I can see why this is one of her popular titles! Spooky premise, with a solid build up, and unexpected twists. It left off in a slightly odd spot though, but I suppose that's why there's now a sequel! Will be interesting to see if that one ties up some loose ends. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Creepy. Still not sure I trust one of the characters. Sad twists and unexpected turns. All set in a creepy gothic mansion.

A good read. Kept me hooked as to what would happen. Slightly rushed at the end and left me wanting to know more about the characters.

Such a dark, twisted, entangled tale of lies, secrets and a whole lot more!
Libby learns about the identity of her birth and finds out she is the sole inheritor of a mansion in Chelsea. Everything in Libby‘s life is about to change.
Lucy Jewell is the queen of thrillers especially those involving dysfunctional families.

TheSpineView Corn casserole! That's a new to me. Happy Tuesday! 12mo
iread2much Thanks for the tag! My plans are to finish at least one book, and my favorite thanksgiving dish is stuffing with gravy! 12mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @carlthecattt the easy way! Jiffy mix, can corn, cream style corn,1 cup of sour cream, 1/2 cup of butter, and 2 eggs. Use an 8x8 baking dish, combine all of the ingredients and mix well. Bake at 45-50 minutes on 350 degrees and remove when it is golden brown 😋😋😋 12mo

Thanks for the tag @TheSpineView

1. tagged
2. My grandson Will - 14 months and so much fun
3. When a wrong name is used midway in a book - I start to think “who is that character, why don't I remember him/her“ then I realize the author meant some other character - and then I'm out of the story - luckily it doesn't happen often

Make a great day everyone -

EadieB I read it and hope you enjoy it. My review: This is a domestic drama about three families with dark secrets. It has an interesting plot with deaths and disappearances. The story is told with 3 points of view, Libby, Lucy and Henry. All the characters are a bit odd but the book is hard to put down as you are eager to find out what is happening. Lisa Jewell is one of my go to authors as I always enjoy her books and this one did not disappoint. 13mo

This book was really good. It's sort of a mystery. A woman inherits a house where a tragedy happened. She was a baby and the only person found alive in the house. But what happened to everyone else that was living there?

LitStephanie

I read this engrossing, menacing-mood thriller in a few days. A young, adopted woman comes into her inheritance of a mansion from her birth parents and tries to find out more about them, and their violent deaths. It isn't quite perfect--the concealment of Lucy's true identity feels forced and unnatural after awhile--but the character development and narration, which switches from memoirs to present action, are great.

I didn‘t enjoy this as much as other books that I‘ve read from this author, the main reason being that it was confusing with too many characters. I didn‘t feel like the story came together all that well and there were some loose ends which needed tied up

How can the premise of this not grab you? I was sucked in very quickly and needed to know how things resolved. What I appreciated was the subtle twists - they came out of nowhere but weren't completely ridiculous like you often see in this sort of book. And the end was satisfying in a way that I didn't expect it to be.

Thanks to @TheLudicReader for the tip on this being a quick read.

Book 2/6 for #AwesomeApril

Jemgirl2014 @MySharonaK Very true. My mom and I watched A Man Called Ove last Sunday and we enjoyed it a lot. It's nice to share a book with non readers in that way. My mom's more of a numbers and figures kind of person. Well, at least we can bond over the film adaptations of my books! 😅 2y
