I’ve been tearing through books and binging shows lately! The latest was The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell. This one was engaging. More dramatic than eerie or suspenseful. It took me a while to mentally wrap my brain around all of the key players but the story kept me interested and engaged to the end. Speaking of the end, it was a nice, mildly surprising wrap up. Overall, I liked Then She Was Gone better, but wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this one.

As Libby investigates the story of her birth parents and the dark legacy of her new home, Clemency and Lucy are headed her way to uncover, and possibly protect, secrets of their own. What really happened in that rambling Chelsea mansion when they were children? And are they still at risk?
