By Lisa Jewell
Rating: 5/5 Stairs
I’ve read several books by Lisa Jewell, and this latest thriller does not disappoint. Libby has just turned 25 and is now old enough to inherit the trust left to her by her birth parents. Along with this inheritance, she can finally learn where she came from before being adopted as a baby.
Told from three different perspectives, Ms. Jewell guides the reader slowly through the events leading up to the death of Libby’s parents, while the three narrators current lives move closer and closer to converging. While I was a little confused in the beginning with the multiple point of views (one being in the past), I was quickly drawn in. I wanted to learn Libby’s roots just as much as she did, and the creepy tone of the past narration just made the pages fly by.
Part domestic noir, part family saga. A great thriller.
