A MOST-ANTICIPATED BOOK FROM BUSTLE · E! · USA TODAY · REFINERY29 · POPSUGAR · BOOKRIOT · HUFFINGTON POST · CRIMEREADS  · GOODREADS · THE TEMPEST

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 façade 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.

"The Wrong Family is your new obsession. It’s full of twists you’ll never see coming and you’ll be breathless until the end. Trust me: you’ve never read anything like this." (Number one New York Times best-selling author, Colleen Hoover)

wow

wow what a story...gripped from start to finish, the characters coming to life throughout the book.
disturbingly detailed, but all added to the depth of the story.
definitely recommending this to anyone who likes Tarryn Fisher writing .

Overhyped

I’m glad this is over. This book is overhyped in my opinion. The style of how the story is told is annoying and jumps all over the place.

This one grips you hard where it hurts and squeezes!

While I'm pushing past 1,000 audiobooks - more than 700 thru Audible alone - this has to be in the Top Ten of my all time favorites! I wanted to stay with it through a single reading, it was so good! It's 4AM as I write this - seriously. There's just one aspect of the story line that requires a little suspension of belief - but just go with it and you will be richly rewarded! And the ending - well, you'll never see it coming. It was ^that* good!

A twisted tale until the very end!

The Wrong Family will have you guessing until the very end. Then leaves you stunned as you hear the last line. The writing is engaging and will have you on the edge of your seat, reading (or listening) until the wee hours of the morning until you finish. You will not want to wait to read this new psychological thriller from Tarryn Fisher! And Lauren’s narrating is top notch and brings this story to life!

Odd

Very good writer who needed an honest friend or editor. The story is a mess. Honestly, I am an avid reader so maybe this author will read this review and take it to heart. The story was way to unbelievable, too many sub plots, and just strange. I could see really interesting ideas here that should have been fleshed out better. The big plus is the author is a good writer which means all of the above is fixable. She wrote the homeless person very well as I have spent my whole life working in that system. Great details and descriptions just needed a better plot. I think telling story thru the eyes of homeless person could really be used well in a different setting. I could see a real thriller there. Keep trying.

Meh

NO SPOILERS! I usually love Tarryn’s books but this one was a bit slow. The characters were interesting enough but it just was ok. If you have never listened to her stories I suggest “Mud Vein”, it’s fantastic and unforgettable.

Captivating

This certainly kept my interest. Lots of twists. Slightly unrealistic but hey I do Love Tarryn Fisher.

It was lacking...

This book could have been better if we fleshed out the characters a little bit more. We get little tib bits here and there on certain characters and with some characters, none. I also think the twist in the beginning of the book should have been pushed into the middle. Maybe the writer could have gotten somebody to look at the story a few times and help her edit it to make it better. I also didn't like that the story kinda just stops.

I'm gonna say pass on this book.

Fiction all the way!

If you want to read a story that has the possibility of reality...The Wrong Family isn’t for you.
Lots of turns and twist.
It will keep you guessing.

Slow beginning but stay for the ride!

I must admit this story was not what I expected it to be. The beginning was slow and daunting and I almost gave up on it.

I'm happy that I continued with it as it did draw me in. It does have some definite twist and turns and left me with an unsure feeling, of If I cared about any of the characters ( except for maybe the son) but I was invested enough in the story to want know the ending.

Not a typical happy family story, so don't look for that. It does however give insights into how secrets can destroy a family. Some realistic and others a bit far fetching nonetheless secrets can and usually do destroy from within.

I feel it's a story worth listening to just be patient with the beginning.
