The Family Remains by Lisa Jewell

Another of the super popular recent psychological thrillers, I wasn’t 100% sold on this one.

Loved the first part of the book where three interconnected, interesting stories roll out.

It’s extremely well written.

Some fascinating characters.

A murder mystery.

Adults scarred by childhood trauma. Themes of closure, marital disillusionment, familial solidarity, extortion, and historical crimes.

But by the end of the book I grew bored of waiting around for the resolution.


BRILLIANT ending, however. That almost redeems the storytelling for me.
