Lisa Jewell has recently become my go-to for a suspense novel. Often referred to as a ‘beach read’ sometimes all you really want is something plot-driven so you can mindlessly turn pages and lose yourself in the story. This one is her latest and the subject matter is dark. It’s much darker than the others of hers I’ve read (I Found You and The House We Grew Up In), but fit the bill for what I was looking for–a nice creepy sinister story that was un-put-downable. Within the domestic suspense thriller genre, I think Jewell does a good job. This one was about a young girl who disappears. Years later her mother meets a man who has a daughter who looks exactly like her missing child…He seems nice, but is he actually dangerous and is this more than a coincidence?
Now with my guilty pleasure read out of the way, I’m ready for something with a bit more substance again! 🙂
