The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell Book Summary


“Rich, dark, and intricately twisted, this enthralling whodunit mixes family saga with domestic noir to brilliantly chilling effect.” —Ruth Ware, New York Times bestselling author

“A haunting, atmospheric, stay-up-way-too-late read.” —Megan Miranda, New York Times bestselling author

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Then She Was Gone comes another page-turning look inside one family’s past as buried secrets threaten to come to light.

Be careful who you let in.

Soon after her twenty-fifth birthday, Libby Jones returns home from work to find the letter she’s been waiting for her entire life. She rips it open with one driving thought: I am finally going to know who I am.

She soon learns not only the identity of her birth parents, but also that she is the sole inheritor of their abandoned mansion on the banks of the Thames in London’s fashionable Chelsea neighborhood, worth millions. Everything in Libby’s life is about to change. But what she can’t possibly know is that others have been waiting for this day as well—and she is on a collision course to meet them.

Twenty-five years ago, police were called to 16 Cheyne Walk with reports of a baby crying. When they arrived, they found a healthy ten-month-old happily cooing in her crib in the bedroom. Downstairs in the kitchen lay three dead bodies, all dressed in black, next to a hastily scrawled note. And the four other children reported to live at Cheyne Walk were gone.

In The Family Upstairs, the master of “bone-chilling suspense” (People) brings us the can’t-look-away story of three entangled families living in a house with the darkest of secrets.

Confusing. It was difficult to follow each characters story.

Misery fest.. This was twisted and horrific.. It went on and on. I skipped to the end just to get it over with. I didn’t like any of the characters or their torture and sad stupidity. What in the world was the author thinking? Too much misery.

Wonderful!. I couldn’t stop reading it.

So good!. Couldn't put it down! I wish there was more.

This one!!. I’ve not had a book in quite some time draw me in like this one did. A true page turner. So much heartache; but also, so much strength. Bravo, Ms Jewel!!!

Good read. It was enjoyable and intriguing. Great pace and I loved the way the story unfolded.

It’s ok. This is one of those books where I needed more. When I was half way through the book I realize I didn’t know what was going on. The book got interesting at the end. I really don’t have much to say about it 🤷🏾‍♀️ . The Family Upstairs is a psychological thriller with multiple storylines, following the point of view of three main character . On her 26th birthday Libby, who was adopted discovered that she has inherit a mansion, from a family she knows nothing about . She decides that wants to know more about her birth parents which sparks an investigation with the help of a reporter. she soon finds out that the mystery surrounding her birth family is more complex than she thought. . Lucy’s a single mom of two children , currently homeless and desperately working to put a roof over her children’s heads. One morning she receives a calendar reminder that “the baby has turned 25”, now she’s committed to making it back home and nothing and no one will get in her way. . Henry, one of the child who was raised in the mansion, shares his story of his family and how they lost everything . .

Could not put it down. It’s been such a pleasure discovering Lisa Jewell. It’s been so long since I’ve found something I just could not put down. And this was it! Well this, and the other novels she’s written so far. Pretty great, Ms. Jewell, keep ‘em coming!!!!!

👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼. Very interesting novel. Very twisted and you don’t really know where the story is going. Kind of reminds of The Glass Castle with the themes are a different kind of upbringing. It would be interesting to see this as a movie.

No closure. Didn’t wrap up the storylines like I’d hoped. Still a good read

The family upstairs. Really enjoyed reading this book! Kind of dark but couldn’t put it down. Nice twists at the end. Going on to the sequel!

Read it in ONE day. This story is brilliant and perfect for a time when you want to get lost in a different world.

Highly recommend!!. It took me a second to really dive deep into this book, but once i did, i loved every bit of it!

Good Read. I enjoyed this book. Quite a few twist and turns and tied up neatly at the end. I enjoy this authors style of writing. There is a sequel to this book. So I will reading it as well.

Absolutely riveting. This is my first Lisa Jewel novel, I hope I spelled her name correctly, and I couldn’t put it down. So captivating from page one, an absolute page turner, excellent to the very last sentence!

10/10!!!. Such a good book!! So many twists and turns I’m so sad I finished it. This is the second book I’ve read by this author. She is amazing!

Good read. Very good book, well written, the end drags a little but is worth it

AMAZING. This book really kept me on my toes. I read the entire thing in one day! Cannot recommend this enough.

Hard to follow. Too many characters, too much jumping around of the storyline.

Excellent - couldn’t put it down.. Suspense at its best!

FYI. As of making this review I am halfway through the book. If you are a child or just someone who doesn’t like reading about suicide, rape, sexual intercourse, or murder, I don’t recommend this book. It’s a pretty interesting book though, when it doesn’t show what I mentioned before. Okay, I change my rating. It was fun to read and uncover more things about their past, but some of it made me disgusted. I can tolerate some hints in the description that it has some dark things in it, but not when it just shows itself as a book with mystery in it, when it has wayyy more than that. May you please have a description that says the book has sensitive topics?

Enjoyed this. Very well written

Drawn out. Ok

Loved it!. Great story

Loved it. I could not put this book down! What a great read!

Amazing!!. I absolute loved this book! Kept you glued until the very end. I loved the different story lines between the characters and how they all tied up. Every time I guessed my own conclusion, I was wrong. A definite read!

Terrible. Too much going on, too many characters and I didn’t make it have way through the book.

Wow just wow... Will definitely be reading more from Lisa Jewell

Worth it. It’s starts out slow, but once it gets going it hooked me right in. I didn’t want to put it down!

Wwwqqwwwwwwwwwinkkkkkj. Hi there I’m gonna right is the in question weevil look kzzz sex

The Family Upstairs. Interesting story, if you like a twist this is the book for you.

Great read!. I really enjoyed this book! Each chapter I wanted to read more and more. The ending was not what I expected to happen!

Nice Read. This was my first Lisa Jewell book. I enjoyed the way in which the chapters focused on individual characters. It flowed nicely and was very easy to follow. I particularly enjoyed how everything came together towards the end. I always judge a book’s greatness on whether or not I’d read it again. Would I read this again, no. But I’m glad that I got to experience it at least once.

I loved this book!. I loved this book! It kept me guessing, kept me “turning the pages” on my phone. Will there be another?!?!

Couldn’t put it down!. Well written, twisty, beautifully sad story. Finished it in two days.

Love this book!. Slow in the beginning. Tricky to follow all the character and timelines that change every chapter. I recommend reading in large chunks and making a note of the characters so you don’t get. The second half of the book is soooo good. Read like 300 pages in one day. I love this book!

Loved it. Great read! Could not put it down

Meh. A lot of characters to keep track of. Wasn’t thrilling or suspenseful. Wouldn’t recommend to a friend. Just meh

Suspenseful!. Great read! Could not put down!!

Lost. Not all books are for everyone…just couldn’t get into this one or keep track of the characters and timeline. Probably won’t read the sequel

Spell Binding. This is the second of Lisa Jewell’s mysteries that I have read. They were both books that I could not put down.

Great read.. At first I will admit I was intimidated by how many different character plots were intertwined in this book. However, after you get a sense of how all the characters are connected it makes the read so smooth. I honestly could not put this book down once I got into it. Such an unexpected ending. I highly recommend reading the sequel because it makes the book complete.

The Family Upstairs. An absolutely great read!! From start to finish it kept me trying to figure out the truth. If u love a good story then this one is for u.

Shocking at how it all went wrong…. It was a bit of a slow start, what with the views of each character shifting around in the present day; and the events that transpired in the past as well. It grows momentum until finally, you realize who is who and how it all went wrong. I find the shadowy past of this story grimly manipulating, to say the least. It easily spiraled me into a mild depression, and yet, I couldn’t put it down until the dark fog cleared at the end. The more I read, the more aggravating I was to hear about the couple that moved in the mansion. What a wicked, slow way of torture to simply scam a family. I sometimes wonder what goes there Jewel’s head to create such twists and turns to make her stories gut-wrenching or much to adding her red-herrings. I’m fond of her work and will continue to read more.

Would recommend 4.3/5. This is a decent book. The story is told in multiple timelines by different characters but it isn’t confusing or hard to follow. A lot of the things adds up in the end and the book answers a lot of the questions you have. The writing is very well in my opinion. The audiobook for this is also really good, I would recommend it. If this is your time reading Lisa Jewells books then I would recommend something like “Then She Was Gone” before reading this one.

The Family Upstairs. I absolutely loved this book! Couldn’t put it down! Never what you expected! Wow!!

The Family Upstairs. If I could, I would give this book six stars. I can’t wait to read more of her books!

The Family Upstairs. This book captured me! I could not put it down. It has a creative plot and is well written. I really enjoyed this book!

Great read. This one was so captivating. I had a hard time putting it down and finished it in such a short time.

Brilliant. Hard to put down and not overly predictable

Great build up and a dissapoimtinf let down. Read this with growing anticipation and interest o my to be let down by a far too tidy ending. “Then She Was Gone” was far and away a better read!

Really bad. Pass on this one. Story too long, some big plot holes. Not a thriller, just tedious.
