The Family Upstairs By Lisa Jewell

The Family Upstairs By Lisa Jewell


In a large house in London’s fashionable Chelsea, a baby is awake in her cot. Well-fed and cared for, she is happily waiting for someone to pick her up.

In the kitchen lie three decomposing corpses. Close to them is a hastily scrawled note.

They’ve been dead for several days.

Who has been looking after the baby?

And where did they go?

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this creepy read. It is a story that is told very well but your never quite sure where it is going to lead to. It is a unusual story about a mixed family that are bought together by unusual circumstances, I did find it a little confusing when the book tends to jump from character to character, it was hard to keep up with.The storyline was slightly weird but that is what drew me more into the book.  An intriguing read.
