About this deal

I was happy to discover that The Family Remains tied up many of the loose ends from her previous book, The Family Upstairs.

As the story begins, we see Lucy, Henry and Libby carrying on with their lives after the events in the previous book. You committed a serious crime and you're just in the streets because some small town Detective wants to keep an eye on you? So, DCI Owusu starts trying to put the pieces together of what happened all those years ago when people died and people disappeared from 16 Cheyne Walk. But, it turns out that was unnecessary because the author seamlessly summarizes it in the first few chapters.I think that it would be helpful to have read The Family Upstairs before reading The Family Remains.

stars— I read “The Family Remains” by Lisa Jewell not knowing it was a sequel to “The Family Upstairs”. It is a credit to Jewell that I was able to keep up with a story that has a multitude of characters with multiple aliases and backstories with the help of the handy family tree she includes at the beginning of the book. It’s been three years since “The Family Upstairs”, and it all came back to me as soon as I began reading “Remains”. She worked for the fashion chain Warehouse for three years as a PR assistant and then for Thomas Pink, the Jermyn Street shirt company for four years as a receptionist and PA.

I have to advise you to read or reread the first book again to get into this story because this is not a standalone and without knowing the characters’ back stories and things happened that haunted mansion that invaded by parasites who act like cult members, you find yourself left in the dark! I remembered the first book mostly although the details eluded me until this book reminded me, very well, of what exactly had happened in the first book.
