One of People’s, Glamour’s, and Buzzfeed’s Best Reads of Summer
“Jewell expertly builds suspense by piling up domestic misunderstandings and more plot twists than an SVU episode. It’s a page-turner for readers who like beach reads on the dark side.” —People
Imagine that you live on a picturesque communal garden square, an oasis in urban London where your children run free, in and out of other people’s houses. You’ve known your neighbors for years and you trust them. Implicitly. You think your children are safe. But are they really?
On a midsummer night, as a festive neighborhood party is taking place, preteen Pip discovers her thirteen-year-old sister Grace lying unconscious and bloody in a hidden corner of a lush rose garden. What really happened to her? And who is responsible?
“Full of suspense yet emotionally grounded…Fans of Liane Moriarty, Paula Hawkins, and Carla Buckley will adore this peek inside a gated community that truly takes care of its own, no matter the consequences.” —Booklist(starred review)

Ohhhh, I have heard so much about Lisa Jewell, but I have never read any of her books. I always thought they might be a bit tooo suspenseful? Like grisly? Is this the case? I don’t like to be creeped out or freaked out or grossed out . . . haha. I’ve been too chicken to read Girl on the Train, even though everyone raves about it. And of course now it’s a movie. Hmm. What do you think? Would I be able to read Lisa Jewell?
Oh wait, I think I’m thinking of someone else maybe? haha! Is there another Lisa … oh, Gardener maybe? Because I’ve read The House We Grew Up In, and I loved that!! Who am I thinking of?
LOL!! I have no idea haha!
Another terrific giveaway on here. Thanks, Carrie.
