Juno was wrong about Winnie Crouch. Before moving in with the Crouch family, Juno thought Winnie and her husband, Nigel, had the perfect marriage, the perfect son—the perfect life. Only now that she's living in their beautiful house, she sees the cracks in the crumbling facade are too deep to ignore.
If you are looking for a twisty, one-sit read that will resonate with you long after the final page has been turned, then I would suggest you start perusing The Wrong Family immediately. Tarryn Fisher’s latest work is a domestic thriller with a tantalizing mystery at its core ... I cannot stress enough how marvelous Fisher is at subtle misdirection, hints and sleight of hand. The characters lie to each other and to themselves so that the truth is something that rises to the top of the book slowly, if at all. The tale also is shot through with a subtle irony. By its conclusion, one has mixed emotions for each of the characters, except for Samuel, who is loved by (almost) all but is in the wrong place at the wrong time. The title of the book has layers of meanings — some obvious, some otherwise — and you will want to experience them all.
The protagonist of this gripping psychological thriller from Fisher, was once a successful psychologist, until her penchant for getting too involved in her patients’ lives led to her losing her practice and her home ... If Juno is right in what she thinks is going on, she will have saved a child and redeemed herself; if she’s wrong, it could cost her and others their lives. Vivid prose and well-drawn characters keep the pages turning. Fisher remains a writer to watch.
This book rates a 10 out of 10 on the creepiness scale. Readers will be peering over their shoulders with trepidation as their paranoia levels soar. Suspense fans will love being frightened by this twisty plot. Fisher’s goosebump-inducing book will spook readers long after the final pages are turned.
