About this deal

How the author balances both stories and interweaves them into an amazingly realistic and beautiful conclusion can only be described in a word as brilliant. Jewell’s books last year and to say I’m now a fan would be as big of an understatement as ever written.

The police’s investigation never turned up any clues to what happened to her, but believe she ran away.Some suspension of disbelief may be necessary, but it didn’t really bother me, I just enjoyed what I found to be a unique and absorbing story. I knew Lisa Jewell will never disappoint me and I’m happy to finally read this moving, exciting, riveting page turner. Although parts of the story are a little bizarre (Jewell says this herself in the Acknowledgements), she makes it work.

I really find myself enamored with Jewell's characters, plots, and settings, so much that I've added ten of her other books to my TBR and hope to read a few more later this year. The amount of courage and character she showed during the challenging experiences will make us love her more.Laurel's daughter in law, Blue, spouts New Age mumbo jumbo about how she didn't like Floyd when she met him because he has a bad aura or some crap like that. If you are the publisher or author and feel that they do not properly reflect the range of media opinion now available, send us a message with the mainstream reviews that you would like to see added. Maybe, but the sasquatches whom the volcano displaced contributed to the statistics, too, if only out of self-defense. There were a few minor occurrences I didn’t see coming, but none of them were important enough to the story that they made any kind of difference.

But, finally, after years of just going through the motions of life, Laurel meets Floyd, a single dad with a young daughter named Poppy. I received a ARC of this novel from the publisher through Edelweiss, thank you, will post to public media upon publication. Or maybe I’m just jaundiced by the idea of a perfect man showing up at the table next to an older divorced woman.

Her multilayered characters are sheer perfection, and even the most astute thriller reader won't see where everything is going until the final threads are unknotted.
