The Family Remains will give readers closure on what happens next and lets us see how the survivors are coping. It also was an issue that when one narrator had to do the voice of another’s character, there was no similarity.

Do you think Phin is right to fully blame the adults, or do you think Henry is responsible for some of the harm that occurred in the house?

Well, I am afraid to say that this morning the body of your husband, Michael Rimmer, was discovered by his housekeeper in the basement of his house in Antibes. The Family Remainsis a domestic drama/mystery/thriller about found remains and the connection to a notorious crime scene from 30 years ago. There are lots of characters to keep straight, and the first book serves as the perfect foundation for getting to know them all.Lucy Lamb, her brother Henry, and Phineas Thomsen, the son of the psychopathic control freak who invaded the Cheyenne Walk mansion, have been scattered by trauma. I found the mystery behind the remains intriguing, but the storyline that interested me the most was that of Rachel and her husband, Michael. Q: You must have felt you knew the characters pretty well when you started writing this follow-up, but as you wrote, did they develop in any ways that surprised you? This is the continuation of that story, and for those of you who felt like you needed to know "the rest of the story" about Henry, Lucy, Libby, and Phin, your wish is granted because this helps to flesh out and further their storylines so you know what happens to them in the present day. Do you think his obsession with Kris is ominous, or simply due to the trauma he experienced as a child?

But I was also worried that I would miss the joy of bringing new characters to life on the page, so once Rachel Rimmer and Samuel Owusu arrived on the scene, that’s when the book really came alive for me. All the new evidence pointed to a connection with the dead bodies found on the kitchen floor all those years ago. It’s obvious from the start of the investigation that it’s a woman who has been murdered, or that’s what evidence of a blow to the head/skull indicates. Along with Miller, it was her job to find out what had happened at the house on Cheyne Walk, to uncover its secrets and rediscover her family. Do you think Henry skirts the moral line so well because he understands where the moral high ground should be?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.

After fleeing London thirty years ago in the wake of a horrific tragedy, Lucy Lamb is finally coming home. The reason you’re so drawn into this sequel: your desire to find out what happened to those characters! I'm obviously an outlier (what's new) but really this book just fell a part in the last 25% and I couldn't in good conscience give it anything higher than a one. I don’t want to say too much more as I don’t want to spoil the plot, but I was completely enthralled by this story. All the sinister and creepy details about The Family Upstairs came flooding back to me with Lisa Jewell’s help as she referenced many of the details throughout the sequel.If you’ve not yet read THE FAMILY UPSTAIRS, choose it for your next book club pick and discuss as a group how the story both functions as a sequel and stand-alone novel. I immensely enjoyed the “Samuel” chapters, as he is so good at connecting the dots and laying out the investigation for readers. MY THOUGHTS: I am so grateful to Lisa Jewell for overcoming her dislike of writing sequels and penning The Family Remains. The examination of these bones led DI Samuel Owusu to reopen a cold case about a missing woman that was last known living at the home on Cheyne Walk.

We get bird's eye views on the family's next steps and their dark turns as they continue to navigate their lives post-trauma during their teenage years. After just a few months, Rachel marries this charming, successful, and attractive man looking forward to happily-ever-after. You are never quite sure what he is going to do next, even while reading his first person perspective, which keeps the narrative exciting. I thought it was very clever, and I especially liked seeing Rachel’s relationship with Michael being portrayed, and us being able to see how that linked into Lucy’s story.We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. The fragile and lonely Henry, with his self-esteem issues, is feeling a tangle of mixed emotions and feelings, not all straight forward, he is obsessed with Phin Thomsen, wanting to know where he is, with rumours of him being in Africa.
