Praise for Then She Was Gone:
"If you were the first of your friends to read Girl On The Train, and have read Gone Girl more times than you can remember, then here is your summer read. A thriller about a 15-year-old girl who has vanished and a mother who won't give up hope. A perfect Pimm's companion."--C.L. Taylor, bestselling author "The Sun (UK)"
"Jewell teases out her twisty plot at just the right pace, leaving readers on the edge of their seats. There will surely be comparisons to novels such as Emma Donoghue's Room (2010) as well as all of the "Girl" thrillers, but Jewell's latest really isn't at all derivative. 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. Those few who do guess early won't mind, as the pace and prose will keep them hooked."-- "Booklist (starred review)"
"More than a whiff of The Lovely Bones wafts through this haunting domestic noir from bestseller Jewell...Skillfully told by several narrators, Jewell's gripping novel is an emotionally resonant story of loss, grief, and renewal." -- "Publishers Weekly"
"Smart and engrossing."--C.L. Taylor, bestselling author "Sunday Mirror (UK)"
"Then She Was Gone is a riveting thriller."-- "PopSugar"
"A dark, compulsive psychological thriller, yet one which is also uplifting and tender. I absolutely loved Then She Was Gone." --C.L. Taylor, bestselling author "Rachel Rhys, author of Dangerous Crossing"
"For thriller readers, Jewell's latest will not disappoint. Sharply written with twists and turns, it will please fans of Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train, or Luckiest Girl Alive."-- "Library Journal"
"In addition to being a complex and genuinely suspenseful narrative, Then She Was Gone is a rich study of the ways in which people respond to grief and how past trauma can continue to shape their decision-making and relationships years or decades later. Readers will be truly affected by Ellie's real story once it's revealed--and they'll be satisfied by the hopeful yet bittersweet ending. Jewell demonstrates once again that she has what it takes to genuinely shock, surprise and move her readers."-- "Book Reporter"
"Jewell gets more riveting and twisty with every book she writes. Completely absorbing, fast-paced, well-written and with a shocking ending that will keep readers guessing, Then She Was Gone is a nearly pitch-perfect thriller. Fans of Gillian Flynn, Paula Hawkins and Ruth Ware are sure to adore this haunting novel."-- "Shelf Awareness"
"Jewell has departed from chick lit and gone full tilt into a psycho thriller, but she's lost none of her brilliance... Deeply emotional and incredibly clever. Bravo."--C.L. Taylor, bestselling author "Mail Online"
"Lisa Jewell is a brilliant storyteller, creating suspenseful yet believable novels time and again. I Found You is no exception--filled with intriguing characters connected in startling ways. Quickly paced yet delicately nuanced, this novel is sure to appeal to fans of Big Little Lies and The Woman in Cabin 10."--C.L. Taylor, bestselling author "Shelf Awareness (starred review)"
"What begins as a story about the mother of a missing girl starting a new relationship as she comes terms with her grief morphs into a gripping, disturbing and utterly fascinating tale about what really happened to young Ellie Mack. I've been a Lisa Jewell fan for a long time and in this book, as in all her others, she deftly weaves a compelling plot with an emotional depth that leaves you gasping. In Then She Was Gone she has created a book that is dark and claustrophobic but also heartfelt and moving. Then She Was Gone packs a huge emotional punch that will leave you winded. I loved it."--C.L. Taylor, bestselling author "Book Reporter"
