The Wrong Family by Tarryn Fisher
Release Date: December 29th
From the author of the instant New York Times bestseller The Wives comes another twisted psychological thriller guaranteed to turn your world upside down.
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.

This is a twisted story about a family that is falling apart and it was a very entertaining and captivating read. We have two narrators and it was so interesting seeing things from both of their perspectives. Neither of them are very likable but their bad decisions lead to a very appealing story. There is a lot going on in this one story and I can easily picture this book as a movie. It is overly dramatic (especially that ending!) but it kept me wanting to read to see what was going to happen next. Fisher has a very informal style of writing that I sometimes liked and other times it felt out of place. I also don’t like the way that mental illness was portrayed in the this story especially when it was used as a scapegoat. There are also a lot of trigger warnings in this story including: miscarriage, cheating, drug and alcohol abuse. While this story was a twisted ride it was a mostly predictable one. I think that if you are looking for a book that is high enjoyment and easily read then this might be one you want to check out. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this to anyone looking for a perfectly plotted domestic or psychological thriller because this books strong suit is the high drama factor. I never read Fisher’s previous book, The Wives, but I have added it to my 2021 list of books because I am very intrigued if these two stories are similar at all.
