A combination of family/couple drama, related with a boarding school, character looking for her life identity and independence. So good. The audiobook was excellent. Many unlikely characters, many perspectives but so well integrated. Even when some twists were predictable to me I was wrong in The Who did it. Fast read. 3.8/4⭐️ The gifts in this subscription box for this were practical. I liked them.

Another really good read from Lisa Jewell, this was quite a simple theme, but quite complex in actuality and with different timelines. I did it as an audiobook but do feel it would have been better as a physical read to keep the different timelines and multitude of characters straight. Some good twists as you‘d expect along the way. Quite a big and long book.

Another great mystery from Lisa Jewell! Full of twists and turns, family drama and great character development. I will admit that there were some convenient instances that didn‘t seem particularly realistic - I can‘t say exactly what or it might give something away - but overall a solid read. Absolutely loved the narrator too! 🌟🌟🌟🌟

WOW 🤩 This was absolutely amazing. Very intense with a satisfying ending. I was riveted throughout and could not get enough. I am so glad I did the audio version because Joanne Froggatt is AMAZING! I often forgot it was her I was so sucked into the story.

I only read 3 books in February. The Kingdom of Back was a super easy read, very cool fantasy retelling of Moazart and his sister.
A Flicker in the Dark and The Night She Disappeared were both exceptional mysteries!!
Must reads for sure! I tagged my favourite of the three

9/22 My Feb book club pick and this was a fine way to distract myself from feeling poorly. On the whole the characters were a little 2D and there was quite a lot of filler in the middle but it he mystery was resolved pretty satisfactorily and I appreciated a slightly different spin on the usual. I will definitely pick up another book by Jewell. ⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

I‘ve been wanting to read Lisa Jewell for years but this turned out to be my first from her! One of the best thrillers I‘ve read in awhile! It draws you in by weaving past and present narratives with twists along the way. Half of ya through you think ‘oh I see what‘s going to happen‘ but in the end… ‘oh maybe I don‘t…‘ 4/5 ⭐️‘s from me!

amb_morg You should check out The Family Upstairs!! That was the first one I read from her. I read it in a day! It was impossible to put down!!! 4mo

My favourite Jewell book so far! A mystery about 2 teenage parents who disappear after a night out. A few different timelines but easy to follow. I did figure some of it out before the end but I was still gripped by the story. 4 ⭐️

This is another excellent book by Lisa Jewell. The story gripped me from the first page and I was hooked until the very end. A girl and her boyfriend go missing after a night out and the story is told in different timelines and it is woven together by what happened in the past and a search for them in the present. So many twists and turns and it came together perfectly. Loved this book.

I‘ve been looking forward to reading this one for a while- so I was thrilled when it won the vote for my book club! With multiple timelines and some surprising twists, I had a hard time putting this down! I wish the ending went a bit further out though- and I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else thought! Vivid characters, genuine shocks and great pacing- it‘s another solid read from Jewell! I can see why this was a #BOTM option!

I found this story entertaining & strongly identified w Kim who is devastated over the disappearance of her daughter- and nearly son in law- and has been thrust into raising her grandchild. ⬇️

bookandbedandtea ⬆️ It's told in three timelines & from three POVs, which were all quite distinct and easy to follow. I was caught up in finding out what happened to this couple but found the story bogged down in the middle. The resolution was a bit over the top and unbelievable but I was very glad for Kim to get the resolution she needed. 5mo
bookandbedandtea I did have issues with the character of Scarlett. We're told over and over how charismatic she is but I never found her compelling and it always seemed bizarre to me that so many people were so willing to be used by her. 5mo

Okay, I‘m giving Lisa Jewell one more try. I haven‘t been thrilled with her other two I‘ve taken on… it‘s been disappointing because they really sound so good.

I will say, so far so good for #TheNightSheDisappeared tho! It‘s getting juicy 😏

Forgot to post about my #DoubleSpin for November. I have yet to be blown away by a Lisa Jewell book. This one was just okay. The multiple timelines and points of view made the book a bit repetitive and caused it to drag at times. I thought Sophie‘s chapters were unnecessary and the ending wrapped up too quickly for my tastes. 3⭐️

Mehso-so

Fabulous audiobook narration, likeable protagonists, and an eerily realistic portrayal of how subtle emotional abuse in relationships can play out (with some heavy TWs; btw). Overall I enjoyed listening to this.

BUT, there is a but--and it's a big one for me (see comments that I've marked as spoiler, though maybe it isn't really spoiler-ish). Enough that I can't give this a pick, just a so-so.

erank58 Authors--can we PLEASE drop the "chaotic, sex-crazed and somewhat devious bisexual woman" trope? And then making a point to physically label this person "bisexual", as if that "explains" her toxic motivations? It's really getting old ? probably one of the worst things for me when it comes to my reading! 7mo
ravenlee Ugh, the “bisexual must mean ravenous for sex of any type and indiscriminate in lovers” thing. I‘d hoped that was a thing of the past, but apparently it‘s still around. I remember people in college 20 years ago claiming bisexuals are just greedy. I‘m not even bi and always seemed to be the only one who found that offensive. 7mo
erank58 @ravenlee I think it's definitely gotten better. Over the past few years alone I've been seeing more and more positive and affirming bi/pan rep in books, particulalry in YAs! Much more than when I was growing up and could have benefitted from seeing that rep, at least. But adult lit seems to still be way behind, and I don't really get why. Obviously we still have a long way to go! 7mo
ravenlee Agreed, there‘s a lot of good rep in YA. And there are some good adult romances I‘ve seen with (usually supporting but sometimes main) characters who are bisexual. But then I‘ve read some recent releases, like last two years, that still have the “his horrible ex who‘s bisexual and a big slut” as a gimmick. It‘s definitely time to move on. 7mo

Catching up my November reviews! I enjoyed this thriller even though I‘m not sure how I feel about its resolution. I have read a couple others by Lisa Jewell and they‘re entertaining. I listened to the audiobook, narrated by Joanne Froggatt (Anna on Downton Abbey). She is a great narrator — especially with dialogue— and she elevated the story.

Not as successful as I wanted to be, but it‘s science fair season. Next month will be a little slow too as I grade all their essays. 😵 I had a lot of 4 stars, but my 5 stars were “The Night She Disappeared” and “Dog Man- The Tale of Two Kittens”

Bookwormjillk After helping my 8th grader struggle through science fair season I can‘t imagine dealing with a whole class of that. Good luck with December! 7mo
Roary47 @Bookwormjillk yes, very challenging every year. This year I made a “test” to have them show me the scientific method for those who didn‘t because it‘s their final. (High schoolers) 7mo

I loved this book.

a young woman and her boyfriend disappear after partying with a new college friend

One year later, a writer moves into a cottage Known locally as the Dark Place, the dense forest is the writer‘s favorite area for long walks and it‘s on one such walk that she stumbles upon a mysterious note that simply reads, “DIG HERE.”

Could this be a clue towards what has happened to the missing young couple?

Kept me guessing. Still not sure if I missed things on the initial read or if there really were a couple of loose ends to be tied up at the end, but it was suspenseful enough for a light read.

This was the only actual book I brought with me on my vacation (which I‘m very proud of myself for)! I read 130 pages on the plane ride home and finished it last night. I wasn‘t sure where the story was going or how it was going to end. The dual timelines were a bit confusing because they were only a year off. So I did have to flip back and forth a bit to confirm. Other than that, I really love Lisa Jewell and her mysteries!

A twisty plot that goes back and forth between two timeline. One is in the present when baby Noah‘s parents have disappeared and the past which explains what really happened. Tallula is a very passive, insecure woman who became pregnant in high school. She doesn‘t love the father, Zach. Her life changes when she meets the charming, enigmatic, exciting Scarlett. I honestly was confused by the last page though.

My feelings about this book are complicated. It‘s a riveting read about the mystery surrounding two teenagers who go missing after a romantic night out. The book bounces back-n-forth bw their last days and after their disappearance. OTOH, I wasn‘t thrilled with how the 🏳️‍🌈 relationship in this book was represented. I won‘t say more in case you want to read the book. Overall, the 📕kept me engaged. CW: domestic violence, kidnapping

#TheNightSheDisappeared #LisaJewell #OutstandingOctober #BookSpinBingo

A young woman and her boyfriend disappear after partying at the massive country estate of a new college friend. One year later, a writer moves into a cottage that border the same estate. During a walk, the artist stumbles upon a mysterious note that simply reads, DIG HERE. Could this be a clue towards what has happened to the missing young couple?

EadieB And what exactly is buried in this haunted ground? This was a twisty work of suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat until the final page. It switches timelines from present day 2018 and 2017 before the disappearances. The ending was a complete surprise that I did not expect. If you enjoy cold cases of family trauma with dark secrets then you will enjoy this one. I would say that this is Lisa Jewell's best book to date. 8mo

🎧 Tallulah is a 19 year old with a baby, she lives at home with her mom & the baby‘s father. One night Lula leaves her son with her mom to go on a date with the baby‘s father & they never return.

As the mystery unfolds so do multiple POV‘s & timelines.

While I felt I‘d read a story similar to this recently which caused me to guess the implausible ending early on, I kept reading .

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 👇🏻👇🏻

Twainy We get a timeline which is showing Lula‘s POV moving forward from 2017 until her end in the story where the timelines collide.

A year after Lula‘s missing person‘s case goes cold an author of cozy mysteries (Sophie) moves into a cottage with her boyfriend next to the estate where Lula attended school. Her timeline is 2019 & has her solving a mystery vs writing one. 👇🏻
(edited) 8mo
Twainy Kim, Lula‘s mom & the grandma watching the baby has a POV as well as Zach, the baby‘s daddy which add to the other POVs.

You get a full history of the people involved through the unlikely ending which felt a bit deus ex machina. STILL it was entertaining & I enjoyed it.

Sometimes you just need a big beast of a thriller to lose yourself in and Lisa Jewell always delivers for me. The Night She Disappeared is perfectly undemanding. It‘s long enough and twisty enough to get lost in, and at the same time isn‘t too complicated to follow. I enjoyed lots of the devices used to frame this narrative and was reminded how much I enjoy a crime novel that isn‘t American.
