Synopsis:

From the author of the instant New York Times bestseller The Wives comes another twisted psychological thriller guaranteed to turn your world upside down.

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.

From the wickedly dark mind of bestselling author Tarryn Fisher, The Wrong Family is a taut new thriller that’s riddled with twists in all the right places.


If you love Tarryn Fisher’s writing, you’re going to love The Wrong Family.  It’s classic Tarryn Fisher style. She immediately drew me in with her writing and her flawed characters and kept me hooked until the last page. Juno had me wanting to know all the Crouch family secrets. Heck, Winnie and rest of the Crouches made me want to know all their secrets. They were characters I disliked, but loved all the same. As a Seattle area native, I really loved the setting. The Crouch house near Green Lake gave off all the right vibes for the story. And that story! The mystery Juno was trying to solve captivated me, as did her life story. The best part was I didn’t see the climax coming until I was right in it. I should have, but I was too invested in something else. I loved how everything wrapped up. The Wrong Family was exactly what I’ve come to expect from Tarryn Fisher.

    1. No, the majority of her books are not really romances. Most are twisted and dark. F*ck Love, F*ck Marriage, Atheists Who Kneel and Pray and her first series are ones I would call romances. The rest are more like psychological thrillers.

    1. Thank you! Yes, I love her books. You should try I Can Be a Better You. That one is messed up and I loved it.
