A thriller that kept me guessing till the very end. Very twisty, dark, and unsettling. Sophie and her boyfriend move into the headmasters cottage at a boarding school where he just landed a job, and things are off on a great start. There is one weird thing though - a small sign with an arrow pointing in the dirt that says "dig here." When Sophie finally caves and digs it up - what she found is linked to a bizarre missing person case from one year prior. Nineteen year old Tallulah and her boyfriend went to the pub and then a friend's house and were never seen again. Her mother knows they would never run off - they have a baby at home, a baby they love! Told in alternating timelines - one from the year leading up to the disappearance and the other a year after the disappearance. So many dropped tid bits will have readers leaning one way and then the other. Impossible to put down! ( )

Lisa Jewell’s books synopses have often caught my interest, an appealing mix of psychological drama and mystery, but The Night She Disappeared is the first of her novels I have actually had the chance to read. My expectations were high…

Telling a story from multiple time points and switching character perspectives, a writing technique that builds tension and suspense by design, is one I always enjoy reading. Then pick a setting with multiple claustrophobic elements – small village, young motherhood, exclusive boarding school, and a luxurious historical house in the woods – insert an amateur sleuth (who is an author no less) and explore a highly topical issue such as ‘coercive control’ from multiple angles. Sounds like a recipe for success, right?

In The Night She Disappeared Jewell cultivates psychological intrigue with her multiple character viewpoint narrative and offers readers more than one empathetic character and a story told in highly accessible prose. However, this novel is not without its weaknesses. Continue reading >> https://www.bookloverbookreviews.com/2021/09/the-night-she-disappeared-by-lisa-j... ( )

True to what we’ve seen from Lisa Unger before, she’s able to create mood and tenseness in this new book about a young woman and her boyfriend who disappear and leave the grandmother caring for their baby son. Tallulah and her boyfriend live with Tallulah’s mother in an English village. Tallulah’s strange, wealthy friend is involved, but it takes not only the policework but the sleuthing of Tallulah’s mother and a new resident, a mystery writer, to discover the truth, which is going to be a totally unexpected ending.

I've enjoyed all of Lisa Jewell's previous books, but her latest - The Night She Disappeared - is a new favorite!
Tallulah and her boyfriend Zack disappear one night without a trace. Tallulah's mother Kim knows her daughter would never abandon her wee son. But a year passes and the police are no closer to an answer. That changes when a new headmaster and his girlfriend Sophie, a cozy mystery writer move into the village. When she finds a sign saying 'Dig Here" in her back garden, Sophie does. And the first clue to what might have happened is found...

Jewell tells the tale in three timelines with multiple points of view. I was hooked as every chapter gives us more hints to the past, more information in the present and a cold inkling as to what might have transpired.

Jewel gives us well drawn protagonists in grieving parent Kim and amateur detective Sophie. These characters are imbued with personal storylines as well, quite believable in their relationships, doubts, loss and more. Jewell ekes out the story of Tallulah before she disappeared and the reader can see what's coming as her narrative progresses. (Don't peek ahead though! I wasn't entirely right in my guess) There are plenty of supporting characters and each and every one of them seems to have trouble with the truth. Who should we believe?

I really enjoyed Sophie's sleuthing skills. I always wanted to grow up and become Nancy Drew, so mysteries are favorite genre. And Jewell has written a great one - the plotting is excellent, the settings are atmospheric (love the creepy mansion in the woods) and the varying timelines and voices really worked for me. And kept me up late as I really needed to know what (or who) happened to Tallulah. A great page turner. ( )

Tallulah is a teenage mother trying to do everything. She is a mother, a student, a girlfriend and a daughter. However, her boyfriend Zach is a little possessive. So when Tallulah has an opportunity to slip off and be with one of her friends at her home, The Dark Place, she does, every chance she gets.

When she and Zach both disappear on the same evening and never return for their young child, Kim, Tallulah’s mother is distraught. Kim turns the whole town upside down looking for this young couple. But, no such luck! However, things change when a mystery writer, Sophie, moves into the neighborhood.

Well! Lisa Jewell has done it again. The strange house called the Dark Place…that is all it took to reel me in! Add in secret passages and the weird history and I was hooked. But! That is not all that makes this thriller amazing…these characters…wow! I swear, I wanted so badly to come through these pages and shake some sense into Tallulah. Then there is Zach! I wanted to beat his butt for they way he manipulated Tallulah.

But…the final straw was the twist at the end! Whoever reads a book and skips to the end….DON’T DO IT! It will ruin the whole book for you!

Need a weird and creepy thriller….YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS ONE! Grab your copy today!

I received this novel from the publisher for a honest opinion. ( )
