But for now youre living with your big brother, camped out in his spare bedroom. And then quite unexpectedly you meet the man next door. Hes the head teacher of the local high school. Hes twice your age. And hes devastatingly attractive. Soon you find youre watching him. All the time. But what you dont know is that someone is watching you. Or that what has started as an innocent crush is quickly turning into an obsession as dark as it is deadly. Family secrets, illicit passion and an unexplained murder lie at the heart of Lisa Jewells gripping new novel.

I will say this didn‘t grab me right away. However, I do think this was building in a way such that you don‘t realize it, and then when it implodes, it happens so fast you feel like you can‘t keep up, but it is also so amazing and satisfying that it‘s darn near brilliant, and then that ending. Jewell drops that holycrapwhatjusthappened at the very end, and then well shoot, now the book is over and you are just left alone with your thoughts.

WOW! 😳 So many different things going on in this book and everyone's creeping on everyone else!! A prominent teacher's wife is found murdered and everyone's got a story! Appearances are not what they seem as you get caught in this maze with a new twist every few chapters! Great immersive storytelling and characters that are flawed and unpredictable!

I‘m sorry but someone‘s stomach has the supple give of freshly baked bread crust!! What 🤷‍♀️ this is the third time I‘ve stopped to shake my head at descriptions in this book, don‘t think it will be lasting much longer.

This just didn't catch my attention like I thought it would. I probably expected too much after other peoples reviews.
Had a good ending but I found the chapters erratic and lost interest in the middle.

SilversReviews Sorry it didn‘t work for you. (edited) 3mo
suzie.reads @SilversReviews I've felt the same about both Lisa Jewell books, maybe she just isn't the author for me. 3mo
SilversReviews @suzie.reads That may be the case. At least you have given her a try. 😊 (edited) 3mo
IamIamIam I listened to this and could see why it would have been a tough read in print. There are lots of characters and the janky timeline, which is popular, can get a bit confusing. 3w

Just finished Then She Was Gone and I really didn‘t like it, so I‘m hoping this one makes up for it. The summary makes this one seems much more like an active thriller, which Then She Was Gone was not.

I listened to this as an audiobook and really enjoyed it. There were a couple different storylines that all involved the same several people and came together in the end. The story kept me guessing and I wasn‘t disappointed with the mystery of “who did it”. I appreciated the way different perspectives of the situation were presented and how assumptions can shape the decisions we make. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

IamIamIam Your review is spot on! I just finished this and really loved it! 3w

Great audiobook for a work commute because it‘s entertaining yet doesn‘t require your complete attention. Even though I guessed the ending 2/3 through, there were still enough related plot lines to keep me engaged. 3/5 ⭐️

ambam1987 Can you tell me more how this works?! Do you read, write comments and pass it along to a list of people?! 6mo
cwarnier @ambam1987 I followed @suvata who hosts #lmpbc (litsy mail postal book club). The idea is that you choose a book and read it marking it with your thoughts and comments. Then mail it off to another person on your assigned list. They do the same. Sign ups are done in 4 person groups and in the end you end up with your book back. You keep each book for 1 month. I would guess sign ups for the next round are coming out as this is my lasst book. 6mo

What a fun read!

Lisa Jewell has everyone watching everyone in the “safe” town where Joey and her husband Alfie recently moved to, staying with Joey‘s brother and sister-in-law.

On their street, Mr. Fitzwilliam moves in, and everyone seems so attracted to him, despite his having a wife, Nicola. But there‘s always secrets behind closed doors...

And everyone has a secret in this book. Loved the different perspectives and quite the page-turner!

tjwill That looks delicious! 7mo
knotmagick That looks sooooo good right now! 7mo

So my haul from Half Price Books wasn't as good as I hoped it would be. They had a lot of books, but I felt more than a few of the ones I wanted were over priced for the condition of the book. I'm not against paying full price, or half price as the name of the place states but not for books with pages falling out. I did get these two booka though which I am happy about.

Why is it that so far I have read parts of *every* #LMPBC book this round while waiting for car service? Book 1- oil change, Book 2-snow tire removal and now with Book 3- brakes. (Ugh)

The books certainly make the adulting less painful!

I found this a little hard to get in to at the beginning of the book and my mind wandered while I was listening. There were lots of characters introduced right off the bat which overwhelmed my brain. Having said that, I eventually got used to the jumping between narratives and the final twist actually surprised me.

An entertaining read overall! I agree with other reviews that it builds up slowly at the beginning, but there are enough twists and events that keeps it intriguing. Though I ultimately never warmed up to main character, other characters throughout are lovable and interesting!

Just ok. A little too convoluted and clever for its own good. Seemed to take forever to get going, too.
