Mini Review: Invisible Girl by Lisa Jewell

Invisible Girl by Lisa Jewell


As a fan of Lisa Jewell's writing, I always look forward to a new book by her. Lately, I've been in a bit of a mystery slump, not many of them really holding my attention or feeling especially original, so I had high hopes this one might do the trick. While it wasn't my favorite by the author, it was entertaining and brought in certain elements that make Jewell's crime fiction stand out as more thoughtful than your typical psychological thriller. I liked the multiple POVs, and that she makes her characters feel real and multi-dimensional, not flat caricatures. That being said, I didn't really connect with with any of them to the point that I would consider this book especially memorable. That may be because I read a lot in this genre, but it may also just be because this wasn't quite Jewell's best. I liked it, was engaged and curious how it would end, but I did guess quite a few of the twists and turns along the way. Overall, an entertaining mystery I would recommend to fans of her previous books or authors like Ruth Ware or Lucy Foley.
