None of This is True

The addictive new thriller by NYT Bestselling author Lisa Jewell.

If you've ever been on a rollercoaster, you know that feeling that comes with the initial ascent? The slow climb that makes your heart pound and adrenaline rise, and then that little pause right at the top that has you anticipating the big drop. That is how this book made me feel. Jewell is a compelling storyteller who knows how to build tension and suspense and sustain it throughout the whole book. She paces this perfectly to keep you anticipating all the drops. I was off balance, uneasy, and questioning everything the entire time—and I freakin loved it! What a wild ride!

My advice is to go in blind if you can. This is dark, twisty, unsettling, creepy, and hard to put down. I am nursing a book hangover and still trying to sort through all the layers of dysfunction and deception. I don't want to spoil anything or say too much, but Josie, in particular, is a complex character that I won't soon forget. If you are a Lisa Jewell fan, the format of this is different from her other books, but it is perfectly suited to the story she is telling here and gripping right from the start.

Highly recommended to anyone looking for an outstanding thriller. Add this one to your tbr, then buckle up!

Thank you to NetGalley, Atria Books, and Lisa Jewell for the opportunity to review this ARC.
