“The Girls in the Garden” by Lisa Jewell

★★★★☆ New release Tuesday!

One night, after the neighborhood summer party ends, Grace Wild is missing. When Pip, Grace’s younger sister, finds her, she is unconscious in an alley with her clothes disheveled.

The characters in this book live in a very idyllic community. Their houses all back up to a communal park that is private to the residents. The park is thought of as a safe space, where children play wp-1454223691801.pngand make friends and grow.

THE GIRLS IN THE GARDEN flashes between narrator throughout the story: Grace’s mom, Clare; Pip; the eldest and wisest resident of the park, Rhea; the neighborhood mom who homeschools her three unique children, Adele; later, Grace.

Lisa Jewell sure knows how to lead a reader to several false leads. I was keeping a list in my head of who I suspected attacked Grace, but each time I thought I was close to right, the book took another unexpected turn.

THE GIRLS IN THE GARDEN is a cozy, creepy mystery, caught in a private backyard park of London. Cliques of young teenagers acting like teenagers, unsolved mysteries, and colorful and crazy characters make this a great summer read!

Purchase the book here.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
