None of This Is True by Lisa Jewell Book Summary



From the #1 New York Times bestselling author known for her “superb pacing, twisted characters, and captivating prose” (BuzzFeed), Lisa Jewell returns with a scintillating new psychological thriller about a woman who finds herself the subject of her own popular true crime podcast.

Celebrating her forty-fifth birthday at her local pub, popular podcaster Alix Summer crosses paths with an unassuming woman called Josie Fair. Josie, it turns out, is also celebrating her forty-fifth birthday. They are, in fact, birthday twins.

A few days later, Alix and Josie bump into each other again, this time outside Alix’s children’s school. Josie has been listening to Alix’s podcasts and thinks she might be an interesting subject for her series. She is, she tells Alix, on the cusp of great changes in her life.

Josie’s life appears to be strange and complicated, and although Alix finds her unsettling, she can’t quite resist the temptation to keep making the podcast. Slowly she starts to realize 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.

But, as quickly as she arrived, Josie disappears. Only then does Alix discover that Josie has left a terrible and terrifying legacy in her wake, and that Alix has become the subject of her own true crime podcast, with her life and her family’s lives under mortal threat.

Who is Josie Fair? And what has she done?

Twist till the end. Absolutely incredible! I haven’t been so emotionally involved in a book in so long. Definitely recommend for complex family relationships and narrative.


Hard to put down. Gripping tale that was a quick read for me as I couldn’t put it down. Very well written and fascinating. Riveting from beginning to end. Well crafted.


Gripping story. Couldn’t put the book down. Great details and definitely a page turner.


5-stars. Incredible book


Twisty. I really enjoyed each twist and plot turn.


Best one yet…. Genuinely uncomfortable, fidgety, and enthralled all at one time: I’m waiting for the real Netflix production.


Good read. Very suspenseful, however some let’s dragged on.


My Favorite Lisa Jewell Thus Far!!!. I could not put this book down. I was gripped from page 1. When I thought I could predict what would unravel, I was taken on a complete roller coaster ride. This book is a must for all Jewell fans and fans of mystery. Jewell does not disappoint!!


Omg. A complete roller coaster that still has me questioning after completing. Really felt like I was watching a movie!!


None of this is True. 3/5 stars. Fast, unique read. Wouldn’t recommend it. Hal R

Great story. Couldn’t put it down

Must read- couldn’t stop!. Fantastic! Read it in one day. Dark with lots of turns- best book I’ve read in a long time.

Intriguing Characters. The author does a great job building the characters in this novel. You want to hate Josie while at the same time you have such pity for her.


Great read . What a crazy woman .I know someone like her. Liz32905

None of this is true. Well, I cannot brag about it enough…..the thriller aspect about it is unbelievable…. The twists and turns around every corner on every page all the way up to the very very end is fantastic.! I would have to give it a MUST read for sure. 👍

Ashlie OSU

Gripping and exciting read. Very exciting read with disturbing parts along the way. Held my attention to where I couldn’t put the book down at times.


Wow. I genuinely could not put it down. I had to find out how the story unfolded. I actually read it in less than 24 hours.


Worth Reading!! Couldn’t put it down!. Would absolutely love it if Netflix would actually make a documentary!!


Superbulous!!. I could not read this fast enough! Such a great and smooth read. Loved it…..


I wish I didn’t bother reading this book. So weird and stupid.. I could not stand this book. Do not recommend. Bad plot, no likeable characters, horrible ending. Bleh.


Predictable format, weak ending. The first half of the novel is interesting with its introduction of characters, nice detailed descriptions, insight into emotional states, but once mid plot twist takes place - it all kind of falls apart. Predictable, lacking in depth and missing final cliffhanger. It was just OK.


Very slow. Some said they couldn’t put it down. I found it extremely boring and finally quit trying about chapter 7.


Amazing. Fantastic to the very end.


Too drawn out! Hated this book. I could not wait for this book to get over with. I wanted to pull my hair out. Worst book! Too long! Kept saying the same thing over and over!!! Thumbs down for me.


Great book!. Excellent book! Kept me guessing til the end. I’m hoping there’s a book 2 in the future cuz this kinda left me hangin!!


Outstanding!. The best novel I read this year. Jewell has simply outdone herself. Can’t imagine how she came up with storyline. The Characters are creepy and deliciously scary. You won’t regret reading this one!


Great book but ending fell flat. I enjoyed reading this book and enjoyed the suspense, but i felt like the ending didn’t do the book justice. I would’ve liked to see more exploration into Josie’s character, and more of her POV in part 4. This as well as answers to some of the mysteries that were never revisited (ex: the phone case)


Wow! Speechless. This one had me HOOKED! Lisa Jewell is always outstanding with her novels. This book is one of the longer books I’ve read and I still finished in 3 days. I was on the edge of my seat wanting more and more, eager to see what was going to happen next. I highly recommend reading this book, don’t question it, just do it. You won’t regret

Lore Palli

Engrossing until…. Weird but so very hard to put down. Until the end… the end, sadly fell flat.


Captivating overall. but the ending felt rushed and was expecting more


None of this is True. Twisted


Wow!. Just wow! I loved it! Couldn’t wait to read it every day. It’s a crazy story that had me hook, line and sinker!


None of This is True. Honestly, if I could give it 0 stars I would. The worst book i have read. !


Loved it!. Definitely a page turner!


Lacked depth. The story was immediately engaging and seemed to go really deep on certain aspects (typically surrounding the dark and creepy storyline) but totally missed opportunities to build some depth with the other characters. It felt like the only character that felt real was the main character, everyone else seemed flat.

Orchid plant

Fantastic. One of the best stories ever…..twists and turns. Many surprises. Hard to put down…..r


So good!. Couldn’t put this one down!


Wow…. This was my first thriller ever and first by her. So so good. Couldn’t put it down. I have ADHD and my last book took me a month to read. I read this in 24 hours. Psych thriller but not creepy or gory.

Abby Geiger

DEVOURED IN ONE DAY. Absolutely delicious. I will recommend to everyone I know. WOW. my first Jewell book and certainly not my last. Gripping from the first page.


Great all the way through. Great read from start to finish.


Riveting from the start.. So much to be said for those that have a social media persona and those that have a lingering want for a new life. Great great read.


Amazing!. It as an amazing story. Very suspenseful and I didn’t know who to believe. After finishing it, I still am unsure. Who is lying less ?

Mrs.KM Watson

Pretty good. The ending is what makes this a little less than 5 stars… maybe less than 4. It is definitely a good read!


Wow! Well done. Love the way she writes this like a true crime story unfolding. Leaves you wondering what to believe . I’m looking for another of her books to read write now!


Ok. Just an ok


Too creepy for me. The only reason I made myself finish it was that it was our book club’s selection. Josie’s character made my skin crawl and I wanted to put the book down and as far away from me as possible. If you like dark, you may like this book. It’s just not for me.


Just awful. Don’t waste your time…I actually got through half the book and then skipped ahead to third chapter from end…you can guess everything from that

Bren Murphy

12/5 HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. First - I have to say that the cast of performers in this audio version was maybe the most incredible group of performers ever! I feel like if you don’t do a side by side of audio and reading you are MISSING OUT on a truly incredible experience, I had not read this author and went in knowing little about her writing style or what I would be getting myself into. I am so thrilled with what I got out of this story as a reader- gripping from the beginning, all of the necessary shocks and twists while building a truly impressive story along the way! If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would absolutely do so!


A Page Turner!. Alix Summers, a podcaster, goes out to celebrate on her 45th birthday and meets a birthday twin, Josie Fair, who is also turning 45, and was born at the same hospital. It turns out that Josie had been a parent at the same school as Alix’s kids, but her kids were in their 20’s. Josie runs into Alix and asks her to stop by where she works to talk. Alix is hesitant, but finally agrees. Josie asks Alix to do a podcast on her as she is making big changes in her life by getting out of a bad marriage. Alix’s gut instinct says to walk away, but instead she agrees. What’s the fascination and who is Josie Fair? Is it what it seems? Lisa Jewell will take you on a wild ride as the truths are revealed. I love how Lisa Jewell’s books start out slowly building before they quickly become page turners that are hard to put down. I loved all the twists and turns in it! This book will leave you thinking about it long after it’s done. Perfect for book clubs to discuss as there is a lot to unpack! A great vacation read as well!
