Wrong Family – Book Review

The Wrong Family: A Thriller by [Tarryn Fisher]

Have you ever been wrong about someone? 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. Still, she isn’t one to judge. After her grim diagnosis, the retired therapist simply wants a place to live out the rest of her days in peace. But that peace is shattered the day Juno overhears a chilling conversation between Winnie and Nigel… She shouldn’t get involved. She really shouldn’t. But this could be her chance to make a few things right. Because if you thought Juno didn’t have a secret of her own, then you were wrong about her, too. From the wickedly dark mind of bestselling author Tarryn Fisher, The Wrong Family is a taut new thriller that’s riddled with twists in all the right places.

After reading The Wives by Tarryn Fisher, I immediately wanted to read her books and was thrilled when I did get a chance to access the audiobook of her second book, The Wrong Family.

Did I expect the similar hype I found in the Wives? I did. Did this book disappoint me? Sadly yes.

If you have read my review on the Wives, I truly enjoyed reading the book as it was filled with twists, drama and turns and an ending that was totally unexpected. So I did expect the similar plot with her second book as well. Unfortunately, I did not.

Juno, a former therapist is homeless and is living in the basement of a house of Crouch family–Winnie, Nigel and their son Samuel. Then Juno discovers a deep dark secret that would actually ruin the story.

The plot was good, but was a bit unrealistic to me. The ending was filled with drama that I felt like I was watching some crime show on TV!!! The story is based on perspectives of Winnie and Juno so you know what the two characters are going through and thinking about. The characters are boring to me, plot also seemed to get boring except towards the end and overall, I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed her other book, The Wives.

Overall, I rate this book as two stars!
