My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Wow. I picked this book up on Netgalley because I’ve read other books by Lisa Jewell and loved them (especially Vince and Joy. I adored that book). Alice is a generous, slightly flaky, woman who finds a man who has lost his memory sitting in the rain and gives him a place to stay. I liked that Alice’s family were sceptical and slightly scared. It wouldn’t have been realistic otherwise.
‘Frank’ can’t remember anything. He seems like a nice person, but he’s not sure that is. He may have done something terrible.
Lily in new to England and her new husband has disappeared.
There is a parallel story from 20 years before (dear god, were the 90’s twenty years ago?! Ugh. Now I feel old). There’s a deep sense of foreboding in that thread, right from the start.
For a large part of the book you’re sure which of the two men ended up being ‘Frank’. You want him to be good guy… but…
I really enjoyed this book. It was another one of those books that I had me trying to stir dinner with one hand, with the Kindle held in the other. Loved it.

I loved Vince and Joy and The Truth About Melody Browne (read while I was hormonal and pregnant – cried a lot). I’ve missed the others in between too!
I read Lisa Jewell’s first book which I think may have been back in the 90’s and it was so good but have somehow missed the others as they have come out! This sounds like a great read I will check it out.
