The 'Genius' strikes again!,
By A Customer
This review is from: One-hit Wonder (Paperback)
I have just finished reading One-Hit Wonder after as promised by 'The Times' being in a 'sweaty, addicted reading frenzy' - all I can say is I've got a hell of a lot of sleep to catch up on!!! Lisa's third novel easily joins its Predecessors in being exceptionally well written and thoroughly enjobyable reading. From the moment I read the first line I was utterly hooked. If you can improve on two already brilliant novels - Lisa has done it - well done. I experienced every emotion - it takes a very talented writer to bring you to tears - tears so real you feel you're not really reading fiction at all. I must admit when I first started reading it I thought 'well this is fantastic but where will the romantic coupling come from' - I really thought the book was in the style of mystery fiction but to weave this wonderful romance slowly and carefully into it was an added treat. The suspense is held right until near the very end - which again is real talent - normally with many novels, whilst enjoyable, you invariably guess the outcome very early on. I'm a big fan of this so called 'chic-fic' but Lisa Jewell is surely amongst one of the most talented and unique... Keep up the good work and roll on novel number four!
