Your views on both of them undergo several U-turns via the plot revelations which makes for fascinating and at times, horrifying reading. The Netflix show ABOUT the podcast is cleverly and neatly interspersed into the narrative, and I kid you not, every time one of these sections popped up, I could almost SEE the drama unfolding before me. Overall, it’s one of the stories that stay with you for years, still giving you goosebumps at each time you remember the characters and main events. Then the narrative jumps around between Alix and Josie’s “present day” perspectives, as well as clips from the Netflix documentary and Alix’s eventual podcast. This is slightly more character driven than some of Lisa Jewell’s other books, and that really comes out when Josie is recording episodes of the podcast.

Alix begins to doubt some parts of Josie’s revelations when she talks to people who know her and have interacted with her in the past. But then I thought it was pretty clear from the off she was just a manipulator obsessed with her own victim complex, and that Alix is going to lift her up into a new life.You know that there is something really malevolent there, but what you do not know is what she is actually capable of, and the extent of the mysteries surrounding her.

She loves that Nathan thinks she’s pretty, but she also wishes that Nathan could see the beauty in less conventionally attractive women too. It's a testament to the author's skill in creating a narrative that keeps readers on the edge of their seats. There is also some clever writing on show, as some seemingly harmless things are mentioned early on which become important later.

As the birthday celebrations get underway, a chance encounter between Josie and Alix reveals they not only share the same birth date, but they were also born in the same hospital, on the same day, and went to the same school. In walks a blonde, well dressed, attractive ‘Birthday Queen’ and this proves to be podcaster Alix Summer with a big crowd including husband Nathan. she takes the most universal observation and tosses it in very lightly at the end of a funny sentence—and it truly takes my breath away. What details from Erin and Roxy’s stories about their childhoods and more recent events shocked you the most? Slowly she starts to realise that Josie has been hiding some very dark secrets, and before she knows it, Josie has inveigled her way into Alix’s life—and into her home.

Rather than a plot device, it felt like an evocative and intriguing way to leave a tiny trail of breadcrumbs throughout the story to keep you dying for more detail, more insight, and that next provocative interview. As Alix digs deeper into Josie’s life and her secrets trickle out, a much more troubling picture emerges. It was actually a relatively late addition to the book, when I realized that the tension was building in an incredibly quiet and slow burn way and I realized my readers would need something to make them fear for the outcome, and I suddenly pictured Josie’s neighbor sitting on a chair in a TV studio talking about her impressions of Josie and Walter and realized that that was the way to do it.As the podcast continues, some very disturbing facts begin to reveal themselves, and Alix realises that she’s made a big mistake! Her novels have sold over 10 million copies internationally, and her work has also been translated into twenty-nine languages.
