Description

I tried to give a quick recap of the events from the first book and extra information about new storyline. Several decades after the three adult bodies were found dead on the kitchen floor of the home at 16 Cheyne Walk, a bag of bones was discovered on the shores on The Thames River. This book is very character-driven, but also provides the mystery and suspense that you've come to love with Lisa Jewell novels.

This is the sequel to Lisa Jewell's chilling The Family Upstairs, a top notch multilayered and intricate psychological thriller with its old and new characters. Quick note: As a big fan who devours Double Double burgers weekly , I found a FALSE INFORMATION in the chapter 45! I’ve been craving to read the sequel to THE FAMILY UPSTAIRS ever since I finished it, and Lisa Jewell hasn’t let me or her millions of fans down. Even though the author does a great job of recapping the events of Cheyne Walk, to really understand the characters, especially Henry, you need the full background. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.

After fleeing London thirty years ago in the wake of a horrific tragedy, Lucy Lamb is finally coming home. Libby Jones (birth name Serenity Lamb) has grown close to her biological mother, Lucy Lamb, her uncle, Henry Lamb, half-brother Marco, and half-sister Stella. Yes, we have a new character, Rachel, Lucy’s ex-husband Michael’s second wife, whose perspective is shared as part of the narrative and is of absolutely no consequence except to serve as a filler for what is overall a weak and underdeveloped story.

There are several POVs and many mysteries to resolve, including the detective trying to solve the case, Rachel; a recently married jewelry designer, Lucy Lamb; who fled London 30 years ago; and her creepy brother, Henry, who, to put it mildly, has some issues. They inform her that her husband, Michael, has been found dead, apparently murdered, in the cellar of his house in the South of France. I was going to give it a generous three stars because I was caught up in the drama of it all, but then Lisa Jewell said HOLD MY BEER and this story nosedived into one-star territory at the speed of light.I highly recommend skim-reading it like I did, or at least have a copy handy to refer to if you get lost. The author does an excellent job of referring to crucial incidents, but I think you would be cheating yourself if you didn’t read both books. Rachel Rimmer had married the seemingly perfect Michael perhaps rather too quickly, the abusive Michael is Lucy's ex, and he has now been found dead at his home in France and the French police want to talk to her. Rachel's story kept me mesmerized and horrified (warning to those sensitive to scenes of sexual assault and emotional abuse), made somehow even more satisfying by the fact that the book begins with the conclusion to her story and we get to sit through the backstory in wide-eyed anticipation of what's to come. Her novels have sold over 10 million copies internationally, and her work has also been translated into twenty-nine languages.
