The Wrong Family by Tarryn Fisher is a very highly recommended twisty psychological thriller.
Juno Holland, a retired therapist, is living in the home of Winnie
and Nigel Crouch and their son, Samuel. Juno thought they had a good
marriage and it seemed that she had found the perfect place to live out
her last days until she moved in and started to hear their arguments.
Suddenly it seems that their marriage isn't as good as Juno thought. She
knows they have some issues, but she is shocked after she hears one
secret the two share. But Juno has a few secrets too.
The alternating chapters are narrated by Juno and Winnie in this well
written and expertly plotted thriller. Let me just say from the start
that if you begin this novel and think you have an idea of where things
are going or what is going to happen, hold that thought and keep
reading. The plot starts off at a slower pace before the speed begins to
incrementally ramp up to a gallop. It is also clear that something is
off with the story we are hearing at first, until more information is
revealed and the plot takes a creepy turn. You are probably going to be
surprised more than once at the twists which take place and the secrets
that are revealed in this deeply satisfying psychological thriller.
Don't take any of the characters at face value, keep reading and set predictions aside. The Wrong Family is
one of those novels that you don't want to say too much about because
you don't want to ruin it for another reader. It is worth reading, my
friends, trust me on this.
