I've listened to several Lisa Jewell audiobooks while walking which I really enjoy. The storyline twists and turns and the characters are multidimensional. Invisible Girl features a teenager named Sapphire who goes missing. Owen Pick, a quiet man in his 30s who has just been let go from his job due to inappropriate sexual misconduct, is accused of having something to do with the missing girl. ( )

I had to laugh when Jewell explained that she basically wants NO interference when she writes a book---it's ALL her efforts ---Me, Myself and I---but she is so successful in her method! So many interesting characters in this book and the story subject matter itself is so much a part of our current lives---it keeps coming back to knock us in our heads---sadly!!! ( )

Thank You to NetGalley and Random House UK, Cornerstone for this ARC!!

When Saffyre Maddox was ten something terrible happened and she's carried the pain of it around with her ever since. Roan Fours, her therapist, who she thought was going to heal her didn't,and now she follows him like an invisible girl, learning his secrets.

Owen Pick is invisible too. He's thirty-three years old and he's never had a girlfriend, he's never even had a friend.

But when Saffyre Maddox disappears from opposite his house on Valentine's night, and cases of women being sexually assaulted in the area arise, suddenly the whole world is looking at him. Accusing him and holding him responsible because he seems like the perfect type.

But then the questions arise... Is he really responsible? or is he just misunderstood? If he is innocent who is the culprit? And where is Saffyre?

This a very well written book which draws you in right from the first page with enough twists and secrets to keep you hooked on right till the end. And just at the very end you receive that final twist in the tale that's absolutely mind blowing!

I truly loved this book. It focuses the social injustice on how sometimes we just judge a person by his looks and then make an assumption which might not necessary be true.

Overall a fantastic psychological mystery which packs a punch. Highly recommended!!! ( )

This was a hard one for me to even finish. I really didn't think the story was as grabbing as some of her other books. I became disillusioned with all of the characters after the first 3 chapters and just could never give the much thought throughout the remainder. It was like watching an accident going somewhere to happen. I know this author has and can do much better so will wait for the next one ( )

Invisible Girl by Lisa Jewell is a 2020 Atria publication.

Clever and suspenseful!

Three first person voices narrate this enthralling story which examines the various devices humans employ to hide their innermost secrets, darkest pain, obsessions, or deepest character flaws, from society, from family and friends, and maybe even from themselves.

Saffyre Maddox, in treatment for self-harm, is released by her therapist, Roan Fours, before she’s ready. This leads her to stalk him and spy on his family.

Meanwhile, Cate Fours, Roan’s wife, acquired an uneasy feeling about her neighbor, Owen Pick, after several sexual assaults were reported in the area, and her daughter thinks Owen may have been following her home one night, with dark intentions.

Owen, a virgin, living with his aunt, has been let go from his job after being reported for sexual impropriety with his female students. He finds a sympathetic ear after joining an online chat group of ‘incels’.

When Saffyre disappears, key evidence leads investigators to Owen, who then becomes an obvious person of interest...

This is another winner for Lisa Jewell!! The story held my rapt attention from start to finish! The exploration of the darker corners of the internet was chilling. Although, the atmosphere was not as heavy as Jewell’s previous novels, I thought the story was extremely creepy!

I was a tiny bit concerned about the ending after reading a few editorial reviews for this book. I must disagree with the critics in this case.

Okay, sure, in a perfect world, it would end differently- but that’s what made Jewell’s decision so provocative. I thought it was fitting to leave the reader feeling unsettled.

As to the suggestion the conclusion may be weak-as seasoned crime reader- I guess I must be losing my touch, because I closed the book with a definite shiver running down my spine!!

Fans of domestic and psychological thrillers will enjoy this one!
