The Wrong Family by Tarryn Fisher
Published: December 29, 2020
I pre-ordered this book in August, so I got it soon as it was available for download.
Tarryn Fisher is the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of nine novels. Born a sun hater, she currently makes her home in Seattle, Washington, with her children, husband, and psychotic husky. She loves connecting with her readers on Instagram.
“But she’d chosen the wrong family to follow, a family with deep, dark secrets.”
Winnie seems to have it all: a doting husband, a beautiful son, her dream house, and a career she enjoys. But Winnie also has secrets. Deep, dark, dirty secrets. And the thing with secrets is, the truth always comes out.
Juno has had a hard life. She made a mistake, lost her career, went to prison, and when she is released, finds herself homeless. Her husband took their sons and disappeared, so she is entirely alone. Until she takes an interest in a family. Then Junk feels compelled to the right their wrongs, and she takes it upon herself to undo what has been done. She won’t stand for secrets to remain hidden.
This novel was insane. The way the characters are intertwined and the way the plot unfolds is bananas. Tarryn Fisher writes such dark, twisted stories. But she brings them to life in the most beautiful of ways.
There are so many underlying themes running throughout this book. Motherhood, family, mental illness, homelessness, incarceration, to name a few. I have such deep respect for Fisher and her ability to take authentic problems and put them at the forefront of her writing. She forces us to be aware of the issues we face as a society, and in that, she is making us take accountability. It’s a brutal truth we desperately need but rarely seek.
The twists in this book are so well done. I did not see any of this coming. I didn’t know what to expect in the first half of the book if I am honest. Then as the plot thickens, I did not understand what was happening until it happened.
This book is excellent, definitely worth the wait. There is something so brutally brilliant about a Tarryn Fisher novel. This is a must-read for every thriller fan. You want dark and twisted? Here you go.
