From the author of the instant New York Times bestseller The Wives comes another twisted psychological thriller guaranteed to turn your world upside down.
Have you ever been wrong about someone?
Juno was wrong about Winnie Crouch.
Before moving in with the Crouch family, Juno thought Winnie and her husband, Nigel, had the perfect marriage, the perfect son—the perfect life. Only now that she’s living in their beautiful house, she sees the cracks in the crumbling facade are too deep to ignore.
Still, she isn’t one to judge. After her grim diagnosis, the retired therapist simply wants a place to live out the rest of her days in peace. But that peace is shattered the day Juno overhears a chilling conversation between Winnie and Nigel…
She shouldn’t get involved.
She really shouldn’t.
But this could be her chance to make a few things right.
Because if you thought Juno didn’t have a secret of her own, then you were wrong about her, too.
From the wickedly dark mind of bestselling author Tarryn Fisher, The Wrong Family is a taut new thriller that’s riddled with twists in all the right places.
“The Wrong Family is your new obsession. It’s full of twists you’ll never see coming and you’ll be breathless until the end. Trust me: you’ve never read anything like this.” –#1 New York Times bestselling author, Colleen Hoover
Don’t miss An Honest Lie, the next gripping, unputdownable, twist-filled thriller from Tarryn Fisher!

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
When her health declines, retired therapist Juno Holland—the heroine of this suspenseful psychological thriller—moves in with the seemingly perfect Crouch family. Joining this welcoming, cozy suburban household is a comfort to Juno—until she overhears two of the Crouches having a very disturbing conversation. Tarryn Fisher, author of the bestseller The Wives, pulls us right down the rabbit hole as Juno’s fears spin into obsession. She sets up a breathless game of cat and mouse, packed full of hidden agendas and unreliable narrators, while also making some solid, responsible points about class struggle and mental illness. Pushing her compelling but mysterious characters toward their shocking fates, Fisher keeps us guessing: Is something dark lurking underneath the Crouch family’s shiny veneer, or is Juno losing touch with reality?
Juno Holland, the protagonist of this gripping psychological thriller from Fisher (The Wives), was once a successful psychologist, until her penchant for getting too involved in her patients' lives led to her losing her practice and her home. Now, at 67, she sleeps on a bench in a Seattle park, where she meets and befriends 12-year-old Sam Crouch. One day, Juno can't resist sneaking into Sam's house, which his parents, Winnie and Nigel, are renovating, while the workers are out. When the workers return, she hides in a closet, where she discovers a trap door that leads to a large crawl space. She makes the crawl space her new home, where, undetected, she can overhear Winnie and Nigel quarreling. Eventually, Juno uncovers a sinister family secret. Reverting to her old ways, she involves herself in a dangerous game of cat and mouse surrounding Winnie, a missing young woman, and the woman's baby. If Juno is right in what she thinks is going on, she will have saved a child and redeemed herself; if she's wrong, it could cost her and others their lives. Vivid prose and well-drawn characters keep the pages turning. Fisher remains a writer to watch.
