin to pick up the narrative This isn t a book just about Joey In the same way a neighborhood has hidden threads connecting people, some by proximity, and others by something deeper, so does this novel The way the stories picked up on one another, bringing pieces of information and perspectives in to make the final twists and turns stand out was truly a masterpiece.If there s one thing we can all learn from this book, it is that someone is always watching Those hidden moments that you think no one saw The extra bottle of wine you pick up at the store, the lingering glance you give someone after they walk away, the item you drop into a neighbor s bin in a neighborhood like Melville Heights, even the most mundane occurrences are noted So what happens when a murder occurs on the same block Who will have a piece of the puzzle I found Joey to be a stand out character She s self destructive She describes her mind as a hurricane as someone incapable of following their instincts She understands what the bad decisions are, but she sees infinite possible moments and she seems to haphazardly push forward without organizing her thoughts It would be easy to think Joey is unlikeable, given the nature of her storyline attracted to another man But I never felt Joey had bad intentions Joey is someone who just doesn t have herself together She s in a halfway stage between grown up and young adult, and she is finding her way I m so excited for readers to experience Joey s story There are too many great characters to talk about this review would be 100 pages long , but I want to mention a few standouts The first is school girl Jenna Tripp From an outside perspective, Jenna has it all She s beautiful, popular, and has a close group of best friends Jenna s life could seem easy But Jenna has a mother with somewhat undiagnosed mental illness Her mothers hovers on the line between ok and needing help Jenna has so much on her plate, and I looked forward to her chapters She s a remarkable girl and character And then I want to end with those enigmatic Fitzwilliams The mother, who fades into the background, enad by her perfect, magnetic husband, and a bit lost in life The son, Freddie, who keeps watch over the neighborhood, documenting the small moments that may be the clue to the murder, while still struggling to find his way as an awkward teenager And then Mr Fitzwilliam the center to the whole story In a way, Mr Fitzwilliam is the center to the neighborhood He s a man with a trail of admirers And yet, he s difficult to pindown Is he a charming school head, or is he someone sinister You ll have to read to find out Thank you so much to Atria for my copy to review I loved this book flag 63 likesLike see review View all 14 comments May 16, 2018 Nicki rated it it was amazing review of another edition Omg,Lisa Jewell has totally

Melville Heights with Joey s brother Jack and his heavily pregnant wife Rebecca.Then there s Freddie Fitzwilliam who lives two doors away with his parents Tom and Nicola.And finally there is fourteen year old Jenna Tripp who lives down in lower Melville with her mum Francis.We know from the beginning of the story that a violent crime as been committed and scattered throughout the book are police interviews with some of the characters.The behaviour and actions of a couple of the characters at times gave me the creeps because they came across as sinister and inappropriate but as happens in real life,not everything is what it appears to be.Sometimes a person s actions can be misinterpreted and misconstrued,making that person appear creepy and unlikable.By the end of the story I had completely changed my mind about a couple of characters,my thoughts and misconceptions turning out to be totally wrong.No pages of this intricately plotted story comes across as unnecessary padding,The author s words flow from the page with ease drawing the reader into the world and lives of her vivid realistic characters.Worth far than five stars and highly recommended to anyone who enjoys a seriously well written thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat and definitely messes with your head,leaving you feeling very dizzy but not wanting the story to end.Many thanks to Penguin Random House UK

    1. A clever play on perspective, taking things out of context and assumptions something most of us are quick to make collide in this compulsively readable watchable storyline.The central theme of being watched or being the watcher is what elevates this novel from what I consider typical suspense to something much creepier in feel There s a host of participants running rampant throughout, the mystery found in deciphering which of the watchers watched are in fact driven by dark m [...]

    3. I m between 4 4.5 STARSMy love affair with the Lisa Jewell novel goes back years, and I actually have my UK blogger friends to thank for it Before her books really took off in the US, I received copious recommendations from Facebook groups stating that Jewell s novels had become a staple in their reading repertoire, so I hastily headed over to Book Depository and searched through her blessed backlist I believe my first of her books was The Girls in the Garden, but I ve also enjoyed I F [...]


    4. I m very selective when it comes to phychological thrillers, I need to not only feel some kind of thrill or overall tenseness in order to like them but I also want them to be well written I am now definitely a Lisa Jewell fan, I think I would read anything she wrote This is the fourth book of hers that I have read and she never disappoints.O.K the cast of characters is quite large so you should set aside enough time that you can read a large part of the book at one time I found if I tried to I m [...]
