The Wrong Family by Tarryn Fisher | Review

The Wrong Family | Tarryn Fisher | Graydon House | Pub: December 29, 2020 | Pages: 336

I’m a Tarryn Fisher fan but I’m sad to say that this one wasn’t my favorite.

General with a Tarryn Fisher book you must expect the unexpected and be ready for anything, but this one felt a bit flat and boring to me. I really loved the Wives and was expecting something similar.

There were many twists and turns, and Tarryn Fisher is very good at incorporating those into her stories, but I think my expectations were too high for this one, and I was left feeling underwhelmed.

The book was very slow in the beginning, at around the 50% mark it started to get interesting, and I felt myself more emotionally invested in the story. However, I had a hard time liking any of the characters and hated that a mental health issue was used as the premise of this story.

In the end, this book just wasn’t believable and the ending didn’t win me over as I found it a bit ridiculous. Overall, it was okay. Just not my favorite Tarryn Fisher book. I highly recommend reading The Wives instead, and I still remain a fan of Tarryn Fischer and can’t wait to see what she cooks up next.

Thank you to HARLEQUIN – Trade Publishing for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


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.
