The Girls by Lisa Jewell

The Girls was the very first thriller written by Lisa Jewell. I am a huge fan of her thrillers and thought I’d read them all, so I was shocked to discover I’d missed one! Obviously I’m not the only person who had, as it was reissued in 2021 and I picked up a copy in Sainsbury’s recently. Lisa Jewell always sets her books in these vivid and slightly quirky settings, and The Girls is no exception. The action...

The Night She Disappeared by Lisa Jewell

The Night She Disappeared is the latest thriller by Lisa Jewell. I love Lisa Jewell’s thrillers and had been looking forward to reading this one, but it’s currently only out in hardback. I have a rule of not buying myself hardbacks as they’re a waste of money. It’s OK for other people to buy them for me though, so I asked my eldest to get me this one for my birthday! And I’m so glad I did. It’s...

It is the characters and the settings, as well as the stories, that make me unable to put them down. While sometimes I struggle to find as much time to...

The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell

I absolutely loved Lisa Jewell’s recent psychological thrillers (Watching You, I Found You and Then She Was Gone), so when I saw her latest novel – The Family Upstairs – in Sainsbury’s (my top tip for buying books cheaply), I was very excited. I didn’t even bother to read the blurb to find out what it was about, because I knew I would love it. And I wasn’t wrong. This book is an absolute triumph. I...

Watching You by Lisa Jewell

I loved Lisa Jewell’s previous two books, Then She Was Gone and I Found You, so when I spotted her latest, Watching You, as I walked through WH Smith the other day, I didn’t think twice about buying it. The book starts with a murder, but we don’t know who is dead. It then skips back in time a couple of months to the time building up to the crime. Joey is 27 and desperately trying to be a grown up. But she’s...
