Easily one of my top ten books. One of the first books where I didn‘t mind the narration jumping from character to character. I did have some open ended questions after finishing but would totally read it again. #thenshewasgone #psychologicalthriller #lisajewell

Cat.Rogers Thanks! @tokorowilliamwallace a friend of my actually made it! 2mo

I ended up with a second piece of free pie for my birthday (I somehow got two emails and I don‘t look free pie in the mouth - I put it into my mouth.).
I finished this for a upcoming book club and I really enjoyed it. It was my first from this author and I know a lot of people love her. What else should I read from her?

#VinceAndJoy #LisaJewell #BookSpinBingo

Remember falling in love for the first time? Remember thinking, This is The One? Remember life getting in the way? From adolescent snogging to apartment shares, relationships, career crises, and children, Vince & Joy is the unforgettable story of two lives lived separately but forever entwined.

EadieB Back in the 1980s, teenagers Vince and Joy met, fell desperately in love, and never quite said good-bye. Now nearly twenty years later they've both begun to ask themselves if that long-ago romance was the enduring love that they've been searching for. 3mo
EadieB This is a good one about Vince and Joy. They met as teenagers and after following them around separately they finally come together after some hard knocks. I have enjoyed this one and I am almost finished all of Lisa Jewell's novels. She's great! 3mo

#TheHouseWeGrewUpIn #LisaJewell #BookSpinBingo

Meet the Bird family. They live in a honey-colored house in a picture-perfect Cotswolds village, with rambling, unkempt gardens stretching beyond. Pragmatic Meg, dreamy Beth, and tow-headed twins Rory and Rhys all attend the village school and eat home-cooked meals together every night.

EadieB Their father is a sweet gangly man named Colin, who still looks like a teenager with floppy hair and owlish, round-framed glasses. Their mother is a beautiful hippy named Lorelei, who exists entirely in the moment. And she makes every moment sparkle in her children's lives.
Then one Easter weekend, tragedy comes to call. The event is so devastating that, almost imperceptibly, it begins to tear the family apart.
4mo
EadieB Years pass as the children become adults, find new relationships, and develop their own separate lives. Soon it seems as though they've never been a family at all. But then something happens that calls them back to the house they grew up in -- and to what really happened that Easter weekend so many years ago. 4mo
EadieB Told in gorgeous, insightful prose that delves deeply into the hearts and minds of its characters, The House We Grew Up In is the captivating story of one family's desire to restore long-forgotten peace and to unearth the many secrets hidden within the nooks and crannies of home. 4mo

A gritty, dark psychological thriller that had me trying to work out what the truth was from the first chapter. Told from several points of view with some unreliable narrators and people hiding some dark secrets. Another great twisty read from Lisa Jewell.⭐⭐⭐⭐ #invisiblegirl #lisajewell #goodreads #litsy #thestorygraph #amazonkindle #tea_sipping_bookworm #bookqueen #bookstagram #thriller

Leah lives across the street from Toby and his eccentric house where Toby has a lot of misfit tenants. Leah finally meets Toby and somehow with fate, romance and a helping hand, Toby and Leah's relationship show the makings of a dream come true. I love the characters in this book. It was fun to read about them and their quirky ways and see what was in store for them.

EadieB I found it to be a feel-good story laced with Jewell's warmth and humor. I have read many of her books and have enjoyed them all. If you like touching and entertaining books then I am sure you will enjoy this one. 6mo

#TheTruthAboutMelodyBrowne #LisaJewell #March2022 #20in4 #Readathon #BookSpinBingo

This book is about a young woman searching for answers about her mysterious past. Melody Browne‘s house burned down when she was a child. All her family‘s possessions and her memories were destroyed. Melody has had no recollection of her life before the fire. She is now a single mother in her early 30's living in London with her teenage son.

EadieB She hasn‘t seen her parents since she left home at fifteen. While attending a hypnotist show with a date, she faints. When she comes around, she suddenly remembers her life before the fire. The story has a complex plot with multiple storylines and believable characters. There are lots of secrets with shocking twists that kept the pages turning until the very end. 6mo
EadieB If you enjoy stories about family then you will enjoy this book. I have read many of Lisa Jewell's novels and have enjoyed them all. 6mo

#OneHitWonder #LisaJewell #FabulousFebruary #BookSpinBingo

Ana Wills arrives in London to clean out her half-sister's apartment after her death. Bee was a pop-singer and Ana dreamed of living that lifestyle. Ana decides to investigate Bee's secret life of a remote country cottage and an ex-boyfriend. Will what Ana finds out about Bee's death change her forever? This was an interesting read about the sisters' relationship and family happenings.

EadieB I enjoyed the characters of Zander, Lol and Flint and their witty discussions. Lisa Jewell is an entertaining writer and I plan on reading more of her books. If you like chic-lit then I think you will enjoy Lisa Jewell's books. 8mo
