Bookreporter Talks to… Lisa Jewell 2021

Lisa Jewell, the New York Times bestselling author, talks to Carol Fitzgerald about her newest thriller, The Night She Disappeared, which is a Bookreporter Bets On selection.

As The Night She Disappeared opens, a young, suburban couple has been missing for a year. A mystery writer moves in near the estate where the disappearance took place and, on a walk one day, she comes across a note that reads, “Dig Here.” From that one clue, the unsolved case gets opened up again.

Lisa talks about her inspiration, where her writing of the story started, and how she unfolded the story from there. Lisa also shares how her looming deadline during the pandemic upended her writing routine. She shares a bit about her next book, which will be a sequel!
