But as the recording sessions go deeper and deeper into the truth of Josie’s life, Alix soon realizes that Josie is not as ordinary as she appears. I genuinely did not engage with her very much as character when I was writing the first novel, especially compared to writing Lucy and Henry’s scenes which I found utterly consuming.

Michael went from being a caring and considerate man and husband to a controlling and verbally abusive husband.

It pains me to rate a Lisa Jewell novel this low but there is absolutely nothing about this book I feel good about. It’s gradually revealed how some of the characters are intertwined and the common theme between these stories. The phone slipped from her hand onto the floor and she grabbed it up again, staring at the number with wide eyes, adrenaline charging through her even though it was barely seven in the morning. Who was Michael, why did he die, and how was he connected to the Lambs and their horrific murder-suicide pact thirty years before?

Lisa is a number one New York Times and Sunday Times author who has sold over ten million books worldwide and been published in over twenty-five languages. Of course it is, we still have some of the weird characters from the first book, going strong, and doing all their creepy things to other people.I wasn't a huge fan of the first one in this series and am left feeling even more than a tad disappointed in this one. They even plan a family reunion but Lucy finds out Phin already hit the road as soon as he found out their intention.

As other characters in the book point out, he is certainly a twisted, messed up person, but I enjoyed reading about him, getting his perspective and more glimpses inside his head. It was such a great book written with different timelines so you go back and forth in time quite a lot to different characters.Toward the end of the novel, Henry “recalibrates” Birdie’s murder just as he reimagined his parents’ murder and his own identity many years ago.

Since then she has published another twenty-one novels, most lately a number of dark psychological thrillers, including Then She Was Gone , The Family Upstairs and None of This is True. Yes, we have a new character, Rachel, Lucy’s ex-husband Michael’s second wife, whose perspective is shared as part of the narrative and is of absolutely no consequence except to serve as a filler for what is overall a weak and underdeveloped story. I've been a fan of Jewell's for a long time, but her last two books just haven't been all that great for me.A: I wrote this sequel in an effort to comprehensively complete the stories of all of the characters from both books. We also see how deep the relationship is between Lucy and Henry, how they work within their damaged psyches to be there for one another. Libby was the archetypal ‘good girl’, simple and uncomplicated, and I did not think there was any room for any more development of her character.
