Review: The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell

Genre: Mystery/Thriller

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

Whoa, mama! This was a wild ride! Told from three different points of view, this chilling tale of family secrets, abuse, and manipulation will have you on the edge of your seat, flipping pages until way past your bedtime. Or if you’re anything like me, listening to the amazing audiobook narration, waving frantically at your family to STFU so you can figure out the next big twist.

On Libby’s twenty-fifth birthday, she finds out she has inherited the beautiful mansion that once belonged to her birth parents. From there, we are sent on a journey that weaves in and out of past and present, as we piece together the events that led to what has been ruled a murder-suicide that took place in that very mansion. But as Libby and her reporter friend dig deeper, they begin to unearth more truths and bigger secrets, meeting others from her past along the way. But nothing is certain and the whole truth can’t come out until the survivors of this old house of terrors come together and are finally honest with themselves and each other about what exactly happened on that night twenty-five years ago.

Highly, HIGHLY recommend this for mystery/thriller fans. Lisa Jewell die hards will not be disappointed. So twisty and turny and don’t think you have it all figured out, because you don’t.

Thank you so much to Atria and Librofm for the ALC. The Family Upstairs is out now!
