Review: The Wrong Family by Tarryn Fisher

Summary 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.


I was highly anticipating the latest Tarryn Fisher thriller since I enjoyed The Wives last year. However, it was not my favorite of her works.

I found the story-line with Juno interesting and would have enjoyed if the novel was told solely from her point of view. I also was surprised by one of the twists that happened near the end of the novel.

I struggled to connect with the characters we get povs from, June and Winnie, and the pacing most of all in the middle dragged for me. I found a bit predictable for me and the conclusion felt rushed. However, I like Fisher’s writing style and will keep reading her thrillers even if I do not connect with the characters or like the plot.

I still recommend checking out this 2021 thriller if you enjoy Tarryn Fisher writing style. It was an okay read.


3.2 Stars Out of 5 Stars.


I'm person who loves reviewing, reading, talking about, and just being around books!
