About the Book (From Goodreads): 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.
5 Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
All I can say is that I loved this book. I am not telling you anything more about the plot than what the blurb does, because you need to find out what is happening in your own. Winnie Crouch and her husband, Nigel, seem to be leading a happy normal life with their son, Samuel. Juno is also living in their house. She is a retired psychologist and overhears something that she can’t ignore. And then there is Dakota, Winnie’s brother, a mentally unstable substance abuser who moves in with the Crouch family when his wife kicks him out. The only character that I really like in this story is Samuel however, no one is who or what they seem, so my likes changed throughout the story. There were so many secrets, feelings held in, and false faces shown that I wasn’t sure what I knew. Every time I thought I had figured this story out, there was a twist or a tidbit revealed that had me scurrying down a different path. This story starts slow, then ratchets up the tension, until the OMG happens and I found myself holding my breath. This story was full of dysfunctional adults who were all keeping secrets that cause some terrible events to occur. One that I devoured from the opening paragraph until the end.
The audiobook was narrated by Lauren Fortgang. I have enjoyed previous books she has narrated and do not hesitate to listen to her work. She does a great job with the various voices, which allowed me to connect to the characters. Her expression, tone and inflection used throughout the story brought it to life for this listener and I do recommend this audiobook for not only the great story, but the narration as well. I was gifted this book upon request, the rating and opinions shared are my own.
