Description

From the New York Times best-selling author and master of “bone-chilling suspense” (People) comes another pause-resisting look inside one family’s past as buried secrets threaten to come to light.

Gifted musician Clemency Thompson is playing for tourists on the streets of Southern France when she receives an urgent text message. Her childhood friend, Lucy, is demanding her immediate return to London.

It’s happening, says the message. The baby is back.

Libby Jones was only six months old when she became an orphan. Now 25, she’s astounded to learn of an inheritance that will change her life. A gorgeous, dilapidated townhouse in one of London’s poshest neighborhoods has been held in a trust for her all these years. Now, it’s hers.

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?

Jewell’s novels have been praised as “sure to please fans of Ruth Ware and A.J. Finn” (Library Journal), and her latest is no exception. The Family Upstairs will keep you guessing until the very end.

Sample contains spoilers

I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it, but I listened to the full sample before downloading. Instead of being from the first chapter or two like usual, it’s from a chapter near the end of book and references info you don’t get until past halfway through.

Great listen!

Highly recommend, I didn't want the story to end. I wanted to make the book last, but couldn't stop listening.

What an amazing binge!

This was nowhere on my radar, but got the recommendation from Audible.ca. I loved it! The story was so tight and absolutely enthralling, preformed by fantastic narrators. 5 Stars all around!

Just left me hanging

I was so into this book I binged nearly 10 hours straight. All the while expecting the boogeyman to emerge with a last minute twist. And then nothing...
My jaw literally hung open after the last sentence was read with disbelief. I was left thinking, so what was the point. Great character development, awesome narration but the ending fell flat.

Did Not Disappoint... I LOVE LISA JEWELL

I am picky, and have never waited for any author to come out with a new book except for Lisa Jewell. The story is creative... and so many emotions: sad, funny, intense & dark all at the same time. These narrators— SO GOOD!! All of them. Henry’s narrator made me laugh so many times. Please... write another one soon!

Good Listen

This is my third listen from Lisa Jewell and I was not disappointed. The book was good, A bit short, and leaves you wondering if there will be a part 2. I really enjoy her imagination and her writing.

Confusing. Just ok.

I loved Lisa Jewell’s other books and pre-ordered this one. It fell flat for me. The first half of the book was slow, disjointed and confusing with so many characters. The second half was better, but I had hoped for so much more. I kept waiting for some bombshell to be revealed that I didn’t see coming to make this journey all worth it and it never happened. I’m surprised by all of the rave reviews. I’ll continue to be a Lisa Jewell fan but really - this was a disappointment.

Another great Lisa Jewell book!!!

I recently discovered Lisa Jewell this year and I have powered through her novels one right after another. Her most recent one does not disappoint. Lots of twists and turns and just when you think you’ve got it figured out, she drops another bombshell. If you like Ruth Ware, BA Paris and of course Lisa Jewel, you will enjoy this novel.

A great listen

I love most of Lisa Jewell’s book and this one didn’t disappoint. Uncomfortable and creepy and totally compelling. I only wished it were a bit longer. I hope for my audio books to be at least 10 hours long. The narration on the book was flawless. Love those British accents.

This is a sad tale os a normal smiley that is invaded by a sinister man, woman & child slowly but sickeningly destroy them all.

How can one man or is it the woman? like today’s society,we hardly notice that step by step, we have given in slow but sure from a God fearing People to a big part of society not even wanting to allow God’s name used in schools or the Pledge of Allegiance said standing with hand over heart with flag raised saluting our United Stated of America’s. That is what has happened within this little family, slow but sure, day by day, the sinister evil creeping ever slowly without them even hardly noticing it, it is so cunning and clever and sweetly done, that before they realize it, they are trapped.
Now what will they do? This is really a sick story of sorts, yet it held my interest to find out what they would do to get out of this situation or if they would?

How can one man or is it the woman? that day by day so slowly, like today’s society,we hardly notice that step by step, we have give from from a God fearing People to a big part of society not even wanting to allow God’s name used in schools or the Pledge ofAllegiance said

Torn

The premise for the story was a bit lackluster, but the author's style was so captivating and enjoyable to listen to. Jewell has a unique way of seeing the world and the people in it.
