Review: This is the second book from Lisa Jewell that I have read. I had high expectations on this novel since I loved Then She Was Gone. Lisa Jewell’s newest thriller follows a group of neighbors who live in this nice posh little area, but something isn’t right. The head school teacher, Tom Fitzwilliam, is loved and adored by everyone, but there are a few people who question his character. Overall, this was a mediocre book. The plot was intriguing, however, I wasn’t a fan of the writing style. The first half of the book was extremely slow. Some of the characters were outright irritating and I didn’t really care to know more about them. The ending was pretty good even though I felt like it was a bit predictable. I wouldn’t recommend reading this novel as there are so many other great thrillers out there.
