The Wrong Family

We rated this book:


“Winnie and Nigel have a great marriage, at least on the outside. They are currently celebrating fifteen years together. They have Samuel, a good kid anyone would be proud to call their own, except when they’re having typical teenage control issues. They have a great house, which needs some minor repairs and an update, but what house doesn’t? However, Winnie and Nigel have a shared secret, and it keeps them together as much as it drives them apart. When Juno, a former therapist, overhears something condemning while at the house, she assumes the worst. Her subsequent actions immediately put into motion a string of chess moves that cannot be stopped until someone reaches checkmate, someone unexpected and completely out of control, whose actions will alter this family forever.

Misdirection and suspense is Fischer’s specialty in her new novel. Just when readers think they know the coming chess moves, the author changes direction and throws an unexpected startling play. Complex and broken characters compete for attention while trying to maintain a carefree persona, creating a novel that will startle and terrify readers, as who knows what a person holds in his heart. This is one to add to the top of the To-Be-Read pile.”
