  • Intense read

    In 2017, 19 year old Tallulah leaves her baby at home with her mum, Kim, for a date night with baby Noah’s father, Zach. Neither come home. In 2018, Sophie, a novelist, only met Shaun 6 months ago, but when he is offered a job in the country she goes with him, giving up her life and home. She can’t seem to settle but finds herself becoming intrigued by the story of the two teenagers who disappeared. Especially when she decides to do as the note nailed to the fence says - Dig here! What she finds leads her further along the trail. This story is told from several perspectives and times. The tension builds up at quite a pace, as we are pulled further into the story with each snippet of information that comes to light, changing the readers mind about the characters and their motives. Sophie almost becomes her alter ego from her detective series of novels, chasing clues, researching background and generally investigating the mystery as it unfolds. As the background to the disappearance is laid out for the reader, things become darker and more intense. Thoroughly enjoyable read. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read and review this book.

  • Just Brilliant!

    This wicked psychological thriller from one of my favourite authors, Lisa Jewell, is a cold case. It is 2017 and one summers night, a nineteen-year-old and her boyfriend, Tallulah and Zach, disappear. They were last seen going into the woods and had been at a party of a new college friend. Moving on to 2019 and Sophie Beck, a writer, is taking a stroll in the "Dark Woods". Sophie is new to the area and has just moved into a cottage near the boarding school where her boyfriend. Shaun Gray is the headteacher. On her walk, Sophie spies a note that says "Dig Here". The story is told in several different timelines and from several perspectives which worked very well for me. The narrative flows seamlessly between the time periods and all the while the tension is on the upwards ratchet. Lisa Jewell's plotting is superb as I fully expected it to be and in The Night She Disappeared, there is a plentiful supply of substories to prevent things becoming stale. The author is an expert at encouraging the reader to get to know the characters to become fully invested in the outcome and here, I certainly was! A brilliant, suspenseful, atmospheric tale that I'm sure will be well received by many. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Random House/ Century via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • Spine chilling

    As you’d expect from Lisa Jewell this is a creepy mystery with solid characters and plenty of surprises. Sophie moves into the headmasters cottage of a private school, she finds herself involved in a local mystery of a missing teenage couple due to discovering a buried clue. She’s a mystery writer and this real life mystery doesn’t fail to engage her. In amongst her chapters we have flashbacks to the time Tallulah disappeared and the months before that when she’s struggling with her relationship with her boyfriend, who she is only still with due to them having a son, and her confusing feelings for the enigmatic Scarlett. There’s so many suspicious characters in this it’s hard to know what to think and the outcome is spine-chilling brilliant read.
