Waiting on Wednesday...The Girls- Lisa Jewell

I love Lisa Jewell.  She writes the most vivid characters out there who always capture my heart.  Add to that a magical way with words that few authors can rival, and that is why, this week The Girls is my choice for Waiting on Wednesday, the weekly meme thought up by Breaking the Spine.
 I've loved watching Lisa's writing develop over many years now, and this sounds like a darker, more psychological novel than her previous releases.  I can't wait to read it!
The Blurb

Dark secrets, a devastating mystery and the games people play: the gripping new novel from the bestselling author of The House We Grew Up In and The Third Wife.

You live on a picturesque communal garden square, an oasis in urban London where your children run free, in and out of other people’s houses.

You’ve known your neighbours for years and you trust them. Implicitly.

You think your children are safe.

But are they really?

Midsummer night: a thirteen-year-old girl is found unconscious in a dark corner of the garden square. What really happened to her? And who is responsible?

Utterly believable characters, a gripping story and a dark secret buried at its core: this is Lisa Jewell at her heart-stopping best. 

The Girls is released on 2nd July 2015, published by Century.  Ebook and hardback preorders are now being taken.
