The Family Upstairs is a book I read because I enjoyed Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell.
Her name pops up a lot, so I read this one. What can I say? The title sold me and another Lisa Jewell novel sounds good.
Unlike Then She Was Gone, the story moved slowly with multiple points of view and had me hoping it would end sooner rather than later.

My Book Review for The Family Upstairs
If you like literary fiction with some suspense and mystery, you’ll like this book.
It is a domestic suspense that involves a suicide pact in a family home full of young children.
Fast forward to the present day and a surprise inheritance is revealed with more slippery plots, a mysterious death, and multiple storylines.
It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t one of those books that make you want to keep on reading to see what happens next.
You really need to read for a bit to see how the characters develop and see what secrets slowly reveal themselves.
I’m not one that likes to take time with my books.
I want them to be so good that I finish them in a day or two.
For me, this was not one of those books, but if you’re into writers of psychological suspense then I suggest reading Ruth Ware.
