“You think you know what is happening until Jewell starts hitting you with curve balls. It was masterfully done and really kept me glued to my kindle.”
~ Under the Covers

Melville Heights is a good neighbourhood, populated by doctors, teachers and professionals. Or, at least it seems that way on the surface. But behind the polished veneer hides secrets and lies all of which culminate in a murder. But who is the victim and who is the murderer?

This is my first book by Lisa Jewell but the cover and the blurb hooked me into giving it a try. I am really glad I gave it a go, it had some great twists and turns that made it hard to put down. It was told from multiple characters perspective as they all observe what is happening on their street. Joey Mullin’s a young woman who has become obsessed with Tom Fitzwilliam an older married man on her street. Freddie Fitzwilliam, Tom’s son and a teenage voyeur who has dark suspicions about his father. Jenna Tripp, a teenage girl who attends the school for which Tom Fitzwilliam is the headmaster. Then it goes to transcripts of police interviews.

What I liked about this book was how the multiple perspectives all play on your assumptions. You start the book knowing someone has been murdered and then it goes back a few months and shows you the events that lead up to the murder. It’s up to the reader to come to their own conclusions. You think you know what is happening until Jewell starts hitting you with curve balls. It was masterfully done and really kept me glued to my kindle.

This isn’t a fast paced thriller, instead it slowly builds up a creepy and slightly paranoid atmosphere as your suspicions grow. I highly recommend for anyone looking for a good psychological mystery which keeps you guessing right until the very end.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
