The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell @SimonSchusterCA @lisajewelluk

The Family Upstairs is now available. Lisa Jewell the master of “bone-chilling suspense” (People)  has done it again and had this reader chilled to the bone after reading this exciting and enthralling domestic family saga/ thriller. I flew those this one turning the pages as fast as I could.

Brenda’s review

After seeing some mixed thoughts for The Family Upstairs, I was a little worried one of my favorite authors has turned to the dark side in more ways than one. I am so glad I decided to give this a try for myself because I had nothing to worry about. Lisa Jewell continues to do no wrong with this devoted reader.

Lisa Jewell is moving a little towards the darker side from what this “Lisa Jewell reader” has come to expect. However, I have moved a little ok a lot to the darker side myself, so I think she and I still make a great match. She still has all those significant elements that make for her signature suspenseful style with those well-layered unpredictable plots and reveals and twists that come just at the right time to figure some things out but still keep you guessing right to the end.

The Family Upstairs is a compelling family saga with devilishly, deliciously chilling narrative along with disturbing dark characters. I enjoyed the three POVs along with the different timelines that had me questioning the reliability of some characters. The last few pages are so chilling and I loved every one of them. I was left feeling delightfully chilled to the bone with how it all came together. I highly recommend.
