Reviews

"You'll be desperate to find out what messed this family up so badly."--Sophie Kinsella, author of Shopaholic to the Stars
"A gorgeous, powerful, affecting tale of a family both ordinary and extraordinary. Lisa Jewell is a wonderful storyteller, and The House We Grew Up In grips you from the first page to the last. I'm afraid to say it made me neglect both my children and my husband. The Bird family might be dysfunctional, but I was strangely sorry to leave it."--Anna Maxted, author of Getting Over It and Running In Heels
Praise for The House We Grew Up In

"Clever, intelligent, and believable on a subject few of us really understand. Lorrie is one of the most vivid--and complex--characters I've read in years. Wonderful."--Jojo Moyes, author of Me Before You
Praise for The Third Wife

"Lisa Jewell presents us with yet another emotionally intelligent, brilliantly plotted and beautifully written examination of a very modern family that will keep you gripped to the end.... Take this to the beach, or indeed anywhere -- I promise you won't regret it." --Daily Mail (London)
"Jewell's last few novels have been a revelation--emotionally sophisticated and complex--and this latest, which gradually rewrites the history of a 'perfect' family, is a fine follow-up.... Taut pacing and complicated characters shape this rich examination of the modern family."--Kirkus Reviews
"Jewell excels at juggling multiple perspectives to slowly peel back the layers of supposed domestic bliss. Like Liane Moriarty, she manages the perfect blend of women's fiction and nail-biting suspense, throwing enough red herrings in the reader's path to keep the pages turning."--Booklist
"A great choice for readers seeking a mystery with a blended family twist."--Library Journal
"The Third Wife is a summer gem. The story is complex... the many characters well drawn.... Readers of Donna Tartt and Tana French will recognize Jewell's pacing for what it is: essential."--NY Journal of Books
"The Third Wife explores complicated family dynamics in a genuine way that is witty yet realistically nuanced."--Shelf Awareness
"Jewell cleverly frames the destruction of the Bird family ....an absolute page-turner."--Booklist
"...reminded us of Liane Moriarty's Big Little Lies."--Ft. Worth Star-Telegram
"...prose so beautiful that it glitters on the page. Lisa Jewell lays down piece after piece of mosaic, revealing the heart of the Bird family, filled in equal measure with love and loss. Unforgettable."--Jo-Ann Mapson, author of Solomon's Oak, Finding Casey, and Owen's Daughter
