    Daily Express
  • "She has departed from her usual chick lit and gone full tilt into a psycho thriller, but she’s lost none of her brilliance. Indeed, I think this is my favourite of hers so far… Deeply emotional and incredibly clever. Bravo"

    Mail Online
  • "Unnerving, and with a juicy reveal, this is rightly a modern classic"

    Grazia
  • "Jewell builds a gripping novel around a maze of dark secrets, a tautly wound psychological thriller in which the suspense builds slowly. Her storytelling is immaculate, hopping between past and present, and in and out of characters. It’s a tough read at times, but Jewell always keeps everything moving. The intrigue never flags as she pushed towards a redemptive resolution. As astute and emotionally charged read, riddled with creepiness. Fully recommended"

Lisa Jewell writes with such a keen eye for detail, so much heart and yet deviousness that I can’t wait to read what she comes up with next"
