A night out in the town… a possible engagement.
Zach has been diligently saving his money and finally has enough to take his girlfriend, mother of his child, Tallulah out for a much-deserved romantic dinner.
But when the young lovers vanish without a trace, only Tallulah’s mother fears something horrible has happened.
Told in two timelines.
2017 – Tallulah is a 19-year-old new mother, just discovering what she truly wants in life. Specifically, whether that includes the father of her baby or not.
2019 – Sophie moves in with her boyfriend after he lands a job at a boarding school. Sophie is a mystery writer who now finds herself quickly drawn into a mystery of her own.
I usually love dual timelines but I found myself a bit confused, as the difference was a mere 2 years.
I did, enjoy Tallulah’s character. Her dedication and love for her child, while struggling with the desire to live the life of a carefree young adult.
I am a huge fan of this author and already looking forward to her next release.
A buddy read with Susanne.

Creepy and Mysterious.
2017: The night teenage mum Tallulah and her boyfriend Zach disappear, no one can find any clue as to what happened to them, not their parents, or the police. Tallulah’s mum Kim was left to care for Tallulah’s son when it happened and now she is his primary caregiver. All Kim wants are answers and there are none to be had.
Desperate, Kim will stop at nothing to find her daughter.
2019: When Sophie moves to the area with her boyfriend who is headteacher at the boarding school where one of the students went missing a little over a year ago, she can’t help but begin researching what happened. She is after all a novelist, and curiosity always gets the better of her. Once clues begin appearing, Sophie is of course, all in.
A novel that alternates between timelines with each chapter, your pulse pounds as you try to unravel the mystery of what happened to Tallulah and her boyfriend on that fateful night.
A well-done mystery/suspense by the fabulous Lisa Jewell, The Night She Disappeared was both captivating and intriguing and I highly recommend it. I quite enjoyed it, though not as much as some of Lisa Jewell’s prior novels, simply because I admit to being a bit befuddled by the ending. I still don’t quite get it but haven’t since gotten over it…ha!
A buddy read with Kaceey.

Nice reviews. So glad you liked this one, although not as much as others. I’ve seen reviews for this book that are similar. Hopefully her next book is better.
Well said Wendy! This one was good, but didn’t quite wow. I think it was just the ending that left Kaceey and I scratching our heads, lol. 🙂
